When my son was little, one of our favorite books was Todd Parr’s The Mommy Book, an illustrated classic that celebrates moms who ride motorcycles alongside moms who drive minivans. The moral of the story: There are all kinds of mothers in this world. It’s love — not a particular hairstyle, profession or hobby — that unites them.

A truly great Mother’s Day gift captures the recipient’s distinct style, tastes and interests. To help you celebrate the mamas, grandmas and maternal figures in your life, we’ve pulled together this shopping guide for all kinds of mothers — from the traditionalist to the DIY diva.

Whole Foods Market™ Dry Skin Hand Cream

Treat Mom’s hands to rich hand cream made with 20% shea butter with extra moisture from a blend of argan and olive oils. Available in three uplifting scents: Sweet Pear, Vanilla Amber or Peony, Mint & Blackberry.

For the Crafty Mama

You could make this DIY Relaxing Lavender Body Scrub for Mom, or — if you really want to go all out — you could assemble all the ingredients and spend time crafting scrubs together!

For the Activist Mom

Whole Trade® Flowers

Prearranged bouquets make it easy to give Mom meaningful blooms. Whole Trade flower purchases support community development projects organized by flower farmworkers. It’s a beautiful thing.

Every day our plates get filled with news from the world of food. Here’s what our editors found most interesting today. ​

The Big Picture

Sure, we can tell you all about a beautiful patch of flowering garlic in the wild, or a mouthwatering cheesy toasted sub, but we all know that seeing is believing. Check out the winning photographs of this year’s Pink Lady Food Photographer of the Year competition to see exactly what we mean. Spoiler alert: Photographer Mark Benham took home the top title this year for his beautiful action shot of a baker tossing flour.

Veggies That Raise the Bar

Ramps, radishes and spring peas — these are few of our favorite spring things. Tasting Table makes a convincing case for mixing or muddling them into cocktails, and we think it’s the perfect way to toast the season. Love this idea? Be sure to try our recipes for Honeyed Beet and Cardamom-Carrot sparkling cocktails too!

How Chickpeas Can Change The World  

National Geographic’s The Plate recently interviewed agroecologist Ken Giller, who works in countries such as Tanzania and Rwanda to give farmers hands-on training to expand their cultivation of legumes. He believes that chickpeas and other legumes can help farmers’ soil and offer farmers a source of food as well. Giller says that among the thousands of small-farm households in Africa, four out of 10 struggle to feed their own families. He hopes that these unique crops can help to decrease that statistic.
