If you’re anything like us, gifting is often a last minute ordeal. Not because we don’t love the one we’re gifting, but maybe because there’s always a small hope that a miracle will happen and the perfect gift will fall into our hands. That’s not usually the case, though. So if you’re still shopping for mom this year, read on. If she loves food half as much as you do, we have some options that will definitely make this a Mother’s Day to remember.
Support local farms and give mom something to look forward to each week! If you’re not familiar, these Community Supported Agriculture baskets can be filled with fruits, veggies, or eggs, depending on which kind you order. They feature in season foods and things you (or at least Mom) have probably never tried before. Do a quick online search to find one near you!
A Week of Cooking from Yours Truly
A whole week might only work if you’re still living at home, but this priceless gift will give mom the staycation she needs. Mom loves to cook, but she needs a break sometimes! If you live further away, offer to cook her a meal of her choice the next time you’re home. Even if your cooking is less than perfect, we know she’ll love it anyway.
No pressure, but she’d definitely like this recipe for Halibut Tacos.
A Cooking Class
Obviously, Mom is the perfect cook in your life and nothing can top her homemade yummies. But – if she truly loves cooking, she’ll definitely love a class to learn something new! Depending on where she lives, you can send her to classes for bread making, mastering spices, and Indian cooking! Bonus points if you buy an extra pass for her to bring a friend. She might even take you!
Food Box Subscription
Let the cooking come to Mom! Get her a food box subscritption and she can spice up her meals every time a new box comes in each month. A few of our favorites: Chef’d, Turntable Kitchen, Carnivore Club, and Try the World.
Alternatively, Mom will probably love this one just as much. You can pick which wines she’ll like the most based on her tastes, and encourage her to tweak the subcription based on which ones she likes. A few good choices: Club W, Wine Awesomeness, and Wine of the Month Club.
