54 Thrones

Buttery smooth skin? Who wouldn’t want that!? 54 Thrones has entered the big leagues with Sephora for its rich ingredients derived from Africa.

Its tea subscriptions and bundle sets can also help a mother host the most fabulous tea parties as well. Sipping good tea is Jayide Che’s mantra, and mom is sure to find a flavor that suits her fancy.

Sorel Liquor

Speaking of sips, Sorel is the perfect purchase if your mother is inclined toward cocktail-making. This artisanal liquor blends Moroccan hibiscus, Nigerian ginger, and other flavors from around the world to craft this special bottle. It seeks to reclaim the resources exploited in the spice trade to put an intoxicating spin on the classic Caribbean beverage.
