Shopping Local for Mother’s Day

I don’t know about y’all, but my days are running together because of the stay at home orders. I only know when it’s Sunday because my church notifies me to come watch them on Facebook. When I realized that Mother’s Day was right around the corner, I got a little worried. Amazon shipping dates are still ridiculous and my mom is not the easier to shop for anyway. I needed help! So I reached out to friends for some ideas to shop local for Mother’s Day and here they are!


Women usually love jewelry. Here are a few of my favorites.

Mimosa Handcrafted  – Handcrafted in Baton Rouge by wife and husband duo, Madeline & Dawson Ellis

Laalee Jewelry – Handcrafted jewelry designed in Lafayette by Christy Mims

Turquoise Lily Jewelry Designs – Handcrafted jewelry designs by Erica Yoches Bunch
