The Ultimate Mother's Day Gift Guide
Paddywax Salted Grapefruit Soy Candle
The vibrant citrus scent of this hand poured, soy wax candle is sure to brighten up any room in Mom’s house. And with its grapefruit pink, vintage-inspired vessel, it’s quite a looker too.
Kapoosh Slotless Stainless Steel Knife Block
This slotless knife block is a stylish, safe, and sanitary vessel for all of Mom’s favorite knives—from her chef’s knife to a set of steak knives. The block’s food safe polypropylene “Freedom Rods” gently conform to your knives, better safeguarding them against wear than a traditional, slotted knife block. The rods are also less prone to acquiring dust, grease, and other kitchen residue than the slots of a typical knife block, but are removable and dishwasher safe for easy routine cleaning. We love the sleek look of stainless steel, but you can also opt for a solid hardwood base.

Oh, and we should mention, the 25-ounce canteen is also the perfect size to hold an entire bottle of wine. So whether she’s aiming to keep well hydrated throughout the day or she’s using it to keep her pinot gris chilled for an afternoon at the pool, rest assured, Mom will put this beauty to good use.
Le Creuset Provence Round Dutch Oven (5 1/2-quart)
If Mom still doesn’t own a Dutch oven, this might be the year to coordinate with your siblings and go in together on an iconic Le Creuset. One of these durable, enameled cast-iron Dutch ovens is, without a doubt, an incredibly special gift for anyone who enjoys their time in the kitchen—and dressed in Provence, Le Creuset’s latest color release, this timeless piece of cookware will be as attractive left sitting on your stovetop as it is functional. If you think Mom will love this shade of lavender, but a Dutch oven isn’t the right gift, be sure to check out other pieces available in the color line.
