Gone are the days of thrown-together, last-minute gifts that lack personality—well, at least for Little Rock locals. We’re lucky to have local businesses within the community that put such care and time into curating and hand-selecting their inventory with treasures and memorable gifts that are as unique as the recipient. We’ve put together a Unique Mother’s Day Gift Guide just for you to showcase all these wonderful local shops!

From indulgent self-care DIY gift boxes for mamas who always prioritize nurturing others to beautiful hand-stamped jewelry with a personalized (and witty) message, this 2024 Mother’s Day Gift Guide is brimming with unique small-business finds. Show your adoration for the incredible moms by shopping these fantastic local Little Rock businesses. #lovinglocal


BEJEWELED | A LITTLE LOCAL SPARKLE

Bang-Up Betty Jewelry & Gifts | I’ve purchased many Mother’s Gifts from the talented Bang-Up Betty online shop over the years, and they’ve always been a hit. They’re perfect for feminist, quirky moms who appreciate a little humor (without skipping quality) and hand-made pieces they can wear daily.

Bella Vita Jewelry | You have plenty of time to swing by one of my favorite downtown shops to create a completely personalized charm bracelet, hand-stamped jewelry, or even an antique Mother’s Day locket. It’s a DIY process where you pick out your chain, metal plate, shape, letters, charms, etc. It’s so much fun & even something you can do with mom this weekend or Thursday, May 9th (tonight) at 7:30 pm; reserve a spot for a special Mother’s Day Cocktail and Earring Making Class at Rock Town Distillery. Reserve your place through the links above, like right now.

Sissy’s Log Cabin | Splurge on a pair of stunning earrings from their Spring 2024 collection or one of their elevated jewelry boxes or traveling cases for moms with plenty of sparkles but lacking storage. It’s an easy way to spoil mom this year & a gift that you and your siblings could all go in on. (If you have brothers like me, this works out perfectly. You get to call the shots & pick out something she’ll love, and all your siblings have to do is open up the Venmo app. win-win-win) Mom will love that you all came together to give her something special, and of course, it’s from Sissy; how could you not love it?

PRINT & PAPER | COZY SUMMER BEACH READ APPROVED

Electric Ghost + AR Tee’s | I’ve been a massive fan of Electric Ghost Custom Screen Printing Shop since day 1. They have the most comfortable t-shirts and crewneck sweatshirts (I know it’s summer, but sweatshirts are year-round in my household) with unique designs that are perfect for any razorback fan or who wants to wear their natural state of pride. My moms are the biggest Razorback fans, so naturally, this is one of their gift bag items & I might have worn both already to confirm they are so comfortable and didn’t shrink or fade after a trip through the washer & dryer.

The Social Type | If you want a quality card or stationery set, visit Mickey at The Social Type on Kavanaugh. It’s The perfect way to put the finishing touches on your Mother’s Gift for that additional personal touch. This is also the place to order custom graduation cards (which are just around the corner, hint, hint.), thank you cards, and invitations. While chatting with Mickey, she showed me all the items they could personalize, like cups for weddings, events, etc. For all the families like ours that spend every summer second on the lake, I thought it was a unique, cute gift idea to get customized styrofoam cups to keep on the boat or at the lakehouse that the whole family could enjoy.

PaperHearts Bookstore | I couldn’t complete a gift guide without mentioning PaperHearts. As most of you know, I visit weekly, and they always have new inventory. MK has recommendations for all book lovers, no matter the genre. It’s perfect for the next reading retreat or for snagging a gift card so Mom can pick up her reading material for the annual family beach trip.
