Mother’s Day is right around the corner, and getting her that perfect, thoughtful, and loving gift is sometimes a task harder than it should be. Since our bank accounts don’t allow us to gift her that mansion on a paradisiac beach she deserves, here is a list with smaller, but super adorable and thoughtful gifts that she would love to get on her day.

“All that I am, or hope to be, I owe to my angel mother.” —Abraham Lincoln

1. An adorable (and truthful!) bamboo cutting board to show her you love everything she cooks.

A kitchen gift is always a good idea, even better when it’s personalized for her. Since this cutting board is made of bamboo, it has many benefits:

  • It’s stronger than hardwood
  • It’s easier on kitchen knives
  • It’s more sustainably harvested
  • It’s pre-oiled for lasting durability

And of course, the laser-engraved message makes it perfect for Mother’s Day.
