Mother’s Day is right around the corner, and while we have the Mother’s Day showcase every year (you can get your mom entered to win by clicking here), there are also some great local spots to shop for mom this Mother’s Day!

I love shopping local, and every holiday I do my best to shop at some of my favorite locally-owned businesses.

Check out these great Central Texas shops and these great Mother’s Day ideas from each of them!


Woods Flowers in Temple

Every mom loves flowers, especially when they’re from Woods Flowers at 1415 W Avenue H in Temple.

A cookie basket for Mother’s Day? You betcha! The cookies here are the size of my face; “ Texas sized”, if you will, and each a meal in itself. I’d like a few and a Diet Coke, please! Visit them today at 716 Indian Trail # 170 in Harker Heights.

Gogo’s is my go-to cupcake place here in Temple. My fave is the blackberry cheesecake. Delish! Cheesecake, black berry cake, and a black berry on top. You can’t beat it!

Blue Bell Ice Cream

Kelsey Kilter, TSM

And last, but not least, Blue Bell Ice Cream. You’re not a Texan if you don’t eat Blue Bell. It’s practically the law., and what sort of Southern mama doesn’t like Blue Bell?

BJ Ward, husband of one of our sales team, Marianne, once gave his beloved some Blue Bell he found in the radio station freezer and flowers from a vase in the sales office he passed along the way.

BJ, I think Marianne needs a gift from all of the above businesses this Mother’s Day. You can pick up Blue Bell and flowers at your local Cefco or HEB.
