She’s always been your rock. Funny how a 99¢ card brings a tear to the woman’s eye.
She Taught You Better
Take a picture. It’ll last longer. Snap up Clifton Henri’s darling kiddie photos. Scent her with a sweet something from Tokyo Milk (Lila, 240 North Highland Avenue; 404-584-5452).
She Knows Best
Which is why you live in her clothes. Go straight to the source at new Wish 4 boutique. Owner Christine Nagle has an eagle eye for beachy Gretchen Scott tunics and head-turning Safia accessories that are too good not to share (4920 Roswell Road, suite 15; 404-849-7694). Book swigging lessons at Atlanta Wine School.
She’s Your Biggest Fan
Match Mom’s shine with Nügaard’s new golden grass collection at Chelsea Parkes. So your tikka masala will never rival hers. Make her an authentic Indochine feast with cues from new Spices Hut. Make a date to meet her at cheapie drop-in Atlanta Yoga Club and dress her accordingly in a tank by local mom-daughter shirt line Starr Luna (Lavender, 5530 Windward Parkway; 770-772-9977).
She’s the Mother of all Invention
Ditch the robes already. Gift her with summery Theory neon slides from Tootsies. Can’t go wrong with something from Saks. This season’s catalog is illustrated by SCAD grad Waddy Armstrong. BTW: Bacchanalia and Floataway Cafe are taking Mom’s Day reservations for the first time. Book the latter now for white shrimp escabeche so good your mama will slap you.
She brought you into this world. And she’s willing to take you out.
