It used to be terribly gauche to give mom cookware for Mother's Day. But now that she belongs to a dinner party club and watches Heston Blumenthal's In Search of Perfection religiously, go nuts!

We love this idea from Williams Sonoma: grab a bright-coloured oven mitt, fill it with silicon spatulas, herb shears, tongs and pancake flippers along a colour theme (we chose celery green and lemon yellow), tie with a cheerful ribbon and you're done.

Just make sure it's you who's cooking brunch.

Williams Sonoma, 2903 Granville St., Vancouver, 778-330-2581,
