Finding the right gift for mom on Mother’s Day can be challenging, but for those whose mother considers herself a culinarian, Nordstrom has a host of eye-catching kitchenware that could serve as the perfect present.

The upscale department store chain shared with Kitchenware Today several items that can spruce up the kitchen while also providing a great deal of functionality when preparing a meal. Check out the highlights below and visit for more ideas.

The familiar aesthetics of SMEG’s appliances shine through on this eye-catching kettle that mom will want to keep out on the countertop. Offered in black or pink, the kettle can be used to heat water for tea, oatmeal and other beverages. Featuring a 360° swivel base and easy-to-read water level indicators, the kettle shuts off automatically when water reaches a boiling point, when the jug is lifted from the base or when it’s empty. A soft-opening lid prevents the sudden release of steam. Retail price is $159.95.
