Gifts for Mom by Aisha Gawad, May 01, 2009.
If your mother is like ours, she loves you dearly, despite your faults. But if she’s like ours, she won’t accept not getting a gift on Mother’s Day. And really, is that too much to ask (she raised you, you ungrateful cad?) Besides, it’s easy to get Mom (not her real name) something she’ll love, thanks to The Brooklyn Paper’s annual gift guide – this time with an eye towards the recession. You’ll be ready Sunday, May 10, in style.
The perfect gift for a mom who likes to keep a green home. Pratt alumna Diane Ruengsorn created a line of environmentally and socially responsible kitchenware designs: sleek cutting boards, salt and pepper shakers ($48), and salad bowls all made out of recycled materials.
