The 2018 Return of the Burgh-y Mother's Day Gift Guide

It's back! From the dog mom to the working mom, we've got you covered with these locally made must-haves.


For the Working Mom

Phone dock and planter combo from Stak Ceramics - $60

Keep your mom’s office/desk area trendy and functional with this dual phone charger and mini green space from Pittsburgh-based Stak Ceramics. The sleek, handcrafted phone base is designed to fit most iPhones and other smartphones and connects to the phone’s existing charger. Bonus points if you pick up a succulent to go with it.


For the Pet-Loving Mama

Love of Dog (or Cat) Necklace from Songbird Artistry - $25

Do you sometimes question whether your mother loves her furry companion(s) more than she loves her human children? Only joking, of course. These delicate necklaces made by local artists feature various dog breeds, so you can pick up a design that looks just like woman’s best friend. It’s also a great gift for dog (and cat) moms. Fur babies count on Mother's Day!


For the Mom Who Needs to Relax

Skin & Tonic London Calm Balm from The Gilded Girl - $15

Because moms always are multitasking, this natural and organic skincare product works double duty. Skin & Tonic London’s lavender and chamomile oils help reduce stress and ease trouble sleeping, while the shea butter and other flower oils moisturize dry skin. It’s perfect for leaving on a desk or nightstand and picking up as needed.


For the Mom with Funky Style

The Wearables Collection from Jenna Vanden Brink Ceramics - $88

Each item in Jenna Vanden Brink’s wearables collection is hand-formed and high-fired in her Sharpsburg studio. For the mom who loves unique style, you can’t get more one-of-a-kind than individually handmade beads. Vanden Brink’s designs can appear eclectic or classic in taste depending on how they are styled.


For the Literary Mom

The Banned Books Candle Collection from North Ave Candles - $24

North Ave Candle’s book-themed candles are perfect for the bookworm who’s read (nearly) everything. Make mom’s house smell of gin, juniper and daisy while reminding her to read “The Great Gatsby” again.


For Pittsburgh Fangirl Mom

Sweet on Pittsburgh Gift Box from love, Pittsburgh - $40

You really can’t go wrong with love, Pittsburgh’s “Sweet on Pittsburgh” gift box containing two mom essentials — caffeine and chocolate. The love, Pittsburgh-themed mug holds chocolate covered espresso beans from local roaster Zeke’s Coffee. Make the 412, and Mom, proud with a “Keystone” PGH Sticker by Commonwealth Press and an Andy Warhol Bridge Magnet by Camp Copeland.
