For Your Mom

4. Magisso Cake Server

This sleek-looking, stainless-steel server cuts a generous slice of cake, lifts it with a slight pinch of the handle, and drops it cleanly on your plate. In other words, it's that pitch-perfect blend of form and function that moms eat up.

5. Burgon & Ball gardening tools
