#hellofromnoco After a little hiatus, the Seven County Explorer is back! And what better time for a come back then to celebrate the mother of all holidays! (Get it?!). Mother’s Day is coming up on Sunday, May 13th and if anyone deserves to be celebrated and pampered its mom!
The North Country Showcase has a wide array of beautiful gifts that mom will love. I have highlighted some here, but there are SO many more wonderful options in store. Please stop by and see Bonnie and she can help you #shoptheshowcase by picking out a beautiful and unique gift worthy of the woman you call mom!
For a Mother who has a sweet tooth
The Nut Shop International of Colton, NY makes small batch hard candy. Some even go far to say it is the best root beer hard candy in the North Country and the wintergreen is a customer favorite as well! If your mother is more of a chocoholic, like mine is, I would then recommend Croghan Candy Kitchens’ gourmet chocolate. They have a variety of flavors and a mix of dark, milk, and white chocolate. Personally, my favorite is the potato chip, bacon, and chocolate cup. It has smoked bacon and kettle cooked potato chips mixed with milk chocolate with a sprinkle of sea salt on the top. It sounds weird, yes, but it is oh-so-good! Excuse me while I clean up the drool from my keyboard…
For the mother who is difficult to buy for
D. Mainville from Massena NY makes the most beautiful stained glass sun catchers. There are many different designs in store to choose from so you are sure to find one that mom will love. All of them are made with such skill that anyone’s mother would be thrilled to put up in their window on display (you know, not that we finally are getting some sunlight!) and every time mom looks at it, she is guaranteed to smile and remember her favorite child!
For the mother who appreciates beautiful art
Here at the Showcase, we have a wonderful gallery of beautiful artwork with many wonderful themes that you are sure to find one to bring a smile to your mom’s face. We not only have the traditional paintings, drawings, and sketches but also some “3D” art depicting different furry woodland creatures. Come browse the gallery and find one mom loves or even bring mom down and have her pick out her favorite!
For the mother who may be just a little stressed
As a mother myself, I can guarantee you that she is. Three Spoiled Sisters, 3 triplet sisters from Northern NY, makes beautiful essential oil jewelry. These pieces are not only beautiful but functional as well. Some of the beads are lava stones which are porous allowing for the ability to soak up some essential oil for subtle aromatherapy throughout the day. There are many different styles of necklaces and bracelets that you are sure to find something she will love.
For the mother that wants to be pampered
Ok, I know this was mentioned on the Valentine’s Day Gift Guide but I am obsessed with Balsam Springs products. Balsam Springs, from Parishville NY, They are amazing and feel so luxurious. Bath bombs, soaps, shaving products, hand cream, and aromatherapy are just some of the Balsam Springs products that the Showcase carries. We can even help you put together a curated basket of goodies!
For the mother who deserves the night off
What is a better gift for the woman who cooked you countless meals? Cooking her one! We have a mouth-watering selection of beef and pork products from Tucker’s Black Angus Ranch and Pat and April’s respectively. I’m sure that mom would appreciate a nice home cooked meal made with locally raised meat.
For the mother who loves shopping
Maybe you are not sure what to get her or you want to take her out for a special day of shopping and lunch out. Get her a gift certificate to the North Country Showcase! We have hundreds of items that she is sure to find something she will love!
