Made In KC Mother's Day Gift Guide

Mamas are worth celebrating, and although a handwritten note and fresh flowers are a wonderful way to show your appreciation this Mother’s Day, we think it’s time to shake things up a little.

Below you’ll find a gift guide to all things Made In KC for Mother’s Day this year. From handmade canvas bags to nontoxic skincare products – we got yo’ mama covered.

*All products are either available in store or online.



For the art & design enthusiast

If your mom appreciates art produced by local creatives, then she might enjoy a piece from the store’s gallery wall. Purchase a retro KC print design, photograph of the Performing Arts Center or drawing of Kauffman stadium. All of the available pieces uniquely express KC and make any living room or office look cooler.



For the mom that loves to grill

If your mom is a BBQ guru – Made In KC has a variety of sauces and rubs to make any batch of meat sweeter, spicier or a combination of both. Kansas City’s Cow Town Bar-B-Q Rubs and Seasonings are any griller’s dream in my opinion.


For the early-riser


The Made In KC Monthly Coffee Subscription is the perfect gift for your mom if she loves a good cup of morning joe. By signing her up, she will receive one 12-ounce bag of coffee beans from one of Made In KC’s partner roasters each month. It’s the perfect way for her to experience KC’s coffee! If you’re mom isn’t a coffee drinker, don’t worry – Made In KC has locally-produced tea options for the mom who loves a cup of green tea in the morning!


For the mama-to-be

Is your mama a llama? Although we don’t sell Deborah Guarino’s original – we have other children’s books and plenty of onesies. If a woman you know is about to be a Mother, gift her with a KC onesie or set of books for her baby! The onesies are so darling that you’ll want to purchase one despite having someone to give it to.


For the fashionista

Made In KC carries some of KC’s best locally-made jewelry and accessories. Waxed canvas totes with KC emblems, handmade necklaces and earrings by the likes of Coki Bijoux, Sierra Winter and Nickel & Suede, leather wallets and keychains from Sandlot, sweatshirts, t-shirts and more. You have the potential to completely outfit your mom with KC apparel this year!


For the lover of all things hygge


Blankets, candles, sweatshirts and throw pillows – all things that you’ll find tucked within Made In KC’s shelves. If your mom loves being cozy at home with a good book, gift her with a Happy Habitat throw, set of 5B. and Co. seasonally-scented candles or fuzzy sweatshirt to make her quiet time that much more comfy.


For the self-care devotee


I am somewhat of a skincare snob, so when it comes to buying face & body products – I like to make sure that they are free from nasty ingredients and won’t cause any adverse reactions on my skin. Thank goodness companies like Skin KC and Wild Wash Co. exist. The products are natural and organic, and are created with healing in mind. Gift your mom with the Skin KC Daily Greens Nourishing & Hydrating Repair Cream or Seaberry Anti-Aging Face Cream; she will never look back. Or, give your mom a set of Wild Wash soap bars that she can place throughout the home for gentle cleansing.


For the party hostess


If your mom is a rockin’ party host, then she might enjoy a set of locally-designed cocktail or champagne glasses to serve drinks in. Include some Boozy Botanicals simple syrups, throw in a Farmdog Studios kitchen towel and call it a gift basket!


For the slightly-hipster

Would your mom rock a KC ball cap? Made In KC’s Urban Apparel hats could be a perfect gift for this Mother’s Day. The hats come in a variety of colors and have an adjustable strap for sizing in the back!


For the customized-gift fan


If your mom loves personalized gifts with family emblems, monograms or photos, then she would appreciate a watercolor piece from Carly Rae Studios. The pieces are inspired by floral and whimsical patterns – perfect for the spring and summer seasons! You can order a customized piece on Made In KC’s website in time for Mother’s Day!


Whatever your mom’s personality is, Made In KC has something to suit her fancy. Plus, when you shop in store or online, you’re supporting Kansas City’s local artists and creators, and that’s awesome in my opinion.

Wishing your KC mama a very happy Mother’s Day and a wonderful spring season! Cheers!
