We love moms. They are the backbones of our families, our role models, our biggest cheerleaders, our booboo healers and really, our best friends. So, we think you should treat your mom this May 10th (Mother's Day!) with something ultra-special. Sure, moms love brunch and flowers, but if you're looking for something a little extra but you're feeling a little stuck on what to get, we're sharing 10 foodie-inspired gifts that are perfect for the mom who loves to cook, the tech-savvy mom and even the coffee, tea or wine enthusiast.

If your mom is the type who likes to whip up a batch of pancakes or chocolate chip cookies any chance she gets, this Universal Expert’s Silicone Utensil set is the perfect gift.

For The Mom Who Loves to Cook:
Brown Eggs & Jam Jars Cookbook
Brown Eggs and Jam Jars is the long-awaited cookbook from Aimée Wimbush-Bourque (of the blog Simple Bites). This is a family-friendly cookbook with a focus on urban homesteading, though it's relevant even for those of us who don't raise our own chickens or grow all our own produce. We love this book for any mom who is looking to get back to basics in the kitchen and who wants to focus on whole eating with their families.
Available at Indigo | $25.00
For The Tech-Savvy Mom
Cuisine Tablet Recipe Holder
We all love techy things, but if moms kitchen is cozy rather than ultra-modern, a metallic or stark white piece may stick out like a sore thumb. Which is why we love this tablet holder from Pottery Barn. Resembling a vintage breadboard, with a raised lip to hold your e-Tablet, this sturdy kitchen helper keeps recipes and other helpful cooking information at your fingertips.
Available at Pottery Barn | $52.33
For The Coffee Enthusiast
As huge coffee lovers, we are obsessed with the entire line of Nespresso products (our Editor who is a mom has a Nespresso VirtuoLine at home). The Inissia has recently caught our eye due to the array of playful colors to choose from (think ruby red, blueberry blue and lime yellow). Bonus? The small size and weight are ideal for smaller kitchens. So, for those looking for the perfect gift for your mom who loves her morning (and afternoon) latte, americano or espresso, this is the real deal.
Available in-store and online at Hudson's Bay | $149.95
