Great Gifts for Mom

The Mother of All Gift Guides

dailycandy mother's day guide chicago!

The woman gave you life. The least you can do is give her presents.

She Gave You the Fruits of Her Labor
Let the lady eat her heart out at the The Bristol, which will waive its no-reservations policy this Sunday at brunch to honor local moms. Reserve room for bread pudding French toast, braised pork chilaquiles, and the baddest Bloody Mary in the universe. Sate her sweet tooth with artisan baker Truffle Truffle’s special Mother’s Day confections (try the strawberry basil s’mores). Or better yet, make her breakfast in bed.

She’ll appreciate your sense of value when she unwraps Ashley Watson’s reclaimed leather Phoebe bag. Scoop up the best vintage accessories (we scored a mother-of-pearl pin that says — you guessed it — “mother”), retro serving trays, and minted hats at Store B (1472 North Milwaukee Avenue, at Elk Grove Avenue; 773-772-4296). Fill an earthy Roscoe Jackson reclaimed wood bowl with deliciously decorative chocolate rocks for sweet mama.

Mother will be impressed by your sophistication when she unwraps artisan ID tags made by local jewelry label Jules. DailyCandy readers get 20 percent off the entire line through May 7 (enter code DC20 at checkout). You can try paying her back with Jonathan Adler’s new zodiac pillows or a colorful geometric throw, but face it — you owe her big.
