Mother's Day Gift Guide: Options for the Foodie

table with food for mother's day gifts

Finding the perfect gift in time for Mother's Day can be a bit of a challenge, considering how many options we are bombarded with on a daily basis. To me, saying 'thank you' to mom deserves a well-thought gift that will give her a bit that "me-time" that she deserves so badly. Mothers always put the needs of others first, and I think that Mother's Day is the perfect moment to give her an excuse to treat herself. 

That is why I have created a Mother's Day Gift Guide to honor the foodie that gave you life. Enjoying the finest pleasures of life is an art that should be encouraged, as having a bit of respite in our hectic lives is not only good for the body, but also for the mind. In this guide for every budget, you'll find the perfect gifts for that Mom who enjoys food and has a refined taste. We hope you enjoy our mouth-watering selection!




 Mini Flower Cheese Tower by Murray's Cheese ($75)



If you want to continue a lifelong tradition of DIY gifts for Mom while giving her something (ahem!) presentable, you have to check this amazingly scrumptious cheese tower. Ridiculously decadent, these three wheels of delicious cheese can be decked out with flowers, ribbons, or any extravagant adornments to your heart's content.

A true showstopper, it will set the scene for a memorable Mother's Day Brunch. The set has been carefully curated by the cheese experts at Murray's Cheese, and includes a Murray's Cavemaster Reserve Cornelia (with peanutty, buttery notes, and a very rich texture), a Four Fat Fowl St. Stephen (a toasty and sweet decadent number), and a Murray's Cavemaster Reserve Hudson Flower Mini (which offers a herbal, sheepy counterpoint.) Plus, and just in time for Mother's Day, it includes a set of themed decorations to make a custom cheese tower fit for a (foodie) Queen. Plus, as you have to assemble the tower yourself, you'll get extra points in Mom's eyes. You can't go wrong with that!

 The Daily Chef by Hamptons Salt Company ($44.99)


 Get one of these sets for that foodie Mom that enjoys creating special dishes paying attention to their natural flavors. The Daily Chef includes a selection of the most celebrated products created by Hamptons Salt Company: A giant 14 oz. Cooking Salt, a 4oz. Finishing Salt and a 4oz. Garlic Salt. Ideal to season meats, fish, and vegetables, these salts are unrefined and contain zero additives. Made in the USA with all-natural ingredients.

Organic Balsamic Vinegar of Modena by Giusto Sapore ($9.99) 


A staple piece in every Italian household, this delicious balsamic vinegar is the perfect gift for the connoisseur who wants to experiment with the Mediterranean flavors. Commonly used in Europe to prevent digestive and cholesterol troubles, it is a great addition as a salad dressing or to accompany your homemade pizzas. Giusto Sapore offers a high-quality Vinegar of Modena made using a traditional recipe that starts with all-organic, partially-fermented cooked grape must that is added to wine vinegar and aged in wooden barrels for superior flavor. A must for the most delicate palates.

 Italian Gourmet Pasta by Giusto Sapore ($4.99)


There is an art to the world of pasta. True connoisseurs agree that no two type of pastas taste alike, nor call for the same sauce recipe. This bucatini pasta is an ideal gift for a foodie as it has a hole running inside it to capture more sauce. Imported from Italy, this gourmet pasta is made from the finest quality durum wheat semolina. It is shaped using the ancient, traditional bronze-drawn process that enhances the texture and surface to better absorb more seasonings and sauce. It is then slow dried to ensure a firm shape that will not break down during cooking. If you pair up with a pesto sauce and close your eyes while you eat it, it will take you to a traditional Osteria in no time.

Nutri Ninja Nutri Bowl Duo by Ninja ($139.99)


If I were to choose a single kitchen appliance to keep, it would be the Nutri Ninja Nutri Bowl duo. A Crazy Juice Lady's dream come true, this 1600-watt smoothie superhero allows you to crush literally anything into a superfood blended concoction AND even create your own dough at the touch of a button. This state-of-the-art blender allows the inner foodie to experiment with literally anything as it's capable of breaking down fully whole foods, ice, and seeds to really unlock the potential of fruits and veggies. And yes, you can even make your own healthy Nutella using the Ninja blender (click here for my vegan Nutella recipe and my full review.)
