15 Mother’s Day Gifts for Every Kind of Foodie Mom
Another framed photo of you not going to cut it for this year’s Mother Day gift? Treat the #1 woman in your life to something she’ll actually use (and love) for her kitchen or dining room instead. Not that you’re not lovable and all, but we get the vibe she’d be much happier with a box of artisanal and well-designed chocolates, Joanna Gaines’ new cookbook, or do-it-all Instant Pot. Allow these gifts to inspire every kind of foodie mom.
