10 MOTHER'S DAY GIFT PICKS!

POSTED: 15 Apr 2013 | BY: MIRANDA LANZILLOTTI
Though we shouldn’t need an official day to find a reason to thank our moms, Mother's Day is a fun excuse to spoil these marvelous women. Show your mama your appreciation with a one-of-a-kind gift from the New York States of Mind (NYSOM) Marketplace. Crafted by artisans around the state, we have gifts for moms of every personality (EPICURATE, DECORATE, INNOVATE), each with a touch of New York sophistication, elegance and whimsy. Here are 10 top picks to make this year’s celebration the most memorable yet.

[EPICURATE]: For the mother who loves all things food and wine, we have a variety of tastes and gadgets to give her kitchen a little extra flavor and flair.

1. VEGETABOWLS WATERMELON-SCULPTED SERVING BOWL

Give mom’s china collection a boost with Vegetabowls's Watermelon Serving Bowl, which is slip-cast from an actual watermelon. It's a creative addition for her next dinner party.

2. CATSKILLS PROVISIONS "SEAL THE DEAL" GIFT SET

Whether your mom likes breakfast in bed, or a cocktail hour complete with truffles, we recommend the “Seal the Deal” gift set, which allows her to indulge in both.

3. SUNDAES BEST HOT FUDGE TRIO GIFT BOX

If your mom likes to indulge, consider Sundae’s Best Hot Fudge Sauces, because a bowl of ice cream isn’t complete without a drizzle of warm chocolate confection. We are drooling over the “Trio Gift Box” in Original, Peanut Butter and Almond.

4. GOWANUS FURNITURE CO. MORSE CODE "KENTILE" CUTTING BOARD

Personalize Gowanus Furniture Company’s Morse Code “Kentile” Cutting Board with mom’s initials to add a touch of innovation, craftsmanship and style to her cutting and serving needs.

[DECORATE]: For the mom who adorns herself and her home with high-quality and handcrafted accessories.

5. frittelli & LOCKWOOD BAMBOO SCARF

Light, handwoven scarves by frittelli & LOCKWOOD add a perfect layer of elegance and warmth to the often cool breezes of spring and summer. We recommend their Bamboo Scarf in Black and Camel for a versatile look she can wear all season.

6. ALICIA ADAMS ALPACA CLASSIC THROW

For a warmer throw, look to the Classic Alpaca Throw by Alicia Adams Alpaca, a line of woven wool shawls made from the Suri alpacas Alicia and her husband breed at their Hudson Valley farm.

7. WISHBONE LETTERPRESS GARDEN PRINT COASTERS

Add a pop of color and design to your mom’s coffee, dining room table or summer garden party with the Garden Letterpress Coasters by Wishbone Letterpress.

8. SMOCK NESTED BOX SET

If your mom loves to organize, let her do so in style with Smock’s colorfully printed Nested Box Sets (our favorite pattern is Oxford).

9. BE IN THE MOMENT STAR DOG TAG

Embellish mom’s furry friend with a Star Dog Tag by Be in the Moment — personalized with a name and phone number, each tag is truly one-of-a-kind.

[INNOVATE]: For the mother who likes pieces in her home to tell a story and spark conversation.

10. SIMPLYNU SALVAGED SLATE & RECLAIMED WOOD SMALL TABLETOP CLOCK

"For the mom who is always mindful of time, gift her Simply Nu’s Small Tabletop Clock, made from salvaged Douglas Fir wood that once stood as a staircase at a 1900s Tudor-style home in Queens.
