This Mother’s Day, skip the flowers and shop from Hudson Valley artists, crafters, and skincare producers for thoughtful, one-of-a-kind gifts.

Mother’s Day is one of those holidays that creeps up on you. As the weather warms up and the sun shines bright in the sky, it’s all too easy to get caught up with plans for backyard picnics and home cooking and, inevitably, forget about Mom’s big day. When you eventually remember a few days before the occasion, you’re stuck with a mad dash online to find something, anything to show Mom you care.

Instead of falling back on flowers and an e-card, get your act together ahead of schedule and treat her to a present that she will ooh and aah over for years to come. With the help of Etsy and these Hudson Valley artisans, the golden gift for mother dearest is only a click away.


Location: Beacon
Top Pick: Blue Speckled Beeswax Candle

This candle is a mom-approved pick for oh so many reasons. Not only does it come with its own container, but it also ships locally out of Beacon. It’s a treat to have at home, thanks to its light honey scent and 45-hour burn time. Be warned — Mom may want you to pre-order next year’s Mother’s Day candle once she gives this one a go.


Location: Newburgh
Top Pick: Mother’s Day Lilies Card

Are there any first-time mothers in your midst? Show them some love with this illustrated greeting card. The floral graphic looks like a page straight out of a children’s storybook. Inscribe a sentimental note into it for a keepsake she will cherish for years.


Location: Red Hook
Top Pick: “A.L. Stickle” Painting

Anyone who’s ever spent a day in Rhinebeck has likely walked past the A.L. Stickle storefront. Just as the shop itself charms with its hodgepodge of knickknacks, so too does this handmade painting. The artist has more prints featuring local haunts like Holy Cow and Red Hook Public Library in Red Hook, making it easy to order an image tailored to mom’s tastes.

Faith Adams Ceramics

Location: Beacon
Top Pick: Cicada Tea Cup and Saucer

For the mama who finds bliss in a cup of tea, this handcrafted cup is just the thing. Sized for about 14 oz, it’s pretty enough to make any morning cuppa feel all the more special. Pair it with mom’s favorite box of Harney & Sons tea to guarantee favorite child status.

Postage Stamp Jewelry

Location: Nyack
Top Pick: 1969 Keep America Beautiful Stamp Earrings

These funky chic earrings, made from a 1969 American stamp, feature an image of a picturesque highway with blooming flowers alongside it. While they’re not the standard bauble, mom will love the vintage spirit behind them.

P.S. The stamp dates back to the same year that Woodstock went down, which means these beauties are ideal for any mom who attended the peace and love fest.

Scripted Fragrance

Location: Warwick
Top Pick: Rescue Dog Soy Candle

We love the simple, adorable designs that mark every Scripted Fragrance candle. The Pet Collection hosts a cast of furry characters, each with their own identifying scent. The Rescue Dog offers scents of wildflower and fresh-cut green grass, evoking the essence of a pup you’d find running along one of the Hudson Valley’s rail trails.

T&J Handcrafted Soap

Location: Troy
Top Pick: Victorian Rose Lotion

Is mom’s fragrance collection the stuff of legend? Keep the sweet smells going with a lovely lotion from Etsy maker T&J Handcrafted Soap for Mother’s Day. The Troy-based brand uses natural ingredients like beeswax, which seals moisture, and avocado oil, which nourishes the skin. As for the scent, Victorian rose is a little romantic and perfectly floral.

Top Pick: Mother’s Day Card

Give mom the next step up from a store-bought card by scribbling a thoughtful message into this rockin’ card. Although this particular card is ideal for the holiday, Wishbone sells a number of sassier options as well. Even if you stick with this one for mom, do a quick browse through the brand’s Etsy shop for future funny notes to friends and family.
