Give Mom the Gift of Serving

Give Mom the Gift of Serving

For a day and more

You know the drill by now: Mother’s Day is all about honoring the years of love and care that your mother has bestowed upon you. It goes without saying that just one day of gratitude a year is hardly adequate. A mother’s job is never complete and her love knows no bounds, nor does it actually ever anticipate reward—it is the definition of selfless. And after Mother’s Day has come and gone, she will still exhibit this selflessness and continue to serve you, as well as those around her. Therefore, when you offer mom your token of gratitude this year, why not give her the gift of service, as well as the gift of being able to serve those she loves with style and class? We’ve handpicked a collection of gifts with which you can serve mom this year, and that she’ll be delighted to own after Mother’s Day has passed.

Primula Daisy Borosilicate Glass Teapot with Glass Infuser

Kitchen Stories

If coffee isn’t your Mom’s cup of tea, then she’s sure to love this beautiful glass teapot, designed for bagged, loose, and flowering teas. As it’s made from glass, it doesn’t retain tea flavor like a clay pot would, which makes it an ideal pot for those who wish to sample a variety of teas.

Cake Stand

Kitchen Stories

It’d be a shame for you to serve your mother artisanal coffee and/or tea without anything to nosh on. Simply scroll through our archives for a plethora of cake and/or pastry recipes. We’ve got you covered there. But you won’t be serving these things on thin air, right? You’ll need a vessel. A simple, understated cake stand, like this porcelain one from BIA Cordon Bleu, makes a perfect gift. It also conveniently doubles as a pastry stand.

Vase

Kitchen Stories

The perfect way to tie together your Mother’s Day spread would be with freshly cut flowers in a brand new vase—or vases. This set of 3 vases will perfectly match both the cake stand and cheeseboard and the varying heights create a visually appealing contrast.
