Mother’s Day is approaching, and it’s time to celebrate the moms who make the world turn. Need some ideas for the mama in your life who does it all? We’ve got ideas for Mother’s Day gifts that combine all our favorite things – Brooklyn, food, flowers, and special treatment!
Here are FIVE Mother’s Day Gift Ideas for you!
1. Bouquets from Stems
If you're in the Brooklyn area, consider getting a beautiful bouquet from Stems. Stems is our neighbor in the Bushwick 'hood, and we love how they are committed to sustainability and eco-conscious practices. Stems sources local flowers, recycles and upcycles, avoids floral foam, chemical dyes, and bleach, and composts organic floral waste and we sell their custom made bouquets in store at Friends.
2. Treat Your Mom to a New Local Spot
If your mom loves good food, take her to Farm to People, also our neighbors in Bushwick. They stand for all the food practices we love and their food and natural wine list is to die for. Mother's Day Brunch or a leisurely dinner? Yes! Yes! Read about the collab we did with them here!
3. A Cookbook with a Shared Meal
If your mom loves to cook, consider getting her the classic cookbook Salt Fat Acid Heat by Samrin Nosrat. With 150 illustrations and info-graphics, this cookbook will teach her to cook delicious meals with any ingredient, anywhere, at any time, even without a recipe. Cook for her using this cookbook. If that’s not the right vibe for your cooking style, there are many other cookbooks to choose from at Friends NYC that would be great for Mother’s Day.
4. Show Love with a Unique Greeting Card
Show your love and appreciation by sending your mom a heartfelt card. Friends NYC has an awesome selection of Mother's Day cards that will fit any mood. Choose from funny, sentimental, or just plain cute, and find the perfect card to express your love. Got a mother who loves WORDLE? We’ve got a card for that. What about a card with a simple message “I’m so glad you’re my mom.” A little goes a long way
5. Say it with Self-care
Moms work hard and deserve some self-care time. Make a care package with eye gels, bath salts, or CBD products to help her relax and rejuvenate. Friends NYC has a range of self-care products to choose from that will make her feel pampered and appreciated.
Remember, Mother’s Day is all about showing your love and appreciation for the moms in your life. And giving her a much needed break! These ideas are just a starting point - be creative and thoughtful, and the mom or mom figure in your life will surely feel loved and cherished. More ideas at our Mother's Day Gift Collection here!
