Shop Local: Your Mother’s Day Gift Guide

Mother's Day in JacksonvilleLet’s be honest, this Mother’s Day isn’t likely to be the kind of break that all of us moms really need. No spa days. No staycations or mani/pedis. Heck, even just getting some alone time would be hard! But that doesn’t mean that Mother’s Day has to be a total bust this year.

The Jacksonville area has tons of fantastic options to still make our day special, even while social distancing. Many local businesses are hand-delivering gifts, while others have arranged for easy pick-up options, so you can treat the main mom in your life without having to put anyone at risk. Read on for a few of our Jacksonville Mom faves — from sweet treats and caffeine fixes to gift packages and pampering, we’ve got you covered! (And then be sure to check out our guide to Mother’s Day Brunch: Where to Dine, Pick Up, + Celebrate In & Around Jacksonville — including some delicious takeout options.)
