When you’re shopping for Mom for Mother’s Day this year, pick out something that not only does she not have, but something she may not even know exists. The best kitchen gadgets bring appeal to the room and are both useful and fun. People who love to cook and bake are always looking for that new toy to bring more to their kitchen experience.
Wonder Heart Waffle Maker
Does your mom have a big heart? She’ll appreciate the love that goes into choosing the Wonder Heart Waffle Maker. Set it up for her beside online flowers from FTD.com for a double “awww” moment. Plus, she’ll get to show a little love herself every time she makes these fun heart-shaped waffles. The non-stick baking plates make three waffles at a time and are simple to clean. For people who aren’t prone to sentiment, heart-shaped waffles may seem a little contrived, but mushy Moms will love this product. It’s available for $24 on the C Wonder website.
Takeya Fruit-Infused Water Maker
If Mom is looking to drink more healthy beverages, fruit-infused water can help her stay hydrated while also enjoying natural fruit flavor. The Takeya Fruit-Infused Water Maker features an airtight lid that seals in flavor. Its modern, stylish design makes it an attractive piece for the table. To create the fruit-infused water, add chopped fresh fruit and let it infuse for at least three hours or overnight. The water maker is durable, made of high-temperature acrylic and is available on the company website and online retailers, including Amazon.
Schiuma Milk Frother
If your mom loves spending time in coffee shops, the Schiuma Milk Frother can give her a coffee-shop feeling at home by adding freshly frothed milk to her favorite coffee beverages. It’s simple to operate: just dip into milk, push the power button and froth until the foam reaches desired thickness. It works with both hot and cold milk and is available on Schiuma’s website and at leading retailers. Five color choices make the Schiuma Milk Frother fit in well with most kitchens. You can buy it in black, silver, red, purple and lime green. The frother retails for $15.
Pandigital 15″ Kitchen Technology Center
If you’re looking to spend more money on Mom for Mother’s Day, a tech-savvy mom will find myriad uses for the Pandigital 15″ Kitchen Technology Center. The KTC packs the features of several devices into one, featuring an HDTV receiver, electronic recipe collection and digital photo storage, along with an Internet connectivity. It has a 15.6-inch HD screen and comes with three faceplates to choose from to match the colors of your Mom’s kitchen. Up to 2,400 digital images can be stored and displayed as single images or slide shows. This is a good choice for the Mom who enjoys working in the kitchen but likes to wander in and out to go on the Internet or watch TV. Pandigital products are available at leading online and offline retailers for about $299.
Hutzler Banana Slicer
Does your mom have a good sense of humor? She may appreciate the Hutzler Banana Slicer, a plastic banana-shaped cutter that slices a whole banana with one push. This product has sparked thousands of joke reviews on Amazon.com, where the slicer has become a cult favorite among reviewers. It may be a little silly since it’s pretty easy to cut up a banana with a knife, but it’s a fun conversation piece, and it does what it says it does: cut a banana. Plus, it’s cheap: $3.59 on Amazon.
Whatever you buy your mother, she’ll probably love it, because it’s from you.
