Does your mom love pinning amazing casseroles on Pinterest? Does she experiment with new ways to sneak zucchini or avocados into brownies? If there’s nothing she enjoys more than making her famous blueberry muffins on Saturday mornings, then this is the gift guide just for her.
1. Stoneware Baking Dish
Give mom an elegant, contemporary dish that looks good on display in the kitchen or on the dining room table. The graystone-glazed stoneware will make her favorite recipes look like they came right out of a glamorous food magazine. Soneware builds up a nonstick seasoning over time, so the more she uses it, the better it cooks. This baker will give cooks consistent results with everything from cakes to casseroles and keeps cleanup duty simple, too.
2. Egg Cooker
Help mom get a fast, healthy protein boost for breakfast or anytime. In minutes, she can make either a basic omelet or add in extras like veggies, cheese, or bacon. This egg cooker is also awesome for oatmeal, a quick chocolate cake or a blueberry lemon muffin.
3. Shallow Baker
The unique shape and clean design of this stoneware baker will let mom take any meal right from the oven to the table for a stunning presentation. She’ll love the fact she won’t have to dirty another dish.
4. Cold Brew Pitcher
Cold brew coffee is smoother and richer than coffee that’s brewed in a traditional coffee maker. It’s also fantastic to have on hand as warm spring days turn into hot summer days. This Cold Brew Pitcher not only makes coffee exactly to your taste, it also stores drinks for up to a week. Is your mom not a coffee drinker? The pitcher has an interchangeable insert for brewing tea, too!
5. Silicone Baking Mat
This two-sided mat takes all the fuss out of spacing cookies on a baking sheet. One side fits small and medium-sized cookies, the other side works for spacing larger ones. No more watching cookies melt together into a mega cookie (well…that’s not always a bad thing!) or struggling to pop them off the cookie sheet.
6. Vegetable Slicer
This a cool kitchen tool every busy mom needs. It slices food in seconds. Line up tomatoes, mushrooms, avocados, hard-boiled eggs—even mozzarella, then slice, slice, slice! Salads done! This is one you’ve got to see in action.
7. Scoop & Spread
Three tools in one, this is like the Swiss-army-knife of the kitchen. It lets you scoop condiments out of a jar and spread them smoothly and slices through toast and bagels with ease. Your mom won’t know what she did before she had this. It can scoop out every last bit out of almost any condiment bottle, even those odd-shaped ones that always seem to have curves or edges a regular knife just can’t quite reach. This is another item that makes a sweet gift topper. Why not tie it with a bow to a jar of her favorite flavor jam?
8. Wine Bottle Opener
When she can open a bottle of wine in under 15 seconds, your mom will wow all her friends with this gift. They’ll all want this Wine Bottle Opener, too. It includes a foil cutter, so no more struggling with peeling back the foil and tearing it. With a push of a button—wine is ready! Recharges quickly through a USB or wall outlet.
9. Serving Tray
The ultimate entertaining piece, especially for moms always on the go. This serving tray comes with two reversible cooling inserts that keep dips, salads, fruit, and veggies cool for 4-6 hours. Each insert has 12 wells for deviled eggs. Clear inner trays let mom customize her tray to whatever event she’s planning. Big, beautiful salad with no tray dividers—check. A veggie platter with homemade onion dip—check. A half veggie/half fruit tray—check. A whole tray of her crowd-pleasing deviled eggs—check. A burger bar toppings tray—check. Sky’s the limit.
10. Small Ridged Baker
Mom will get the same great cooking results she gets from all Pampered Chef stoneware, but with the added benefit of a raised surface. The ridges keep juices, fats, and excess water off whatever is being cooked—from bacon and meatballs to steamed veggies to chicken tenders. Great meals together as a family will get even better.
11. Batter Bowl
Not only is this a practical kitchen tool for under $20, but you can dress it up as sweet gift for Mother’s Day. Fill it with her favorite candies, or layer it with ingredients for her favorite dessert or pancake mix. (Bonus—you can make the recipe together as a family!) The lid and handle make it easy to decorate with a ribbon—maybe tie on a Batter Scraper with a gift tag!
