Whether you've run out of time to order online or you just want to support local businesses, this is the list for you.
For the Mom with the sweet tooth: Popsies
Right down on Pioneer Way, Popsies is the cutest old fashioned candy shop you've ever seen. Caramel corn, ice cream, candy, classic toys, licorice. If you have a mom in your life who needs something sweet for Mother's Day, you've hit the jackpot. Just don't tell her you bought her old fashion candy because it reminded you of her...

For the Mom with the crafting habit: Paint Your World
Head down there and grab a gift certificate.
Double bonus gift if you offer to watch the kids while she goes and uses said gift certificate.

For the Mom who wants to be pampered: Polished Studio
There are a rare few who don't enjoy the pampering, but this is a pretty fail-safe gift here. Pick up a gift certificate for hair or nails. My girl, Debbie, is the best. Love her. Tell her Annie says, "hi."

For the Mom who loves flowers: Haggen
Yes, I know this is an unexpected answer, and Haggens isn't technically a small business, but they are local to the Pacific Northwest and they support local farms by stocking their products in their stores. I'm letting this one fly.
I don't know if you've seen all my instagram posts about tulips, but if you do follow me there, you know I love cut flowers. I have a bouquet of flowers in my office pretty much at all times. 99% of the time, it's tulips. 100% of the time, they're from Haggen's. My reasons? They last longer, they're well priced, and they have an awesome selection.
This is the perfect accompaniment to any Mother's Day gift. While you're there, grab some food for dinner and give her the night off.
