Kitchen gifts are almost always appreciated and this bestselling gadget is a winner in many kitchens. My mom swears by her air fryer, using it several times a week, if not every day. She hasn’t deep fried food in years, but with the air fryer she cooks perfect fish and sweet potatoes and her own tortilla chips.
As someone who still refers to my mother’s house as “home” even though I’ve never lived there, I love the simple message and graphic on this personalized gift. You can put any two map locations on the coffee mug and your mom is sure to love the thought.
If you know someone who is a fan of Fixer Upper, Joanna Gaines’ new cookbook is a must have for her. Magnolia Table was just released and features recipes inspired by Gaines family favorites as well as some from the couple’s new Waco restaurant of the same name.
If your mom has a green thumb, this planter is a great idea. It can be used both indoors and outdoors and it’s designed to be easy to use either sitting or standing.
This personalized charm necklace is a lovely gift for any mom or grandmother, and there’s a version with four discs if you need a bit more space for names.
Moms tend to stay super busy. If you want to give your mom the gift of a day at the beach even when she doesn’t have time to get to the beach, start with this extra chill patio table. She can sit out in the backyard sipping her drink of choice as it stays cold and catching up on all her reading (that is, taking a relaxing afternoon nap in the shade).
Because even if she doesn’t technically have super powers, every mom is a wonder woman. This tote bag is cute and fun, and even if your mom is Team Marvel instead of Team DC, she’ll love this sturdy bag big enough to carry a wallet, a pair of shoes, and a lasso of truth.
