I’m looking forward to spending this weekend in Brooklyn with my family celebrating my mom this Mother’s Day. Instead of going out to brunch or dinner which I feel like we always do, my sister and I are preparing a special treat. We’re going to make a homemade brunch with everything you could want – eggs, meats, a raw bar with oysters and clams, shrimp cocktails, muffins, bagels, home fries…you name, it we’re going to have it. For dinner, my dad said he’s cooking something special. Not sure what it is, but I’m sure it’ll be a treat.
I hope mom enjoys her day! She’s also going to be showered in gifts because she deserves it.
In case you haven’t found a gift for mom yet, I’m sharing a few ideas below. There’s definitely a warm-weather theme here (although it still feels like the dead of winter in NYC), but since summer is on its way I’m lured to products that remind me of the beach.
Bandana: For the fashionista, bandanas are super hot right now and this one has a classic paisley style with a little extra class.
Diptyque Palm Beach candle: This candle is summer in wax form. I fell in love with it the second I smelled it. If your mom loves laying under the sun with a frozen cocktail, she’ll go crazy for this one.
Straw hat: Ale by Alessandra is a new clothing line by Alessandra Ambrosio. It’s the perfect collection for this summer, with the perfect balance of island vibes and boho flair. This hat would be perfect on anyone!
Delicacies bracelet: Does your mom love to cook, or have a passion for food? You can design her a unique, one-of-a-kind leather bracelet with a sterling silver or gold charm that represents her favorite ingredients. Pictured is a brown thin leather bracelet with a sterling silver lobster charm.
Tocca Giulietta: This perfume is perfectly feminine, with a bit of a floral note that isn’t overwhelming. It’s the perfect scent for an adult woman who loves to channel her youthful vibes and have fun.
Lipstick: Dolce & Gabbana hit it out of the park with their Passion Duo Gloss Fusion Lipstick. It’s a favorite of mine, offering moisture and some shine along with amazing pigment. Grab your mom a perfect pink-nude shade that she’ll wear everyday until next winter!
Beach bag: From Helly Hansen’s new marine sportswear collection, this classic striped bag has perfect leather detailing and an awesome rope strap that makes it the perfect bag for the beach, sailing, cruising…whatever your mom has in mind for the summer.
