Marley Spoon Subscription
"I’m getting my mom a subscription to this Martha-approved meal kit. She loathes grocery shopping more than anyone I know, so I think having ingredients delivered to her door will make her nights a little easier and cooking a little more fun for her."
—Riley Wofford, recipe tester
$76 for four 2-person meals per week, marleyspoon.com

Zalto Hand-Blown Universal Wine Glass
"I'm all about the right tool for the task. A friend of mine who's a sommelier swears by these, and now I can’t drink wine out of anything else! The glasses are lightweight yet remarkably sturdy and make a $7 bottle of wine taste like $50. I’d love to give or get these—all mothers deserve a glass of wine!"
—Shira Bocar, food editor at large
$59 for one glass, ahalife.com

Saipua Coffee Mint Soap
"My mom cooks with a lot of garlic, so I’d love to get her this kitchen soap that’s supposed to be great for removing the smell from your hands. It’s made with coffee grounds and peppermint oil, doesn’t use any artificial fragrances or perfumes, and is super-moisturizing to boot."
—Frances Kim, associate digital food editor
$18 for one bar, shop.saipua.com

Guittard Super Cookie Chocolate Chips + Kate Spade Oven Mitts
"I met my stepmom when she was baking chocolate chip cookies, and that turned into a tradition whenever I visit home. So a gift of chocolate chips is a symbolic one; paired with this festive oven mitt set, she’ll be baking in style."
—Lindsay Strand, associate food editor
$3.99 for one bag, available at Whole Foods markets; $35 for set of towel and oven mitts, bloomingdales.com

Solido Pizza Stone
"I'm going with a good-quality baking stone. Mom will be able to make pizzas that are better than delivery or DiGiorno, and stones are also great for other baking endeavors like breads and cookies. They can also be used on the grill. My stone basically lives in my oven."
—Greg Lofts, deputy food editor

Berkey Water Filtering System
"A great eco-friendly gift for any mom (and an easy way for her to cut back on water bottles)! The stainless steel makes it more durable, and it's free-standing (no plumbing hookup or fridge space required). I leave mine next to the sink so that it’s easy to fill and use the water for everything, including washing fruits and vegetables for my son."
—Lauryn Tyrell, senior food editor
$263 for 2.25-gallon capacity system, berkeywater.com
