If your mother is more Louboutin than Jimmy Choo, then how about a treat from the French countryside with these boozy Prunes steeped in Armangac
The prunes, sugar and French brandy--that's pretty much all it
takes!--end up making a delectable syrup that is perfect drizzled over
vanilla ice cream. Or you can be oh-so-sophisticated and suggest pairing
the prunes with creme fraiche or goat cheese instead. Ooh lala, maman.
Moms who prefer getting their buzz from coffee will love getting a personalized coffee blend

folks at Martha Stewart have got great tips, perfect combinations and
even a free, downloadable coffee sticker template to get you started.
your mama is more about the cake than the coffee, give her a pretty
mason jar filled with a homemade baking mix. It's as easy as layering
pre-measured ingredients in a jar. Then, all mama has to do when she's
craving a freshly baked treat is mix in the wet ingredients. I'm
holding out for this Cherry Oat Scone Mix

from Garden Kitchen Home and Spread the Love labels
from Scarlett at Beautiful Inside My Head.
of what makes a homemade gift so special is how personal it is. If
your mom is more about down-home and spicy than upscale and chocolatey, I
love this genius Taco Box
found at The Kitchn. Sara Kate thinks that it makes a great gift for a
new mom just home with her baby. I think it's just as good for moms
who've been working the gig for years.
Jan at Family Bites had a similar idea to the Taco Kit with her DIY Ice Cream Sundae Kit
Make a list of mom's favorite toppings and start putting together
ingredients. It's a great little box to bring along if you're packing up
a Mother's Day picnic
Good food, made with love, wrapped up all lovely. I'll go Choo-less forever. (Or, um, just buy my fancy shoes myself.) -Stacie
