mothersday.jpgI can hardly believe we are already well into spring and Mother’s Day is just around the corner. Hopefully the weather will stay nice and all us mother’s can celebrate ourselves and be pampered with a nice meal outside on a beautiful patio, drink in hand. At least that’s what I’m envisioning this year.

Buying the right gift for someone can be tricky, but today I’ll give you some great gift ideas for the Mom who loves to entertain. What better way to spend Mother’s Day than with people you love and new gifts to try out in the kitchen.

Sushi anyone?

I would have no idea where to start making sushi if anyone asked me, but I do enjoy eating it. I love that this set comes with a recipe book for delicious sushi ideas and looks really easy to use for sushi novices.

Fresh Herb Savour

Having the herbs stay standing up so the moisture stays at the bottom of the stalks makes perfect sense, and with the refillable water well, you can ensure your fresh herbs last longer. The sleek design won’t take up too much fridge space either.


A cooking knife

This stainless steel knife is crafted with the highest standard in Japan and is lightweight and resists corrosion.


Kitchen tools

I love having a pop of colour in my kitchen too, sometimes it feels like everything is stainless steel in there. This Pedrini 5-Piece Kitchen Tool Set has every tool you’ll need for basic cooking and serving.

This set includes a large spatula, slotted turner, slotted spoon, spoonula, and tongs. The spatula, turner, spoon and spoonula all have high heat resistant silicone heads and all five of them are dishwasher safe which means easier clean up after. I love having my utensils standing up on the counter in a beautiful canister style holder. They can be part of your kitchen design, and are handy when needed. No more digging around the utensil drawer trying to find the right one your’re looking for.

A digital cutting boardcutting board.jpg

Yes, that’s right, a digital cutting board. Sometimes I’m blown away at some of the kitchen gadgets you can buy now a days. This CTA Digital Bamboo Cutting Board with iPad Stand and Knife Storage has everything you could want in a cutting board, and a few extras.

Bamboo is durable and antibacterial which makes for the perfect cutting board. On top of that this board comes with a groove to stand your iPad in with a screen shield to protect from any food splashes that may occur. There’s also eight knife storage slots in total on the end edges of the board.

For the wine lover

The wine bottle opener has a four blade foil cutter built right in and a patented cork release, making opening your favourite bottle of wine a breeze, and with the VinOair aerator you’ll be sure to get the perfect glass of wine every time you pour.



I love having a nice set of dishes to be able to serve meals on when guests come over. This Noritake Hummingbird Meadow 12-Piece Porcelain Dinnerware Set is beautiful to serve a meal to friends with. They are also dishwasher and microwave safe wich is always convenient too.


A Vitamix

vitamix.jpgI would love a Vitamix for Mother’s day, actually I think most moms I know would love one too. They have so many options and can make food prep and cooking a breeze. This Vitamix Professional 500 Gallery 1.89L 1380-Watt Countertop Blender is on the top of my list this year.

This blender has a 2.0 horsepower motor, laser cut stainless steel blades, a pulse setting and 13 speed levels. You can become a breakfast smoothie master with this blender, as well as other blended drinks, soups and so much more.

Kitchen islands

This island has two drawers, two shelves and 12 cubes for extra storage. You can safely lock it in place with its durable castor locking wheels or unlock them and push it out of the way when you need more space for entertaining large groups.

I always used to envision Mother’s Day as a day where I got to put my feet up and have the boys in my house cater to me for a change, but I love having family and friends over, and why not let us women all celebrate together. If this amazing weather holds up too, then I can see a beautiful meal outside on the patio. I know I’ll be buying some special gifts for the mothers in my life who love to entertain this Mother’s Day, what will you be buying for the special moms in your life?

Check out for some great Mother’s Day gift ideas.
