20+ Mother's Day Gifts For Food-Loving Moms
Make sure mom's kitchen is stocked this Mother's Day!
Mother's Day is just around the corner, so now's the ideal time to start shopping for the perfect present. And, if your mom loves food, this gift guide is for you. Whether she's an aspiring chef, has a serious sweet tooth or loves to entertain, give your mom something she'll really want this year.
Give your mom something sweet this year in the form of Baked by Melissa's Mother's Day collection that's packed with bite-sized goodies. We love this 25-pack because she'll get to try six of their most-iconic flavors: Cake Batter Crumble, Sugar Cookie Dough, Cotton Candy, Electric Tie-Dye, Midnight Munchies and S'mores. This box is also available in gluten-free, nut-free and vegan options, so there's something for every mom.
Gift your mom a spa-inspired experience without breaking the bank. This chic new offering from Sugarfina includes three flavors of their signature gummy bears: Clementine, Melon Cucumber and Strawberry Hibiscus. Best of all, this sweet treat comes packaged in a ready-to-gift lavender box. Pre-order now to ensure plenty of time for a Mother's Day arrival.
If your mom enjoys a morning (or afternoon) cup of tea, gift her this tea set from Savannah Bee, a company that specializes in gourmet honey. This set includes a tin of cacao shell loose leaf tea, a linen tea towel, a jar of raw acacia honey and a tea infuser.
If your mom loves coffee, give her a caffeinated upgrade with an espresso machine. We love this one because you can brew up to five different cup sizes, and the included Aeroccino3 frother makes it easy to create cappuccinos, lattes, macchiatos and so much more.
We love Drew Barrymore's collection of kitchen electrics and think this stunning air fryer would make a great Mother's Day gift. It's currently in stock online at Walmart in all four colors (though we're partial to the Sage green option) and retails for just $89. Whether she's new to air frying or you just want to upgrade her old model, this gift is perfect for any mom who loves to cook.
Bring your mom's favorite culinary scents into any room with these hand-poured candles, available in four food-forward blends. Choose from Green market, Rosemary Baguette, Siracuse Lemon or Tomato Vine, made from beeswax and hand-poured in the USA.
Upgrade mom's apron game with a new style from Hedley & Bennett — this smock-inspired design was made for chefs of all levels with strategically placed pockets, towel loops and reinforced stitching. We love the Chile Salt colorway, but The Smock is also available in Saffron Salt, Blue Salt, Gray Salt and Black Salt.
When we tested knife block sets, this was our kitchen's top low-maintenance pick. Since each blade is stored in a self-sharpening slot, you (and your mom) don't have to worry about regularly honing your knives. Plus, this 15-piece set has everything you need, including a chef's knife, Santoku knife, prep knife, paring knife, serrated utility knife, kitchen shears and eight steak knives.
You can never have too many mixing bowls, and we love this less-than-$100 set. You get an assorted selection of a batter bowl, mixing bowl and pudding basin (this one's oven-safe!). Made in Portugal, each one is embossed with folk-tale-inspired forest scenes what are sure to bring a touch of whimsy to any kitchen. Plus, each piece is microwave-, freezer- and dishwasher-safe for easy care.
Celebrate Mother's Day by supporting a woman-owned brand like Pineapple Collaborative. Plus, the mustard-colored tin is sure to bring a smile to any mom's face. This olive oil is made with organic olives — enjoy it in whisked into salad dressings, poured over crusty bread or drizzled over caprese salad.
Give mom a chic way to compost this Mother's Day with this understated compost bin. Made from bamboo fibers, this Bamboozle bin is sleek enough to leave out on your countertop. And, after you empty it, you can throw it in the dishwasher for easy cleanup.
Moms are great at multitasking, so give them a pan that works as hard as they do. We love the Always Pan because it's so versatile — it works as a frying pan, saute pan, steamer, skillet, saucier, saucepan, non-stick pan, spatula and spoon rest. Plus, it's currently in stock in six colors: Spice, Blue Salt, Sage, Heat, Steam and Char.
If your mom loves to garden, give a gift that will let her get her hands (a little) dirty. Complete with thyme, marjoram and basil, this seed pack is designed to grow fresh greens all year long. Keep it close by in your kitchen, so you can harvest fresh herbs while you cook.
If you're looking for an less-than-$10 Mother's Day gift, you really can't go wrong with a coffee mug. We love this mug's sweet sentiment and splash of blue on the interior. Crafted from heavy-duty stoneware, this 16-ounce coffee cup is dishwasher- and microwave-safe, too.
This year, give mom a gift that keeps on giving: a fruit tree. This one, sourced from Florida, grows calamondins — a citrus fruit that has the tanginess of a kumquat and easy-peel of a mandarin. Whether she leaves it in a corner of her kitchen or brings it outside for the summer months, she'll have fresh fruit within reach.
Commemorate a cherished family recipe with a custom recipe platter — your mom can display it on her countertop, or use it to serve up the finished dish. Since the design is taken directly from the recipe card you send, it will perfectly capture the handwriting and notes of your loved one.
Flaky finishing salt is a must-have for any ambitious home cook, whether you're seasoning scrambled eggs or topping off chocolate chip cookies. Saltverk's flaky salt is made from Icelandic sea salt produced with geothermal energy. For something more flavorful, Saltverk makes salt infused with licorice, seaweed, birch and thyme.
Handmade in North Carolina, this nesting bowl set by Haand makes a beautiful gift any time of year ... but especially for Mother's Day. Complete with a ramekin, dessert bowl, breakfast bowl, sharing bowl and fruit bowl, these steep-sided bowls are designed to nest beautifully. They're all microwave- and dishwasher-safe, too.
If you want to splurge on something extra-special for your pizza-loving mom this year, snag this Ooni pizza oven. This portable, gas-powered outdoor oven bakes perfect pizzas in one minute — and it's also great for roasting fish, veggies, meat, and more. One shopper writes, "Amazing quality and price. One of my best cooking investments!"
