5 “Pure Michigan” Gifts For The Mom In Your Life
Every year around this time, I ask myself the same question... "What should I get my mom for Mother's Day?". And every year, I always have a hard time thinking of something that is both awesome and something my mom would actually enjoy. My friend suggested something that helps her when it comes to scoping out the perfect gift, and that suggestion was to pick a theme.
So, I went ahead a did just that. The theme, you may have guessed by now, is "Pure Michigan"; Our state is so unique and cool that I figured I would definitely find a gift worth giving within that theme. And, to help out anyone else who might be facing similar gift purchasing issues, I put together this list. Below are 5 different gifts for the mom in your life, all with a Michigan theme. I hope you find it helpful!
Since "Mother's Day is the most popular day of the year to dine out," why not avoid the crowds and make mom a Michigan themed dinner, instead? You can go grab some delicious pasties from the General Store, or make your own, then grab some delicious Faygo or Vernors to wash it all down!
My mom always says she doesn't want anything for Mother's Day, she just wants to be with me. If your mom just wants to hang out with you, why not go do something fun and memorable? You can take her to Holland, Michigan for their annual Tulip Festival or maybe score a pair of tickets to a concert or music festival; Taste of Country is a local festival that's just a few weeks away, check out the info HERE!
Michigan is home to soooo many AMAZING sports teams... Spartans, Wolverines, Red Wings, Tigers... just to name a few. If your mom has a fav, why not help support her fandom by getting her a new t-shirt or hoodie? Or go big with a pair of tickets to the game?
Michigan is home to an abundance of breweries, wineries, and cider houses. Heck! Grand Rapids is called "Beer City" for Pete's sake, so take advantage! Head over to Bell's Brewery to pick up a six pack of Oberon, straight from the source. Or take a short trip to St. John's and go to Uncle John's Cider Mill... they have wine AND cider!
Literally give your mom a piece of Michigan; Etsy has all kinds of cool handmade jewelry that uses Petoskey stones (our state rock/stone) or Cherry Blossoms (our state flower). Check out some different selections HERE.
