To help you choose the perfect gift for mom, here as some recommendations we know she'll love, and what you’ll need to get it done:
Get her dressed. Take her out.

A great gift for mom? Cook for her!
Why go out to a fancy restaurant, when you know all she wants is the taste of ‘home’? We both know that a home-cooked meal, with all the Caribbean flava will have her asking for seconds and feeling appreciated.
Cooking is a great way to give mom a break from the kitchen while providing an experience of the tastebuds. Get your apron out and pre-heat the oven to cook up an unforgettable banquet of food using items from our Taste of The Caribbean Gift Box. From appetizer to dessert, this gift for mom set has all the right flavors to create a special menu, including Empty Plates by Lisa Escoveitch Dressing, FenMade Sweet Heat Pepper Jelly, Mudda n Law Sweet & Spicy Tamarind Sauce, Cocoa Republic Malted Milk Chocolate with Toffee, and more. Plus, this gift box comes with coffee and cake she can enjoy for days to come!
And if cooking is more trick than treat for you, bring the taste of the islands closer to her with any of our Caribbean Food Bundles packed with a diverse selection of sweet and savory foods and drinks. You can never go wrong with food as a gift for mom.
Fix up her space.
Every Caribbean mother appreciates a little ‘fix up’ around the house, so here’s a practical way to celebrate her. This gesture can be as simple as tidying up around her home, repairing furniture or appliances, or redecorating for her, but it’s still a very thoughtful gift for mom.
Getting handmade art pieces that she can display around her home is the icing on the cake. You could even buy a unique kitchen accessory such as a handcrafted Cutting Board Set, which comes with a cutting board, a cheese board, and coasters, making it perfect as a display item or for use when entertaining.
Another splendid option is a hand-painted art piece that captures everything about back home. This McAnuff Art View from Jamaica Grand Print on Canvas painting is as breathtaking as it is nostalgic as each stroke captures the spirit of Jamaica. You could also buy her hand-poured scented candles sure to make her home smell like the islands with every whiff.
