OKG shop: She’s so unusual


Devon Green May 7th, 2014

Is your mom hard to shop for? How about this year you break from your pattern of picking up flowers from the grocery store on the way to lunch. Maybe you forgot that Mother’s Day is the same time every year. (It happens to the best of us.) Perhaps you just can’t think of what to get her. Fear not. Help is here.

Cottonwood Spa

Cottonwood Salon Spa 

35 E. 33RD ST., EDMOND

This salon has it all: beautiful decor, a knowledgeable staff and a reputation for quality service that its staff takes pride in. Book Mom for any one of its services, including massages, facials and pedicures. You can also combine services to create custom packages like the Half Day Getaway, which includes a facial, an aromatherapy massage and a spa pedicure.


On the Edge with Skulls & Stones

Maybe your mom likes to live on the wild side — no charm necklaces or fake bling for her. Let her show off her personal style with something from On the Edge. This funky boutique is filled with everything from tiny terrariums to floppy sun hats adorned with winged skulls. It’s the foolproof place to shop for the woman who taught you about rebellion.


Oklahoma Food Cooperative 

PICKUP SITES LOCATED AROUND THE METRO 

OKLAHOMAFOOD.COOP 

605-8088 

Was your mom all about local agriculture and produce before it was cool?

Is she up at the crack of dawn, perusing the farmers markets on Saturdays?

Does she have a thriving garden in the backyard? Why not give her access to the largest food cooperative in the state? What’s even better is she can shop from her computer. The co-op has 52 drop-off sites in the state.

There’s no better gift for a lady who loves it local.


Power2Give POWER2GIVE.ORG/

CENTRALOKLAHOMA/ PROJECTS

Allied Arts of Central Oklahoma is a group that helps arts initiatives get funding in central Oklahoma. It has partnered with Power2Give, a crowd-sourcing platform that serves only arts nonprofits.

Through the website, you can buy gift cards for Mom. She can go on the website at her leisure and choose which arts organization gets her donation. Let her know all that selfless volunteer work wasn’t in vain and you learned the power of philanthropy from her.


R&R Estate Jewelers

Diamonds are a girl’s best friend, and you could certainly do worse than wowing Mom with some custom jewelry. This is a full-service jeweler with a selection ranging from quirky vintage pieces to timeless classics. What you came for, however, is its most recent addition: the gun room. With a wide selection of antique and older guns as well as modern firepower, you’re sure to find one so Mom can pack heat in style.
