6 Last-Minute Mother's Day Gift Ideas in Dearborn

Mother's Day is Sunday, May 13.


Still searching for a present for mom for Mother's Day?

Dearborn's got options, and there's no need to revert to standards like chocolate and flowers (although those are great, too!)–get mom something unique, get it quick, and get it in Dearborn.

Here's where to go:

Sophia's Giftique

This downtown Dearborn store is everything a boutique shop should be: filled with accessories, things that sparkle, and things that smell good. Our recommendation? Walk into , point at something and buy it. Let the staff at Sohpia's gift wrap it for free. Then pat yourself on the back for a job well done.

Also: Stop by on Thursday between 5:30-8:30 p.m., when the Inkster Alumnae chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority will be at the store in support of local business.

Brightly Twisted

The secret's out: You can get directly from their website, or from their warehouse in the basement of Village Plaza. Shop from hundreds of one-of-a-kind, handmade shirts, dresses, skirts and more, or just nab one of their gorgeous scarves. The only problem will be choosing which one.

Buddy's Pizza

Take mom out to eat at and the restaurant will sweeten the deal: All moms who dine at Buddy's on Mother's Day receive a complementary dessert, free gift, and entry into a chance to win a day at the spa. Plus everyone gets to eat delicious pizza. Win-win.

The Glass Academy

is hosting their Glass Gardens Spring Show and Sale from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. on Saturday, May 12. Stop by to pick up a Percolla Reed, lamp, light, or one of the shop's many pieces of glassware. Better yet–take mom with you and let her pick it out.

The Glass Academy also offers glass blowing classes. If your mom's creative and adventurous, sign her up!

Retro Image Antiques

This is no garage sale, folks. Inventory at changes constantly, making it the kind of store where you can dig around for hours and still find new things. Jewelry, vases and vintage clothes are top picks to get mom something she truly can't get anywhere else–except maybe the 1960s.

Om Spa

Get mom some super-fancy spa treatments–with a discount! is offering 10 percent off any two treatments, 15 percent off any three, and 20 percent off any four from the Spring Specials or regular menu. Choose from treatments like a 24K Gold Facial or Lemon Chiffon Body Buff and Masque, or create your own package just for mom.

Still searching for a place to shop? These five options are just a handful of the many local stores brimming with great gifts for mom. Check out our Patch Places directory, with a full listing of Dearborn stores.

My Daughter and I give each other the same thing that we gave Mom/Grandmother for years - hanging baskets to brighten up the outside of the house all summer. We still remember on Mother's Day how we would go out and buy her a couple and when we got back she was always sitting on the back porch waiting for us!! Such good memories.
