Meats and Cheeses and Crackers, Oh My!

If your mom loves to host and entertain in her beautiful Reunion home, consider gifting her a personalized charcuterie kit. Purchase a handmade wood charcuterie board from a local artisan before gathering cheeses, cured meats, crackers, and other delicious toppings to create a thoughtful and unique gift. If she’s a culinary aesthetic type, she might even love assembling a board herself to show off at her next gathering or to enjoy as a tasty snack with her family. No matter which direction you choose to go, you’ll have a mom with a full stomach and fuller heart.

For the outdoorsy mom who relishes spending time in stunning Colorado nature, getting her some camping gear is a perfect way to show her how much you care. Buying her new s’mores sticks, a set of mountain pie makers, or a LifeStraw Personal Water Filter will help her take her next camping trip to another level. These thoughtful gifts — and our summer camping tips — will make her time in the great outdoors even more enjoyable and memorable, especially since she’ll have a memento of your love to bring along.

Top Chef: Mother’s Day

For the mom who loves to chef away in her gorgeous Reunion kitchen, a Le Creuset Dutch oven is a must-have kitchen tool. These high-quality pots are perfect for cooking everything from stews and soups to roasts and casseroles. No need to have style worries: They come in a variety of lovely colors to match your mom’s kitchen decor. Whether she’s making a delicious family dinner or going all-out to whip up a feast for a neighborhood party, she’s sure to love cooking up a storm with her new Dutch oven and will appreciate the durability and quality of this timeless culinary essential.

Fun with Fungi

Does your mom have a green thumb or is she interested in growing her own food? Even if she simply loves umami flavors, try getting her a Back to the Roots Organic Mushroom Growing Kit. This fun and easy-to-use project will allow your mom to grow her own gourmet mushrooms right in her own kitchen. Not only is this a unique and fun gift, but it’s also a sustainable way for your mom to enjoy fresh, organic produce from home. She’ll have a blast watching the fungi sprout before her eyes — and even more fun tossing her very own mushrooms into salads, pastas, and more.
