A Gift Guide for the Southern Mother

With Mother’s Day just around the corner, we’re looking to some of our favorite Southern-based small businesses for the perfect gift. 

Mollie Jenkins Pottery

Made in Columbus, Georgia, this beautifully crafted pottery is equal parts timeless and fresh. From gorgeously glazed plates to berry bowls to bowls of all sizes, this handmade pottery is perfect for any mother in your family.


Spice Walla

Chai and chocolate—what more could you want? This brand-new Chai Lovers bundle has your mom’s name written all over it. 


For the flower-loving mother in your life, there’s no better gift than a monthly flower subscription. This Miami, Florida, business will deliver a beautiful bouquet of farm-fresh flowers to your mama’s doorstep each month. 


Southern Baked Pie and Callie’s Hot Little Biscuit

Southern Baked Pie and Callie’s Hot Little Biscuit teamed up for a Mother’s Day treat that is almost too good to be true. This special includes a delicious quiche of your choice, a dozen biscuits, and even some pimento cheese. We guarantee your mom will be raving about this epic brunch for years to come. Order online for shipping or in-store pickup. 


Caroline’s Cakes

These gorgeous layered cakes made in Spartanburg, South Carolina, are sure to satisfy your mother’s sweet tooth. Their 7-layer Caramel Cake is without a doubt their most popular confection, but their Strawberry Cake is equally as tasty.


Rifle Paper Co.

Know a mom that’s always on the go? Then this cheerful floral canteen from Rifle Paper Co. is the perfect option. Use it in the morning to keep coffee piping hot or fill it with sweet iced to that will stay chilled all day long. 

Lodge Cast Iron

Every mom deserves some new cookware for Mother’s Day and Lodge is a top-notch option. They just released several new bright, gorgeous colors in their classic Dutch oven and we want one of each. 

Red Stick Spice

Give the gift of gourmet spice this Mother’s Day with a box of goodies from Red Stick Spice in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. They offer subscription boxes where you can choose between monthly or quarterly shipments of spices, oils, or teas which means this is the gift that will keep on giving. 


Stately Made

Can’t spend Mother’s Day with Mama? Send her a heartfelt card from Stately Made. This Birmingham, Alabama, business creates some of the cutest cards around for any occasion, and we simply love the sweet Southern messages owner Jordan Jarvis Hughes puts on each one. 

Xocolatl Small Batch Chocolate

Chocolate is a gift that never goes out of style, and this Atlanta-based company makes some of the best. For Mother’s Day, they created a chocolate-themed brunch-in-a-box so you can celebrate your mama no matter how many miles separate you.
