Mother's Day is this weekend! Check out our hand-picked gift ideas from our vintage experts at our SoHo location.
Marietta - "There is a nice relationship thats built around a piece of jewelry. Jewelry is very personal and since my mom lives so far away I'd like to give her something so she can remember the occasion and the relationship."

Stacey - "My mom would love everything about this; the pink hue, the deco decadence... It's basically the perfect gift. Except she'd probably use it as a candy dish, versus an ashtray. She doesn't smoke."

Kate - "My mother would enjoy this book The Encyclopedia of Decorative Arts. She has always collected antique trinkets and art pieces for as long as I can remember, and I have learned all that I know about antique housewares from her and our days of flea marketing together. This book probably features some pieces that my mother even has herself!"

Lara - "My mother has impeccable taste, so she's difficult to buy for. What do you get the woman who has everything? An Hermes scarf is classic, effortless and timeless. I love this one for my mother because it's in her colors--deep reds, purples and a little coral for contrast. But my mother isn't the type to tie it around her shoulders, that's too matronly. I can see my mom tying this scarf around her neck like an ascot, and pairing it with a riding blazer or a smart trench. I could even see her tying it onto the strap of her favorite Prada bag, just like I would! There are so many ways to wear a scarf, which makes it a great gift. Add the cache of Hermes, and it's be a memorable gift."

Kody - "Every time I go home I manage to tear apart my mom's wardrobe because she is a bit of a sentimentalist (ahem... pack rat). With out fail, I find the best pairs of high waisted Levis; perfectly worn, perfectly torn, perfect. After creating an outfit from her clothes she cavalierly mentions how she wore the exact same thing to a party in the fields of the Kettle Moraine or to the Moody Blues concert at Alpine Valley--the only thing missing is Frye boots. She goes on to tell me that her boots were "her thing"--she wouldn't go far without her Fryes, but it was the one thing my grandmother managed to sell in a garage sale. Thus, if I were to buy anything for my momma from What Goes Around Comes Around it would be a kick a** pair of Fryes; black, brown, tan, distressed you name it--she would love them and dance around like it the summer of 1979."

Christian - "My mother has lived by the beach her whole life and has always enjoyed a life of simplicity and relaxation. I feel this bag describes her personality perfectly: light, simple, with a touch of class."

Kelly - "Ornate turquoise jewelry pairs so well with white lightweight pieces and tis the season! It makes a statement and can be paired with many outfits, including our Victoria Top

Jade - "One of the many things I admire about my mother is her green thumb. She has always impressed me (and the neighbors) with her curated gardens. Our lilac buses are a notable smell of childhood memories and although I don't have a backyard to carry on to the legacy, I do seek her motherly advice when it comes to my indoor cactus. She is also a sun goddess at heart so Brixton sun hat would be the perfect gift. It's practical, fun, and a step up from her usual garden garb."
