PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) - Mother’s Day is Sunday, May 9. If you haven’t found anything for Mom yet, we have you covered. I found some great ideas at all price ranges, including things created by or sold by Arizona moms. We love shopping local!

Delicora Jewelry

Elevate your style with jewelry that will make you shine. Delicora was created by jewelry designer Sandra Martinelli. She created the line several years ago because she has a nickel allergy. Each piece is handcrafted with nickel-free materials using 14k gold fill or sterling silver. Delicora also gives back 10% of each order to charities like Feeding America and Girl Up. The pieces are simple to wear every day but enough to make a statement. Gem drop earrings start at $18.

Scented no-show socks from sockshh

If your mom likes practical gifts, this is it -- socks! But they’re not just your regular socks. Put a secret spring in Mom’s step with the help of Sockshh! Each pair comes in a recyclable package that can be reused as a place to stash your socks and renew their scent after washing them. Each color is paired with a unique scent to fit your feet and your mood.

  • Green for strength
  • Blue for peace
  • Yellow for joy
  • Pink for love
  • Black for confidence

You can find them on Amazon for $11.99.

Style mom with a S’Hug from designed Adrianna Papell

The S’Hug is a new versatile cardigan wrap available exclusively online. It’s designed with a touch of cashmere for softness and is inspired by three essentials in every woman’s closet -- a cardigan, a wrap, and a scarf.

The S’hug has a tunnel sleeve design, which allows for a seamless transformation from wrap to cardigan to scarf, while keeping it comfortably hands-free. When Mom is ready to slip out of the cardigan but still wants the comfort of a soft, cozy layer, she can simply drape the S’Hug into a stylish scarf or wrap.

Teal Botanicals

The changing seasons can do a number on our skin. Treat your skin with clean beauty. Using only natural and organic ingredients, Teal Botanicals was founded by Carmela Lerner, a nurse and mom of three. She grew up in the Philippines and sources ingredients like coconut oil, pili oil, and lemongrass from small farms in her homeland. Teal Botanical nourishes, leaving skin glowing. Their top-selling, super-hydrating facial oil is packed with antioxidants to help brighten damaged, discolored skin and prevents fine lines.

No more laundry duty for Mom!

Sudshare is a new on-demand laundry service app. Think Instacart for laundry. Laundry gets picked up, washed, folded, and delivered back within 24 hours. It’s available throughout the Valley. There’s no need to separate light from darks; they do it. It’s $1 per pound, with a $20 minimum on all orders. Pickup and delivery are free. You can still give as much or as little laundry as you want, but if it’s less than 20 pounds you’ll be charged $20. Think of all the time saved. Mom will love this!

You can find her beautiful jewelry at places like the Market at the Scottsdale Quarter or at
