Flickerwood Wine Cellars

Recommended by Danielle Bouchat-Friedman

After a taxing day, nothing stresses me out more than fighting the crowds at a bar—which is why Flickerwood Wine Cellars is such a find. At any of its three locations in Kennett Square, Oxford and Kane, you can unwind in the cozy tasting room at your own pace. The shop also sells wines by  the bottle and hosts events throughout the week, including live music and comedy nights.

Carrello by Currie

Recommended by Tara Behan

An ideal Mother’s Day gift, the new line launched by local salon-and-spa guru Randy Currie is imported from Italy. Its marquee ingredient is olive oil, which has been used for centuries for its anti-aging and antioxidant benefits. Organic and all-natural, Carrello facial creams, exfoliating body scrubs, shampoos and conditioners come in three fragrances: lavender, orange and talcum.

Luckiest Girl Alive

By Jessica Knoll (Simon and Schuster, 352 pages)

Recommended by Melissa Jacobs

Trying to be perfect is exhausting. But that doesn’t stop 28-year-old Ani FaNelli from striving to maintain her version of it. Trouble is, she’s as starved for self-esteem as she is for food—and she daydreams about killing her fiancé. Shipley School alum and former Cosmo editor Jessica Knoll’s debut novel is a plot-twisty statement on millennial life and the pressures that plague women. She appears at Main Point Books on May 14.
