It’s Mother’s Day again, and you might be racking your brain over what to get the person who never seems to need anything – your mom. Even though she says she doesn’t want anything other than some time with her kids (or grandkids!), it’s nice to get her a gift she’ll love.
What’s better than gifting her something from a local woman-owned business? This way, not only are you showing your appreciation for your mom, but also for your local economy! Here is a gift guide for you to peruse:
Go 2 Tote – $198
Go Dash Dot
This versatile tote brought to you by the mother-daughter duo behind Go Dash Dot was made for the on-the-go person in your life. The classic design is made to withstand the unpredictable NYC weather, and it features thoughtful details, including a footwear pocket and a snap out pouch that can be worn as a crossbody or belt bag.
