Your mom is a classy lady, which makes her downright delightful. It also makes her incredibly hard to shop for, right? Honor her this Mother's Day with a gift that's as classy and fun as she is — without breaking the bank! These gift ideas are all $50 or less.

  1. Welcome Mat, $40 at ShopJosieB: This is how the saying goes, right?
  2. Coffee Pour Over, $45 at Lail Design: Help mom kick her Starbucks habit with this gorgeous pour-over device, which is handcrafted in Upstate New York.
  3. Olive Oil, $33 for 12.7 ounces at Wonder Valley: We believe every home cook needs two types of olive oil: an everyday one and a special one for dipping and finishing. For the latter, this is one of our favorite options.
  4. Kobenstyle Teal Mini Casserette, $50 at Lenox: Chances are, this new 19-ounce casserette will remind your mom of her mom's classic Kobenstyle cookware.
  5. Aloe Vera & Olmsted Planter, $46 at The Sill: When it comes to plants in the kitchen, it doesn't get more perfect than Aloe Vera. (Just snip a leaf and use the aloe inside to treat minor burns!) Be sure to order by May 7 to ensure delivery by Mother's Day.
  6. Floral Board and Napkin Set, $48 at American Heirloom: This new set features two cotton dinner napkins and a floral engraved round maple cutting board. Choose from gray, purple, or raspberry napkins.
  7. Dash Mini Ice Cream Maker, $30 at West Elm: Ice cream for one, coming right up! This sweet little gadget allows mom to make ice cream for herself — just the way she likes it.
  8. Floral Twill Garden Gloves, $38 at Terrain: Help your mom protect her green thumb and tend to her vegetable garden safely.
  9. Ridge Kitchen Pitcher, $40 at Areaware: Even regular ol' tap water will look extra fancy in this hand-blown, 24-ounce pitcher.
  10. Berghoff Leo Herb Cutter, $36 at Bed Bath & Beyond: Instead of flowers, give your mom a bundle of fresh herbs and this oh-so-cute herb cutter.
  11. Seed-Bearing Bundle, $27 for 12 at Amborella Organics: These are no ordinary lollipops. First of all, the flavors are way more unique than you'd expect (think: Lavender & Lemongrass, Sage & Marshmallow, Rosemary & Mint, etc!). And the sticks are actually biodegradable and filled with seeds. So once the sucker is finished, your mom can plant the stick and the gift will just keep on giving.
  12. Speckled Stoneware Spoon Rest, $28 at Schoolhouse Electric: We're big fans of using a spoon rest in the kitchen and we just love the speckled look of this one. Such a little luxury that your mom would probably never think to buy for herself!
  13. River Cafe London, $40: This cookbook is as gorgeous as it is useful. Ruth Rogers and her team share memories of the restaurant's storied history and give us 120 recipes — some old, classic ones and some that are on the restaurant's menu today (spaghetti with lemon! Risotto nero with Swiss chard!).
  14. Tic Tac Trivet, $40 at MoMA Design Store: Perfect for moms with little ones at home, this set can be used to play Tic Tac Toe while dinner's in the oven. Then, when it's time to pull it out, these pieces double as trivets that can be arranged however works best.
  15. Storage Canisters, from $26 at Le Creuset: Your mom won't be able to container herself when she opens one of these stoneware canisters. Bonus: Le Creuset is offering free shipping for Kitchn readers for the rest of 2018! Just use the code "KITCHN" at checkout and shipping is on them through end of the year.
