Mother knows best.

That we won’t argue. But you can also show her that you’ve learned a few tricks along the way. For smart gifts to celebrate her come May 12, look no further: We present Tasting Table’s Mother’s Day Gift Guide.

Nothing says, “I love you, Mom” like a loaf of cheesecake enveloped in a graham-cracker crust, or a freshly shaken cocktail made with saffron-infused syrup. Let her indulge her green thumb with a chalkboard wall planter or a subscription to Modern Farmer. She can perfect her flipping skills with the ideal cooking tool, or change up her morning cup of coffee.

Gifts edible, handcrafted and functional will make her day.

We’re certain of it.
