Bread Cutting Board from Nannie Inez - Form and function combine to create the perfect tool. I can see combining this with some fresh bread from Easy Tiger Bakeshop and jam from Confituras (see below).
Fig Pulp Candle from Nannie Inez - I have purchased this candle from Oliver and Co. in the Silver Fir scent and it burns up to 50-60 hours. The fragrance is so deep, you need only remove the lid to provide a whiff of its lovely aroma. Lighting it makes the aroma more intense. Through Sunday only, the Oliver and Co. candles at Nannie Inez are 30% off!
Confituras Gift Set - Jam sets from this master artisan are the best. Available at many local retailers and online. Also consider a canning class.
Delysia Truffle Set - There is a special truffle collection for Mother's Day, but there are lots of options to choose from. Local retailers and online.
Ceramic French Press from Spartan - Make her morning coffee even more special.
Midnight Collective Hibiscus and Blood Orange Soaking Salts from Spartan - A delicious way to take a bath.
