Six Portland-Local, Mom-Owned Mother’s Day Delights


Who knows what moms want better than moms themselves? We love supporting local businesses and especially love when they are run by moms, offering something special for moms. Below are six Mother’s Day happenings in Portland (both before and after the day itself) by mom-owned operations. If you know of others, share them in the comments!

Give Moms the Afternoon Off 

The Wiggle Room aims to make it easy to give moms the gift of peace and relaxation. On Mother’s Day, they’re offering free coffee and $1 off on beer to those who bring in their littles while moms get some down time. The Wiggle Room will also stay open later than usual (until 4pm!) to give families plenty of time to properly schedule mom’s relaxation window. For more details visit the Wiggle Room’s website at Note: This Mother’s Day is set to be a toasty one, and the Wiggle Room has A/C (and cold beer!).

Join Frigg’s Mercantile for a 5-hr handmade gift-a-thon in honor of Mother’s Day on Saturday, May 12, 11am – 4pm. Drop in any time during the event hours. This can be a fun outing for moms (or mother-daughter/son duos!) to enjoy as a pre-Mother’s Day treat or a fantastic opportunity to make a handmade gift for yourself or the mom in your life! No experience necessary. Learn to make bath bombs, sugar scrubs, and lotions; Frigg’s will supply you with instructions, guidance, and all the wrapping you need to make for an extra fancy gift!

Lee Ann moved to Portland in 2008 following an eight-year stint in Paris, France, where her eldest was born. Though she thought nowhere could compete with the City of Lights, the City of Roses immediately stole her heart. As a great place to raise kids, she loves getting out and exploring the city and the PNW with her husband and four young children. While in France, Lee Ann earned a B.A. in Journalism and a Master's in Linguistics at the American University of Paris and L'Universite de Paris - La Sorbonne, respectively, before returning stateside to become a Speech-Language Pathologist through the Portland State University graduate program. Throughout her studies, she kept one foot in the digital world, writing content for publications and creating websites for clients. After many years as a medical Speech Pathologist, she left to the field to continue freelance writing, become the owner of Portland Mom Collective (!), and to create a crafting/workshop space for PDX makers. She likes to spend whatever "me" time she can muster making soap, geocaching, jogging, sewing, and staring at the wall with no small humans talking to her.
