Gift Mom something special this Mother’s Day– something with a little Brooklyn charm. I’ve picked out a few gift ideas to fit a variety of Mom personalities.
The Home Cook
If your mom enjoys cooking up new dishes in the kitchen, get her the Frankie’s Spuntino Kitchen Companion and Cooking Manual. I actually gave this to my mom for her birthday, otherwise, this would be my top choice. The guys behind the iconic Brooklyn restaurant share some of their best recipes like Cavatelli with Hot Sausage & Browned Butter and Escarole with Sliced Onion & Walnuts.
The Stylish Mom
Is your mom decked out in the best accessories? Get her these Seed Pod Earrings by Natural Abstract Jewelry, available at By Brooklyn.They’re classic and simple, but still unique and one-of-a-kind.
The Designy Mom
Brooklyn-based illustrator Claudia Pearson Illustration just launched Tea Towel Time– a subscription service for tea towels. Sign her up, and mom will receive a fresh new tea towel each month.
The Mom with The Sweet Tooth
Do you have a mom who can’t resist a box of chocolates? Skip the drugstore version and go for these Sea Salt Caramels from Nu Nu Chocolates, available at With Love from Brooklyn. They’re rich and decadent with a touch of sea salt to complement each sweet bite.
Some moms would rather indulge in a glass (or bottle) of wine over chocolates. If that’s the case for your mom, grab your mom a bottle of wine from Red Hook Winery. My favorite is the Jamesport ‘Clone 95′ Chardonnay, but if you go to the winery, you can do a tasting to find something to fit her wine style. Brooklyn Wine Exchange usually carries a few of their wines too if you can’t make it to Red Hook.
