My mom loves dessert. Honestly, I think every mom loves that sweet indulgence, that moment of deliciousness.
Sometimes, it’s only a moment.
Then, the kids sniff out the sugar, find mom hiding in the closet, and start asking for a treat, a hug, a missing toy … you know how it goes.
So when you’re thinking of mom’s Mother’s Day gift this year, think of gifting her something amazing, some really tasty treat that makes her moment of indulgence that much more enjoyable.

Sugar Plum’s Smash Heart
Oh my gosh. Sugar Plum’s Smart Heart is delicious. My mom modeled it, smashed it, and then (just like a good mom) shared it with her loving daughter. It’s so good.
The 1-pound chocolate heart is filled with pretzels, cookies, and potato chips, then topped with a chocolate drizzle and chocolate-coated candies. It sounds like a lot, but it’s the perfect balance.
Smash treats are really popular right now. And although it does come with a mallet, this Smash Heart doesn’t really shatter lie the smash treats on TikTok. It took my dad a lot of perseverance, and a lot of flying chocolate-coated candies, to actually get part of it to crack in the way you’d think according to the name.
But luckily, Sugar Plum’s Smash Heart is really soft and pieces of this delicious chocolate treat break off easily.
We all loved it. Even Pete, who is not really into sweets. So we will definitely be ordering these for future holidays and celebrations.
Old Salt Coffee
We drink a lot of coffee. I think most people drink a lot of coffee. Especially moms. Do moms try to drink a hot cup of coffee every morning? Yes. Do they get to? No. Usually it’s cold because someone needs breakfast, someone needs to find their shoe, someone is late and missing the bus.
So a coffee that tastes good hot and cold is a must.
My favorite cup of coffee I’ve ever had at home: Old Salt Coffee’s Silent Service.
It makes such a satisfying cup of coffee. A pinch of sugar added to it puts it on par with really expensive specialty coffees I’ve had.
And sure, maybe a bag of ground coffee doesn’t feel like an adequate Mother’s Day gift. And maybe a drinkable gift doesn’t count as an edible gift. But it is and it does. And if you need to make this feel more “gifty,” for mom, pick up one of these Funny Coffee Mugs too.
Funky Chunky’s Supreme Box
If mom has a hard time choosing between salty and sweet, Funky Chunky’s Supreme Box is the way to go. The box is filled a variety of chocolate covered salty snacks, all of which are guaranteed to please your mom.
The box comes with five different treats: Sea Salt Caramel Popcorn, Nutty Choco Pop, Peanut Butter Cup, Chip Zel Pop, and Chocolate Pretzel. Three of the five items come in really nice hard plastic containers, which make them really portable. The containers are also really quiet, so mom can sneak into the kitchen and eat some without drawing a crowd.
Of the five, our favorite was the Chip Zel Pop. It’s a sweet popcorn, pretzel sticks, and potato chip pieces topped with a chocolate drizzle. Each bite is really sweet and you only need a little to satisfy your sugar craving. Which is good if mom needs to share.
Bacon Ranch Nuts from Vikki’s Nut House
If mom is more into treats with a crunch, she’ll love Vikki’s Nut House. The nuts are roasted in small batches. Very small batches. They’re roasted to order, which guarantees mom is getting something fresh.
There are a ton of varieties of peanuts to choose from at Vikki’s Nut House, but our favorite is the Bacon Ranch Peanuts. The flavoring doesn’t overwhelm the peanuts. Rather, it’s a really good compliment.
If mom has a sweet tooth, the candied Sweet Buffalo Peanuts may be more her style. The candied portion is definitely sweet, with a little heat, and a really nice crunchy shell around the peanut.
Greensbury’s Perfect Surf & Turf
The best gift you can give your mom is your time. It’s really all she wants. Well, your time and some lobster. How about you give her both? With Greensbury Surf & Turf, you can.
Greensbury is an organic meat and seafood delivery service. You can subscribe to boxes that will arrive every four, six, or eight weeks, purchase a la cart, or purchase as a pack. We suggest the latter for mom, and our pack of choice is the Perfect Surf & Turf, which comes with two lobster tails, two ribeye steaks, and an apple pie (so look, you don’t even have to think about dessert … it’s already done).
Everything is shipped frozen on dry ice and in sustainable packaging. What’s really great about it is the items are flash frozen before shipment, so they last a year in the freezer. Not that you’ll wait that long to serve it to mom … but, just in case.
Right now, select mom-approved items are 15% off. And — AND — you can get a free pack of bacon with the code 4MOM. Mom will be so happy with the meal … and so happy that you used a coupon.
Marche de Macaroons
It has been over three years since we went on a trip to Hilton Head Island where we ate Marche de Macaroons. And every time I’ve had a macaroon since, I’ve compared it to those macaroons.
Luckily for you, you don’t have to travel all the way to South Carolina to get some for mom. You can order them online.
My absolute favorite is the Banana Foster, which is nuts because I generally don’t love anything that’s not chocolate or chocolate flavored. But these are banana flavored meringue shells, rimmed in salted caramel buttercream, filled with liquid caramel and a caramel in the center, then topped with banana chips.
These are my gold standard of macaroons, and you can order them for mom in a gold logo box. I don’t think that’s a coincidence.
Sugar Realm Bakery’s Secret Garden Cookies
You will not find a prettier cookie than Sugar Realm Bakery’s Secret Garden Cookies. Trust me.
The trio of cookies is handmade and hand painted. There’s a hummingbird, doorway, and decorated vase filled with flowers. The hand painted moss on the doorway and decorated vase actually looks like moss. We were all incredibly impressed.
Pete didn’t want to touch the cookie and chance breaking it, but they actually are all pretty sturdy. The latter two cookies are about 3- to 5-inches (the bird is about 2-inches). They’re rolled out to 3/8-inch thick, then topped with a handmade milkshake fondant.
Fondant is usually way too sweet and sort of inedible, but not this one. This is sweet, but not overly sweet and actually the perfect balance for the lemon poppyseed cookies (which aren’t very sweet). The fondant melts in your mouth and isn’t hard and chewy like fondant can be.
Brix Chocolate For Wine
If my grandma was still alive, I would definitely be ordering her some Brix Chocolate for Wine for her Mother’s Day gift. I ordered a bunch for her, she ordered a bunch for herself and for gifts, and Brix actually sent her a huge bag once as a treat. To say she was obsessed is an understatement.
You can pair this chocolate wine, as the name implies, or just enjoy it on its own. The bricks it comes in (hence the name) are meant to be cut into pieces, but my grandma would just eat it like a huge 4 oz. chocolate bar. “If you chop it, you’re going to waste the crumbs,” she told me once.
The Brix Chocolate Collection comes with four variants: Extra Dark (70 % Cacao), Medium Dark (60 % Cacao), Smooth Dark (54 % Cacao), and Milk (46 % Cacao). The Smooth Dark was my grandma’s favorite. Your mom will get the chance to try all four and choose her favorite.
Chocolate-Dipped Fruit From Edible Arrangements
I’ve never been disappointed by Edible Arrangements. Every time someone has sent me chocolate-dipped fruit from there, it has been incredible.
Let me tell you a quick fact about me: I’m allergic to certain fruits. I can’t eat pineapple, honeydew, or cantaloupe. And if there’s a fruit bowl that has other fruits but also has that trio, I can’t eat it.
There’s a large fruit smoothie chain that, despite assuring me machines are cleaned between smoothies, gives me allergic reactions from cross contamination. Edible Arrangements never does. Even though each facility does have the fruits I’m allergic to, I’ve never one had any issues.
So go ahead and get mom any chocolate fruit from any brand you like. But if she has any sort of fruit allergy, stick with Edible Arrangements.
I asked my best friend Michelle, who is mentioned on this blog a lot, what edible gift she would like for Mother’s Day. And she said a Spinach Quiche.
That’s one of those foods that’s so good, perfect for a Mother’s Day brunch, and something you don’t think of getting for mom because you’re usually so focused on sweet treats.
