10 Edible Gifts for Mother’s Day, From a Wine Subscription to a Care Package Full of Biscuits
There’s never been a year like this one to highlight how important it is to make sure mothers feel loved and pampered on Mother’s Day—especially when so many of us can’t fete her in person. And if you are quarantined with Mom, she’s never needed a special, delicious treat like this year (because she has likely been working and possibly homeschooling and definitely cooking way too much of late). Don’t panic… there’s still time to order a fabulous food gift. Check out these 10 fantastic options.

What could be more delicious and relaxing than enjoying nine glass-sized samples of wine clustered in a charming box? Answer: Enjoying it three more times. Enroll her in VINEBOX’s Quarterly Wine Club, pick a theme, and receive four effusive thank you calls between now and next Mother’s Day. The Vineyard Fresh collection includes the first rosé of the season and a semi-sweet wine from Spain.

She can use the first magical cube, which when dropped into a glass of any kind of sparkling wine turns it into a mimosa or bellini cocktail, on Mother’s Day. And then she’ll have 17 more to share or keep for the next day she feels like celebrating herself (which—come on—should be every day). Choose between Citrus Trio (orange, grapefruit, and lemon) or Peaches & Berries Trio (strawberry, raspberry, and peach). And cheers to all the Moms.
