Here at Native Poppy, Mother’s Day is our main event, our Superbowl, our *chef’s kiss* special. We plan all year long to bring you the most beautiful blooms for the mama figures in your life, and we’ve searched high and low to stock unique indie maker gifts and cards at our stores (and online, if you need to ship gifts nationally!). In the lead-up to Mother’s Day, we’ve done our research on the best and brightest gift ideas - and we thought we’d share the wealth! Below are some of our favorite Mother’s day gifts for 2022 to help inspire shopping for mom.
1. Fresh Flowers
Yes, we’re biased. But, a fresh bundle of blooms will never go unappreciated as a Mother’s Day gift! You can go big-time with an arrangement (our Peony Arrangement and Simply the Best Mom are favorites this year), or order her wrapped blooms (we love Mum-Believable).
Is mom more of a creative type? Pick up wrapped blooms and a few unique vases from our shop, then craft your arrangements together over mimosas.
2. Mama Necklace
Seriously, how cute is this Mother’s Day gift? It’s a great pick for friends who are mamas, or even dog and plant moms - this holiday is all about appreciating that supportive mother energy in your life, wherever it comes from.
3. Gift Box
If you want to shower mom with a little extra love, we suggest a Native Poppy Gift Box - our team has curated these Mother’s Day gifts to be a truly luxurious experience from start to finish. They’re the perfect thing to send to someone you won’t see in person, because we created these beauties to truly wow (even the packaging is decadent and gorgeous).
Just remember, our shipping deadline is May 1st for guaranteed delivery by Mother’s Day! And if you’re gifting locally, we of course have the option to add fresh blooms to your box.
4. We Drink Bubbles
What’s more celebratory than champagne? We Drink Bubbles is a local sparkling wine club that curates a beautiful selection of rare and boutique champagnes, shipping them nationwide. We know a few mamas here at Native Poppy who wouldn’t mind receiving this gift!
You can select a bottle of bubbles for mom from their online store, or gift her a membership (3 bottles of champagne per month? Truly luxurious). We also love that this company is mama-owned - their founder, Shiloh, is from Encinitas, and was inspired to start We Love Bubbles during her time abroad in Italy.
As a special treat for you, We Drink Bubbles is offering a discount - enter MOM10 at checkout for 10% off your Mother’s Day gift!
5. Becoming Mama Journal
For the moms-to-be in your life, this pregnancy journal is an especially wonderful gift to give. It’s designed to celebrate every moment of her journey, providing a sacred space to slow down, reflect, and self-connect. There are journaling prompts for all four trimesters, along with inspiring interviews, baby name inspiration, hospital packing lists, and more.
6. Poppy Diamond Necklace
We are so excited to finally carry fine jewelry at Native Poppy - and the Poppy Diamond Necklace is our favorite of the bunch! Created exclusively for us, the Poppy necklace is a dainty, elegant addition to mom’s jewelry box.
Not quite her style? Our entire fine jewelry collection is made from 14k recycled gold and features mine-free diamonds designed by local jeweler Taylor Custom Rings (another mom and dad owned business!). Whether it’s a milestone year for mom, or you just want to treat her extra-special, these pieces are truly one-of-a-kind Mother’s Day gifts.
7. Shop Good Facial
Pamper mom with an extra-special treatment from San Diego’s clean beauty mecca. Their facials are customized to each client, so mom will get a personal consultation with her holistic esthetician before she settles in for an hour of pure bliss. All Shop Good facials use all-natural, 100% clean skincare products - they’re a fan favorite here at Native Poppy!
8. Mama Earth (Potted Anthurium)
If your mom has a green thumb, Mama Earth is the perfect gift to remind her year-round she’s one of a kind. This is also the perfect gift for that plant mama in your life! We love anthurium for it’s gorgeous elegant blooms and dark foliage, and selected a pretty modern planter from our shelves to match - an elegant and long-lasting Mother’s Day gift.
9. Brunch at The Rose
Looking for a unique experience? The Rose in South Park is a natural wine bar and bottle shop, with an oft-changing seasonal menu for brunch, bites, and dinner. If mom appreciates a good wine, she’ll love trying the boutique natural wines offered here over a locally-sourced brunch (bonus: you can pop by our South Park shop afterward - we’re right down the street!).
Owners Chelsea and Rae have been sharing natural wines with San Diego for over 10 years, and their devotion and love for the craft really shines through. As a special treat, they’re offering complimentary bubbles for those celebrating on Mother’s Day.
10. Flower Subscription
This Mother’s Day gift is just the thing to remind mom for months to come that she’s loved and appreciated. Our Native Poppy Wildflower Club delivers bunches of blooms to mom on a weekly, biweekly, or monthly basis (San Diego delivery only), and you’re able to customize deliveries in a variety of ways - color themes, sizes, even add on a vase!
