WHAT'S TICKING: Mom's Record Collection

WHAT'S TICKING: Mom's Record Collection

The clock's ticking and we're in the home stretch (or scramble) to get mom something she'll actually be into for mother's day. We were wracking our brains, a merry-go-round of lame gestures like flowers, candy, and potholders, when we remembered: Oh right, Nixon watches are pretty damn great for mom, too. Then we took a cue from our new favorite meme, My Husband's Stupid Record Collection, and remembered that those LPs on a shelf, well they're a little bit like reading someone's palm—at least aesthetically speaking. So, which mom are you shopping for? We've got a little something for all of them, whether Studio 54 still feels like it was yesterday or she's recently transferred her penchant for over-mothering to her plants. Take a look!

Disco Mom
Chic - C'est Chic
The Small Kensington
Boldly feminine in a distinctly blingy way, the Small Kensington is just the thing for Disco Mom. Plus, it'll remind her of all the mirrored surfaces of her youth.

Hippie Mom
Richie Havens - Mixed Bag
Nixon for Kate Spade Saturday Time Teller P
Like a hazy sunrise over the Woodstock tents, our ombré Kate Spade Saturday Time Teller P is the right fit for your Hippie Mom. Now that, 40 years later, she finally wants to be on time for things.

Punk Rock Mom
Stiff Little Fingers - Inflammable Material
The Time Teller Acetate
Those lucky enough to have a punk rock mom know one thing: She's not messing around. A camo Time Teller Acetate is perfect for a grownup mom-badass.

New Age Mom
Baroque Bouquet - Plant Music
The Kensington Leather
New Age Mom loves nothing more than soft dappled sunlight and natural materials, so a denim Kensington Leather is the only logical choice. Not that logic has entered this household in decades.

Synth-y Mom
Blondie - Parallel Lines
Nixon for Kate Spade Saturday Time Teller P
For better or worse, Synth-y Mom lost those long, red acrylic nails years ago, but her deep love of swelling keyboards of icy emotion never went away. A high contrast Time Teller P from Kate Spade Saturday reminds her of New Wave glory days.

Sock Hop Mom
Dion & the Belmonts - Teenager In Love
The Mellor
Sock Hop Mom knows a thing or two about classics with immediately pleasing hooks, which is why The Mellor in untreated vachetta leather is so right for her. She also knows a lot about the back seats of Stingrays, but seriously, please stop talking about that mom. Please.

Still unsure? Why don't you have a listen to our playlist of the above artists and see which one brings back road trip memories from the back seat of the station wagon.
