Celebrate In Culinary Style
If you're on the market for a last-minute Mother's Day gift, you've come to the right place. If your mom likes to cook, bake, or simply enjoy food, wine, and dining, it's simple to pamper her with a gift that will keep on giving, even if you're on a tight budget this year.
Give the gift of (in)vino
Invino.com is the original private sale source for wine lovers. Invino now offers three different wine clubs—red lovers, red + white, and white + sparkling lovers—all hand-selected by an experienced tasting panel. At up to 80 percent off retail, a gift card for mom to join the wine club of her choice is the perfect way to make sure mom won't get thirsty for at least three months.
One of the most challenging parts of cooking is doing the dishes. B. Witching Bath Co. has a Culinary Bar Soap ($5.95) designed to exfoliate hands with natural walnut shell particles and help alleviate rough patches from the cuts and burns chefs often get while cooking. Reality TV's "Top Chef" contestant, celebrity chef, restaurant owner, and new mom, Nikki Cascone, is said to be a big fan of this product.
Don't let it burn
If mom is a great cook, but constantly burning the bottoms of her pans, it might be time for an upgrade. A heavy-bottomed All-Clad from Williams-Sonoma is a great investment in any mother's culinary repertoire—and it will last a lifetime.
Bowl her over
If your mother loves to invite friends over to dish over delicious food and wine, help her grow her collection of serving pieces. An elegant salad bowl from the Martha Stewart collection is a timeless piece that will look perfect at the center of any meal — especially once it's full of delicious vegetables.
How does your garden grow?
If mom loves to cook with fresh spices and herbs, but lacks a green thumb to grow her own, help get her her garden started with a Year of Seeds from RedEnvelope.com. If you're late to the shopping game, order them online and print off a picture to put in her Mother's Day card. This way, she'll have something to look forward to even after her special day.
