Mother’s Day is May 8, 2022.
I’m always a little hesitant to celebrate moms by giving them kitchen stuff. The last thing a mom needs, especially on Mother’s Day, is feeling compelled to be in service to others. Most moms do that all day, every day.
I think some of the best gifts are ones that focus on her taking time for herself. Moms of younger kids tell me all they want is alone time. A nap, some nice teas or coffee, maybe a massage, or– better yet– a night at a hotel all by themselves. Moms with older or adult kids might prefer a brunch, at home or out, provided they don’t have to think about any of the logistics. They don’t want to make the reservation, they don’t want to coordinate transportation– a partner/kid’s job is to have this the one day Mom gets a break from the mental load.
If you want to gift mom with something for her kitchen, I included a few items that are pretty upgrades of things she may already have. And I threw in a cool herb wreath (you can get a quarterly wreath subscription from Creekside Farms) and flowers from UrbanStems— who also do flower subscriptions. It’s the gift that gives all year long! This post does contain some affiliate links, but opinions are my own.
And a note to all the mothers out there:
