Eating is a natural part of life but there are certain souls out there that take their love of food to the next level. They've got all the kitchen tools. They read Food and Wine like its scripture. They eat slowly and savor every bite. And OK, that used to irritate you as a kid but you get it now that you're an adult (sorry mom).
If your mom is a bonafide "foodie," then you're in for a treat. Today, we're serving up seven special gift ideas that your mom will eat up — literally and figuratively.
Imperfect Produce Box (Price Varies)
On a mission to reduce food waste, Imperfect Produce delivers fresh fresh fruits and veggies that otherwise would have been tossed due to bumps and bruises. But come on — it's 2019 and it's time to embrace the imperfections because while they may look different on the outside, it's still the nutritious life-giving food on the inside. #BornThisWay and proud.
You can gift a subscription by contacting Imperfect Produce's customer care team.
Stasher Bundle ($53.96)
Once mom gets a hold of her imperfect bounty, she's going to need a place to store them and hey, wouldn't ya know it? We've got a solution for her. A Stasher Bundle is the perfect entry into plastic-free living because our bags are made with platinum silicone that are hypoallergenic, BPA-free, and don't use petroleum or toxic chemicals in the manufacturing process.
Plus, we're a member of 1% for the Planet, which means 1% of our sales go to non-profits that protect the environment so you're really swinging a feel-good double hitter here.
Pascha Chocolates ($3.95+)
While we could go to town on a chocolate bar all by itself in no time flat, we're sure your mom could think of a million different ways to use a vegan, organic, everything-free (dairy, soy, gluten, peanut, tree nut) 70% cacao dark chocolate bar infused with Arabica coffee. Like tossing some shavings in her morning porridge. Why didn't we think of that?!
Self-described as obsessed with purity, Pasha Chocolates are clean, two ways: for as a food and for the environment. We're over here yelling "go team" to our fellow 1% for the Planet business.
Tonewood Maple Cube Kit ($42.99)
Speaking of shavings, we're kind of enamored with this maple shaving kit from a little company called Tonewood nestled in a little town in Vermont. We're not sure if you're aware of all the health benefits of maple, but Tonewood as the lowdown, calling out maple's disease fighting anti-oxidants and is loaded with nutrients, including manganese, iron, calcium, zinc, and potassium.
We're going to go ahead and call it now: maple cubes are going to be the next big trend in food and your mom is going to be on the bleeding edge of cool.
Agate Cheese Platter ($78)
Since we're talking about trends, here's one for you to nibble on: upgraded snack time. We've seen individual charcuterie platters popping up in offices left and right, all in an effort to slow down and take a moment to yourself during a busy day.
We feel like your mom totally needs one of these personal sized agate platters (not gonna lie — so do we) from Anthropologie to really make her breaks feel luxurious and give her that moment of snacking zen she's been craving.
Hettie Cheese Knife Set ($38)
Add another layer of luxury to mom's slow snack experience with a nice set of cheese knives, like the Hettie from Anthropology. Warning: her desk is going to turn into the hottest dining location in the office so she might as well start taking reservations now.
Thrive Market Annual Subscription ($60)
It's one of our favorite places to shop, so we're sure your mom is going to appreciate the highly curated food options from Thrive Market that are guaranteed to be sustainable, organic, and free of chemicals and other unpronounceable ingredients you come to find on the shelves of a traditional grocery store. Plus, they take out the middle man to give you wholesale prices, have zero waste shipping facilities and deliver in 100% recyclable packaging.
Another win-win-win for you, mom, and the environment.
Treat Yo Self
Sure, it's Mother's Day but we want to reward you, too: join the Plastic Free Movement (warning: do good, feel good vibes ahead!) and get 20% off your first order.
