Mother's Day Gift Guide

The Make-Her-Mother's-Day Gift Guide


the best-selling & definitely mom-pleasing

Our tried-and-true shop favorites (like our handmade butter keeper) that won't let her down.

I'd get the butter keeper for my mother except she already bought several of them for herself and friends—so I know it's a sure hit with mothers.

best cookware, best cook

Ragus, roasts, curries, and stews: make sure she's covered with the right pots and pans.

My totally put-together alter ego has a fleet of these blue beauties in her perfectly outfitted kitchen.

Fill the modular spice rack up with her favorite spices.

baking gear for the sweetest tooth

The icing on the cake: glassy dessert stands or a new set of mixing bowls.


handmade, heirloom, heart-warmers

Handthrown ceramics and textiles sewn with care are one-of-a kind for your one-of-a-kind.


the great (gifts) outdoors

Whether she's more camping or glamping, we've got sweet and sturdy picnic accessories, rugged coolers, and the goods to make a windowsill garden.


Mom's Day Off

Remind your mom that she deserves time to kick her feet up. Just add a soothing candle or a soft robe.

I'll be giving this robe to my mother this year—it's perfect for after the bath, and there's nothing she loves more than a soak in the tub.

pantry stockers: syrups to sauces

Introduce her to something she might not have tried on her own—before you know it, she won't be able to have her waffles without bourbon maple syrup.

I've given my mother our olive oil subscription—it reminds her of the happy times she's spent in Italy, and gives her the tools for great dressings all year long.
