Even if she seems to already have everything she needs for cooking and baking, you can still find a handy gadget or new appliance for mom. If she doesn’t have much storage space, consider a smaller gift such as a serving bowl or storage containers. If she has a bit more room, you might want to surprise her with a sturdy new pan or an automatic espresso machine that produces delicious drinks with the touch of a button.
