Pepper’s Personal Assistants is excited to deliver great content that will help you celebrate the moms in your life, or even inspire some ideas on how to treat yourself. The Pacific Northwest is chock-full of amazing, creative, and delicious gifts and experiences, so let’s get started! From gorgeous ferns and succulents to tasty coffee and chocolate (and lots in between), here is our 2021 local gift guide for Mother’s Day.

Plant Shop (Capitol Hill)

Surrounding yourself with houseplants has been proven to increase productivity, calm nerves, and boost good moods. The past year was a tough one, so these healing benefits may be needed now more than ever. 

Forego getting your mom a bouquet of flowers this year in place of a luscious, living plant from Capitol Hill’s Plant Shop. Order online from their selection of in-stock plants for pickup or free local delivery, or opt for a gift card and let Mom choose.

Indi Chocolate (Pike Place Market)

Who doesn’t love chocolate? Rather than picking up some bars from the grocery store, look into supporting a local chocolate shop. Indi Chocolate, located in Pike Place Market, specializes in small batch, single origin dark chocolate, and even hosts virtual and in-store classes. If chocolate isn’t your mom’s favorite thing, Indi Chocolate also makes tasty spice rubs, teas, mixology kits, bath and body products, and coffee—so you’re certain to find a great gift for Mother’s Day.

Elm Candle Bar (Capitol Hill)

Nothing says luxury like a scented candle. Elm Candle Bar in Capitol Hill is a new candle store that specializes in allowing you to pour and customize your own soy candles in-store. Book a reservation for you and your favorite mom, or order a DIY candle-making kit to bring the sweet-smelling experience to your home—or your Zoom hangout!

Third Place Books (Lake Forest Park, Ravenna, Seward Park)

A book is an amazing gift—one that can open up the reader to other worlds, new knowledge, and adventure. Pass on a favorite read to the mom in your life, or if you’re not quite sure her taste, give a gift card so she can find her own escape between the pages. 

Local bookstores like Third Place Books (with locations in Lake Forest Park, Ravenna, and Seward Park) have endless options for new and gently used books, planners, arts and craft sets, and other creative gifts that would make a perfect Mother’s Day present.

Sometimes after a long day of running around, a nice glass of wine is just what the doctor ordered. Treat your mom a delicious local bottle from Left Bank, a wine bar and bottle shop dedicated to making natural wine more accessible (and affordable). Check out their online shop or sign Mom up for their monthly subscription service. Can’t choose? The folks at Left Bank are happy to curate 4, 6, and 12 bottle selections for you.

Penelope and the Beauty Bar (Downtown)

This Mother’s Day, embrace the idea of self-care in the form of massages, skincare, facials, and more with Penelope and the Beauty Bar. This luxury spa located in the heart of downtown offers countless ways to unwind and relax. From their high-end beauty and skincare products to their spa service packages and gift certificates, you’ll be sure to find something your mom (and you) can feel great about.
