Art Terrarium is one of my favorite places in Des Moines, Iowa. No matter the weather outside, Art Terrarium offers the most luscious green plants. This space is a place for kids to create, but also a great place to shop gifts. Best part? They have an online store and offer pickup and delivery. Schedule her a ‘Virtual Plant Styling Session’ and get her a gift card and you are good to go!
Brightside Kitchen is filled with amazing yummies. You would never know that everything is strictly vegan. They are teaming up with another local favorite, Fresh Cafe & Market to offer a Mother’s Day Brunch delivered right to your door. Brunch includes garlic herb biscuits & mushroom gravy, fresh fruit, plant-based bacon, a special juice blend and more.
Creme Cupcake + Dessert is my favorite at all times during the year. Not just special occasions! If she is a lover of sweets order their bake and take cinnamon rolls for breakfast, or purchase their DIY cupcake kit for a fun activity to do as a family. Keep an eye on their Facebook page as they are regularly announcing fun packages to celebrate special occasions which may or may not include a fun cocktail.
If the woman in your life closet is anything like mine, they may want some assistance from an expert. The Haute Homemaker, aka Sarah Kelly is a wardrobe consultant and knows her stuff! She specializes in closet curating and wardrobe capsules. She will be able to help clean out the closet and create stylish outfits with items already owned. Your mom, wife, or best friend will thank you for this practical gift.
Hilary Prall is one of my favorite people to follow on social media. She is always inspiring me to do or finish a project around the house. She is so creative! If the mom in our life loves to decorate or has a favorite room that needs an uplift, buy her a gift card for a virtual design session with Hilary. You may even fall in love with the newly decorated room. That is a win-win!
KIN DSM is another one of my favorite shops in Des Moines, Iowa. It is filled with magical self-care items and jewelry. Buy a gift card or reach out via Facebook, Instagram or email and Heather, the owner of KIN DSM, can help select some amazing items to gift.

Wildflower Des Moines is not your average flower shop. Every bouquet I have ever purchased or seen from their shop has been beautiful and unique. An arrangement from them is truly a treat! They are also offering free delivery on all orders.
I stumbled across Your Private Bar a few weeks ago. We ordered a Mimosa Basket for Easter morning and it was perfect! They delivered straight to our door and created the cutest arrangement full of everything we needed to make mimosas. They create all sorts of baskets, but if you are wanting something specific, send them an email.
