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!
You might be the star of this show, but when your ring bearer makes his way up the aisle, step aside: All eyes will be on him. And this diminutive darling should carry a pillow that is as stylish as the wedding itself. The wedding ring bearer pillow carries a special symbolism, since it is the vessel upon which the couple's wedding bands sit. Today, many artisans have focused on creating gorgeous ring bearer pillows that live up to this important task. If your nuptials will be on a farm, the pillow can take rustic inspiration. For a glamorous affair, there are pillows trimmed in bows, lace and crystals. Garden or beach-inspired weddings can be well-served by pillows that bring a combination of fabrics and trims reminiscent of the sea. Whatever your wedding style, here are the 10 sweet ring bearer pillows from Etsy, David's Bridal, Amazon 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!)
