No matter who “Mom” is to you — whether they gave birth to you, raised you, or adopted you as their own — they all deserve a little extra love.
In order to get the gift ideas going, we asked you what makes a great gift or experience for moms in Chattanooga. Our guide with 15+ local Mother’s Day gift ideas showcases your suggestions + where to find them around Nooga. ❤️
If Mom’s sweet + likes them too
Someone as sweet as Mom deserves their dessert done right. Noogarons serves up delicious macarons + Niedlov’s Bakery & Café has your morning pastries covered. If chocolate is their go-to treat, pick up their favorite bars + bonbons at Cocoa Asante — they have an amazing Mother’s Day gift set available to purchase.
We’re taking you out, Mom
Don’t want to sit at home with Mom? Take them out to The Walker Theatre to see a performance by Daughtry. Spend your evening watching “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness” at the downtown AMC theater or take them on a shopping spree to the World’s Best Mom Market at The Chattery on Sat., May 7. And for the mom who loves to wine + dine out on the town, plan to end your day out with a nice meal at Bridgeman’s Chophouse.
“You don’t have to get me anything this year.”
If the mother figure in your life has never been one for extravagant gifts or celebrations, show them you’re thinking about them by picking up a bouquet of their favorite flowers at Joli Jardin or Southerly Flower Farms while you’re at the Chattanooga Market. A hand-crafted card from Blue Skies would be a great opportunity to express how you feel about their impact in your life. Sometimes a thoughtful word (or newsletter) can be the greatest gift to someone, in our humble opinion.
Mom reps Chattanooga best
Know a mom who represents Chattanooga unlike any other? Give them the ultimate gift of hometown pride with a branded shirt or hat from the 6AM Shop so they can strut their stuff around town repping their city. How does Mom take their coffee or tea in the morning? Maybe black, maybe with a dash of cream, but definitely in a Nooga branded ceramic mug.
Not seeing a gift that matches the mother figure you’re shopping for this year? Don’t stress, we’ve got more Chattanooga gift ideas for them.
If Mom’s imaginary best friend is Joanna Gaines
Gift Mom a sparkling clean house by booking a local, professional cleaning service (with great reviews) on Thumbtack. And for the mom whose garden is their pride and joy, have flowering trees, shrubs + hydrangeas delivered right to their door. Or if Mom just wants to pretend HGTV came to visit, book a getaway in a beautiful vacation house — bonus points if it’s to come visit you right here in Chattanooga. We have all the heart eyes for this home.
