This feature is part of The Kitchn’s Gift Edit, our editor-curated collection of gift ideas for every occasion. Need more inspiration? Check out all our guides.
There was a time when receiving a cookbook for Mother’s Day may have been as “exciting” as receiving a vacuum — useful, sure, but a bit lacking in glamour. But, with today’s gorgeous options, receiving a cookbook is an invitation to dive into something creative and inspired. A good cookbook can also be a practical tool to take care of dinner even when you’re not feeling totally up to the task. And, if your mom is already an enthusiastic cook, then a beautiful new volume will only encourage and enliven her time in the kitchen.
Of course, there is no one way to be a mother and there are many stages of motherhood, from the all-consuming days of infancy to watching your children grow up and live lives of their own. We chose cookbooks that try to represent this range, and hopefully, one of these titles will match up well with the mother in your life, bringing her and everyone she cooks for the joyful contentment of a belly well fed.
