    Get it from Amazon for $39.99.

    4. A KitchenAid, because your opinions might not ~mix~ very often, but your mutual love of standing mixers (and the tasty treats you make with them) will connect you and your mom forever.


    This includes a flat beater, dough hook, and wire whip. But this isn't just for baking! You can also grab a meat tenderizer, spiralizer, or a pasta press to make dinner and dessert with the same dang appliance! It's no wonder this thing has over 7,000 five-star reviews.

    6. A sushi making kit to help you make sushi so perfect your mom will think something ~fishy~ is going on... where's that takeout box?


    This kit comes with a training frame, non-stick paddle, and a roll cutter.

    Promising review: "Last night was my very first time making sushi and this kit worked flawlessly! It really makes the whole process easy. The frame makes it so easy to get the edges straight and the rice evenly packed along the roll. Even though my first roll was pretty perfect, they just got better and better as I played with the amount of rice and filling. The rice spoon is amazing! Everything in my house was sticking to the rice EXCEPT this spoon! Anywhooo, I highly recommend this set if you want a nice clean way to make sushi rolls." —The One And Only Seadog

    Get it from Amazon for $19.95.

    7. A silicone pastry mat that doubles as a baking liner, so you can make perfectly sized pastries that'll almost ~measure up~ to your mom's perfect desserts.


    Get it from Amazon for $10.01.

    8. An onion chopper for chopping onions so efficiently they won't even have time to make you tear up, but your mom might tear up over how efficiently you now cook.


    This chopper has over 3,000 five-star reviews!

    Promising review: "I HATE chopping onions. My eyes always tear up and it's painful. I've tried chewing gum and running water and all the old wives' tales, but nothing really worked. Until this. It's got a solid base and it lets you dice veggies with ease. It's great for kids to help in the kitchen, or maybe those with arthritis who can't chop as well with a chef's knife. It's easy to clean (just throw it in the dishwasher) and it comes with two different sizes of choppers. I was pleasantly surprised." —Teri Carrigan

    Get it from Amazon for $22.97.

    9. A cookbook from The Great British Baking Show your mom is gonna love to see in your kitchen (Mary) ~Berry~ much.


    Promising review: "I got this as a gift for a fan of The Great British Baking Show and she loved it! She made a roll cake from this book and there were no cracks! HUGE win." —Sam

    Get it from Amazon for $32.80.

    10. A set of 30 produce bags that'll keep your produce as fresh as your mother's groovy slang... well, maybe fresher than that.


    Promising review: "It's totally unbelievable that these truly lengthen the life of our produce!! Someone gave these to us as a gift and we wash them and keep using them, but I also got more and couldn't be happier." —Arc & Ro

    Get them from Amazon for $8.99.

    11. A butter cutter to help you put the perfect pad of butter on your mom's toast (making up for the fact that the only thing you might know how to prepare for your mom is toast).


    Promising review: "I am so happy I bought this! I cook with a lot of butter and a lot of times when I need to grab butter my hands will be full or at least one of them is dirty from handling food. With this I can quickly reach in the fridge and click out as many butter slices as I need. It doesn't take much effort at all." —John H

    Get it from Amazon for $14.86+ (available in five colors).

    12. A meat tenderizer, because your mom has been trying to ~pound~ this tip into your memory forever — tenderized meat cooks, and tastes, better! Seriously, use this thing and your meaty main course is sure to be a ~hit~!


    Get it from Amazon for $12.99+ (available in two colors).

    13. An all-in-one pineapple tool that'll remove the stem, core, peel, and slice your tasty fruit so well you'll be the (pine) apple of your mother's eye every time you make her a fruit salad.


    This has over 2,000 five-star reviews!

    Promising review: "This thing is amazing. It works great! I certainly prefer buying whole pineapples instead of the marked up pre-cut stuff. However, it used to take me 20 minutes to go through the whole process of cutting off all the inedible bits, even after watching multiple youtube videos on what was the 'best' way. I can now be completely done with the process in less than two minutes. Cut off the top, drill, and extract. That's it!" —CS

    Get it from Amazon for $6.90.

    14. A pack of 12 reusable silicone baking cups for earth-conscious bakers whose moms will think saving paper is as sweet as the cupcakes themselves.


    Promising review: "These are so nice to have around because they have many other uses! I use them when I need something to be holding small amounts of ingredients when preparing a recipe, melting a bit of butter, using as a condiment cup, holding an egg white, or even microwaving an egg for a quick breakfast sandwich. They bake well, the food I prepare in them comes out browned evenly and nicely cooked. They also release easily after cooling for the appropriate amount of time." —Tlo, Mom of 2 boys

    Get them from Amazon for $7.99.

    15. A Ninja blender so you can smooth-ie things over with your mom when times get tough.


    This product has over 2,500 five-star reviews! It's also one of the top rated blenders in BuzzFeed reviews!

    Promising review: "This review is really going to be simple. It works great and we love it! We like the individual cups much more than we thought we would. We make smoothies in them all the time and the clean up is really simple. When we want to make something up in the bigger pitcher, it's a breeze as well. Both the cups and the pitcher clean up easily. The power behind both of these is better than any other blender we have ever had. This was a really good purchase and we recommend it to everyone looking at them." —GatorMan

    Get it from Amazon for $99.98.

    16. A pair of paw shredder claws that'll make a meal so good your mom will hardly be able to ~bear~ it.


    Get them from Amazon for $12.95 (available in six colors).

    17. A stainless steel soap to keep your skin from smelling like garlic after cooking, which your mom will think is the sweet smell of successful parenting.


    Promising review: "I was at my son's home and noticed this on the sink and had to know all about it. My daughter-in-law told me it really works getting smells off your hands, so I had to have one. I'm glad I bought one. I handle onions often and it takes the smell off fast. The other day my fiancé came in the house and you could smell gasoline. He said he spilled some on his hands so I told him to use this bar. It took the gas smell off his hands! It is a great little tool to have around." —YorkieMom315

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99.

    18. A silicone cake mold you can use when you want to ~shell out~ something especially sweet for your favorite beach buddy.


    Because parenting you was no day at the beach... until now.

    Promising review: "I made small sugar sea shells to decorate a cake my mom made. I thought for sure I would have some broken shells or they wouldn't come out looking good, but every batch was perfect! Definitely get this if you need small seashells!!" —KaiT C

    Get it from Amazon for $5.59 (available in three styles).

    19. A fruit hammock that hangs from your kitchen cabinets, because having cluttered counters is gonna drive you (and your mom) bananas.


    Get it from Amazon for $12.95.

    20. A food prep bowl with three grating plates for when you need a ~grate~ way to prep dinner for your family without making a mess.


    You can get fine or coarsely grated food with the first two grading plates and the third will give you perfectly sliced pieces of food every time. The unique lid allows you to seal and store food you've prepped in the dishwasher-safe bowl and has a center piece that pops off for easy, mess-free shredding.

    Get it from BuzzFeed's Goodful line, exclusively at Macy's for $42.99.

    21. A high-tech juicer that will make your mom happy knowing that at least you chase down shots of vodka with a healthy shot of wheatgrass on occasion.


    This multitasking juicer is not messing around when it comes to your health! It uses a low speed juicing process to keep the enzymes and vitamins in the ingredients you use. And it's not only good for a cup of OJ, this can turn nuts into nut butter, extrude pasta, grind coffee and spices, mince herbs and garlic, make baby food, salsa, frozen desserts, and make soy milk from scratch. So it should be no surprise that this has over 2,500 five-star reviews.

    Promising review: "This thing is amazing! I've had it for a couple of weeks now and have used it every day. My kids even help make their daily morning juice. They love it. My husband and I start our day with straight organic celery juice every morning; and I've made myself some green juices as well. I love this machine! It was a splurge for me financially, but after doing a lot of research about the best kind of juicer I went for it. And I'm glad I did. I hope it stands up to time and keeps working as beautifully for years to come. Highly recommended." —TS

    Get it from Amazon for $252.64+ (available in two styles).

    22. A brown sugar softener that'll make your mom say, "Good job keeping your ingredients fresh, ~Sugar~."


    Get it from Amazon for $5.49 (available in four shapes).

    23. A veggie spiralizer to impress your mom with a "pasta" dish that has a real ~twist~.


    Promising review: "I am enthusiastically writing a review for this product. Why? Because this product has, with little expense, helped reduce my number one craving for my favorite simple carb, PASTA. Who knew I liked zucchini so much? This is a simple, well constructed product that does what it was made for. When I prepare a zucchini or squash, I only need to trim the very tip off the end. I leave the stem on unless its very long because the stem provides a sturdy place for the end cap. There is very minimal waste this way." —JLA

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    24. A self-cleaning whisk to ~wipe~ away any worries you have about getting sauce or frosting on the counters. The only problem is that your mom is gonna ~whisk~ she had one too!


    Get it from Amazon for $23.99 (available in seven colors).

    25. A garlic press that'll make cooking such a breeze, your mom'll want to gar-lick her plate clean.


    Get it from Amazon for $12.99.

    26. A digital scale for when you want to ~weigh-in~ on the best ways to upgrade your secret family recipes.


    Get it from BuzzFeed's Goodful line, exclusively at Macy's for $35.99.

    27. A drawer organizer you can customize to the tune of your mother's A-type personality — keeping an organized kitchen is something you're glad your parents taught you.


    This set includes a base mat and 16 separators you can adjust and divide any way you want.

    Get it from Amazon for $34.78+ (available in four colors).

    28. A cookie press, because your mom taught you good baking tools are always gonna be worth the ~dough~ it takes to get them.


    This press also includes a storage case with 12 stainless steel disks: a daisy, flower, sunflower, fleur-de-lis, butterfly, bear, shell, leaf, heart, snowflake, tree, and a wreath.

    Get it from Amazon for $29.95.

    29. A two-piece grip and splatter lid set that'll keep your hands from getting burned — your mom'll love knowing you keep a rubber cover around to practice safe... sautéing.


    Get them from BuzzFeed's Goodful line, exclusively at Macy's for $28.99.

    30. A matte black butter bell that'll be a great gift to get yourself, and your mom, this holiday season. Because everyone knows you two are ~butter~ together.


    This gadget keeps butter fresh and spreadable for up to 30 days. I love my own butter bell so much I wrote a review about how I can't eat bread without it anymore.

    Get it from Amazon for $24.95 (available in 10 colors).

    31. And finally, a three-piece nylon knife set so you can teach your own kids the same skills your mother taught you.


    The design of these knives makes them super useful for young chefs — they can cut through many fruits and vegetables easily, but won't cut skin at all. TBH, I probably need these for myself.

    Get them from Amazon for $8.95.

    When your mom sees these in your kitchen.
