This Mother’s Day—Give Well, Do Good!

More than ever, make Mother’s Day something she’ll remember and choose to shop local this year. We’ve put together a list of unique ideas from local shops and organizations in Columbus, GA. Let’s celebrate Mom with something that means a little more this time around. Let’s give well, while doing good.

In the list below, you’ll find something for everyone. We’ve got you covered whether you’re looking for the perfect item, a gift card to a local business, or you’re planning to honor Mom with a donation to her favorite local non-profit this year.


Happy shopping!

Don’t forget that gift cards are available from nearly every local restaurant and small business in the area! Treat Mom to a nice meal after quarantine at somewhere like Epic, 11th & Bay, or SaltCellar.


If Mom isn’t a foodie, consider a gift card somewhere she can treat herself post-quarantine. We’re thinking a day at Sunday’s Day Spa would be nice right about now!


Does Mom love to exercise in her time alone? Give the gift of fitness with a gift card for classes at River Flow Yoga and Wellness, Novo Fitness Studio, or The Up Factory.
