This Mother’s Day is going to be completely different than anything we have ever experienced, but that doesn’t mean it has to be terrible. With some creative thinking, moms will still be able to enjoy their special day and even enjoy food, drinks, and gifts from local resources. Below, we’ve rounded up a few gift ideas for mom featuring some local Westchester businesses.
Wellness Essentials: Staying well and healthy is super important during this time. Get mom all of the wellness essentials she needs from the local Westchester boutique, KAHLO Collective. Some great finds include their curated selection of candles, Apothecary essentials, jewelry, and more. They currently offer curbside pick-up at their store or you can peruse and shop online in the convenience of your home.
Mugs: Since we are drinking all the coffee these days, upgrade the mom in your life with a new mug. We love the cute selection of coffee mugs from All Together Now that you can order over the phone. They also offer curbside pick-up and delivery options.
Gift Cards: Support local restaurants by purchasing a gift card to your mom’s favorite restaurant. They can be used when the restaurant reopen or for take-out/delivery when no one can even think about cooking.
Fancy Provisions: Breakfast in bed isn’t going out of style, and this Mother’s Day you can still treat mom to a morning treat by getting some fancy provisions from Susan Lawrence Gourmet Foods, fresh baked goodies from G.E. Brown Fine Food, or premium lox from Mount Kisco Smokehouse. Place everything on a tray and let her enjoy a relaxing morning meal.
Order In: Another way to celebrate Mother’s Day is to order in. Many local restaurants are offering deals and family-style portions of their popular dishes. Some of these include pasta, salad, a main dish (protein) and a bottle of wine for $50, such as at Stone Fire and Sinapi’s.
Local Luxury: Get mom a special gift from a local boutique, such as Rubysue Katonah who recently moved their popular outpost to a new website. There you can find jewelry, home and beauty products, and cute tops, to name a few options.
Wine: Modern Barn Wine and Spirits in Armonk is offering virtual gift cards and free delivery on their selection of wines and liquors. Other local options include wines from Unwined Wine Bar and Kitchen, Armonk Wines, Leonard Park Wines, and Bedford Hills Wine and Beer Bar. Call ahead as many of these local vendors are offering curbside pick-up, delivery, and modified hours.
Digital Class: Digital programming is the name of the game these days. Support the mom in your life and local business by purchasing a class with something she loves. Some great options include art classes from King Street Studio or acting/writing with Jeffrey Tambor at the Ridgefield Playhouse.
Time: The gift of time is a precious thing and something any mom would value, especially these days of endless things to do and homeschooling. If you are able to, take the kids out for an hour (check out our list of local hikes) where mom can do whatever she wants.
