You’re running out of time, and flowers are a cliché. Don’t fret — the Avenue team has you covered.

For art lovers

Is your mother an art collector or enthusiast? Sign her up for a class through Sotheby’s Institute of Art. The online course offerings cover a range of subjects, including buying art, writing about it, curating a gallery, and of course its history. There is also a variety of fascinating lectures.

For foodies

Food52 has a subscription service for Especially Puglia olive oil, and lets you adopt an olive tree while you’re at it.

.

For fans of wine

Keep your mother stocked up on rosé through Summer Water Societé. The four-month wine program (it runs May through August) delivers different versions of Winc’s Summer Water wine.

.

For readers

The New York Review of Books’ Book Club mails out a new title, as selected by its editors, monthly. And despite its name, there is no physical “club” that meets to discuss the books — perfect for social distancing!

There’s a reason you’ve been hearing a lot about Masterclass lately: the classes cover a wide variety of subjects, and its A-list instructors are genuinely interesting. Depending on how well you know your mother’s taste, you can either sign her up for a single class or a year-long membership.
