Melinda Sheckells, Las Vegas lifestyle and entertainment expert, shares recommendations on where to shop local this Mother’s Day.

Las Vegas is home to many ecommerce businesses offering online ordering and local pickup or shipping. In addition, brick and mortar shops are starting to open this week for curbside pickup. Here are some ideas for last minute gifts to snag for mom around town.

Leather Couture sells customized leather charm necklaces embossed with initials—up to 4 charms in nine colors. They come on an 18-inch silver chain and sell for $30 plus tax and delivery method. Local porch pickup is available until Saturday night and free wrapping is available upon request.

Most moms love flowers and petal expert Miss Daisy uses premium high-end blooms from around the world. Each arrangement is hand-crafted at the Miss Daisy studio on Desert Inn Road by an all-female design team. Arrangements start at $45 and are available for delivery or pickup. Last day to order is Friday, May 8 at 10 a.m.

Bohemian designer Jacquie Aiche has covetable accessories—rings, necklaces, earrings, bracelets and body jewelry—for those looking to get on mom’s sweetest side, ranging in price from $795 to $6,000. Contact local stylist @meitalstyle on Instagram for a quote on Jacquie Aiche with a Mother’s Day special of up to 40 percent off gems, diamonds and gold.

Local online boutique The Gray Way Baby has curated gifts, clothing and accessories for the modern family. In celebration of their recent launch, they are offering 15 percent off with the code MOTHERSDAY2020 through May 10. And while these items are available for online purchase with shipping only, the unique selection is well worth the wait. Recommended for mom is skincare from Butter Me Up organics such as the Calm Balm ($16) or Bath Tea Sachet ($15) and Newcastle Classics Muslin blankets ($52), which are so soft and snuggly.

Tiny Bloom sells Mother's Day bouquets; Neon Cactus Vintage recommends the Forget Me Not earrings; The Noise Project is offering gift cards as is photographer Myron Hensel; and Mike's Recovery features the Maggie's Blend Gift Box.

Customized hair clips and necklaces with words such as “Mama,” “Nana” and “Mom,” for the female influences in your life make the perfect gift and local designer @ContentaLizeth sells all of the above in her Instagram store. These creations can be shipped anywhere in the U.S., or delivered to Summerlin with an order of $50 or more.

Intuitive readings are all the rage and local psychic and tarot reader The Wise Unicorn recently launched her website for bookings. They range in price from $20 to $50. Treat mom to a look into the unicorn’s crystal ball.

Get mom ready for post-quarantine pampering with The Birthday Suit. The local waxing salon is showcasing packages of their products and services in anticipation of opening soon.
