Looking for a gift for the mom in your life? Maybe it’s YOUR mom, or maybe your wife or your sister? I’ve got you covered. If your mom loves cooking, or just wants cooking to be a little easier, here are some useful kitchen gifts that any mom will love! These gifts will be a hit whether it’s for Mother’s Day, her birthday, Christmas, or just out of the blue to say, “love ya, mom!”.
I don’t always love kitchen gadgets, but a lot of people do. My mom likes kitchen gadgets, but only if they’re useful. Which makes sense. Who wants a drawer full of stuff you’ll never use? And who wants to spend a ton of money on a gift that will just sit in a drawer…never being used? Umm…no one.
Here’s a list of 20 kitchen gifts that your mom will love (and actually use). And they’re all under $25. You’ll find gadget gifts and NON gadget gifts below. Click through to see more details and decide if it’s a winner.

Gadgets Under $25 for Your mom
For the moms who love to cook, here are some gadget gifts to make cooking easier (and more fun too).
This avocado slicer and pitter makes getting the big pit out of the middle of the avocado a breeze. Give this to your avocado loving mom for a gift she’ll surely love!
For everyone who knows how delicious fresh herbs are in and on your food. These herb scissors make chopping fresh herbs a breeze. No cutting board required!
I asked my mom what her favorite kitchen gadget is. And she said her handheld zester. We have one too, and I agree that it’s awesome. You can use this for ginger, chocolate, lime zest, garlic, and so much more.
You know the papery garlic outer layer? Use this funny looking thing to take it off easily. Just stick the clove inside and rub it together between your hands. It works, we have one!
Cooking with fresh garlic just got easier with this garlic press. No more smashing garlic on a cutting board and having the clove fall on the floor. It’s just what your mom is looking for.
Save mom the hassle and give her these jar grippers!
Make slicing apples SO much easier with this handy kitchen gadget. This corer gives 16 thin slices per apple, but there’s also a style that gives 8 thicker slices.
These glass containers would work great for storing food. I love how they look, and your mom will too! Leave them out on the counter as decoration or store them away. It’s her choice!
We have one of these juicers that sits on top of the mason jar and it really takes the mess out of juicing citrus.
Okay. I haven’t tried this hard boiled egg peeler. But if it works like it’s supposed to, it’s a game changer!
These bamboo salad hands provide a fun shift from the usual salad tongs.
This herb stripping tool is pretty great. We got one as a gift and it works great for stripping herbs from their stems. Works for kale, too!
Have you ever tried to use tongs that don’t have much spring in them? Or that aren’t the right size? It’s a challenge. A good pair of tongs, like these, will save mom from a lot of frustration (and you if you’re cooking dinner at her house).
Take a look at this! It’s the best looking scrub brush I’ve ever seen. I’d love to have this sitting on my sink! What do you think? Would your mom like it?
Non-Gadget Kitchen Gifts for mom Under $25
Maybe your mom has all the gadgets anyone could ever want (or need). Here are some non-gadget gifts that would mean a lot for a mom who spends any amount of time in the kitchen!
Your mom will think of you every time she reaches for her water…and then again when she puts it back down on these coasters.
Picture this…your mom is in the kitchen, thinking…where did I put the recipe for that delicious soup that ______ (fill in your name here) made me? OH! That’s right, it’s on my towel. I love this idea.
Everybody needs new pot holders every now and then. These are a new style that I really like!
Here’s a great gift…the gift of organization. Want to give more than just these pantry labels? Offer to do the organizing, too!
Does your mom need inspiration? Encouragement? A good laugh? Personalize this mug however you think she’d like it most!
Help your mom go plastic free by giving her this reusable food wrap (made with beeswax).

Kitchen Themed Gift Basket
If one of these gifts doesn’t quite seem like enough for all those years your mom loved and cared for you, consider buying a few of them and creating a gift basket with a kitchen gift theme. You could use a wire basket (that can be re-used in the kitchen) or a new stock pot as the holder.
Maybe you’ve decided it’s a good year to splurge on a kitchen gift for mom. If that’s the case, check out this list of dream kitchen tools!
No matter what you decide, keep your mom in mind when picking out your gift. Because remember, it’s the thought that counts!
