When you’re looking for the best kitchen gifts for mom, you want them to be things that enhance her time in the kitchen.
In other words, get her kitchen gifts that save her time and make her happy!
Therefore, since I’m a mom who happens to spend a lot of time in the kitchen, I’ve thoughtfully put together this list of 37 best kitchen gifts for mom that anybody would LOVE to have!
Best Kitchen Gifts for Mom
While I was making this list, I had to keep reminding myself that the items should be ‘tools in her toolbox’ that will help her make her time in the kitchen more efficient.
Also, they need to be items that will highlight the food she prepares and allow the home cook to work smarter, not harder.
In addition, there have to be some kitchen essentials that will induce happy thoughts and give mom an enjoyable experience.
Let’s just say, choosing something like a pair of oven mitts as a gift isn’t the most exciting thing to receive!
After all, if there’s no joy in the kitchen, momma ain’t gonna want to keep cookin’!
So, without further ado, here are 37 of the best kitchen gifts for mom!
1. Electric Lunch Box
I got my husband this Crockpot Electric Lunch Box for Christmas last year and it has paid off in spades!
Not only does he love eating a good, hot lunch at work, but I don’t have to pack him a separate lunch.
Instead, I put the previous dinner’s leftovers in the crockpot and stick it in the fridge for him to take to work the following day.
It comes in several different colors too.
2. Deviled Egg Carrier
3. Salad Server
This is a very useful gift that I had no idea I’d need in my life!
This Single Handed Salad Server is so handy for scooping out salad into bowls. No need for awkward tongs or the long handled salad servers. This scoop does all the work with one hand.
4. Cut & Serve Turner
Every woman who enjoys cooking and baking in the kitchen needs at least one Cut and Serve Turner like this.
It’s one of those kitchen tools that will get a lot of use!
It’s small enough to flip over cookies, chicken nuggets, French fries, and anything else small.
5. Recipe Binder
Before I got this Fabric-Covered Recipe Binder with Dividers and Labels all of my recipes were just thrown haphazardly in my recipe box.
This binder organizes your recipes so that you have easy access to your favorite family recipes and can find what you’re looking for fast!
Ultimately, it will save SO much time for the home chefs in your household!
6. Electric Percolator
K cups just do not compare to freshly brewed coffee made in this 12 Cup Electric Percolator Coffee Maker.
Out of all the coffee makers we’ve owned, this classic percolator is our favorite, making the perfect pot of coffee.
It gets very good use in my own kitchen.
7. Coffee Grinder
And if you’re going to make your coffee in a good percolator, why not go a step further and grind whole coffee beans?
This coffee grinder will do the trick!
It’s a great kitchen gift for the coffee drinkers in your home as well as when you have guests visiting.
8. Coffee Mugs
Clearly, you might as well drink that coffee in a pretty coffee cup!
I love this ceramic mug set with spoons!
In addition, these can be enjoyed by the tea lover in your household as well.
9. Coffee Mug Warmer
Now that you have a stellar cup of coffee in your favorite mug, for Pete’s sake (as my Mom used to say), don’t let it get cold! This mug warmer is just what you need!
10. Hammer Mallet Tool
This Hammer Mallet Tool and Chicken Pounder comes in so handy when preparing chicken for dinner.
Just place your chicken breasts between wax paper and pound until the chicken gets to an even thickness.
SO much easier to cook evenly and it turns out delicious!
11. Stand Mixer
I’m in LOVE with my KitchenAid KSM150PSCU Artisan Series 5-Qt. Stand Mixer and I don’t care who knows it!
This kitchen gift idea has a higher price point. But, trust me, you will use it a lot, especially during the holiday season.
Needless to say, it’s a powerful tool to have in any kitchen.
12. Measuring Spoons
Measuring spoons? Boring! But hear me out! These measuring spoons are super clever because they’re shaped to fit inside spice containers! Life changer! There’s even a cute little leveler tool included.
13. Self Watering Indoor Windowsill Herb Garden Pot
If you’re like me, you have full intentions of growing a beautiful herb garden in your kitchen with visions of snipping your fresh herbs as you prepare a glorious salad!
But if you’re also like me, you forget to water your herbs and they don’t last very long.
This self-watering indoor windowsill herb garden pot is a great solution.
14. Indoor Watering Can
This indoor watering can is the perfect complement to your kitchen windowsill. Although you won’t have to water your herbs as often, you’ll still need to refill the water reservoir. This attractive watering can has just the right size spout.
Moms who spend any amount of time in the kitchen spend a lot of time chopping and dicing. Whether it’s onions and veggies for soup or nuts for baking, this chopper is a fantastic way to save time and make your life so much easier!
16. Pot Strainer
Here’s one of those super clever, easy cleanup kitchen gadgets that I will be adding to my wish list! Anything that involves reducing the amount of dishes or bowls I have to wash, the better! This pot strainer easily snaps onto pots and bowls of various sizes!
17. Rectangular Roaster with Rack
This beautiful rectangular roaster with rack is the perfect addition to any mom’s kitchen. Instead of using a cookie sheet or baking dish, use the proper pan to make an incredible roast!
18. Mixing Bowls
Every foodie needs a nice set of mixing bowls in different sizes. This stainless steel bowl set includes airtight lids. Genius! Oftentimes you need to refrigerate part of your ingredients while making the rest of your recipe. So, the lids really come in handy!
19. Stainless Steel Mixing Spoon
And while we’re on the subject of mixing, we moms know how important it is to have a good, sturdy mixing spoon. I personally prefer these stainless steel mixing spoons like my Momma used to use.
You really can’t have too many of these. OXO also offers slotted spoons, large forks, ladles, and turners. They’re all good!
I know, you can’t cook or bake using bud vases, but if you’re gonna be in the kitchen, it needs to be a pleasant, enjoyable environment, right?
Keeping flowers around you will bring you joy! These bud vases are perfect for windowsills and little nooks in the kitchen.
21. Flower Subscription
Go one step further and get her a flower subscription box! Then, even in the winter months she can enjoy a regular delivery of fresh, beautiful, colorful flowers adorning her kitchen!
I mean, who says we have to wait for special occasions to get fresh flower deliveries?
22. Bluetooth Speaker
No, you can’t cook with a bluetooth speaker but darn if ya can’t enjoy yourself more while you’re doing the cooking!
My personal favorite music to listen to while cooking is Nora Jones and other smooth jazz musicians.
Isn’t this adorable retro radio bluetooth speaker a unique gift?
23. Streaming Music
And if you’re already an Amazon Prime member, or want to be, ad-free Amazon music & podcasts are free!

If Mom enjoys a glass of white wine, red wine, or even champagne, this Best Mom Ever wine glass is a perfect gift for her.
A nice reminder of her reasons for working so hard in the kitchen!
25. Wine Rack
This one is pretty self-explanatory. Whether the moms in your life enjoy their wine or they like to have a few bottles on hand for guests, you can’t go wrong with having a nice wine rack.
26. Air Fryer
If you don’t already have one, there’s no doubt you’ve heard about how great air fryers are!
They’re awesome, especially for frozen foods you want to prepare quickly without heating up your big oven.
27. Air Fryer Cheat Sheet
Can you say HUGE time saver? Instead of needing to Google cooking times every time you use your air fryer, this handy dandy cheat sheet is convenient and right at your disposal.
This is a great gift idea for the air fryer lover!
28. Crisper Tray for Convection Oven
Did you know that IF you already have a convection oven, you can use it as an air fryer?
Just use a crisper tray like this one and you’ll get the same results, minus the extra space an air fryer will take up on your kitchen counter.
29. Special Dinner Plates
This ain’t take-out y’all! I mean, if you’re going to go through the time and work it takes to cook up a delicious meal, by all means, the presentation is like adding the cherry on top! I LOVE these 10.5″ gorgeous ceramic dinner plates just for that reason!

They also come in different color choices.
31. Ceramic Bowls
Complete your new beautiful set with these matching 25 ounce ceramic bowls.
Great for soup, salad, cereal, ice cream, or whatever you use bowls for.
32. Oil Sprayer
This oil sprayer is a great alternative to store-bought cooking spray. You can put your favorite type of oil in it (our fave is olive oil) and spray your baking sheets with it or even spritz your food with it before cooking.
33. Vintage Recipes Cookbook
If you’re like me, you love reminiscing about the good old days! Truly, there’s nothing better than my Momma’s or grandmothers’ cooking. So this Vintage Recipes Cookbook would be a joy to gift to the moms in your life!
34. Personalized Recipe Dish Towel
While we’re on the subject of fondly remembering those days gone by, why not find one of your favorite handwritten recipes from an older relative and have it printed onto a personalized dish towel?
Personalized gifts are the most meaningful, best gifts!
35. DIY Framed Family Recipe
Here’s a simple HGTV tutorial for framing an old, favorite family recipe to hang in your kitchen.
Just find a vintage frame. Then cut a piece of your favorite decorative paper into the size of the frame’s glass. After that, use a glue stick to glue your recipe onto the center of the decorative paper. Then frame it!
This is one of those thoughtful gifts that your gift recipient will thoroughly appreciate.
As a matter of fact, this is one of the best kitchen gifts for mom on this list!
36. Amazon Gift Cards
I know, an Amazon gift card isn’t really a kitchen gift, per se. BUT getting this will allow her to pick out her own favorite kitchen gift that she’s been wanting!
And, what a great way to show her that she’s appreciated by getting the ‘We Appreciate You!’ card?
37. Bamboo Cheese Board & Knife Set
Last on my best kitchen gifts for mom list, but certainly not least, is this super popular cheese board & knife set.
Charcuterie is all the rage now, or as my husband calls it, fancy Lunchables.
Whatever you call it, it’s a really nice little set for entertaining!
Lastly, whatever kitchen gift you decide to get mom, make sure she doesn’t already have it!
Obviously, you want it to be the right gift, but not something she already has in her kitchen.
Hence, a good reason to do a quick inventory.
