Mother’s Day Gifts for the World’s Best Cook (Your Mom)

Ask most moms and they’ll tell you that the thing they want most, in one shape or another, is their children’s time. Maybe it’s a simple phone call, an afternoon strolling in a museum, or even helping her figure out how to send an email. For many moms, however, the scenario involves food (and a lot of it!). Whether your mom loves to spoil you by baking you your favorite treats or whether she relishes time spent cooking together, we’ve rounded up some of the best gifts to leave momma (and you…) with a stomach that’s as full as her heart.

Eurita Porcelain Tagine ($134.99)

Upgrade Mom’s Crock-Pot with this Moroccan tagine, ideal for making fragrant stews. While traditionally a tagine is used to make a stew that melds soft chunks of meat, vegetables, spices, and lightly sweetened fruit, Mom can get creative here to make a dish that the whole family will love.

FINEX Cast Iron Skillet ($270)

This forever item is something Mom is sure to pass back down to you with love one day. It’s naturally non-stick and evenly heats up, making it perfect for anything from oil-free scrambled eggs to mouth-watering steaks.

Vejibag Vegetable Storage Long Cotton Bags, Set of 3, ($60)

These bags are a trifecta: long-lasting, stylish, and eco-friendly. They’ll also make up for their upfront cost in the long run. Did you know that plastic bags suffocate produce and concentrate harmful gasses that promote rot? Instead, use these organic cotton bags to store and preserve all your fresh vegetables for up to two weeks!

Repast Supply Co Ravioli Rolling Pin 17″ ($99)

You don’t need to be an Italian mama to appreciate this beautifully crafted, handmade in California rolling pin. It’s specially designed with a much larger diameter than standard ravioli pins so that your homemade ravioli will actually stay sealed while boiling. We all know that when it comes to ravioli… bigger is always better!

Mepra Ideas For Living Stainless Steel Pressure Cooker ($270)

Sometimes Mom just wants to set it and forget it and for those times, nothing beats this Italian-made pressure cooker. It allow you to cook everything quicker and get perfect flavors and textures without cleaning a bunch of stuff. Plus, it leaves tons of extra time to do things like teach Mom how to answer those aforementioned emails.

Aplat Wide Canvas Casserole Tote ($50)

If your mom likes nothing more than cooking for friends and family, then this is the item for her. The eco-friendly tote is specifically designed so she can transport baked goods, side dishes, or a casserole with ease. The tote also happens to be a fantastic conversation starter.

Mono Handcrafted Chef’s Knife (6″), ($250)

Good cooking almost always comes down to knife skills and that’s though to master with run-of-the-mill cutlery. Give Mom the crème de la crème with this handmade chef’s knife that’s so swank, it comes with its own leather pouch and conditioning oil.

Rosti Mepal Cirqula Deep Stacking Bowls, Set of 4, ($69.99)

Not only will mom save time using these bowls—they’re nice enough to use as serving dishes—but they can be used as storage since they keep food fresh for longer. They’re also stackable and can be used in the freezer, fridge, or microwave. Our guess, however, is that mom will mostly be using these to send you home with leftovers.
