The Swooniest Mother’s Day Gift Guide
The Swooniest Mother’s Day Gift Guide

There is nothing truer or purer than the love of a parent. Through the highs and lows, all the ages and stages, the happiness and heartbreaks, a strong familial bond emerges that is deeply rooted in affection, loyalty, honor, and wonder. This spiritual tie has the power to connect you to one another, no matter where you are in the world—and it’s truly magical.

This year, we wanted to honor the mother in our lives, whoever that is for you, with love and spoils in a bid to give back what they gave us, in some small way. So we curated the swooniest Mother’s Day gift guide filled with practical pieces that can double as decorative objects and so much more, to show that special person in your life how much you care.

Look for special pieces this Mother's Day that are made by hand from small businesses that give back like August Sage. This hand thrown stoneware mug is made by artisans in their Tonalá, pueblo studio also known as the heart of Mexican ceramic heritage.

Mason Wylde Spice Dish

It's no secret that the EyeSwoon team loves raw, organic material. So you can imagine our hearts skipped a beat when when we discovered this beautiful Aussie brand that makes everything from one of our favorites: Travertine. This one-of-a-kind spice dish is handcrafted in the Byron Bay hinterland.

Material Kitchen The 8

It took the Material Kitchen co-founder, Eunice Byun over a year to perfect this high-performance 8” chef’s knife, and it's safe to say they nailed it. It's just the right size, just the right weight, meticulously sharp and incredibly resilient. Athena loves hers—we know your mom will too. And if you haven't listened to Eunice and Athena's conversation on the More Than One Thing Podcast, go download it now!

Fourth St Terracotta Water Pitcher

While marble tends to reign supreme in the design world, we hold a special place for terracotta. It's one of the most underrated materials but we love its texture and how it ages over time. We especially love seeing it be used in a non-traditional way like this water pitcher. What a beauty for your moms table.

Every kitchen needs a cast iron pot and Staub make some of the best. If your mom loves to cook, then spoil her with this beautiful French oven. It's great for slow-simmering soups, stews and tagines as well as French classics like coq au vin but it also just loves to sit pretty on the stovetop too.

The champagne coupe isn't new but it seems to be having a moment. Our favorite would have to be vintage but this Ferm Living rippled version is just as beautiful. Cheers mom!

There is nothing more beautiful than a handmade object. This half garlic basket, also known as gourds, are woven using natural plant fibre such as Ilala palm and Indaza by women who are widowees from Bulawayo, in the Matebeland district of Zimbabwe. The basket weaving technique is passed down through generations. Your mom can use them as planters, fruit baskets, storing goodies or for decoration.
