Mother's Day is on the horizon, and we have rounded up a few of our favorite finds from small, indie makers around the country to add to your wish list. We know that gifts don't define the day, but if they add a little shine to it, we approve. Here are some options that we love:

If your idea of "me time" is a quiet soak and an indulgent beauty ritual, we love Florapothecarie's hand-crafted, plant-based essentials for bath and body. Made with love by Sami in Connecticut, this collection of vegan, organic favorites have absolutely no artificial colorants, fragrances, parabens, preservatives, or other toxic chemicals and they look beautiful, to boot. Our favorites are the floral bath soak starter set, her signature bath teas and the whipped body butter made with unrefined cocoa butter.

If home is where your heart is, these custom embroidery pieces from Anna at Olander Co are the perfect Mother's Day pick. This artist mama in Colorado makes beautifully detailed pieces that feel classic and new all at once. We love her birds collection and her tree studies best of all. And rumor has it she will have some brand new floral designs ready just in time for Mother's Day. Lucky us.

For the earth mamas out there, we are loving these cloth napkins from Dot & Army that are thoughtfully made by a mom named Jennifer in Georgia. Who are Dot and Army? Her beloved grandparents, who you can see in the cutest picture ever right here. We scooped up a set of her custom dinner napkins with an embroidered initial for each member of the family to make meal times extra special but also have our eye on these denim dyed favorites.

These handmade reclaimed wood rounds from North Carolina's Milner of ElleWoodsCo are the perfect gift for your fixer-upper side. Each one is a work of art in its own right, but we're partial to the custom monograms, the paint-dipped wood rounds and her personalized pieces.

Finally, mama may not need one more perfect tee, but she won't be able to resist this one from Courtney, the mama and maker behind Portland-based Arrow Folk. Its simple style and sweet moniker make it an instant everyday essential. We also love her “Every Mother is a Working Mother” style and this one for the dad in your life…because we love him, too.
