The Mother’s Day Gift Guide

Tools & toys

There’s a lot of days dedicated to people, places and things. In fact, we celebrated National Nacho Day pretty hard this past year.

However, when it comes to annual holidays, no one earns their 24 hours of recognition quite like Mothers. It’s a wonderful time to say thank you to a person who’s always been your champion … even when you maybe didn’t deserve one?

This year, we rounded up a few gift ideas for you. You’ll want to read all the way through, because while everything on this list is excellent, we like to think we saved the best for last.

The Torun Bangle from Georg Jensen

One of the most famous pieces to ever be created for Georg Jensen and one of their top sellers, the Tourn Bangle Watch was created in 1962 by Swedish artist Vivianna Torun Bulow-Hube, who went by simply Torun. “We have been celebrating her for 50 years at Georg Jensen, offers Product and Training Manager, Tine Friis Josephsen. “For me, the bangle is a strong expression. When we introduced it in 1968, we only had a pure silver version. Now we do it with other precious metals, including yellow gold, rose gold, and even variations with diamonds. I find that in a lot of her pieces, there is a symbolic meaning. She was a passionate person who always stayed true to herself.”

Sounds a lot like our moms.

A Selection of Artisan Jams from Three Little Figs

Reading the flavors on the Three Little Figs website makes us salivate. Go to and try it. There’s Plum Fig & Cherry Mostarda and a Strawberry Balsamic Pepper jam. In a previous box, we gave members the Sparkling Nectarine and the Citrus & Smoked Salt. Owner Liz Cowan makes them all herself, and her Tomato Tapas jam is perfect paired with salty, savory Spanish Jamón. We also really dig the Watermelon Sriracha Chili that takes us both to the deep South and also to Southeast Asia in a bite. Best part? You don’t have to decide on one for mom. The gift packs retail for around $35 and have gorgeous packaging.

The Tea Over Ice Set from Tea Forte

Nothing soothes like a glass of tea. With summer upon us, it’s a fantastic time to give the gift of delicious relaxation to your mom with this ultra-cool Tea Over Ice Set. It makes the perfect carafe of ice tea for a Sunday lunch and can even let you create cool infusions, from mint to berries. Mom will also love the streamlined, beautiful look of it on her dining table.

A Robb Vices Subscription

This year, the easiest, coolest thing to get her is, obviously, a subscription. Each and every month, we will send a giant reminder of just how grateful you are for all she’s done. From custom sunglasses crafted in Italy to aforementioned artisan jams, from the latest wireless headphones to bottles of custom-label Champagne, a Robb Vices box is a world of luxury right to her doorstep.
