Mother’s Day Food Gifts to Buy at World Market

If your mom loves food from around the world but international travel isn’t in your Mother’s Day gift budget this year, World Market is a great place to shop for Mother’s Day food gifts. Fancy Spanish olive oil for cooking? They have it. French jams for her morning toast? They have that, too. How about extra umami Japanese mayonnaise? Is mayonnaise a weird gift? Well, you’re a weird kid, so we think she’ll be into it. You’ll even find some fancy stuff from the good ol’ U.S. of A. to make a gourmand mom smile. If you’re looking for easy Mother’s Day gifts for a mom who eats, these are the best Mother’s Day gifts to pick up at World Market.

Fly by Jing Shorty Spice Set

This gift set comes with three trial sizes of Fly by Jing’s best-selling condiments: Sichuan Chili Crisp, Mala Spice Mix, and Zhong Sauce. It’s the perfect Mother’s Day food gift for a mom who needs some spice in her life, especially now that you’ve moved out and are no longer around to scream at the Xbox at 2 a.m. or accidentally start small kitchen fires when you forgot you put a frozen pizza in the oven. If you’re dubious, take into account that our taste tester absolutely loved Fly by Jing’s chili crisp, calling it “the most unique and interesting chili crisp” we tried. The perf Mother’s Day gift for a unique and interesting mom.

Mumm Brut Rosé Sparkling Wine

Did I pick this sparkling wine for our list of Mother’s Day gifts because it’s called Mumm? Yes. Yes, I did. A pun for your Mumm? Who could pass it up? Anyway, if mom likes wine, you kind of can’t go wrong with a sparkling rosé.

Bushwick Kitchen Trees Knees Cinnamon Maple Syrup

I’ll die on this hill: A great bottle of maple syrup is the single best thing you can have in the kitchen. It instantly levels up any breakfast, whether we’re talking about the homemade the pancakes you’re obviously cooking up for Mother’s Day brunch to regular old Eggo waffles. Anyway, Bushwick Kitchen Trees Knees maple syrup comes in a fahncy bottle that makes a great gift. Granted, yes, we love some Pearl Milling Company, but that just doesn’t make the cut when it comes to Mother’s Day food gifts.

Graza Drizzle Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Getting your mom an elevated version of something she uses all the time is a pro move. Every single time she reaches for it, what is she going to think about? What a damn good kid you are! Brilliant. This Graza drizzle oil is top notch—it’s the Sporked’s favorite olive oil and I spotted it on the shelves at World Market. If you want an easy Mother’s Day gift that’ll be around for a while (reminding mom what a mensch you are), this is the way to go.

Kewpie Mayonnaise

This is another Mother’s Day gift from World Market that allows you to frequently weasel your way into mom’s subconscious. This delicious Japanese mayo is a Sporked favorite for a variety of reasons—it has a strong eggy flavor, a little bit of sweetness, and lots of umami. Next time mom wants a sandwich, fries, sushi, or a salad, she’s gonna be so glad you bought her a bottle of this mayo. Almost makes up for not becoming a doctor!

Bonne Maman Mini Fruit Spreads Gift Set

This is the perfect gift for Mother’s Day if you missed out on getting your mom the beloved Bonne Maman advent calendar last Christmas. In fact, I kind of prefer this one because 24 spreads can be a lot to go through, but five is doable, especially if mom like jam on her toast. The set comes with of strawberry, apricot, cherry, orange marmalade, and red currant-raspberry. And the name means “good mom” in French! Bonne Maman for your bonne maman! Too damn cute.

Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Whiskey Ground Coffee

If your mom’s still dealing with your shit around the house, she’s going to need some strong coffee to get through it all. There were a lot of coffees to choose from at World Market, but none seemed like a better easy Mother’s Day gift than this Jack Daniel’s coffee. Remind her to leave a little room in the mug for a shot whiskey—it’s Mother’s Day and she’s earned this!
