Baristamomii001Do not let us catch you ordering flowers from an 800 number! Head over to the Brookside Garden Center, and surprise Mom with a small tree! (We do love those tiny Japanese Maples, and our very own mother was moved to tears many Mother’s Days ago when we planted her a baby Magnolia tree.) Or, grab a couple flats of annuals and plant them for her. 551 Broad Street, Bloomfield

Anything from Kiehl’s would be truly appreciated (trust us, it would!) – Chelsea Square carries the whole line, and lots of other wonderful-smelling goodies. 601 Valley Road, Upper Montclair

Baristamomii004We’re loving the home furnishings at Nicole’s Place – what mom wouldn’t adore a set of nested toile boxes? Incidentally, most of their apparel is on sale right now (in season) at 50% off. 593 Bloomfield Avenue, Bloomfield

D. Marie is having an enormous sale this weekend – and they have lots of great housewares, serving pieces and home décor at rock-bottom below-wholesale prices. 20 South Park Street, Montclair

And please, whatever you get for Mom, skip the bow, and tie on a Very Dark Organic Chocolate Bar available at the Montclair Bread Company – (dark chocolate is the latest health food). 113 Walnut Street, Montclair

  1. And if you’re lucky you can buy that dark chocolate at the Bread Company from the hot counter boy.

  2. There’s a hot counter boy at Bread Company? I was only aware of the hottie at Gina’s across the street. Walnut Street’s stock is definitely up!
