This is going to be a really special Mother’s Day. The past three years have been tough for so many, but perhaps no one faced more challenges day after day than Mom. Balancing kids, work, community, and self-care is challenging enough – but these days, finding any sense of harmony can be next to impossible.
This is the year to go the extra mile when procuring thoughtful gifts for Mom. Here on the podcast, we’ve had the pleasure of interviewing the owners of some of Lake Norman’s most exceptional boutiques.
These businesses are purveyors of the loveliest gifts and delicacies, and they are your source for everything you’ll need to make Mother’s Day 2023 one to remember.
These businesses may be local, but their talents and offerings are world-class.
Here are 5 special Lake Norman places to shop for Mother’s Day this year:
Davidson Wine Co.
Vino! Founder Lindsey Williams started Davidson Wine Co. out of a desire to bring affordable and locally-made wine options to the Lake Norman area. They make many of the typical wines, including Merlots, Cabs, and Chardonnays. Davidson Wine also makes some more scarce wines such as Viognier, Petit Verdot, and Ports. They source grapes globally which allows them to make over 30 different kinds of wine using grapes from the best grape-growing regions in the world.
When it comes to giving mom the gift of fine wine, you’ll have a few options with Davidson Wine Co. You can purchase bottles directly, and have them shipped to your door or pick them up curbside. You can also purchase gift cards, or consider buying Mom a membership to their wine club! Make your gift really unique by having Davidson Wine Co. create a custom label for Mom. How cool is that?
