Mother's Day Gifts For The Mom Who Loves To Cook — Or Just Eat

When you were little, you could get away with a handmade card and some daffodils from the front yard on Mother's Day. But now that you're an adult, you should maybe aim a little higher (and not just because you have a bit more spending money than you did when you were eight). If moving out of the house has taught you anything, it's that you're never too old to need your mom. She's on speed-dial for everything from medical advice to cooking questions.

So, this Mother's Day, why not get her some gifts that are a big upgrade from the semi-cooked pancakes of holidays past? We've rounded up 15 kitchen-friendly presents for the amazing mothers (and grandmothers, and aunts) in our lives — the ones who appreciate good food as much as we do. Another plus? No counter cleanup required.
