Years ago on a day you can barely remember, someone brought you into the world. That someone was your mom, and long after you were born, she made sure your lunch was packed, your shoes were tied, and you were taken care of. Next Sunday on Mother’s Day, you have a chance to thank Mom for all that she’s done over the years. What better way to show your appreciation than to pick out a fabulous gift from New York’s local shopping scene. We have some great gift ideas that you can find right here in town.
Shop the West Village cult favorite, Castor & Pollux for their Maggie bracelet. Celebrate Mom’s birth month and pick it up in her birthstone. As this is a bit of a splurge item, chip in with your fellow siblings so each of you can take some of the credit.

If the scarf isn’t quite unique enough, create her very own scent at Fragrance Shop New York, a staple NYC shop that has existed for over 20 years, though recently moving from its location on 64th down to the East Village. Choose from over 200 oils to make the perfect customized scent. They’ll even save your scent recipe on file so you can recreate it for your mom in the future!

If your mom likes to keep it classic with snail mail over e-mail, then head over to Foxy & Winston in Red Hook, Brooklyn to pick out some stylish stationery. British-born artist, Jane Buck, designs custom illustrations for both stationery and textiles. You know what that means, where there’s a thank you card, there’s a tote bag. Mix and match, or buy two of the same this Mother’s Day.
