Mamatoga's 12 Days of {local} Gift Guides: Mom Edition

mommommom2booksmoms3moms4paperLet me just say, this list is but a tiny jumping off point for all of the really great items out there for the ladies this year. And as a not subtle at all hint to Sean, I will take any of these under the tree and be very happy, thanks in advance. This studded bag from Piper is just the coolest, even if you fill it with goldfish crackers and tiny pairs of toddler underwear. And the gold number rings are a gorgeous way to keep your loved ones on your mind, pick their birth month to wear on your finger, or pick your own lucky number. At this price you can pick more than one to give.

Something monogrammed is on my wishlist all year round, and Silverwood makes the monogram modern with these vibrant necklaces. Stand out from the silver and gold with the fuchsia one, my absolute favorite. Make sure to pop in there before the 17th though if you want this custom gift under the tree in time. While you're there check out these unbelievably pretty clutches. A step up from their more casual tartan clutches I featured in my stocking stuffer list, these are a polished classic that will brighten any winter night. Pick the black one for an accessory you can carry all year long.

I love getting books, and Northshire has options for everyone on your list to choose from. I picked out these two because the one on the left is as pretty outside as it is inside and adds a fashionable touch to your coffee table, and the one on the right is just plain awesome for anyone who asks for the gluten free menu at lunch.

This Hot Toddy sweater from Pink Paddock. Enough said. (Sean please pay attention to this part, HOT TODDY SWEATER AT PINK PADDOCK. I will take it in a small. They may or may not be holding one for me already).

His and hers snowshoes are the cutest and most awesome couple gift, get out there in the frosty weather and explore Saratoga Spa State Park together. Ask the good people at Mountain Man Outdoor Supply Company to fix you up with the right gear, they really know their stuff.

Oh man, the TokyoMilk Dark line at Paper Dolls of Saratoga is just beyond. Created by internationally renowned perfumer and designer Margot Elena, TokyoMilk combines elegant design with unexpected essences, crushed and distilled for a remarkably uncommon sensory experience. All of TokyoMilk’s handcrafted fragrances and formulas are packaged in edgy yet evocative signature bottles, each one a work of art. And that calendar? That's just a thing of beauty. Ditch the one the school mails you every year and chic it up a notch. While you're at Paper Dolls, put the right finishing touches on any gift with any of their absolutely gorgeous wrapping paper? And the macaron paper?! Obviously the best one to wrap up the sweetest treat of all, a sleeve of French macarons from TC Paris Bakery. Their macarons are made in the authentic Parisian style, using Italian meringue, all the right ingredients, just the right temperatures, and perfected techniques. You might want to wait till the kids go to bed to tuck into these. Have a sweet holiday everyone...xoxo
