Mother’s Day Gift Guide

Mother’s Day is coming up Sunday, May 10th! And, while these unusual times are certainly changing our traditional plans to celebrate with mom, that doesn’t mean you have to forget about the holiday entirely. We’ve crafted a Mother’s Day Gift Guide that highlights some of the fantastic items (and gift cards, too!) you can easily order from downtown shops and then send to your mother to show your love and appreciation for her from a distance.


Downtown Shopper Appreciation Program

We continue to reward folks who are shopping at our downtown retailers at this time. When you buy items from participating retailers, you’ll receive a complimentary $5 Downtown Ithaca Gift Card to use when the shops reopen. The gift cards are going fast so make sure to shop local today!! For participating businesses, click the link below.
