This Mother's Day consider a gift with a Missouri twist. Exclusive items from locations across the state would make memorable gifts for mom this year.
Here are a few ideas:

Find custom-designed stationary (like a Mother's Day card!), notecards, notebooks and journals at 1Canoe2 in Fulton. The shop also offers phone cases, hand towels, recipe boxes and more.
For moms who appreciate craft beer, consider a gift from Mother's Brewing Company, based in Springfield but available throughout the state. Their Little Helper variety is a perfect choice for IPA lovers.
Take the traditional box of chocolates to the next level with a gift from Bissinger's Handcrafted Chocolatier in St. Louis. The limited edition Carl Bissinger Collection comes in a newly designed spring flower wrapping.
For quilting enthusiasts, consider a gift from the Missouri Star Quilt company in Hamilton. Choose a pre-cut quilt kit, quilting book or a gift card so your mom can choose a favorite fabric for her next creation.
Goat cheese from Baetje Farms would make a unique gift for the foodie mom in your family. It's made in Bloomsdale, but widely available in grocery stores across the state.
For one-of-a-kind handmade gifts, check out Poppy's in Columbia. Jewelry, home décor items and paper goods are a few of the things that you will find.
Whether your mom calls Missouri home or it's a place she loves to visit, a gift from the Show-Me State is a sure way to make this Mother's Day a special one.
