There's nothing like a home-cooked meal. If your mom's a chef in the kitchen, she can chop away with these Mother's Day gifts.

Whether it’s lemon squares or bubbling lasagna, there’s always one thing you can never make quite like your mom, even if you’re following her handwritten recipe word for word.

If you aren’t living under the same roof anymore, you probably miss a homemade meal from your mom now and again — even if it’s just the way she makes peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.

With Mother’s Day on May 10 this year, you could be looking to get your mom a special gift that’ll get delivered right to her door (especially if you can’t be with her IRL). From her favorite fresh flowers (and you can throw in a cute planter so she can watch those peonies grow) to a handmade gift that she can’t find anywhere else, you don’t have to look too far for gifts that’ll actually make her smile.

But if your mom wears an apron proudly around the kitchen, you could be wondering what to get her. She already knows the secret to cutting an onion without crying and getting a flakiest crust possible on a pie, after all.

Still, there might be gadgets, tools and dishes that she doesn’t have or have been worn out from all the years of tasting and testing out recipes. From a splatter screen that’ll keep frying oil from leaping up onto the stovetop to a on-sale Le Creuset cookware that she’s dreamed of owning, we rounded up the best Mother’s Day gifts for the foodie mom.
