Alex & Ani
You don’t have to buy mom absurdly expensive jewelry that she might not even wear often to show her you love her, the beautiful yet not too expensive pieces from Alex & Ani will send a loving message. I love that their pieces are not only stackable, because bangle music’s the best! The company is woman owned and they make efforts to give back to some good causes through their philanthropic arm/program. Send mom good vibes with a few pieces from Alex & Ani. Shop here.
Louis Vuitton Fragrance
The seven scents in Louis Vuitton’s perfume collection are intoxicating. You might want to start mom on her own collection or if looking to see which one she will really like best, get the miniature set featuring all. Want to take the gift to extra heights? LV also sells travel cases, because why go big. Shop here.
Nature Conservancy gala tickets
Spring is gala season here in Chicago and in addition to the Siskel Film center’s upcoming gala, the Nature conservancy’s upcoming 60th anniversary gala on May 19 is also on my radar. It’s sure to be a fun and fab affair because not only is it being co-hosted by 2 fab ladies I know Coco Meets and Susu Block, its taking place at Northerly Island and food will be provided by the lives of Chicago favorites GT Fish & Oyster, RPM Italian and Duck Duck Goat, what’s not to love! Get mom a ticket for a unique night out on the town with pre-drinks at The Gage.
Treat Her at Gibson’s Italia
What will be the new hottest dining destination when the weather gets consistently warm? that will be Gibson’s Italia overlooking the river and just right next to the River Pouint. The 4 story dining mecca from the folks at the Gibson’s group will satisfy any mood. Wanna just do cocktails? Dinner al fresco? Drinks under the stars? done, done and done! Mom’s selfie/insta game will be extra lit especially on days when she catches that good light and background from the 4th floor

We wish all the moms, grandmoms, moms to be and those that serve the role of mom in your life a Happy Mother’s Day.
