This Mother’s Day, give Mom a little something special from her favorite faraway island.

We all love a relaxing self-care Sunday. Whether it’s a good book, a nice glass of wine, or enjoying a delicious meal, Sundays are the best time to treat yourself. But this Sunday isn’t just any Sunday, it’s Mother’s Day, and the best day of the year to treat your superhero mom to a little self-care. She’s been there for you since Day 1 (literally), and she’ll always be your #1. Show her your appreciation with one of our curated gifts from Nantucket shops and businesses.


Roses are red, violets are blue, we love a great wine, and we bet your mom does too! Pick up a bottle of rosé at Epernay Wine & Spirits to toast to Mom and celebrate all she does. We recommend a bottle of Whispering Angel Rosé 2017 ($26), ACK Rosé Côtes de Provence 2017 ($19), or Miraval Rosé 2017 ($18).



Coffee-loving moms will thank you for this gift over and over again. Lemon Press just redid their coffee bar, and their extensive selection of caffeinated beverages runs from piping hot espresso shots to fancy unicorn lattes and everything in between. Give Mom a gift card so she can get her fix every day while she’s here on island.




Is your mom the chef in the family? Give her the Cru Oyster Bar Nantucket Cookbook ($40) so she can cook their famous lobster roll and all her other Cru favorites at home. Better yet? Whip up a meal from one of the recipes inside and present it to her with the book on Sunday!





What mom doesn’t love a little jewelry? We found these gold cane bangles ($110 each) at Nantucket Looms that are both chic and unusual. Made by local artist Judy Prohaska, these bracelets put a new twist on the island tradition of Lightship baskets. Every time she looks down at them, she’ll think of you and your shared connection to Nantucket.




This unique gift is a must for any mom who likes to separate herself from the crowd. 28 Centre Pointe‘s Vintage Hermès Scrunchies ($168) are not only one of a kind, they’re a fun and unexpected accent to any of Mom’s elegant outfits. She’ll love putting her hair up in the summer with this chic accessory. (P.S. 28 Centre Pointe also has vintage Hermès lavender sachets ($80) and key rings ($148) to complete any gift basket!)




Whether they’re in the boardroom or at brunch, busy moms will want to put on this Cutaway Dickey Jacket ($545) from Veronica Beard every day. The white color will go with everything, and its’ linen material is both professional and perfect for summer. Pro Tip: Veronica Beard has this blazer in more colors and a slew of other styles. Check out their website to see a few different options Mom might love.



Really looking to spoil your ever-loving mother? Treat her to a flight to Nantucket with Blade. She’ll love arriving to the island in style on one of Blade’s private jets, helicopters, or seaplanes. They offer a variety of gift options, including single flights and multi-flight packages, so you can pick and choose what’s best for your price point.
