Moop Letter Bag
Simple, sturdy, and functional—what more could you ask for in a weekend tote? This chipper red bag is made of corded canvas and features special pockets for keys, notepads, and a laptop.
$118 from
Love & Victory Custom Silhouette Keychain
The deadline may have passed for May 9 delivery, but an IOU of this adorable custom keychain is worth it. Send in old photos of you and your siblings, and Love & Victory will turn them into sterling-silver Victorian-style silhouettes. They’ll even engrave childhood nicknames on the back of the faces. Need an idea for a new mom? Try the custom baby-name ring.
$128 for key ring with one charm, additional charms $50 each;
Savannah Bee Company Honeys
This Georgia store is famous for its locally cultivated artisanal honey. Help Mom add a little Southern flavor to her food with these three specially purposed versions: the grill honey sweetly caramelizes barbecued meats, the tea honey diffuses just as well in lemonade and mojitos, and the cheese honey will ease the bite of especially tangy wedges.
$12 each from
