These Hudson Valley Etsy Presents Are Perfect for Mother’s Day

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 local adventures 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 a number of 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 forewarned—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 to make it a keepsake she’ll cherish for years.


Location: Red Hook

Anyone who grew up around Rhinebeck likely remembers popping into the now-closed A.L. Stickle storefront. Just as the shop itself charmed 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.

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.
