Lodge 8.5 x 4.5 Seasoned Cast Iron Loaf Pan


"My favorite recipe my mom has passed down to me is for her signature banana bread. She used to bake me a loaf to take back to school when I was in college, and now I've made it a point to turn my ripe bananas into the breakfast treat for myself. For the mom who loves to bake, you can't go wrong with this cast iron loaf pan that bakes evenly and has handles for easy removal from the oven. In my experience, it's easy to use and care for, and my mom loved receiving this gift that felt personal and useful." Marisa Casciano, Senior Commerce Editor

Also, I love the fun color options and know that this product would last for years and years." —Julia Fields, Assistant Commerce Editor

I ended up buying one for my step mom who is hard to shop for—she also loves it and uses it every morning. I love that it doesn't take up much counter space, which is great when you are trying to cut down on clutter or have a small kitchen." —Jenica Currie, Associate Commerce Editor

"Finding a gift for my mom is notoriously tricky, but I've found a good skincare product always makes her happy. This is one of her favorite moisturizers, but it's pricey and she'll rarely buy it for herself. Her skin is sensitive and especially prone to dryness, but this moisturizer deeply hydrates. She loves the way it feels and the healthy glow it adds to her skin." —Sarah Toscano, Assistant Editor

"I discovered the easiest way to stock your mom up on brand new dinnerware—Leeway Home's Full Way Kit.

"My mom spends a ton of money on fresh flowers, and always has them around the house. Instead of weekly bouquets, we found this company that offers flowers that last over a year. It's not a gimic—they're real flowers that have been treated and preserved, and I can vouch that they look as good on day 365 as they do on day one. There are different flower colors and boxes to choose from, so you can match any design scheme." Madison Yauger, Assistant Editor
