Mother’s Day Gift Ideas

Mother’s Day is THREE weeks away! Do you have a gift for your momma yet? If not, I am here to help!

You may recall me posting back in October that I was going to launching my very own “kitchen boutique” on Etsy. I am happy to report that it is doing so much better than I could have anticipated! I am absolutely loving getting to combine my passion for cooking and design into a little side hustle that brings me so much joy!

I recently have been working on some ideas with moms specifically in mind and thought I would share here with you! All orders ship out within 1–2 days so you still have some time to get your order in.

Mugs
These mugs are my favorite mugs ever and there are three different designs to pick from. They are massive and hold 16 ounces of mom’s favorite hot beverage, or wine if that’s her style. I love how classy these all look with their matte exterior, high gloss white imprint and then a high gloss interior. The artwork is silkscreened on and cured using a heat process making them dishwasher and microwave safe. In other words… Best. Mug. Ever!

You can see all my available mugs here.

Oven Mitts
My husband certainly knows his way around the kitchen and can grill up some mean meals but both my boys know, momma kids “Queen of the Kitchen”. These adorable oven mitts are available in both red and black. These oven mitts are fit for any queen who enjoys cooking with style and grace. This handy home essential is the perfect addition to bring a little pizazz to any “queendom”. The oven mitt is all black with a bright white design screenprinted on. These are quilted and padded and made of high-quality 100% cotton and has a convenient loop for hanging as well as a pocket. Add a box of muffin mix and a wooden spoon for a perfect gift. It can be washed and reused and most importantly will protect your hands when handling hot pots.

You can purchase this black oven mitt here or the red one here.

Words of Affirmation Magnet Set
We can all use more positivity and self love in our lives. This magnet set confirms, supports, and uplifts your mom in the best way possible. Having these on display will remind her that she is important, powerful, strong, enough, brave, beautiful, wise, and worthy. 

These are available in both blush pink or black. Each set comes in a small sheer drawstring bag all ready for gifting!

You can purchase this pink magnet set here or the black set here.

Flour Sack Towel
We all know moms can sometimes obsess with being people pleasers. It’s just in our DNA. But, sometimes I think mom’s need a reminder that we can’t make everyone happy. These hilarious towels are a good reminder for mom that only tacos have that kind of power.

This 100% cotton towel is made from an incredibly absorbent flour sack and the artwork is silkscreened on. It’s heavy duty, machine washable, and lint free. These towels maintain an excellent quality even after multiple washes! 

I now have 9 different fun designs to pick from in my shop if this one isn’t mom’s cup of tea.

You can purchase these towels here.

Wine Glass
Last but not least, if anyone knows me, a wine glass is always a welcome gift and these are my favorite ever! Stemless wear is all the rage and provides the ideal handhold to look, swirl, smell and taste wine of all kinds. It is the perfect glass for parties, wine tastings, or just lounging around with its wide base and smooth rim. The text is silkscreened on in a black ink making it durable and high quality.

Diva Did What?!?

You may have noticed the recipes and posts have been pretty thin the last couple of months. I promise you, I have a good reason for it and the recipes will be back! I’ve been a little busy with a very exciting project.

I am someone who is always looking for ways to grow and improve in everything I do and provide the best to my followers and cooking enthusiasts of the world. So, I have been very busy working on something really big. Like really big! Let me start from the beginning…

A few months back it was late on a Friday night and I had a few glasses of wine to drink and I was working on planning my meals for the upcoming week. I know! I am living a wild and crazy life!

I have a custom meal planning sheet I designed that I have been using for years. (You may recall a post about it from several months back.) That night I thought to myself, “It sure would be great to have a whole note pad of these so I don’t have to print them out every month. If I had notepads of these custom printed, I bet other people would use them too.” So in that moment I decided I am going to sell my meal planning notepads!

Meal Planning Notepad

I started thinking about how I could sell them. How can people order them? How can I accept payment? The whole ecommerce side of things was a lot to take on just to sell notepads. Then I thought, if I am going to put in all this work to sell notepads I should totally sell other things too! That night I got out a spiral bound notebook and went down a brainstorming rabbit hole and I just started listing out all the things I wanted to design and sell. Wine glasses, coffee mugs, towels, aprons, the list went on and on. I decided in that moment I was going to open my very own online kitchen boutique! So crazy, right?!?

As many of you may know, I am a graphic designer by day and a blogger by night. Designing is my passion and something that makes me so happy, and so is cooking. I had found a way to combine two things I really loved and the prospect of that was so exciting!

I spent evenings and weekends over the next two months in my home office putting my all into this, and I loved every single second of it! I designed, I researched, I came up with a business plan, I looked at so many different coffee mugs and wine glasses and towels. If it was going to have my name on it, it had to be something I would swoon over myself and it had to reflect my personality and style. Both classy and hilarious. I didn’t want the same generic mug you can find anywhere else, I wanted my stuff to stand apart and to really feel like it had come from a specialty kitchen boutique.

While cooped up in my home these last several months, working on this online kitchen boutique has been my saving grace, my creative outlet. And so, I am so excited to tell you all that as of yesterday, Diva di Cucina has expanded to not only be a go to resource for recipes and inspiration in the kitchen, but has branched out and now also includes a line of unique and quality kitchen products all designed by me!

So, if you want some amazing items for your kitchen, or are looking to do a little holiday shopping, perhaps you will consider checking out my online kitchen boutique. (I have some great stocking stuffers!) You can access my shop by selecting Etsy from the drop-down menu if you are on a mobile device or by clicking on the E in the yellow circle above if you are on a computer.

With gratitude,

Diva di Cucina
