Moms are modern-day superheroes. They work hard and sacrifice a lot for their families, so they deserve all the pampering they can get.

With this Mother’s Day gift guide, we can help you accomplish that. Here, we’ve compiled a list of thoughtful gifts for marvelous moms — they deserve it!

1. Spices

If your mom is a cooking aficionado, then treat her with her favorite spices. We don’t mean a bottle of smoked paprika from your local grocery store. Think outside the box and look for unique spices to help your mom get creative in the kitchen. From Kampot black pepper to Timut wild pepper, our Peugeot spices are thoughtful Mother’s Day gifts that will transform your mom’s homemade recipes into culinary masterpieces.

Our spices can make great additions to a well-curated modern Mother’s Day gift basket. Pair them with a cookbook from her favorite celebrity chef or with a new kitchen accessory. Create a thoughtful basket that highlights what your mom loves about cooking.

2. Spice Mills and Shakers

If you’re making a gift basket, add some spice mills and shakers in with those unique spices. After all, this thoughtful Mother’s Day gift will keep her kitchen free from mess — and make her space look more aesthetic.

We offer a variety of spice mills that can suit your mom’s needs (and wants). Our vast collection is curated for every spice imaginable, from the traditional salt and pepper to whole nutmeg and other unique spices.

More than just keeping your mom’s spices fresh, our spice mills and shakers can add that touch of fun to her otherwise plain kitchen. Whether you’re looking for a mill made from natural walnut or aluminum, we have the perfect thoughtful Mother’s Day gift for you to give.

3. Bakeware Set

If your mom loves baking, then a new bakeware set is your best bet. And if you’re not sure what to choose, our Mother’s Day gift guide will help you pick the best set for your mom’s needs.

If you’re a fan of her lasagnas and gratins, the best modern Mother’s Day gift is a square ceramic baking set. Sizes range from 8 to 14 inches, making this set perfect for various baked goods. If your mom loves baking casseroles for special occasions, a rectangular ceramic baking set should be your thoughtful Mother’s Day gift. Sizes range from 10 to 14 inches, making them perfect for larger meal prep.

Or look for specialty ceramic baking dishes,for moms who prefer baking smaller portions or more unique dishes.

4. Coffee & Tea Gifts

Coffee and tea are great presents, especially if your Mom loves drinking these caffeinated beverages — and who doesn’t?

Show appreciation for everything she does by going all out with her present. Ditch the usual grocery brand, and instead, get her the finest roasts. There’s the Kopi Luwak, which is a specialty coffee made from the movements of Asian palm civets. Another great option is the Hacienda La Esmeralda, which is a gourmet coffee blend harvested from Chriqui, Panama.

Pair these fine coffees with modern coffee accessories to elevate her morning routine. Consider a new coffee press so she can truly appreciate the depth of flavor in her coffee or a coffee mill so she can grind her own beans at home.

5. Wine Serving Basics

Our wine-serving basics serve as thoughtful Mother’s Day gifts, especially for moms who love to relax and unwind with their favorite red or white. In fact, they’re ideal for mothers who are fond of hosting parties as well!

Our Mother’s Day gift guide features a lot of great options, from contemporary decanters, chilling buckets, and corkscrews to vacuum pumps and a complete sommelier wine kit. Whether you pick one or several from our modern Mother’s Day gift collection, your present will surely put a big smile on your mom’s face.

Meanwhile, intricately woven Turkish throws are versatile enough to be placed on the sofa or the bed. Your mom can even take them outdoors!
