Luckily, options for gifts that care abound.  At Cities Insurance Group, we want to share some of our favorite feel-good gift ideas that both pamper mom and make a difference.

  • Weekend in LeClaire: Mississippi River Distilling Company-gives tours etc. Wide River Winery Tasting Room-for only $6 get a souvenir wine tasting glass and the opportunity to taste a variety of wines. 129-Great place to stop for a unique cocktail, endless wine options or a top of the line coffee. Chocoholic-One of my favorite stops something for everybody ranging from classic old time candies to the more adventurous chocolate covered bacon. The Pickers Store aka Antique Archeology is a must see for out of Towner’s. Grasshopper’s Store is one of my favorites-fine something unique and don’t miss the wine cellar basement. Tons of Bed and Breakfast options if you want to enjoy a weekend getaway. Also, many other restaurants and shops…as my Mom always says it’s all there in LeClaire.
  • Shopping with meaning. 31 Bits is Fashion for Good founded in 2008. 31 Bits sells jewelry made out of 100% recycled paper by women in North Uganda.  This Non for Profit Company uses fashion and design to empower women to rise above poverty.
