They say the way to a man's heart is through his stomach— but seriously, it's 2016 and gender stereotypes are stupid. So I say the way to anyone's heart is through their stomach, because I've known my fair share of ladies (myself included) who like their snacks as much as any man out there. And with Mother's Day coming up, it might be time to switch out the typical flower and cards for something a little bit more... filling. Edible Mother's Day gifts are as thoughtful as they are delicious and whipping up a little something for your mom, a mama friend, or heck, even for yourself this Mother's Day will make it a day to remember.
While there are only so many different types of bouquets or cheesy Hallmark cards for Mother's Day, the possibilities are limitless when it comes to edible gifts. You can cook up something savory, make a batch of your favorite cookies, throw some sauce in a mason jar, you name it. Mother's Day is all about giving gifts that moms will appreciate and really, what's better than getting free food that you didn't have to make?
So this Mother's Day, steer clear of the over-used cards and flowers and give your mom, your friends or any mama figures in your life what she's really wanting.
