FIG & OLIVE’s Mother’s Day Gifts for the Foodie Mother or Music Lover



For any upcoming Mother’s Day (Sunday, May 11, 2014) gifts you may be looking for, we’d love for you to consider FIG & OLIVE Newport Beach’s new Music Collection ($18.98) and Scented Soy Candle ($35, candle only; $48.90, CD + candle) in addition to the restaurant’s house-label olive oils and vinegars ($12-32).

To set the mood while cooking or entertaining, FIG & OLIVE’s The Music Collection offers an eclectic and well-balanced blend of tracks inspired by the elegant lifestyle of St. Tropez and Cannes mixed by resident celebrity DJ Julien Nolan. Tracks from the likes of Andhim, Isaac Delusion, Imogen Heap, and more transport listeners to the Provencal regions of the South of France, Italy, and Spain. The FIG & OLIVE Music Collection is available for purchase ($18.98) at all FIG & OLIVE locations in New York, Los Angeles, and Newport Beach, CA, as well as online and on iTunes ($9.99).

Indulge the senses further with FIG & OLIVE’s new scented Sweet Mandarin Soy Candle, which fills a room with orange, lemon, herbal, warm moss, amber, and musk notes.

Located adjacent to the entrance of FIG & OLIVE Newport Beach, a unique retail space features 30 different varietals of olive oil (including many limited edition estate oils, finishing oils, and infused oils) that are all available for purchase. Specially sourced for Fig & Olive from Italy, Spain, France, Chile, Australia, and California, these exclusive olive oils range in flavor from a delicate and fruity unfiltered extra virgin olive oil from Chateau Leoube in Provence to a buttery Arbequina from Melgarejo in Andalucía, Spain, and a peppery Tuscan olive oil from Villa Lucia. Other products sold include an assortment of infused olive oils, aged vinegars, and specialty olives & spreads.
