No matter how much you love your mom, Mother’s Day has a way of sneaking up on even the most dedicated of children. But don’t worry; there’s plenty of time to find her a great (and spirited) gift. So check out our present suggestions today and start shopping. Cheers!
Make your mom’s spring a bit sweeter with this very special maple syrup, which is aged in barrels from Upstate New York’s acclaimed Tuthilltown Spirits. Drizzle it on pancakes and waffles, or fix her a delicious rum-based Maple Old Fashioned.
Nahmias et Fils Mahia ($40):
Over the years, we’ve had liquor made from just about anything and everything. But recently we tried the fig-based mahia, which was a first for us. Historically, the alcohol is a Moroccan speciality (this one is distilled in New York), and the fruit really comes through in the finished product.
Mash Bill Truffle Collection ($26):
Combine two of your mom’s favorites, whiskey and chocolate, in a single present. Give her this aptly named nine-piece set of truffles (pictured above) from renowned chocolatier Vosges. The collection includes Scotch-, rye whiskey-, bourbon- and chocolate stout-infused delicacies. They’re so good, you may want to order yourself a second box.
Moscow Mule Mug ($15):
Begin your Mother’s Day lunch with a round of refreshing Moscow Mules. The 1940s-era classic, which features spicy ginger beer with vodka, was traditionally served in a copper mug. Purchase a pair for your mom at online mixology emporium Cocktail Kingdom.
Is your mom a wine drinker? Then get her this new corkscrew from famed French cookware company Le Creuset. It was designed to fit smaller hands and requires fairly little pressure to work.
