Looking for Mother’s Day gifts? Here are some tasty items that won’t break the bank.
Chuao (chew-WOW) chocolate is one of the leaders in America’s artisan chocolate bars. We’ve been fans for a long time.
Give a gift set of these gourmet chocolate bars for to a chocolate aficionado, or give single bars as small gifts or party favors.
These delicious, creative chocolate bars are sure to please and are made in a broad spectrum of flavors: caramel, floral, fruity, nutty, salty, savory, spicy.
There are more than two dozen flavors in dark, milk and organic chocolate. The chocolatier specializes in artful flavors, including fun options that incorporate popcorn, popping candy and potato chips.

TABASCO calls its new, limited-edition TABASCO Diamond Reserve Sauce the “champagne of pepper sauce.” The premium, small-batch release created by the McIlhenny family celebrates the 150th anniversary of the iconic hot sauce brand.
The bottle is designed in the style of Champagne bottles; the sauce is made from a selection of the finest tabasco peppers on Avery Island, chosen for their superior color, texture and robustness.
These peppers are mashed with a small amount of salt and then aged—some for up to 15 years! They’re then blended with sparkling white wine vinegar.
The resulting pepper sauce has exceptional complexity, while maintaining the signature flavor and vibrancy for which TABASCO Sauce is celebrated around the world.
The six-ounce bottle is priced at $ 34.95. It is available exclusively at TABASCO.com and on Avery Island, Louisiana (the home of TABASCO Sauce).
We have long been fans of Tay Tea, an artisan tea blender near Woodstock, New York.
Instead of a bouquet of roses, consider a gift of Tay Tea Persian Rose Tea, black tea with rose petals.
You can give something as small as a $ 5 packet for a few cups of tea, to an $ 18 tin of tea that makes between 35-50 cups.
For your favorite hot mama, the company’s most popular tea blend is called Better Than Sex. An herbal rooibos tea blended with peppermint and dark chocolate, is also delicious as a hot toddy (add your spirit of choice).
