The Mother's Day Lode

Gifts and Treats for Mom

kings county salvage!

The only thing Mom wants is some time with you. And maybe a movie or brunch. Or perhaps a simple piece of jewelry. But don’t feel like you need to make Mother’s Day a big deal.

Yeah, right. We’ll just skip to the gifts we’re giving our mom this Sunday.

You two go way back, just like the knickknacks and furniture at Kings County Salvage’s new shop. Spend the day antiquing or pick up wooden type blocks ($3-$8) and dead stock vintage earrings ($15).

Be sweet two ways. Eat My Chocolate’s fried almond and salty hazelnut chocolate bars, and cinnamon lemon patties ($3-$4) are spectacular if Gran is local; a dozen of Emily’s Homemade chocolate chip cookies sprinkled with sea salt ($30) are perfect if you must ship.

Brooklyn-based illustrator Caroline Hwang’s cookbook, Communal Table ($18), won’t fill your chair back home, but it will give her plenty of blogger- and chef-generated recipes to whip up on your next visit. It’s the first in a series, so you’ll be set on gifts for a few holidays to come.

Motherhood isn’t exclusive to humans. Let your friend know you understand her puppy love with a Robin Meyer reversible rain slicker ($69-$89) from The Urban Canis.

It’s the least you can do.
