Gift ideas for Mother's Day

Mother's Day usually entails the following: phone calls, flowers, and mad dashes to the local Hallmark store. If you're like most of us and you've procrastinated on getting something special for the one who gave you life, don't fret. You can still get your mom something cool, something involving cheese, perhaps? (Remember just what blog it is you're reading.) Either way, it beats a lame greeting card with a puppy on the front.

Left to right, row by row:
Cheese of the Month Club membership ($840/year): It's the gift that keeps on giving!
The Cheese Primer by Steven Jenkins ($16.95): Give Mom this and she'll be well on her way to becoming a well-versed cheese connoisseur.
Rachael Ray fondue set ($49.99): Oh, hush, fondue is hip again.
Set of 4 Pewter cheese markers ($50): So gorgeous! If I owned these, I'd make it a habit to serve cheese all of the time.
Clean slate risers ($30.00-$98.00): A very classy and tasteful way to display your cheese.
Mouse cheese knife ($5.95): Because mice and cheese go together. You had to have seen this coming.

Love that little knife! I have the cheese primer and, although, it's a good book, there are a few better ones out there IMHO.

One book that your Canadian readers (or those who like to travel in Canada) may like to consider for mom is Gurth Pretty's guide to Canadian Artisan Cheese. It's perfect for locavore cheese lovers or road tripping Thelma and Louise type moms.
