Need a unique gift for mom? Grandpa Shorter’s carries a variety of fun, cute and unique gifts that mom is sure to love!

#1. Bike Mug – I adore this mug and actually have it’s sister, the camera mug which I purchased from J.W. & Son Mercantile a few months ago. I used to love shoes but ever since becoming a mom and drinking multiple cups of coffee a day; I LOVE mugs!!

#2. Leland Blue Jewelry – These pieces are absolutely gorgeous and come in a variety of styles and prices. I adore the Leland Blue Drop Necklace. It is such a fantastic statement piece that goes with everything. I don’t wear a lot of jewelry and only stick with a few larger pieces, so this is perfect!

#3. Brownwood Farms Products – I’m a total foodie and love anything to do with food. Brownwoods Farms are Michigan made, all natural and GMO free. The jams are delicious and would go great on English muffins and toast.

#4. Adult Coloring Books – I’ll admit it. I have a HUGE collection of colored pencils and fine tip markers that my kids are not allowed to touch. I love to color when I’m not working from home. It’s relaxing and just plain fun!

#5. Comfy Graphic Tee’s – Working from home does have it’s perks. I can easily get away with wearing whatever I want. I love graphic tee’s, especially the cute ones that feature Michigan on them!
