8 Edible Gifts For Mother's Day — All Under $40!

May 2 2014 - 1:26pm

All daughters want to spoil Mom for Mother's Day [1], but if you're on a budget, it's tough to find a luxurious gift that fits the bill. Luckily, these eight items, from bite-size cookies to chocolate-covered strawberries, are each under $40. Mom will feel good, and so will you.

Duff's Cakemix Cake in a Jar

Duff Goldman's cake [2] is one of the best things we've ever eaten, and now, his latest brand, Duff's Cakemix, offers cake in a jar [3] ($14 for two small jars) in vanilla, confetti (as pictured), chocolate, and marble. Wouldn't Mom love to cozy up with a jar of the ultimate comfort food?

Numi Flowering Tea

Give her both flowers and tea with Numi's flowering tea set [4] ($40). In the box are a variety of teas infused with everything from lavender to jasmine, plus a special teapot that showcases the gorgeous blossom as it unfurls.

Anna de Codorníu

Anna de Codorníu Cava Brut Rose [5] ($15) has an elegant pink bottle that matches the bubbles inside. A blend of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes, this dry sparkling wine with cherry notes will make Mom feel treated.


Harry and David Chocolate-Covered Strawberries

Any and every special occasion calls for chocolate-covered strawberries [6] ($30). These large berries are generously coated with tempered chocolate and garnished with white-chocolate letters. Let's just hope Mom is willing to share at least one!


Chateau d'Estoublon Huile d'Olive

Though it looks like perfume, this glass spray bottle contains olive oil! Chateau d'Estoublon Huile d'Olive [7] ($35) is a single-origin, estate-grown olive oil from Provence. We imagine Mom would love to spritz it on salads, pasta, fish, and chicken for a finishing touch.


Francois Payard Financiers

Sure, macarons are lovely, but they've been done. Instead, surprise Mom with a different fanciful pastry: Francois Payard Financiers [8] ($25). No one does these petite almond cakes better; give her an assortment of four flavors — almond, triple chocolate, vanilla, and apricot — for a lovely teatime treat.

Norman Love Chocolates

With bonbon flavors inspired by American desserts like apple pie, cookie dough, and brownie batter, Norman Love Mother's Day Chocolates [9] ($23 for 10 pieces) will let Mom indulge in her favorite treats in one bite.


Carla Hall Petite Cookies

Mom will appreciate sweet treats in teensy form. Carla Hall from ABC's The Chew created these sugar-cube-sized cookies [10] ($25) to help people get their sweet fix with a bit of portion control. Our favorites include the chewy black forest crinkle and cinnamon-y mexican-chocolate chip.
