5 Local Shops for Last Minute Mother’s Day Gifts

Did you wait til the last minute?

Mother’s Day is Sunday, and if you’ve waited until the last minute to do your shopping (Like most of us do!) then consider shopping local to spoil the woman who brought you life! Here’s a list of just five of many local shops in Vevay that offer gifts to go above and beyond for mom.

1. Edelweiss Floral

While they obviously have the most beautiful bouquets and live plants, a lot of people don’t realize just how big their selection of gift items is. Their store is packed wall-to-wall with gift ideas for mom, including soaps, lotions, candles, decor, purses, tote bags, stationary, and so much more! They will have extended hours this Saturday, staying open until 2 p.m. if you are really last minute!

2. Julia Knox House Gift Shop

Julia Knox House carries a great selection of Ring Candles and Cash Candles. You buy a natural beeswax candle which smells AMAZING, then as it melts down there are rings or cash inside that, depending on which one you choose, can be valued at the price of the candle, upwards to real diamond rings or real chunks of cash! They have other wonderful clothing items and primitive decor as well.

Located at 206 East Main Street in Vevay. Click here for their Facebook page for more pictures!
