There are many things to love about mom, but perhaps nothing more than her cooking. Even if her overcooked lasagna or dry meatloaf isn’t gourmet, it’s a reminder of home and a symbol of her unconditional love. Cue the “aww” audience track from Full House.
To show your appreciation for all of these special dishes, why not return the favor and send her a food-focused gift for Mother’s Day? There are plenty of wonderful options to choose from, many of which are (shockingly!) under $15. (Moms have always told us to save our money, after all.)
Check out 10 of my favorites from Amazon. They won’t live up to an “I Love Mom” tattoo on your bicep, but there is no doubt that she will appreciate the sentiment.
Miracle Berry by Richberry, $14.99
If mom failed science and you want to boggle her mind with a food sweetener, gift her these magic berries that will make tart and sour ingredients like lemons and vinegar more palatable. They’re not only fun to try but also useful to disguise cooking gone awry.
Mom’s future is looking bright! And if she doesn’t believe it, maybe a fortune cookie will convince her otherwise.
Mamasaurus Wine Tumbler Cup, $15.99
Since she turns into a T-Rex without her daily glass of vino, the least you can do is turn her into a laughing T-Rex (because of this gift) so that she’s a little less scary.
You may not be able to surprise mom with a trip to Rome, but you can certainly bring the flavors of Italy to her kitchen with this pasta and rabe sauce kit. Charming and handsome Italian man not included.
Tea Drops Bagless Tea Assortment, $12.99
The Queen would likely scoff at such a thing, but these bagless teas are perfect for the mom on the go who doesn’t have time to measure and steep the loose-leaf variety. Nobody said that all moms have to be classy!
Mother’s Day Wooden Spoon Set (Currently out of stock)
The irony is that she may have broken one or two of these on you as a kid. Remind her that these are for stirring sauces or scrambling eggs, not for corporal punishment.
These are a little sweet and a little salty, kind of like mom. I never met a chocolate-covered pretzel I didn’t like, and Zoe’s are no exception.
Favorite Child Cutting Board, $14.74
If it’s engraved in wood, it has to be official. Right? Right. Or at least that’s what I’m telling my little sister.
If anyone was punished for cursing as a kid and wants some not-so-subtle revenge, this hot sauce kit makes a perfect gift for one spicy mama.
First Mommy Meltdown Wine Bag, $12.99
Swap baby bottles for wine bottles. It’s always good to have an emergency wine on standby, especially for new moms who need (and deserve!) a break.
