Mother’s Day Gifts for the Kitchen Mom

You can find her in the kitchen- ingredients spread out all over the counter, a little bit of flour on her face, whipping up a new (and likely delicious) recipe. The Kitchen Mom is a wonderful cook, hostess, and of course, mother. She’s the one always making sure everyone’s hearts and bellies are full when they leave her home. For this upcoming Mother’s Day, we’ve put together a list of a few items any Kitchen Mom will be sure to love! Check them out:

Southern Sayings Mugs

Whether it be for coffee, sweet tea, or hot chocolate, your Kitchen Mom probably likes a lot of mugs for her family. These sweet sayings mugs are both practical and adorable, plus they will make for a sweet reminder in her kitchen! Each with a different Southern saying, these will bring her a little extra smile when she’s drinking her morning drink! “I love you like biscuits and gravy” is the perfect Mother’s Day gift that will remind her every time she picks up her mug of how special she is.

Kitchen Apron

Chances are, your mom has ruined a lot of cute shirts while cooking and baking! Instead of her old t-shirt with holes in it, give her a nice apron to wear! This gift will show her that you appreciate all the hard work she spends in the kitchen, and show her that she deserves to wear something nice when she cooks! Since she’s always serving others, she probably doesn’t take the time to get herself an apron, so it will be a sweet touch that you are looking out for her!

“Grateful. Thankful. Blessed.” Embroidered Napkins

This gift transforms something practical into something precious. Whether it’s to hang up on the stove, or to use for cleaning up after a dinner, your Kitchen Mom needs napkins. Instead of having generic napkins in her home, gift her these napkins that will always remind her how grateful, thankful, and blessed you are for her.

Featured Artist: Angela Staehling

Angela Staehling has been an artist for as long as she can remember! She spent time early in her career working as a graphic designer for several advertising agencies. Eventually, she returned back to her love of painting and started creating art for home décor products. Twenty years later, she continues to do what she loves and is looking forward to working on more inspiring collections.

She lives in St. Louis, Missouri with her husband, three teenage children, and two cats. Angela began working with Creative Co-Op four years ago and has had numerous well-loved collections with us.

Don’t miss the Free Download of Angela’s About the Artist Card at the bottom!

What are your favorite Creative Co-Op products that you have been involved with?
I’m a passionate gardener, so my plants, holiday foliage, and Christmas trees have probably been my favorite collections to date. However, I am loving the new Urban Homestead line with all the vintage farmhouse feels!

Who inspires you?
My sources of inspiration have changed over the years as my styles have changed. I used to paint with a lot of realism and looked toward Old Masters’ work to get inspired. Now, I enjoy scrolling through Instagram to see a lot of new fresh artists. As my work has gotten much looser and lighter, I gravitate towards finding unique color combinations and subject matter.

What medium do you work in?


Today, I mostly work in gouache and acrylics. I’ve changed my art mediums over the years and used to spend a lot of time working in oils and gold leaf.

Do you have any other creative outlets?
I’m not sure if social media constitutes as a creative outlet, but lately I’ve enjoyed posting and sharing stories to my Instagram and Facebook accounts. I think this medium is an extension of my love of graphic design. You can also find me creating one-off projects around my home, such as re-purposing a dead bush from my yard, painting its branches white, and wrapping them around the ceiling light in our entryway. Over the years, I’ve enjoyed sewing, knitting, and traditional mosaic-making (using a hammer and hardie).

What is your favorite meal?
Right now, I’m hooked on my brother’s Eggplant Parmesan recipe. But as someone who enjoys following a plant-based diet, you can pretty much serve me a plate of any fruits and veggies and I will be quite happy. Celery juice and fruit smoothies also make up my daily go-to drinks, along with any herbal teas I infuse from my garden.

What’s your favorite place that you’ve traveled?

We’ve been fortunate to travel quite a bit (over 40 countries) over the years.  And of all the places we’ve visited, there is always an interesting gem that sets each location apart.

Florence, Italy might rise to the top as the most influential when it comes to creative inspiration. Not only does it have a rich history in the arts, but craftsman continue to carry on all the art traditions such as marbleizing paper, gilding, wood carving, and book binding.

Tell us about your studio!

My studio is located in my home which makes working quite convenient! I like to display some of my finished products around my studio, but mostly you will find bins of paints, brushes, pastel pencils, and other creative supplies. I typically spread my sketches, palettes, and any notes for upcoming collections across two large tables that I built with my husband. And of course you can always find my one cat, Theo, sprawled out across the table to watch me paint.
