It's no easy task finding a gift for a loved one, let alone the woman who bore you. So in honor of Mother's Day, we've laid out a list of some of our favorite places in Dallas to shop for Mom.

Avant Garden
In addition to beautiful custom-made arrangements, this floral shop in Highland Park Village offers an assortment of elegant gifts. Find tabletop ceramics, vases, scented candles, artful greeting cards or sculptural succulents.  

Bishop Street Market 
This Bishop Arts District store is filled with all kinds of gifts — from tabletop accessories and handmade scarves and jewelry to soaps and dishes. If you need a card to tuck into your gift, Bishop Street Market has an entire wall of sentiments from which to choose.

Blue Print
This chic Uptown home furnishings store, located in an old house, sells a variety of sophisticated accoutrements for the abode. Shop for fine art, antiques, colorful vases and lighting, coffee table books, or — if you want to go big — custom furniture.

Calypso St. Barth
Calypso St. Barth's home and resort wear stores at the Plaza at Preston Center recently combined into a bigger and better, 3,176-square-foot space. For the mom who loves to travel — or dreams about getting away from it all — find breezy, beach-inspired mini and maxi dresses or festive throws and pillows for her favorite room. 

Haven
This cute Uptown boutique boasts contemporary fashions and accessories at affordable prices. For Mom, shop for looks by Joie, jewelry by Kenneth Jay Lane, or handbags by Botkier or new Dallas designer Kelly Wynne

Lotus Shop 
The Lotus Shop is as special as the Crow Collection of Asian Art in which it resides. Shop for an Asian art replica, Seiryu flower basket, tea set, or a unique piece of jewelry from hot Dallas designer Julie Cohn

Napa Home
Napa Home has everything for the avid decorator. Shop for small sculptures, modern lamps, intricate rugs, outdoor pots, or scented candles and diffusers. If your mom is the entertaining type, opt for sleek Thomas Keller dinnerware or float glassware. 

Neiman Marcus NorthPark
The second floor of Neiman Marcus NorthPark Center recently debuted the exquisite Van Cleef & Arpels in-store boutique. It's the only place in Dallas you can purchase the high-end French jewelry. Mom deserves a black onyx Alhambra four-leaf clover necklace or anything from the Perlée collection. 

Piermarini Boutique
Owner John Piermarini fills his cool, contemporary shop with a well-edited selection of clothing, and many lines are exclusive to Dallas, including Timo Weiland, Osklen, Rodebjer and J Apostrophe. No item in the store is over $500, so you can find something for Mom well within your budget. 

Pilates Barre
The University Park Pilates studio recently unveiled Shop Barre, featuring a variety of racer-back tanks, Alternative Apparel wraps, yoga pants, Love Quotes scarves, Emi-Jay hair ties and ShopBarre's private label pieces — any of which are sure to please an active mom.
