Brownie Points Central! 10 Gifts NYC Moms Will Love

Holiday time is all about familial love, and while the best way to show your mom how much you adore her doesn't require a credit card, it sure doesn't hurt to bring something home as a token of your affection. Yeah, moms may give you that worn-out line, "I'll love anything you get me honey!," but we all know that easy luxury ended with noodle necklaces and hand turkeys. Instead of guessing or gift-certificating, why not give mom something luxe, something fragrant, or something yummy this holiday season that she really will (honestly) like? To help you score some brownie points, we've rounded up 10 great options that won't make mama's regift pile. We guarantee by giving this good, you'll be receiving even better...next year.
