Updated May 5. New details added and expired deals removed.

Let's make this Mother's Day extra-special in Erie because it has been, well, let's say... a challenging year for moms.

So on May 9, let's celebrate the Erie moms and mom-figures in our lives by letting them know how much we appreciate everything they do for us the other 364 days of the year.

Here are Erie gift ideas, along with some craft ideas children can do to show their love on Mother's Day.

Thanks to everyone on our Facebook page who helped add to this list! We will continue adding to it as we hear of more Mother's Day specials in the Erie area so please check back often. If you have an event, brunch or are offering a special Mother's Day package at your business please email me at and we'll get it added to our list!
