Attention last minute Mother’s Day shoppers. Fret not—the East End is covered with fabulous finds for mom!

Being a mom is hard work, and sometimes the best gift we can give is a break from all those motherly responsibilities! What better place for mom to wind down than the tub? Sweet, floral treats from LUSH were made especially for turning her bathroom into a relaxing retreat from the world. LUSH has a wide-range of products in every price range—making it easy to mix and match items for a gift basket. Choose from the Rose Bubble Bar, Inhale Exhale Bath Bomb, Strawberries and Cream body lotion and massage bar and much more from the entire line of vegan bath and body products at

What makes a bubble bath better than a lusciously scented candle? I can’t think of anything! The San Francisco luxury home fragrance purveyors, Agraria, makes gorgeous woven crystal candles in unique blends that mom is sure to love. My Lavender & Rosemary Woven Crystal Candle, which arrived in a beautiful box, is a treat for the senses. When not in use, the silver cap keeps the fragrance inside and makes it a pretty objet d’art for the sink area. The blend of French lavender & Italian rosemary is enriched with the zest of bergamot and few drops of English Amber. Agraria Home products are available online at and at English Country Antiques, 26 Snake Hollow Road, Bridgehampton.631-537-0606,

And a note from a Dan’s Papers staffer:

Looking for something to serve at your next party? Try Bootlegger 21 Vodka. Made at Prohibition Distillery in a restored 1929 firehouse in Roscoe, NY, this 80-proof vodka has a clean taste and nearly no bite. It comes in a Made in America glass bottle with a decorative poppy flower design on the back. The poppy is traditionally worn to remember those lost in war, and was a popular symbol during the Prohibition era. The vodka itself was awarded gold medals at the 2010 New York International Spirits Competition and an Exceptional 90–95 Rating from the Beverage Testing Institute. Made from 100% corn, it is gluten free. Bootlegger 21 Vodka is available at several East End bars as well as many liquor stores. Learn more at –Brendan O’Reilly
