Posted on Updated on

What to get for the mom who has everything? Here are a few affordable ideas from Orlando-area merchants that are sure to bring a smile to her face.

Porch Therapy at East End Market has a selection of succulents, air plants and other house-beautifying items that she can enjoy much longer than traditional cut flowers. That said, they carry those too.

4 Rivers Smokehouse is celebrating Mom all week long with strawberry Champagne cupcakes topped with Swiss buttercream frosting ($3.25), and a beautiful 12-pack of assorted cake balls ($8.99). Available May 8 – May 13.

Magpie’s Modern General in Sanford carries a carefully curated selection of small batch items from the useful (handcrafted soaps, from) to the utterly whimsical (Sky Candy Cotton Candy). What mom could resist a Florida tea towel?

Fig & Julep boasts specialty items for the foodie. Also on the “menu” soy  candles, spirits, and more.

Want to make mom’s day extra special? How about an #OrlandoMade card made from a local artist? Stop by SOS Art Gallery at The District at Mills 50.

Why Now: Like many cities across the country, Orlando is experiencing a renaissance of its urban core’s districts and neighborhoods. Mills 50, just northeast of downtown, is the “intersection of creativity and culture,” anchored by the city’s Vietnamese community (one of the largest in Florida) and complemented by artists, specialty shops and so much more.

Where to Go: Start the day with a stop at The District @ Mills 50 for a terrific introduction to the neighborhood. This community co-op highlights 36 local makers and their crafts, from soaps and candles to jewelry and kombucha, and serves coffee and tea. Afterward, lace up your running shoes at Track Shack, which has been keeping Orlando runners geared up and ready to hit the streets for nearly 40 years. Art is seemingly everywhere in Mills 50, from wall murals to artistic expressions on canvases in the forms of utility boxes and even trash dumpsters. Curated photography and art exhibits can be found at Snap! Space in the restored historic Cameo Theatre, and botanical beauty awaits in the 50-acre outdoor oasis found on the district’s edge at Leu Gardens. When it’s time to eat, there are plenty of options in this highly sought-after neighborhood, from BBQ at Pig Floyd’s Urban Barbakoa to Mexican at Black Rooster Taqueria (don’t miss the from-scratch tortillas); vegetarians can enjoy organic, local and fair-trade dishes at Dandelion Communitea Cafe.
