Make Mother’s Day Special with Our Local Gift Guide
It’s time to shower some of the most deserving women among us.
Caring for kids requires mothers be it all – nurse, chauffeur, chef, teacher, etc. They are the strongest lovers, fiercest leaders and most loyal advocates among us, and no one is more deserving of year-round gifts and adoration than a mother. However, for those who forget to appreciate the mothers in their lives every day, as we all do, Mother’s Day provides the opportunity to return but a fraction of the favor they provide us. So, get mom the ultimate gift (and maybe some flowers too) with the help of our Mother’s Day gift guide.
100 percent pure dark chocolate and English toffee brickle, $15 for 10 pieces
A GIFT AS SWEET AS MOM: Does your mother have sweet tooth? If so, give the gift of guiltless chocolate from Wendelchocolette. “The world’s most nutritious and delicious gourmet dark chocolate,” Wendelchocolette uses all-natural ingredients such as organic coconut oil, organic agave nectar (which is low cal and contains half the sugar of regular sugar or honey), 100% alkali-free dark cacao and organic vanilla. These ingredients combined create delicious delicacies that appeal to the eye as well as the taste buds. We recommend the dark chocolate and English toffee brickle for its extrodinary taste and rose-shaped presentation. An added bonus? You can order flowers to accompany your chocolates straight from Blume Von Wendel.
