Mother’s Day is just around the corner! Whether she’s passionate about cooking, drinking coffee/tea, kitchen gadgets, getting dinner on the table fast, or just enjoying food, we’ve rounded up some gift ideas for a variety of moms, at a variety of price points.
1. For the veggie lover: Oxo Good Grips Spiralizer
This trendy kitchen gadget can create “noodles” out of just about any vegetable with the quick twist of a crank. It has become a staple kitchen device in many homes. If your mom loves creating veggie centric dishes, or if she’s looking to add more veggies to your family’s diet, this might be the perfect gift.
2. For the time-pressed (aka every mom): The Instant Pot
This popular electronic appliance is a 7-in-1 cooker that can save a busy mom tons of time and stress. It’s a pressure cooker, slow cooker, rice cooker, yogurt maker, food warmer, steamer, and sauté pan all in one! Here’s a great review on this appliance if you want to learn a little more before buying.
3. For the expectant mom: The Healthy, Happy Pregnancy Cookbook
This book is perfect for expecting moms, or those planning to have a family soon. There are recipes to help deal with pesky pregnancy symptoms like nausea while making sure you’re getting the nutrients you need for a healthy pregnancy, along with general nutrition information for eating healthfully during pregnancy.
4. For the everyday home chef: Le Creuset Signature Cast-Iron Round Dutch Oven
A high quality dutch oven is a cook’s best friend. This cast iron classic is a splurge, but totally worth it, and will be the last one mom needs. It comes in a variety of colors to match any kitchen decor.
5. For the tea lover: Matcha Powder and Essentials Tool Kit
If your mom is loving matcha lattes from her favorite coffee or tea shop, this gift, including Matchaful’s Organic Jade Grade Matcha powder and their Essentials Tool Kit, will get her set-up to make delicious matcha at home.
6. For the coffee lover: Pour Over Coffee Maker
If she loves a good cup a joe and values superb coffee flavor, she will love one of these. This pour over coffee maker uses an eco-friendly reusable steel filter to help retain coffee’s oils and flavors all while reducing the need to waste a paper filter.
7. For the fancy chef: Mandoline and Protective Hand Mitt
A mandoline is a food slicer that can make any cook feel fancy. A mandoline comes with a variety of blades to slice fruits and veggies into uniform pieces (wide, thin, chunky, and julienne) that cook evenly and look professional. The blades are sharp, so the protective hand mitt is a really handy accessory to have as you are using it (it’s saved our fingers a few times already!)
8. For the meal planner: PrepDish Membership
If mom is the meal planner in your family, then get her a membership to PrepDish. This is a weekly meal planning service that gives you all the tools to shop and prep for your week’s meals ahead of time. You do the shopping and cooking, PrepDish does all the planning.
9. For the organizer: Glass Storage Containers
Help mom make food storage and prep easier with these glass storage containers. Having good storage containers for your leftovers or meal prepped veggies is key. We love these glass containers because you can easily see what’s in them, they don’t leave any off flavors on your food, they last forever, and they can even go in the microwave or oven. We got these as a gift and it’s one of the products we use most in our kitchens!
10. For the foodie: Subscription to Cherry Bombe Magazine
This fun magazine celebrates women, food, and style. You can grab a 1 or 2-year subscription. We promise mom won’t be disappointed!
