Moms deserve the very best this time of year, but we think they also deserve a Syracuse original! Read on for our list of Mother's Day gift suggestions that keep it local!
For the Sweets Loving Mom: Purchase mom the Hercules Candy Mother’s Day Basket for the ultimate in local chocolate.
For the Fashionista: Head down to The Changing Room and pick out a flattering top or unique necklace for mom to show off to all her friends!
For the First-time mom: Any first-time mama will enjoy some peace and relaxation at Mirbeau Inn & Spa. Book her a massage, facial, anything!
For the Cook: Pick up one of the several locally based cookbooks for mom on this special day. From Joey’s Italian, Julie Taboulie’s Lebanese Kitchen or the classic Dinosaur Bar-B-Que: An American Roadhouse, there’s something for every type of chef mom on your list.
For the SU Fan: Any mom would love some Syracuse Orange apparel with a vintage feel. The newly opened Scholars and Champs offers just that, vintage Syracuse and other locally branded paraphernalia. Look for some throwback Mets, Yankees and Chiefs items there as well!
For the Floral Loving Mom: Head over to the L’arche Mother’s Day Plant Sale Fundraiser and pick up mom some of her favorite flowers, for a good cause.
For the Sports-Fan Mom: Take her out to a ballgame. While the Syracuse Mets aren’t in town on Mother’s Day you can still gift her some sweet seats to any of their several home games during the 2019 season.
