Moms do a lot, from teaching you how to act like a gentleman on a first date to making sure you eat all your veggies to cleaning off any smudges on your cheeks with her thumb…responsibilities that don’t end when you technically enter “grown-up” territory. Show her your appreciation this Mother’s Day by doing a lot for her, starting with a few gifts recommended by Eat. See. Play.

Ted Baker – Caranna Tote Bag
Simple light pink and black color blocking gives the Caranna tote bag from Ted Baker some class while a flower print lining adds a hint of fun. It’s large enough to hold all of Mom’s essentials (plus the rest of the family’s) and is equipped with internal zip pockets so she can easily find tissues, gum or chapstick at a moment’s notice.
Shari’s Berries – Chocolate-Covered Cookies
Oreos, graham crackers and Nutter Butters were the treats that defined your childhood. Reminisce about those happy days by enjoying the next-level version of those sweets (a.k.a. covering them in creamy milk chocolate) with Shari’s Berries chocolate-covered cookie collection. Fingers crossed that Mom doesn’t keep them all for herself.
Paragon Sports – Yoga Mat
Whether Mom’s into yoga or simply meditating after a long day of laughing at Dad’s corny jokes, a gift of her own yoga mat will let her practice at home or in a studio. Made with innovative, eco-friendly material, the natural fitness eco-smart yoga mat provides non-slip traction during the most intense practice – thus preventing Mom from slipping out of warrior pose.
Chalk It Up
Red Envelope – Personalized Chalk Board
Personalize this sophisticated chalkboard with a name, year, location and a loving Mother’s Day message. It’s the perfect way for Mom to jot down recipes, grocery lists or how long it’s been since you last visited.Related: Book Gift Ideas For Mom On Mother’s Day
Amazon – Marc Forgione: Recipes And Stories
Some Moms love to read about cooking just as much (if not more) than they love whipping up a Top Chef-worthy meal. Iron Chef America star and The Next Iron Chef winner Marc Forgione’s new book mixes 170 recipes and gorgeous photos with stories of his unlikely rise to the top. Home cooks and aspiring chefs will find their culinary skills elevated with recipes like Chili Lobster, White Gazpacho with Laughing Bird Shrimp, and Salt-Crusted Rack of Lamb.
With All ‘Do Respect
Amazon – Argan For You Hair Products
You may never notice how your mom’s hair looks, but she certainly does. Help her maintain her mane with SHE by SO.CAP.USA’s Argan For You product line, an array of Italian-made hair-care products including shampoo, conditioning masks and curling cream, enriched with luxurious Argan Oil. You don’t have to know what that means, but she will.
If your mom likes wine, the stainless steel Corkcicle.ONE is the all-in-one device, simultaneously chilling, aerating and capping any bottle of wine. And with the signature icicle design, it’s pretty darn cool looking. If she doesn’t like wine, this may be enough to turn her.
Anchor Hocking – Heritage Hill Jar
As any mother knows, summertime drinks are as much about taste as they are presentation. The elegant Anchor Hocking Heritage Hill Jar will make any of Mom’s concoctions dazzle, dispensing drinks while keeping them fresh and cool.
