3 pink chef's knives

19 must-have cookware gifts for Mother’s Day

From an ice cream maker to colourful chef's knives, we've picked the best for mom.

Mom may say that “she doesn’t need anything” for Mother’s Day, but we know that’s not true. If your mom has been hinting about wanting a cast-iron Dutch oven, talking openly about buying a new blender that can make smoothies (without frozen lumps!) or is coveting that set of chef’s knives at her friend’s house, you’ll find the best gifts for her here! We’ve even made sure that these cookware finds are the newest and greatest – whether it’s a budget air fryer or Le Creuset’s new “shallot” colour.
