Kitchen and Dining Items
For moms who love baking, check out this six-piece set of copper pudding molds – copper's heat conductivity results in fast, uniform baking with perfectly formed, golden-browned pastries, breads and more. See also this marble box perfect for holding those delicious cookies your mom makes (just slightly above $100, but hey, it’s Carrara marble, the one Michelangelo used ;-)).
Does your mom keep a mug of coffee constantly at her side? Then have a look at this ceramic mug (made by the ceramic masters of Deruta) with lid. If she’s cappuccino addicted, then this ceramic cappuccino cup, handmade in Italy, is also a great option.
Delivered in an elegant cardboard box, this beautiful set of two placemats with napkins is hand embroidered in Tuscany following ancient traditional techniques, so that every piece is authentic and unique.
If you’re not on a tight budget, then you may also want to check out this beautiful cotton table runner with flower design, complete with two cotton napkins.
Is your mother always looking for a great cookbook? Then she should have this collection of 65 delicious recipes for Neapolitan pizzas from the masters of the Association Verace Pizza Napoletana, those who safeguard the tradition and craftsmanship of authentic Neapolitan pizza.
Food & Wine

If budget isn’t an issue on this Mother’s Day and your mom is a wine buff, then consider giving her a membership into the Wine Club, whose limited production labels are selected by Enoteca Pitti Gola e Cantina in Florence.
