Gift Guide #2: Your Mom (or Mother Figure) Who Has a Soft Voice and Life-Long Crush on Niles from Frasier.

A cashmere sweater that’s not just any cashmere sweater — how gorgeous is the stitch design? And these cashmere pants look sooooo nice, too. (Bonus: Get $10 toward your purchase of $95+ with code JO10)

Chocolates that are almost too beautiful to eat, from $25, or chocolate babka pie for delicious holiday mornings, $59.

One of this year’s yummiest cookbooks, like Simple Pasta, Korean American, and Smitten Kitchen Keepers, which Deb Perelman said was “the cookbook I was always meant to write.”

Gingham double oven mitt, $40. We have a double mitt — so much easier for cookie trays and lasagna pans!

A gorgeous personalized necklace to show that you see and love her — with her birth flower or name or birthstone. From $54. (I’m also into this layered set.)

A cool class to take together — maybe a Friday night pottery wheel class or virtual cooking class with cookbook author Julia Turshen. From $40.

Your favorite beauty product of 2022, like this miracle blush and or iconic lip balm (at the top of my wishlist!). $38.

A bright bouquet of flowers, wrapped in burlap. From $59.

Colorblock notebook and pen for bedtime journaling, planning family vacations, and playing M.A.S.H. with the grandkids. $16.

Tickets for both of you to see a buzzy movie or play. Think: Kimberly Akimbo, which the Wall Street Journal called “the best musical of the year so far, by far.”

A bumper sticker to make her laugh, $5.

A donation in her name to the Lilith Fund, Brigid Alliance, or WRRAP — all organizations fighting for reproductive rights and helping women access safe, legal abortion care and emergency contraception.

A card saying how much you love her because that’s all she really wants anyway.
