Food editor Kristen Eppich shares 10 Mother’s Day gift ideas for moms who love spending time in the kitchen.
How many of your memories with Mom are in the kitchen? From baking cookies together to enjoying family meals, food is such an integral part of family. What better way to show your love for Mom than with a food-focused gift? I’ve rounded up 10 great ideas that any foodie mom would appreciate (I know I would!).
With spring in the air and fresh, local produce about to become readily available, try holistic nutritionist and My New Roots blogger Sarah Britton’s new vegetable-based cookbook, Naturally Nourished. It has over 100 delicious and beautiful recipes for everyday cooking.
If your mom loves to cook, take her to a cooking class. Do your research and fine one that’s geared toward what she likes, whether it’s vegetarian cooking, baking or another type of food. My personal choice? A day cooking amongst the vines and gardens at The Good Earth Food And Wine Co. in Niagara, Ontario.
This electric kettle can reach specific targeted temperatures and maintain that heat. Sleek, quick and quiet, it’s perfect for tea lovers and pour-over coffee fanatics.
If Mom’s been getting by with the same old blender for years, she will be truly grateful for this versatile workhorse. Make everything from margaritas to dips, fondues and nut butters.
Enroll mom in a Wine Of The Month club, where for a flat rate she’ll receive two bottles of wine per month selected by renowned Canadian sommeliers, Tony Aspler and David Lawrason. These wines come from all over Canada and are not available at the LCBO. The site is currently offering a 3-month Mother’s Day special.
Give your mom a box of Brandon Olsen chocolates that look like a piece of art. A special offering for Mother’s Day includes a hand-painted gift box featuring a nine-piece box of chocolates, jar of Kitten & The Bear jam, and a tin of Sloane Tea Heavenly Cream.
Send Mom a package of curated foodie gifts to suit what she loves. You can tailor the products by choosing between items for coffee and tea lovers, gardeners, cooks and more. Or, enroll her in a monthly service where she’ll receive a Chef’s Box full of unique small-batch products and ingredients.
Vegetables are taking a center stage on our plates these days and spiralizers are a great way to include them in our everyday meals in innovative ways. I resisted the spiralizer trend at first, but I’m a full-on convert, and love it for salads and vegetable-noodle dishes.
Make weeknight meals easy for Mom a few nights a week with a meal delivery program like Hello Fresh, or one in your community. Hello Fresh offers a box of pre-portioned ingredients delivered to your door. The recipes are quick and easy with step-by-step instructions.
Help Mom protect her electronics while reading her recipes and cooking with this durable, natural bamboo tablet holder.
