For the mom plotting her culinary pilgrimage to Spain
Mama always said it’s the thought that counts. So as you’re stressing over what to get her this Mother’s Day—especially if she didn’t pass along her Martha Stewart-like knack for homemade crafts—take a few breaths. Whether you opt for a useful new chef knife or an indulgent bagel spread for six, she’s going to love what you pick out. And if she doesn’t, well, at least you can order a lot mimosas at brunch. Here are nine Mother's Day gifts nearly every mom can get behind.
Take a hint and buy her something that’ll remind her of the Andalusian countryside like this cold pressed olive oil duo from La Tienda. Its producers Castillo De Canena make small batches of olive oil from a picturesque 16th-century castle in the foothills of the Sierra Mágina. (Cool story, right?!) This oil is from the orchard’s first day of pressing, which is delicate and more aromatic (they say it tastes like artichokes and rosemary) than other varieties. It’ll pair nicely with that tortilla española you’ve been meaning to make for her.
