Best Wine: Hickory Farms Mumm Napa Sparkling Wine Gift Box

hickory-farms-mumm-napa-wine-gift-box
What We Like
  • Sparkling wine with a great range of savory and sweet snacks to pair

What We Don't Like
  • Only ships to select locations

A basket featuring Mom's favorite wine would certainly make a wonderful gift, and on a day meant for celebrating, it’s hard to do better than a great bottle of bubbly. The Mumm Napa Sparkling Wine Gift Box features a bottle of Mumm Napa Cuvée M made in traditional fashion (the same way as Champagne) with a bit of sweetness. The included accompanying snacks are a mix of sweet and savory items: a smoked gouda blend, butter toffee pretzels, three cheese sourdough crackers, truffles, and a nut and fruit mix.

Best Chocolate: Mouth The Chocolate Fix Gift Box

The Chocolate Fix
What We Like
  • Many small-batch treat options

  • Ranges from true dessert territory to healthy-ish snacks

What We Don't Like
  • If you’re looking for something 100 percent decadent, this isn’t it

This scrumptious assortment is perfect for a chocoholic. The curation features a great range of products—some decadent, some on the healthier side—including a Mexican chocolate energy bar by Bearded Brothers, chocolate sea salt almond butter by Big Spoon Roasters, a brownie made by Greyston Bakery Inc., double chocolate marshmallow cookies by Malvi Marshmallow Confections, chocolate sables made by Mouth, Madagascar Sambirano single origin chocolate by Woodblock, and chocolate caramels by McCreas Candies.

Best Budget: Edible Arrangements Bakeshop Bouquet Bundle

edible-arrangements-bakeshop-bouquet
What We Like
  • Simple and sweet

  • Inexpensive

What We Don't Like
  • The fruit needs to be enjoyed immediately

If you’re looking to treat Mom on a budget, the Edible Bakeshop Bouquet Bundle at Edible Arrangements is the way to go. Ripe, juicy melon, strawberries, grapes, and a pineapple daisy are arranged artfully in a sweet little vase. Plus, it comes with a baked good: your choice of a brownie or chocolate strawberry cheesecake.

The only issue with this one is that, because the fruit is shipped at its peak, it really should be enjoyed immediately (or within 24 hours at the very latest). That said, Mom will almost certainly love this wallet-friendly option.

Best Coffee: Goldbelly Eli Zabar Gift Basket

What We Like
  • House-roasted coffee

  • Great mix of sweet and savory snacks

What We Don't Like
  • Just one bag of coffee?

Let’s be real—coffee is great, but without some noshes to pair, it’s not nearly as fun. Part of the appeal of coffee is all the food that goes so beautifully with it. Zabar’s, the New York City gourmet emporium, knows this. It's coffee basket from Goldbelly highlights a great bag of house-roasted coffee and a solid assortment of snacks, including parmesan crisps, raisin nut crisps, house-made chocolate babka, original granola, a MetroCard cookie, raspberry jam, and a branded tea towel. We love that there's a good mix of sweet and savory options, and that everything is so tied to New York City. It’s like you took Mom on a fancy coffee date in Manhattan.

Best Beer: Gourmet Gift Baskets Around The World Beer Bucket

What We Like
  • Plenty to drink

  • Plenty to eat

What We Don't Like
  • The snack selection feels a little dive bar-y

  • Only one of each beer, which makes it hard to share if you want to taste everything

If your mom is a lady who enjoys a craft brew, hook her up with the Around The World Beer Bucket from Gourmet Gift Baskets. It comes with 12 beers from all across the globe, including Bavik Pilsner (Belgium), Moretti Lager (Italy), and Dos Equis XX (Mexico). Mom will also receive some classic beer snacks, such as handcrafted popcorn, crunchy snack mix, beef jerky, beef garlic sausage, and more—a scrumptious spread for a casual evening at home.

Best Brunch: Harry & David Waffle Brunch Gift Box

What We Like
  • Bountiful, flavorful selection

  • Includes coffee

What We Don't Like
  • Way too much food for one to two people

  • Nothing for those who prefer savory brunch

For many, it’s not Mother’s Day without a beautiful brunch spread. If the midday meal is part of your tradition, why not surprise Mom with something a little extra? The Waffle Brunch Gift Box from Harry & David is an absolute feast shipped right to her door. It includes a total of eight Belgian waffles (two vanilla, two chocolate, two cinnamon, and two maple), pastries, preserves, maple syrup, and coffee. Hopefully, Mom doesn’t mind leftovers, because this box is bountiful.

Best Healthy: Mouth Wellness in a Box

What We Like
  • Everything is small-batch and filled with personality

  • Covers the snack bases

What We Don't Like
  • Not quite as bountiful as some of the other options

  • On the pricier side, given its size

For some real self-care vibes, we love Wellness in a Box from Mouth. It comes with an assortment of healthy treats, from cashew and coconut granola to pineapple mojito dried fruit to a bee pollen shaker to snow honey. There’s even a turmeric elixir and candle. If Mom keeps up with wellness trends and enjoys a small-batch snack, she'll absolutely adore this assortment.

Best for the Foodie: iGourmet The Foodie Gift Basket

igourmet-the-foodie-gift-basket
What We Like
  • Full of delicious, elegant snacks

  • Something for everyone

What We Don't Like
  • One of the pricier options

  • A lot of food if Mom doesn’t have a large household

If Mom is the type who knows the name of every kind of cheese or has a finishing olive oil and a cooking olive oil, The Foodie Gift Basket at iGourmet is a great choice for her. It's loaded with mostly European or European-inspired treats, including Camembert, a sheep’s milk truffle cheese from Italy, English biscuits, salami Barolo, and olive tapenade. It also features Italian espresso, organic olive oil, mini toasts, and three-year Parmigiano-Reggiano.

Final Verdict

If you’re really looking to treat Mom, it’s hard to beat The Foodie Gift Basket (view at iGourmet). If she’s a brunch lover, the Waffle Brunch Gift Box (view at Harry & David) is great, too, but if you’re working with a limited budget, go for the adorable Edible Bakeshop Bouquet Bundle (view at Edible Arrangements).
