A Relaxing Retreat
Specialty Bath Soap
Known for embracing (and, we think, perfecting) the spirit of koselig, the Norwegian word for feeling warm and cozy, Soapy Gnome‘s buttermilk soap products are delighting to the senses and nourishing to the soul. You can purchase soap and other bath products online or in their downtown shop.
Vintage + International Accessories
FOUND Gallery in downtown Goshen carries exotic art, antiques, and accessories from all over the world, collected from the owners’ travels to Asia, South America, and beyond. Many of their jewelry and accessories come from Cambodia, Thailand, and Vietnam, purchased at fair prices from local artisans and merchants. So when you buy your mother a gift from FOUND, you’re purchasing more than just an accessory … it’s a piece of international artwork!
Bouquet, Wreath, or Potted Plant
Nothing says “Happy Mother’s Day!” like flowers. And no flowers are quite like Phoebe’s.

You can choose a pre-made bouquet in the shop, or give a custom bouquet with a few of your mother’s favorites.

Jewelry Fit For A Queen
Make the mother in your life feel like a queen this Mother’s Day.

The Taste of Indulgence
Gateway Cellar Winery in downtown Goshen offers an impressive selection of wine from throughout the Michiana region. Pick up a bottle or two for mom, or bring her in for a tasting and have her pick her own!
Sometimes, a one-of-a-kind gift is the only thing that seems right for a one-of-a-kind mom. One of Goshen’s most well-known and prolific artists is potter Mark Goertzen. You can peruse his pottery and watch him work at the wheel at his studio and shop in The Old Bag Factory.
