Gift Guide: Mother’s Day 2012

While you may still be recuperating from Cinco de Mayo and the Kentucky Derby, there’s actually another holiday to observe: Mother’s Day. To make Mom’s Sunday, here are some spirited present ideas. Cheers!

Taylor Fladgate Late Bottled Vintage Porto, 2007 ($25):

If your mother is like ours, she enjoys sipping something delicious after dinner. Taylor Fladgate’s rich and complex Late Bottled Vintage Porto is a great choice, since it pairs well with desserts and also with cheeses.

Lillet Rose ($20):

Just in time for the festivities comes the brand-new Lillet Rose, made from a blend of Bordeaux grapes, fruit liqueurs and, in keeping with tradition, a measure of Peruvian quinine. Try it on the rocks or in a Vesper.

Microplane Stainless-Steel Citrus Bar Tool ($20):

Looking for a last-minute gift? If your mom is into bartending, pick up Microplane’s handy and recently introduced garnishing tool, which cuts fruit-peel spirals and grates zest. It even includes a built-in bottle opener.

Prepara Ice Balls ($10):

If you’re fixing drinks for a Sunday brunch, give your tipples a special flair by using Prepara ice-ball molds. The two-inch spheres can freeze a range of mixers, plus herbs, slices of fruit or flowers for a truly dramatic touch.
