It’s been said that food is the universal language, and as a food writer and avid daily eater, I couldn’t agree more. If you’re like me, you sometimes have a hard time verbally expressing appreciation for others — especially mom — so this Mother's Day, why not adopt the universal language of food and show mom how much you love and cherish her through a few edible Mother’s Day gifts?

From candy to sushi to home brewing kits, this edible Mother’s Day gift guide showcases 14 of the most delicious gift options out there. And with that, I wish you happy (edible) shopping, and a very Happy Mother’s Day!

The Kitchit Experience

Give the gift of experience. Thanks to Kitchit, this Mother’s Day you can spoil mom with a three-course meal at home where your personal chef brings the groceries, and then cooks, plates, and cleans for the entire family. Of course, you can choose from a variety of menus, and if mom has dietary restrictions, don’t worry. Kitchit can accommodate anything from gluten-free to vegan diets. I recommend the “Spring Decadence” menu, which includes pork belly and cockle spring chowder, braised duck cannelloni, and vanilla bean and buttermilk panna cotta.

Rekorderlig Strawberry-Lime Cider

And if you’re feeling extra fancy, turn that beverage into dessert. First, soak a bowl of fresh strawberries in cider for about 30 minutes. Then remove (or drink) excess cider, top with homemade whipped cream, and voila — Mother’s Day dessert!
