Customizable coffee mug
Around $15
Is your mom a coffee or tea drinker? Then she probably needs a mug plastered with your good-looking face to remind of her how much you love her. Decorate it collage style or with one large picture. Customizable photo books, calendars, and greeting cards are also available.
Gourmet green-tea set
For the tea aficionado, this loose-tea set contains a 16-ounce teapot and four one-ounce sample tins of citron, hojicha, pekoe, and white-monkey gourmet green teas. The teapot is microwave- and dishwasher-safe. Ginza in DC’s Dupont Circle also has a large selection of teapots and loose teas.
Oster wine opener
$29.99 or $37.99 with wine chiller
Save your mom some preparation time with the cordless and rechargable Oster wine opener, which can remove a bottle’s foil and cork in seconds. For an extra sum, the opener comes with a stainless-steel wine chiller that keeps wine cold for hours.
