Hip Mamas on the Clock: Modify Watches

Sometimes, digging that smart phone out of the purse to check the time is too much of a hassle. If only Mom had a sweet timekeeper on her wrist. Strap a Modify watch on it! This San Francisco watch company puts the fun in functional. Browse their designs—they often collaborate with local artists—or customize your own. How about a photo of the whole family smiling up from that watch face? All watches are assembled in San Francisco, so you can feel good about supporting local manufacturing, too. Styles include sport, gunmetal and stainless steel. Strap choices are silicone, nylon and leather. $50–$155
