Mother’s Day Activities

Second Sunday of May – Grandpa Shorter’s Exclusive

Mom deserves the best for all she does! Leave the hard work to the people at Grandpa Shorter’s Gifts in Petoskey! Choose a price point, answer a few questions, and leave the shopping and wrapping to our Personal Shoppers this year. Shop in store, online, or over the phone! 

Personally, we’re partial to our Mother’s Day gift baskets.
