This year we decided to think outside of the (Gift)box for Mother’s Day and ask some of our artisans(who are also moms) what they would want for Mother’s Day this year. While each of these women deserves to be pampered everyday for all their hard work in the kitchen and at home, they all seemed surprised that anyone would ask them what they want. We’re so glad we did because their responses allowed us to put together this amazing list of gifts for moms that love to cook, hike, eat and just relax.
Hedley & Bennett Ms. Marlin Chef Coat : This Chef’s coat is designed specifically for women, has the look and feel of a traditional chef’s coat but is designed with a cleaner cut to highlight a woman’s curves. Perfect for a day in the pasta kitchen according to Leah from Semolina Artisanal Pasta but also great for the home chef.
Darn Tough Micro Crew Hiking Socks: These hiking socks are made in Vermont but perfect for where ever your feet take you. These socks are comfortable, durable and perfect for those days out in mountains or the urban jungle.
Chelsea Miller Chef’s Knife –These knives are for someone who takes their knife work very seriously. Hand Made by Chelsea Miller, herself, each knife is a one-of-a-kind. The perfect gift for your one-of-a-kind-mom who likes to cook. To be honest, these knives are so amazing you could consider each one a work of art.
Persiana by Sabrina Ghayour – Lucy of Lucy’s Granola made it clear that she would love a home-cooked meal on Mother’s Day but not something ordinary. She loves this cookbook and would eat anything from it. Apparently, it is pretty difficult to get Ethnic Ingredients up in Maine so she would also love some of the special ingredients needed to cook from this book. Persiana is full of recipes from the Middle East bringing a lot of flavor to your table.
Stasher Bags –These bags are perfect for snacks and lunch on the go while also taking care of the environment. In half gallon, sandwich and snack sizes these bags are perfect for mother’s and their children and they aren’t just for holding food. Cook in quantity and freeze portions to make packing lunch easy and feel good about reusing the bag. Stasher bags are also great for carrying make up and small toy parts.
Plants – Whether you choose something with a flower or not, plants definitely make moms smile. This Herb Garden Kit from The Tasteful Garden is perfect for the mom who likes to grow and also cook. I’m secretly hoping I’ll find this waiting for me on Mother’s Day.
Maia Moda Breastfeeding Top –Give a pregnant or breastfeeding mom a wardrobe update that is beautiful yet still functional. For those days when you want to upgrade your look to something a little closer to your pre-mommy style, the ladies over at Maia Moda have you covered (literally). This dual purpose maternity and breastfeeding top has it all from style to versatility and is even machine washable. Not to mention the entire line is made in the USA.
Pair any one of these gifts with one of our gift sets and your Mother will feel like a queen for the day! I hope my family reads this list so I get something amazing.
