THE most delicious smelling store! It must be the huge array of goat milk soaps they carry as well as many other wonderful gift ideas for mom! There are so many yummy scented soaps to choose from; Lavender with rose petals, Almond with almond slivers, Dragon’s blood, Mint, and Tea Tree-Citrus, just to name a few. We also particularly love the Sonoma lavender heated blankies and wraps!

Sportsmen’s of Litchfield


For sporty, adventure-loving mom! Sportsmen’s of Bantam is packed full of great gear and cute clothing to enjoy life and the glorious outdoors! They have all the best gear for hiking, yoga, camping, SUP, and fabulous athleisure wear. Perhaps she’d like a Chameleon TEKefx Stand Up Paddleboard! Stable, with the drive of a touring board, the TEKefx is designed for the paddler who wants to do more than just go for a casual paddle. Go, mom!

Grace Medical Aesthetics


Rejuvenate mom! Get her a facial that goes deeper than your average spa facial.

You really can’t go wrong with anything you get mom here. Pssst…won’t break the bank and looks impressive.

Thorncrest Farm & Milk House Chocolates

Goshen + Online

Hello?! Of course, mom would love some ultra-special Thorncrest Chocolates. If you get the chance, visit the store on the farm itself. Be sure to say hi to the cows, whose milk will be in your mom’s super fresh choccies. It’s an entire experience. Or order online, that works too! The Chocolate Shop will be open May 9th – 13th  – 10 – 5 each day in celebration of Mother’s Day.


New Milford

Bring mom for Mother’s Day brunch or dinner at Zaragoza in New Milford and you both win! First, enjoy a creative and fresh, handcrafted cocktail. Then, enjoy choosing a selection of yummy things from the wide range of tapas; classic, modern – land, sea, earth, pasta, and garden! Try our favorite – the artichoke stuffed with mascarpone cheese and wrapped in prosciutto. All moms receive a flower on Mother’s Day. ?
