Floret Flower Cut Flower Garden and Beautiful by Mark D. Sikes are two stunning coffee table books. These make great gifts because they are universally loved and make great pieces of decor, but people generally won’t buy them for themselves. Both books have endless floral arranging, gardening and decor inspiration for the hostess.

Jo Malone Wood Sage & Sea Salt is such a fresh, pretty scent for spring and summer. It’s a unique mineral scent with a little woodiness that anyone will love. Plus, it comes in the most gorgeous packaging that makes a really special gift.

This pair of pave huggie hoop earrings is a perfect every day earring: delicate and effortless with the right amount of sparkle. These are great quality and under $50!

I’ve been seeing this woven bamboo tote all over the place this spring and I’m obsessed. This would be such a nice gift for a mom who loves to entertain, travel, or has lots of parties or weddings to attend. Pair it with a dress for a summer wedding or use it as a little beach bag. This one has over 700 5-star reviews on Amazon and comes in two sizes.

These glass crystal mugs are such a gorgeous, modern take on a kitchen staple. I’m not a coffee drinker, but I can see why any coffee-addicted mom would love them. I think someone who loves to entertain would enjoy offering these to her guests – so special and unique. Also, very instagram-able, (if you’re into that.) A set of six is just $22.

This Colleen Rothschild candle bundle has been on my radar for a while. Her candles are incredible – this one has a spa-like quality to it with lavender, eucalyptus, and wood. The set also comes with a heavy, stainless steel wick trimmer and candle snuffer. This gift would be great for a mom who already has it all.

I think the Amazon description of Southern Lady Code tells us all we need to know: “The bestselling author of American Housewife (“Dark, deadpan and truly inventive.” –The New York Times Book Review) is back with a fiercely funny collection of essays on marriage and manners, thank-you notes, ghosts, gunshots, gynecology, and the Calgon-scented, onion-dipped, monogrammed art of living as a Southern Lady.” I imagine this is what Nora Ephron would have written, if she baked casseroles and wore hot rollers. Get it for your mom (if she’s a cool mom) or your grandma (because grandmas are always cool).

A cast iron skillet is a must-have for any cook. While this walks the thin line of ‘I’m getting you this because you’ll love it and I love you’ and ‘I’m getting you this so you’ll make me cornbread,’ it’s still definitely gift-worthy. This one comes pre-seasoned and has a silicone handle holder. Comes in lots of sizes – the 10.25″ is a good pick and is only $23.

This carved wood serving tray is so gorgeous and perfect for serving charcuterie. The slight lip keeps crackers and other goodies from falling off when transferring from the kitchen to where ever it’s being served. The large is a perfect size for a cheese platter and under $25 with Prime.
