What Are Your Go-To Gifts For An East Texas Mom?

With Mother’s Day coming up soon, we need to start thinking about the best ways to show mom what she means to us.

What are your “go-to” gift ideas when it comes to shopping for your mom? Do you shop local, or shop online? There’s something special about letting your mom know you got her gift at a cool local spot she can then plan to visit.

We’ve got some great artists and craft-savvy neighbors here in East Texas, and it would be a shame to visit Amazon or Etsy before taking a trip through town to brainstorm ideas.

Choc Candles





We’ve got a lot of options when it comes to candles. I know there is a candle shop next to Standpipe, but are there any more, other than Bath & Body Works and Bed Bath & Beyond?







Do you dash to the pharmacy at the last minute, or do you try to make something to show some time has been put into the effort? Are there any local shops that have cards?







Absolutely Fiction Books is sure to have something your mom will appreciate. They also have gift cards if you aren’t exactly sure of your mom’s reading tastes.

Technology is the gift of time, because you know you’ll have to visit your mom a lot more to explain that $300 piece of tech you bought her. On second thought, maybe stay away from technology.







Most East Texas moms like to display their comfortable Southern look with pride. Rustic designs, with Texas shaped everything.
