The Best Mother’s Day Gift Ideas from the Museum Shop

Whether you’re shopping for your mom or a friend/family member who just had a child, the best Mother’s Day gifts are ones that speak to their personalities and interests!

If the woman you’re shopping for loves fashion, she’ll be thrilled to unwrap a one-of-a-kind hand-painted silk scarf by Vicki Ivancik or a pair of delicate Vegetable Parchments Blossom earrings. Or, maybe she loves cooking or decorating her home and could use a new crocheted trivet by Corchet or Shiraleah Acaia Wood Coasters.

Get inspired by browsing some of our personal recommendations for moms that enjoy cooking or decorating, moms that are fashionistas and moms who may need a little pampering in this blog, and find even more unique, handcrafted gifts in person or online at the Museum Shop!
