A safe, always appreciated gift for Mother’s Day is a nice arrangement of flowers. Ann Arbor has many places for you to pick up an arrangement, but to get your search started, take a look at Lily’s Garden. Located just south of Kerrytown, Lily’s Garden has a wide selection of flowers and arrangements. Students looking to pick something up close to campus should swing by University Flower Shop located in Nickles Arcade.


Give a gift that can’t be replicated

Keeping things local you can pick up something nice for Mom at one of downtown’s many art and jewelry stores. Kerrytown Market & Shops is full of good stores such as Found Gallery whose pieces are created by local Michigan artists using recycled materials. Whether its jewelry or a new vase to place around the house, a gift from one of Ann Arbor’s art stores is sure to be one-of-a-kind.
