Mother’s Day Gift Ideas That Are Homegrown in the Hill Country

This Mother's Day, get Mom something homegrown in the Texas Hill Country.

Those shopping for Mother's Day gifts are often men and children, and, sometimes, they might need a little bit of, um, inspiration.

Here are a few ideas for gifts that will cause tears of joy from any mother, and they are made right here in the Highland Lakes and the Texas Hill Country.

• Candles are always good, especially when they are made locally like Circle E Candles or Orleans Home Fragrances. These candles can be found at many shops across the Hill Country.

• Cookies will brighten anyone's day, and a cookie beautifully made and decorated by someone else tastes so good to a busy mom! Look for a local bakery. We recommend Sugar Mama Cookies in Marble Falls — but get there early as they sell out quickly and are only open 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Thursdays and Fridays and 10 a.m.-3 p.m. Saturdays.

• Chocolate is truly a girl's best friend, and a mother is entitled to the best. Check out the goods at Choccolatte's in downtown Marble Falls. Its specialty is English toffee, but the chocolate is delightful!

• Coffee is high on a mom's list of “must haves.” Truly special moms deserve truly special coffee. Pick up a cup of her favorite Joe — or a gift card — at Numinous Coffee Roasters in Marble Falls, Mojo Coffee in Marble Falls, Mojo Coffee in Burnet, Unshakable Grounds in Burnet, or any other local coffee shop.

• A Texas Pecan Cake will go nicely with that cup of coffee. You can find these award-winning cakes at The Texas Pecan Cake Shop in Bertram.

• Hand pick a Texas wildflowers bouquet for a gift that is home-grown (and free!)A great Mother’s Day gift doesn’t always have to be something you can wrap, it can be a meal or an outing the whole family can enjoy. Here are a few local events that we know of that are special for Mother’s Day:
