Amid the tumult of wedding preparations, there is someone who always keeps a cool head: Mom. Whether she's your mom or your future mother-in-law, she's been there since the beginning for you guys, offering her love and support. So, now's the time to gift her with a treasure she'll always cherish. Traditionally given at the rehearsal dinner or the morning of the wedding, gifts for the mother of the bride or mother of the groom should be substantial, but they don't have to be exorbitant. We've rounded up a list of gifts that cost $50 or less that are unique and memorable: Some are sentimental, others are practical and a couple are glamorous; choose which one best reflects your special lady's personality. We shopped at Uncommon Goods, Williams-Sonoma, Nordstrom and more for these thoughtful keepsakes. No doubt, you'll find something she'll love from this creative assortment!
The wedding table runner has traditionally been a must-have décor item for dressing up a table, whether it's used to cover the midsection of a bare table or added atop a tablecloth to create a rich tableau. In earlier centuries, layering such items was reserved for the wealthy as a sumptuous way to display one's taste. (Downton Abbey, anyone?) As a new bride, you'll enjoy using runners to decorate your table, along with your new serveware, china and glassware. For a wedding, they give an additional pop to the overall wedding design. Table runners may reflect the bride's color scheme to create a coordinated color palette, or in a neutral color, wedding table runners can provide the perfect backdrop for flowers and table settings.
Table runners can help lend a summery vibe to a wedding, as well. A burlap runner is perfect for a rustic wedding, while a floral print runner is divine for a garden wedding, and a shiny table runner ups the ante for a black-tie affair. Whatever your style, we've collected the best table runners from stores such as Etsy, Nordstrom, Macy's and more.
The tea kettle, that humble household necessity, has historically conveyed the notion of comfort. Steeping tea to be served with cookies (or "biscuits", per the English) is a time-honored symbol of hospitality. Then in 1980s America, tea kettles became status objects: Italian architect Aldo Rossi designed a sleek number for Alessi and architect Michael Graves designed his famous kettle topped by a red, chirping bird. It was the whistle heard around the world.
Today, tea kettles are must-haves on any wedding registry. Coveted styles include the retro SMEG design and the super cute kettles from Kate Spade. Even if you don't drink tea, a kettle is a must-have for boiling the water used in a French press for coffee or for hot chocolate. No hostess is prepared without one, particularly while hosting a brunch, a book club or holiday parties. We've rounded up the best tea kettles for your wedding registry from Anthropologie, Neiman Marcus, Williams-Sonoma and more. (And don't forget the Fortnum & Mason Wedding Bouquet Blend, a tea developed to commemorate the marriage of Prince Henry ("Harry") of Wales and Meghan Markle!)
