We love giving Mother’s Day food gifts — probably because we love getting Mother’s Day food gifts! (And yes, that’s a massive hint. Just so we’re clear, family members.) So we’ve put together this gift guide of wonderful gourmet food gifts for Mother’s Day, many from indie companies and small purveyors.
We’ve got you covered in every price range, for nearly every kind of mom.
Except the mom who’d prefer that you make her a food gift yourself. In which case…oh wait. We have that covered for you too.

A food gift for the mom who looooves her chocolate
Artisanal BonBon Box ($25 and up, Stick With Me Sweets)

Salt & Straw Ice Cream Pint Delivery Club. ($65/month, Salt & Straw)
We are obsessed with the seasonal pint delivery club from the cult favorite Portland ice cream makers. Heck, sign her up for a whole year if you can. I’m sure she’ll find some way to finish them all, right?
A food gift for the mom who supports other women all she can
Murray’s Mother’s Day Cheese Collection ($100, Murray’s Cheese)
For the life of me, I couldn’t imagine what made this specifically a “Mother’s Day” collection — turns out, each of the cheeses and other treats are made exclusively by women cheesemakers and artisans across the USA. Fantastic!

A food gift for the mom who can’t live without her coffee
Buzzed Bundle Coffee-Lover’s Gift Set ($45-55, Farm to People)
We love basically every Mother’s Day food gift idea at Farm to People, but for us java-drinkers, we’re drawn to this clever little gift set that includes espresso marshmallow cookies, kona espresso brownies, and even an espresso nib peanut butter. Yes please!

How could she ever say no to roses on Mother’s Day? It comes in several gorgeous shades, but we love this lavender.
A food gift for the mom who loves to shop small
Mom’s The Word Indie Foods Tasting Box ($65, Mouth Foods)
While nearly all of the Mother’s Day food gifts here are from smaller brands and indie food makers, this is a perfect sampler too introduce her to some new labels she’ll love. You’ll find homemade toaster tarts, gourmet granola, passion fruit marshmallows…kind of hard to go wrong.
