Mother’s Day Baking Gift Box
Surprise mom with a heartfelt gift box packed with baking goodies. This sweet care package from Etsy ships directly to her door, and it contains a mix of spatulas, spoons, measuring utensils and more. As an added bonus, you can customize this kitchen gift for mom with engraving options and her favorite colors.
Beautiful Air Fryer
We’re obsessed with Drew Barrymore’s “Beautiful” kitchenware collection, and mom will be, too. This 9-quart air fryer is a standout, thanks to its separated baskets and oodles of settings. Did we mention it also comes in five stunning colorways? Choose from black sesame, cornflower blue, oyster grey, sage green and white icing.
Luxe Standing Mat
Whether she’s washing dishes or kneading her best bread recipe, mom spends a lot of time on her feet. Cushion the blow with an anti-fatigue mat that feels as good as it looks. Available at The House of Noa, this geometric print comes in a myriad of colors and sizes to fit any space.
Personalized Brunch Board
Breakfast in bed is an iconic Mother’s Day tradition. Make it even more special by gifting mom her very own brunch board. This customizable gift from Etsy includes slots for all of her favorite eats and drinks. Plus, you can add a special name, date or saying in one of 10 fun designs.

Decorative Lasagna Pan
Mom’s famous for her incredible lasagna. And now, in addition to compliments for her recipe, she’ll garner “oohs” and “ahhs” for her casserole dish, too. This beauty from the Martha Stewart Collection is decorated with a sunny lemon pattern, plus it’s dishwasher- and oven-safe.
Recipe Dish Towel
Ditch the scratchy old towels; mom deserves something sweet and sentimental. This custom tea towel from Etsy is imprinted with a beloved recipe from her (or grandma’s!) kitchen. And the best part? It’s transferred in your loved one’s handwriting. Throw in a bouquet of Mother’s Day flowers for a pretty display.
Genius Fruit Bowl
Mom’s fruit desserts are out of this world, but she needs a place to stash all of her ingredients! Uncommon Goods’ just ripe fruit bowl makes it easy to separate ready to use fruits from those that are on deck. We love the added banana hanger, too.
Sending a gift through the mail this year? These Mother’s Day gifts ship straight to mom.
Mom will think of you every time she pulls out her new KitchenAid stand mixer. (Which—trust us—will be often!) There are lots of bells and whistles that make KitchenAid our Test Kitchen’s favorite mixer—but we can’t get enough of the blushing “Rose” color, either.
Embossed Rolling Pin
Help mom add a pretty pattern to her favorite shortbread cookies or pie crust with an embossed rolling pin. This wooden tool from Etsy, available in both medium and large sizes, imprints a floral design directly onto the dough.
Mom loves to cook, so give her a spot to jot down all of her favorite recipes. We love this recipe book’s bright, lemon cover that is sure to stand out on her cookbook shelf. Pick it up on Etsy. By the way, you can send these gifts straight to mom’s door.
Salad Gift Set
The mom who loves to entertain will adore unwrapping this salad gift set. It’s loaded with (almost) everything she needs to craft a delicious first course, including a cookbook, infused olive oil, balsamic vinegar and beautiful bowls.
Whether she’s putting together an epic cheese plate or snacking in the kitchen while making dinner, this marble board from Williams Sonoma is sure to come in handy. Plus, the honeycomb details and miniature bee embellishments make this platter a gift mom will treasure for years to come.
Spiralized veggies like zucchini, carrots and beets may just be the coolest thing since sliced bread. This 5-blade spiralizer, available on Amazon, means making your own at home will save you money. Plus, these gadgets make eating paleo and gluten-free super easy. Start with these recipes that long for zucchini noodles.
Could this gift be any cuter? This set of three salsa turtles will be the talk of mom’s next cookout. Available at Uncommon Goods, the handmade bowls pay homage to Mexican and Spanish pottery techniques. Load ’em up with pico de gallo, guacamole or any other homemade salsas.
Personalized Cutting Board
Whether she uses it for dinner prep or simply puts it on display, mom will think of you every time she looks at this personalized cutting board. Engrave it with the text of your choice and the names of mom’s dearest loved ones.
If mom’s idea of relaxing is getting her hands busy with a new baking project, she’ll love these Nordic Ware citrus-inspired cookie stamps. For an extra-special touch, be sure to include our recipe for lemon shortbread. Throw these adorable cookie stamps into one of our favorite Mother’s Day gift baskets for an extra touch.
What’s for Dinner? Dice
Sometimes, deciding what to make for dinner feels like more work than the actual cooking. Enter Foodie Dice! Just roll the dice to figure out the cooking method, protein, grains/carbs, herbs and bonus ingredients—plus one for seasonal veggies. Bye, bye decision fatigue. Hello, dinner!
Mom’s jaw will drop when she opens up this stunning Le Creuset Dutch oven. It’s perfect for making soups and stews, baking bread or slow-cooking roasts. We’re smitten with the rich “Fig” color, but there are plenty of other hues to choose from, too.
We know it’s a simple gift, but a sturdy spatula can go a long way. This one is from our very own Taste of Home cookware collection, so you can rest assured it’s been put through the paces by our Test Kitchen.
Slipping into this delicate apron from Anthropologie is a habit mom will enjoy day after day. The embroidered detail adds a feminine touch, while the machine-washable fabric ensures this is a practical addition to her kitchen.
Reusable Mister Bottle
Mom can use—and re-use—this non-aerosol bottle to spray her favorite cooking oils. The Misto olive oil sprayer also works great for vinegar or lemon or lime juice, which will come in handy during salad season.
Gold Measuring Cups
Looking for practical kitchen gifts for mom? We can all but guarantee her measuring cups have seen better days. Give her a new set from Crate & Barrel that is as precise (yet stylish!) as she is.
Bistro Cake Stand
Inspired by Parisian cafes, this Anthropologie cake stand will give mom’s decadent desserts the presentation they deserve. The black, white and gold accents make this pedestal suitable for year-round use.
