With Mother’s Day fast approaching and everyone except for essential/frontline workers in quarantine, it’s more important now than ever to put our dollars in the pockets of local small business owners while we make sure to spoil mom and grandma. Here at Ballaura, we are big supporters of #ShopLocal and are excited to share some of our favorite 2020 Mother’s Day gift ideas that support small businesses in Thurston County!

Batdorf & Bronson Coffee Roasters (Dancing Goats)

Our fabulous local coffee roaster Batdorf & Bronson is just the best, but they’re also offering a great deal on bags of their beans and brewing tools both in-store at their Capitol Way coffeehouse location and online at www.batdorfcoffee.com! Spend $30 and get 10% off. Gift boxes are also available in-store when you spend a minimum of $30.

Jean-Pierre’s Three16

The local restaurant is offering text-to-order menus throughout the week shared on their Facebook page regularly. Surprise mom with a dinner at home made by one of greatest chefs in town!

Compass Rose

One of our personal favorite shops is Compass Rose. The brand teased that some special Mother’s Day news would be coming soon on their Instagram and as always, they are offering gift cards for purchase on their website.

Vic’s Pizzeria

A super fun idea for Mother’s Day dinner, Vic’s Pizzeria is offering not only contactless delivery to your doorstep (and grab-and-go pickup), but also Take N’ Bakes! You can find their Take N’ Bakes at the Boston Harbor Marina, Tumwater Spuds and The Olympia Food Co-Op.

Rumors Wine Bar

Sometimes, she just needs a little wine to unwind! Rumors Wine Bar is offering delivery to your doorstep from their collection of delicious wines. You can order online on their website and ask about a gift card or their Wine Club while you’re at it!

Oly Alchemy

Our local all-natural herbal skincare company is Mother’s Day-ready with adorable gift box spa sets!


The most adorable flower and gift shop located in the 222 Market in downtown Olympia is all set to make your Mother’s Day memorable. They’re offering order ahead custom delivery bouquets and curated gift boxes, plus they plan to have an assortment of ready made grab-and-go bouquets ready for purchase at the shop.

Andi Clarke Jewelry

You can’t beat a local jewelry designer! Andi Clarke’s gorgeous designs feature pearl, sterling silver, sea glass and broken china. Does mom have china from grandma’s old collection or another special item that previously broke? Send it on over to Andi for a special custom piece that mom will cherish.

Yoga Loft

The beautiful yoga studio overlooking Capitol Lake might be closed right now, but they are offering regular programming online via Zoom! Mom can enjoy her yoga routine from the comfort of her home during quarantine, as well as in-person after quarantine as class passes count towards all classes in any format. You can check out their passes here.

Ballaura Wellness Spa

Last but not least, of course we also have our own Mother’s Day offering for you all! We’ve got $20 off gift cards purchasable online here. This will give mom something to look forward to after the lockdown is all over. The perfect de-stressing relaxation treat! After Mother’s Day, our ongoing gift card promotion of 10% off will remain.   What will you be getting mom for Mother’s Day? Leave it in the comments to share with the community! Together we can work to uplift our small businesses during this difficult time of uncertainty. Happy Mother’s Day!
