Mother's Day Gift Guide: What We're Buying Our Moms

PEOPLE staffers reveal what they're gifting their moms this Mother's Day

NESPRESSO PIXIE MACHINE

Carey Purcell, Freelance Editor:
My mother taught me that cooking at home always saves money, and the same goes for coffee. So an espresso machine shows her I know how to cut back on spending but definitely not on caffeine. espresso's Pixie machine ($229), which is so compact it will barely take up any counter space, can brew short and long servings that are perfect for a fancy drink or a simple espresso shot. Made from recycled Nespresso capsules, the Pixie is eco-friendly and it automatically turns off after nine minutes, so it won’t run up the energy bill. Throw in a milk frother so Mom can make a pair of perfect lattes or cappuccinos for herself, and you, to enjoy before brunch.
