Our Mother's Day Gift Guide
Making houses beautiful takes a talented team and the perfect tools, but making it a home requires only one: your Mom. Mother’s Day is just around the corner and if you’re anything like us, it may have slipped your mind until this moment. We know it’s hard to find the time to get the perfect gift, so here’s a list of our favorites. The best news? They’re all in stock locally at Shop Mayker, where we keep the process easy -- from the gift itself, to the perfect ribbon to go with it.
FOR THE MOM WHO LOVES TO COOK
ILA Salts and Olive Oil
Not all olive oil is made equal, and this one has us dipping breads with no shame. ILA’s Extra Virgin Olive Oil is remarkably rich and smooth, adding depth to dinner or stealing the show as a garnish. The olives come from a 100-year-old mill in Andalusia, where they are picked and pressed in a single day for quality and freshness. 16 oz, $42
Sonoma Sea Salt is just as much for the thoughtful chef as it is for the beach vacationer. It’s harvested through solar evaporation from the Pacific Ocean, with a flavor that’s crisp, pure, and free of additives. We’d like to think that a pinch of Sonoma Sea Salt recalls sunny days and toes in the sand. 35 oz, $35
Sel de Guerande is a fine garnishing salt with a history mothers can appreciate. It’s delicate composition requires the utmost care, so harvesting has historically been entrusted only to women. It has a light and earthy profile, and is known as “the greatest salt in all the world.” 1.5 oz, $15
FOR THE MOM WHO LOVES TO HOST
Marble Pinch Pot Serving Tray
What better way to spice up family dinners than with this beautiful and functional serving piece? Three marble pinch pots hold fresh spices or condiments, and sit perfectly in an Acacia wood handled tray. A tiny golden spoon is included as a finishing touch. It’s the perfect accompaniment to an elevated charcuterie board, and helps satisfy every spice preference on taco night. When the house is empty, Mom can store the tray and keep the pinch pots near the stove for adding flavor on a whim. $51
FOR THE MOM WHO LOVES TO GARDEN
Gunmetal Terra Cotta Jug
Terra Cotta is timeless, and the gunmetal finish gives this piece a modern flair. The avid gardener can use it indoors or out; it will weather the rain on the patio, or hold her favorite stems and branches on the kitchen counter. For those with especially green thumbs, we’d love to see a water-rooted vine or two creeping from the mouth. It can be paired with a matching pedestal for an artistic touch. $39
FOR THE WORKING MOM
Whether working 9-5 in an office or at home, Moms have a lot to manage. In the day-to-day stress, it’s the little things that make it lighter. Our Appntd notebooks, to do pads, and weekly task adhesives make work a bit more pleasurable with refined gold details and streamlined design.
To Do Pad $10
Brass Page Markers $6
Gold Stainless Clip $5
