20 Unique Edible Gifts to Make for Mother’s Day

For those who aren’t very creative, there’s always the big box of chocolates, a cake with her name spelled out in icing, a dozen fancy cupcakes, or some gourmet jelly beans. This year, instead of simply buying the usual things for Mom on her special day, create personally-prepared and unique edible gifts. This bit of loving effort to help Mom enjoy her special day could show her more effectively how much you appreciate her lifetime of helping you.

Preserved fruits

If you prefer to prepare sweet preserves for your Mom, instead of vegetables, fill the gift jars with strawberries, raspberries, oranges, or other fruits. Of course, your labels would have to be something like Sweets for the Sweetest Mom in the World.

You can create some wonderful edible gifts for Mom or Grandma. She may not only enjoy eating your preserves, but feel some nostalgia as she remembers the long-ago days when her Mom created her own preserves.

Homemade pickles

Get pickling jars and complete instructions on how to prepare old-fashioned preserves. Choose fresh cucumbers, green tomatoes, squash, cauliflower, miniature corn, or other vegetables—print special labels with some original names—for example, Perfect Pickles for My Perfect Mom

Home-frozen homemade dinners

Whether your Mom is a busy career woman or retiree, she’d appreciate a week’s worth of frozen dinners. It won’t be those tasteless 99-cent specials from the supermarket, but high-quality homemade foods she can quickly prepare at the end of a busy day.

Buy frozen dinner containers, and make your Mom seven tasty meals, each containing totally fresh ingredients. If you don’t already know, find out her favorites in meats, poultry, seafood, and vegetables. Keep your Mom’s health needs in mind with your use of salt, spices, and other considerations. Cook them, place in individual dinner servings in the containers, and flash freeze them.

Put all seven meals together into a gift box, wrap them together in fancy paper and ribbons, and deliver to your Mom on her special day. Place them immediately in her freezer, so she can use the meals whenever she desires. For the gift card or label, you can come up with an appropriate message, such as A Week of Homemade Frozen Dinners for My Warmly Delightful Mom.      

Of course, you can make other creative homemade Mother’s Day edible gifts, including seasoning mixes, truffles, scones, cakes, cookies, pies, and candies. You will find below a list of 20 delicious edible gifts to make your mom for Mother’s Day!
