Marble Pastry Board - $129.95
Growing up we always had a large wooden cutting board permanently positioned on our countertop. It's where my mom prepped every meal she made us. I'd love to get her this marble one as a way to say thank you for all those wonderful meals, as well as dress up her new (kid-free) kitchen space.
"My Father's Daughter" by Gwyneth Paltrow - $30
Gwyneth Paltrow's new cookbook is one of my favorite gifts to give to friends and family. The collection of recipes provides the perfect balance for any type of palate or, more specifically, any type of mom!
Rosle Dual Speed Milk And Sauce Frother - $25
What mom doesn't love a good latte? This Rosle milk frother makes the best at-home lattés I've ever had — any mom would appreciate that.
Essential Oils Collection, Meyer Lemon - $9.95
This one had me at "Meyer lemon." This gift set is a lovely way to say thanks for all the delicious dishes your mom has made.
Cross Back Apron, Stripe - $78
Is it me, or could this apron maybe pass as a casual summer dress? Seriously! Moms deserve to feel glamorous at all times, even in the kitchen, and this apron would be just the thing to make that happen.
Forlife Tea For One - $19.50
After poking my head into David's Tea shop in Soho a few months back, I've been completely enamored with the design of all their products. I especially love these tea cups for one. Couldn't you picture your mom storing this on her desk and enjoying tea all afternoon?
Flowering Oregano - $58
How stunning is this flowering oregano plant? It's both a treat for the eyes as well as functional, as the adventurous cook could use the flower buds in a dish.
Sheesham Mortar And Pestle - $24
We got my mom a beautiful stone mortar and pestle for Christmas a few years back. It's always in use or on display, and every time I look at it I'm reminded of how happy that gift made her. If I were ever to buy her another one, this would be it!
Shane Powers Ceramic Bud Vases - $16
I don't know exactly what it is that draws me to these bud vases, but I have a strong feeing any mother would love to wake up to them on Mother's Day. Take it a step further and fill them with her favorite flowers!
Napoli Vintage Napkin - $22
Welcome to my latest obsession: everything made by Heath Ceramics. Moms always need clean, fresh, gorgeous linen napkins!
Large Modern Cup - $21
Buy two of these handleless cups to make the perfect bathroom set for mom.
Vino Recycled Glass Tumbler - $39
After raising two kids, my mom's been left with a lot of worn-down mixed-up glasses. These recycled glass ones would be such gorgeous way to update her cupboard.
Pink Himalayan Salt - $12
Truth be told, pink Himalayan salt wins me over just from appearance. Those pink jewel-like crystals would make any mom swoon.
White Truffle Oil - $32
If one thing's for sure, Mother's Day should be all about indulgence. I'd say this gorgeous bottle of white truffle–infused olive oil is just the kind of indulgence food-loving moms need, don't you think?
