Is your mom the Lorelai to your Rory? Then this is the gift guide for you. She's your best friend, your ride-or-die, but what do you get the person who's responsible for bringing you into the world? We've put together a list of some fun and unique Mother's Day gift ideas to help you find the perfect something for your No. 1 girl.

Personal Paper-Cut
Surprise mom with a handmade paper-cut created by local artist Annie Howe. These intricately designed pieces are a beautiful addition to any home. Howe's pieces can be found in local shops such as Trohv and prints usually range from $20-$30.


Sassy Mug
Spell out for Mom how much you love her with one of Brightside Boutique's printed mugs. Find this mug and others in Brightside stores and online. Super Duper Mom Mug, $16

This mini handmade ceramic vase from local artist Ann Margaret Ceramics is the perfect gift for the Mom with a green thumb. OPAL on chocolate Mini Vase, $30


Print from the Heart
Although Foxwood Co. is known for their amazing wooden creations (also great gift ideas), their "Heartwood" print is the perfect gift for Mom. Its hand-drawn, heart-shaped design is unique and a great addition to any wall. "Heartwood" print, $35


Beautiful Bling

When you have a mom who has everything, you can never go wrong with a bag because, well, a woman can never have too many bags. Local company Almanac Industries creates handmade leather and fabric goods that are to die for. Find designs such as this Gold Floral Leather Clutch on their Etsy shop. Gold Floral Leather Clutch, $125


The Bees Knees
Do you rarely find your mom outside of the kitchen? Then get her something fun to spruce up her favorite room in the house, like a cool screen printed tea towel. Local artist Open Eyes Press creates modern screen-printed goods for the home. Let Mom know how sweet she is with this Honeybee tea towel.Tea Towel - HONEYBEE, $18


Mom's Night Out
