Top Picks
  • Whether you're planning breakfast in bed, a family-filled brunch complete with Champagne, a tea party in the garden, or simply a phone call filled with reassurance (for you) and love (for both), be sure to treat Mom to a great gift, too. I picked presents that span the range in price and that will please moms with a variety of interests.

  • Garden-Loving Mama


    1. Birdhouse. Mom likes company out in the garden, of the feathered friend variety.
     
    2. Pruner. Colorful cutters ensure nothing will be overgrown for long.
     
    3. Planter. Colorful planters on the patio mean you could plant them with plain grass and they'd look good.
     
    4. Watering Can. Perfect for refilling vases and getting water into tightly packed containers.
     
    5. Outdoor Seating Group. Sure it's a splurge, but she's always wanted an outdoor room.

    1. Knife Block Set. So much spiffier than the black handled variety.
     
    2. Tea TowelShe loves you, but this guy's a charmer.
     
    3. Juicer. For the Goop- and Gwyneth Paltrow-obsessed mom.

  • Work From Home Mom


    1. Desk Lamp. This elegant lamp helps her burn the midnight oil.
     
    2. Fountain PenBecause she still writes letters to Grandma, who still can't work her iPad.
     
    3. Terrarium. Give her a touch of the great outdoors right at her desk. 
     
    4. DeskThis stunning lacquered writing desk is perfect for the bedroom, living room, or study.
