The Ultimate Palmetto Bluff Mother’s Day Gift Guide

Written by Palmetto Bluff

Our Top 9 Southern Gifts for the Special Mother in Your Life


Mother’s Day is just around the corner — a day to celebrate and honor mothers for all they do to support and care for their children. Although we believe mothers should be celebrated each and every day, Mother’s Day is an opportunity to make the mothers in your life feel extra special and appreciated. Luckily, the Lowcountry is home to some of the best artisans who craft unique southern gifts, and we’re delighted to feature their pieces at our retail locations here at Palmetto Bluff.


Whether you are looking for a special something for your mother, grandmother, sister, or wife, continue reading to discover our picks of southern gifts available at The Bluff and surrounding areas.


1. A Piece of Jewelry



You can never go wrong with a piece of fine jewelry for the special mother in your life. We recommend visiting The Paris Market on Boat House Row in Wilson Village to browse curated pieces of handmade jewelry. From gold plated earrings to chain necklaces and charm bracelets, you’re sure to find something that she will love!


2. A Bottle of Wine



If there’s one thing mothers need plenty of, it’s wine! Visit RT’s Market to browse their selection of fine wine, gourmet food, and other artisan gifts. You could even make her a gift basket with a bottle of her favorite wine and other Southern novelties.


3. A Unique Piece of Art



If the matriarch of your family has an eye for the arts, treat her to a unique piece or even a one-of-kind experience for Mother’s Day. As part of The Arts Initiative at Palmetto Bluff, we recently opened FLOW Gallery + Workshop where you can browse from a curated collection of southern art situated in the heart of Wilson Village. You can even gift a ticket to an upcoming workshop, where she will have the ability to learn from our Artist in Residence and spend time focusing on her passion for the arts.


4. A Spa Day



Every day of the year mothers are tending to their children’s needs, but on Mother’s Day, she deserves to be the one getting pampered. Treat the mothers in your life to a day of relaxation at Spa Montage. Book your loved one a restorative treatment from the menu of services, such as a HydraFacial or a massage, so she can spend some time unwinding and focusing on self-care. After a day at Spa Montage, she is sure to feel refreshed and rejuvenated.


Additionally, you could buy your loved one a luxury gift to bring the spa experience home. Visit the Spa Boutique, and choose from their selection of skincare products and apparel. That way, she can continue her zen long after she arrives back home.


5. A New Outfit



For the fashionista mom, you never go wrong with a new item of clothing for her closet. Visit Palmetto Bluff Outfitters or Treasures located here at The Bluff to browse their selection of apparel. Or, venture to downtown Bluffton to visit the many women’s boutiques located in the area. For fashion-forward and neutral pieces, visit The Haven Boutique located in The Promenade in Old Town neighborhood. Or, if you’re shopping for a mom who loves classic, preppy clothing with bright pops of color, stop by Gigi’s Boutique for a fun selection of chic clothing.


6. Tennis or Golf Gear



Mother’s Day is a perfect time to gift the active mom a few new items for her favorite sport. For the mother who enjoys playing tennis, stop by Wilson Lawn and Racquet Shop to browse their selection of gear and apparel. You can never go wrong with a new racquet, tennis dress, or tote bag. Or, if she prefers the golf course over the courts, swing by the Golf Shop for women’s golf apparel, accessories, and gear. After opening her gifts, she will be counting down the hours to her next round of golf or tennis match.


7. A Plant or Fresh Flowers



If your mother is a plant lover, consider adding to her collection of botanicals. Head to Garden Gate in Old Town Bluffton to walk through their outdoor nursery and pick out the most beautiful plant for your mother. You can also pair your gift with a unique decor item from their adjourning store.


8. Southern Home Decor



For the interior design enthusiast in your life, visit House Market to pick out something special for her home. With Lowcountry-inspired decor, kitchen essentials, and other southern gifts, you are sure to find something she will love. If you’re unsure what your mother may need for her home, you could also purchase a gift card so she can pick something out herself.


9. A Trip to the Montage Palmetto Bluff



Last but not least, there is no better gift than a trip to the Montage Palmetto Bluff. While you’re here, you can spend quality time living in luxury with your family in a picturesque setting. Play a round of golf at May River, kayak along the coastal marshlands, and end your day with a special dinner at one of The Bluff’s fine dining destinations.
