It’s tough to keep your gift selections fresh when you’ve been shopping for Mom for, well, as long as you’ve been holiday shopping. “Good enough” won’t do: Mom matters too much. But fret not — moms don’t typically demand the unreasonable, so here are a few simple, thoughtful options to match most any kind of mama.
Wonder Woman apron, $24.95, Paper Source, 82 Nassau St.
For the domestically inclined mom, this one’s a two-fer: It will let Mom know that she’s your hero and also hint that she should bake you some holiday treats. At this time of year especially, tasks in the kitchen turn tedious and taxing. New gear can infuse cooking with just the fun that Mom needs and will give her a much-deserved reward for her culinary superpowers.
Herbal hot/cold comfort booties, $34.95, The Walking Company, 46 Nassau St.
If cooking and cartoon cleavage aren’t your mom’s things, warm her toes with your love. After too many days of dashing through the snow, what Mom might need most is an invitation to rest. I can’t think of many better ways to recharge than with herbal footwear — especially the fancy kind that can warm or chill to soothe sore feet. Even if booties aren’t right for your mom, note that The Walking Company is stocked with every kind of cozy thing — from boot to sock to blanket — that will keep Mom snug this winter.
”Princeton University Mom” mug, $14, U-Store, 114-116 Nassau St.
If you really get stumped, you know what Mom loves most: you. When being with you over break is already the greatest gift she’ll get this winter, Mom doesn’t need much more. So don’t hesitate to go for this U-Store staple and remind her of her reasons to be a proud and grateful mom. When all’s said and bought, you know there’s nothing she’d rather do than drink her coffee and brag about what her kid is up to at Princeton.
