Actually, go big for mom this Mother's Day; she deserves it!

But this year we're encouraging everyone to shop small to support all those small business owners working their butts off to make ends meet. Whether you shop at MudLOVE or one of our retail partners, you're not only giving Mom a great gift, you're also creating real change. We reached out to three small businesses for examples of initiatives they've created to serve their communities. 


Historic Perk is a fun coffee shop located in Springfield, Tennessee. Their southern charm is irresistible, and while we haven't tried their coffee yet, it's sure to be delicious! At the start of the pandemic they quickly launched an online shop to serve their customer while their coffee shop was closed. This week they put together some beautiful Mother's Day bundles that are available for curbside pickup! And if you're local, they'll deliver right to your door. Check them out here:

PETE & FREDDY'S Pages Aplenty

Pete & Freddy's is a delightful book store just down the road from MudLOVE, in Mentone, Indiana. They blew our socks off when they pivoted so quickly in reaction to the pandemic. These two sisters immediately started free local deliveries and continued shipping nationwide. Is your mom a bookworm? Her next read may just support a women-led small business!

Old Lutheran is a faith-based small business out of Moorehead, Minnesota. They are committed to selling products that are intentionally and ethically sourced (and we're proud to partner with them!). While they are an online-only shop, they are a fun crew. They take part in foosball tournaments at the office; can you tell they're competitive? They put together a Mother's Day collection full of witty and meaningful gifts just for Mom. Check them out here:
