She gave you life! The least you can do is get her a nice present.


For the Fashionista Mom, consider a new outfit for spring! Buying clothes as a gift can be somewhat risky, so stick with loose-fitting, casual pieces like these from Last District. The dresses in particular are easy-breezy with a very affordable price tag. I can’t get enough this printed dress and I know my mom would die over this little A-line number! For even more savings, use the promo code BigCity at checkout for 10% off. They’re also offering free shipping for orders over $75.



For the busy Moms who are oh-so-over-heels, the only place to get her ballet flats is French Sole. With over 500 ballet flats to choose in a variety of colors, materials, and sizes, its no wonder they are “The Queen of the flats since 1983”. We’ve seen the imitators come and go, but only French Sole makes their shoes exclusive parts of Spain, France, and Italy. The Upper East Side brings in celebrities such as Katie Couric, Barbara Walters, and  our personal favorite, socialite Olivia Palermo.

For those looking to treat their mothers like the true queens they are, we have the treat for you. Luxurious champagne Armand de Brignac Gold Brut was the original for the Carrier Family. During a New Year’s celebration in the Northeastern French region Chingy-les-Roses, they set out to create the very best champagne the 21st century has ever seen. The fruity taste of the champagne hits notes of peach, apricot, and red berry, with orange blossom & citrus to follow. The Gold Medal winner from the 2015 New York & San Francisco International Wine Competitions, its a treat to splurge on this special day. Our recommendation is to pair the champagne with either seared scallop or Atlantic Mackerel. 


For the Mom who loves to cook, nothing says love like gourmet ingredients! For Spring 2016, the French brand Maille debuts 3 limited edition, vegetable-flavored mustards: Mustard with White Wine, Beet and a Hint of Honey, Mustard with Olives with Herbes de Provence, and Mustard with Carrot and a Hint of Shallot.

These delectable spreads are equally perfect for homemade salad dressings and marinades as they are for sandwiches or charcuterie accompaniments.

Called Les Jardins Secrets des Chefs – or The Chefs’ Secret Gardens – Maille’s newest collection brings the simple, fresh flavors of a vegetable garden into your kitchen in beautiful packaging. They are available for purchase through August 31 online at
