Mom manages to juggle several roles, yet you’re still working on your part as good daughter. Score some points this Mother’s Day with a few thoughtful finds.
Swing by Frida Kahlo (900 South Miami Avenue, store 173; 305-456-1991) for a few all-natural votive holders ($15-$150) from local company More Than Candles. Though sculpted of wax, the vessels never melt away — and neither will Mom’s love.
When Dad finally takes her on that picnic he’s been promising since 1978, she can hide her favorite spritzer in a fabric-and-straw basket bag ($73) by Spanish designer Z & L. Sold at Green Grass, it’s got a top zipper and steady structure.
Her love of all things yesteryear can be stoked by Lesley M.M. Blume’s book Let’s Bring Back ($20), an encyclopedia of charming and oft-forgotten notions (like manners and crudite platters) from days gone by.
Mother of Pearl
If material goods trump sentimentality, outfit the good lady in Golden Goddess earrings with petite pearls ($108) from local designer TAudrey.
