Gifts for Momma. Second City Style’s Mother’s Day Gift Guide

May 5, 2010 • Magazine

As a woman FINALLY celebrating her first Mother's Day, this holiday holds special meaning for me now. Hey, it also means another day of gifts! Woot!


Helen Ficalora charm necklaces (in 14k gold or sterling) are all the rage in NYC. Pile them on and make a statement. I would love the 'L' for my son Liam and a dog paw print on for Nigel Tufnel. But the selection is vast. Get one here, or call Helen Ficalora as as of now, you can't order on her site. Shopbop carries the sterling collection only.

    Liam looks too cute in his head on shot!

  2. Violet says:

    I had to laugh seeing your Dr. Brown’s bottle in the shot. As a new mother as well, I now know the importance of Dr. Brown’s bottles. And I think I’d appreciate the hanky panky bouquet too now that I’ve had a child.

  3. Lauren-Second City Style says:

    Hanky Panky also has thongs that say “Mom” on them. I have a pair! Aren’t Dr. Brown’s bottles the best? Funny I just realized you can see his baby monitor, tummy time mat and of course the dog in the background! Congrats on your new addition. Isn’t it the best?
