It’s tough work finding the best gifts for mom, because you can’t fit moms in a box. They’re perennial overachievers, which can make it tough to nail down the one gift that will suit her varied, yet highly specific needs. But most moms can be defined by one thing: their impeccable taste. So when shopping for the moms in your life, always think of the five “C”s: cashmere, candles, ceramics, cheese, and of course, Chanel. Assuming you aren’t at a point in your life where you’re buying luxury gifts, this handcrafted, artisanal gift guide focuses on those other categories, as well as some more practical, perhaps even useful gifts for mom—like new linens, stash bags for the mom who’s always nibbling, cozy puffers, and even self-warming coffee mugs that help ensure that her beverage is always the perfect temp. Go forth and claim your position as her most favorite child with one (or many) of these, the best gifts for mom.
