Go and take a peek in your mom’s pantry. Do you see multiple varieties of salt? Or, a collection of gourmet teas? If she loves to eat as much as she loves to cook, and is known to enjoy every meal as a sensory experience, she’s a foodie. And the best Mother’s Day gift for a foodie is the one that celebrates her interest in all things cuisine.
Here are my top picks for Mother’s Day Gift Ideas for the foodie in your life — all under $40.
A Little Pick-Me-Up
Nomad is a coffee subscription company specializing in eco-friendly and fair-trade offerings from around the world. There’s a feel-good component to this gift: with every purchase, Nomad gives back to its network of farmers to improve sustainable coffee growing.
When you gift the Nomad Club, mom gets a monthly sample from roasters around the world. Her beans are delivered fresh, complete with tasting notes and brewing tips.
The Coffee Companion
A cup o’ Joe and a soft-baked biscotti is a lovely way to start the day. These treats by Marlo’s Bakeshop are delish — not too sweet and just the perfect amount of crunch to hold up when dipped in coffee. They’re made with clean, natural ingredients too.
Marlo’s soft-baked biscotti variety pack has four flavors: banana bread, coffee cake, banana bread and chocolate chip brownie. They’re all tasty, but I especially love the original and chocolate chip brownie.
