Mother’s Day is Coming!!!! And Here You’ll Find My Favorite Kitchen Gifts Guide!
Now’s the time to start thinking about how you want to celebrate it the awesome Moms in your life.
I’m all about the practical. And products that make my life a little easier. Or help me spend less money. While I love a good splurge every now and again, it’s the gifts that get used that I love the most. And it’s those gifts that I love to give the most. (Like the spoon rest that I got for my brother and his new bride. I thought about getting them something “fancier” or nicer, but decided to go with a couple smaller more practical things on their registry, that I know they’d use. And sure enough, just days after returning from their honeymoon, he texts me a photo of the spoon rest “in action.” Made me smile inside.)
So that’s what you’ll find on my Mothers’ Day gift guide…practical and helpful gifts for the busy mom in your life!
Well, I couldn’t not include these! They can help save time, money and sanity in the kitchen, and what mom doesn’t want that?!

Instant Pot Accessories
Here is a list of my favorite accessories:
I have 3. And I love them all. Mainly, because I steam alot and like having at least 1 clean one hanging around 😉
And I have this one.
And this one.
When you go to pull your insert out of the Instant Pot/EPC, it’s warm…not piping hot, usually. But it’s too warm to remove without a heat barrier. My favorite…our FreezEasy Pinch Oven Mitts, of course!
Yes, we sell these! (We have lots of great freezer cooking accessories in our store!)
These Pinch Oven Mitts are PERFECT for getting the IP/EPC insert out of the base after cooking.
A Second (Or Third) Sealing Ring
Your sealing ring will take on the smells of the food you make, and you’ll quickly discover you need/want a second, even a third, one. Many people have one for savory dishes and one for sweet dishes. I’d venture to say you’d want a third just for chili/soups.
They even make colored ones, if you want to color code yours for what types of meals you use with which sealing ring.
A Second Insert
Yes, a second…because sometimes the first one ends up with leftovers in the fridge (reason for a lid, below).
And sometimes you want to make 2 things in the IP in the same cooking session – steamed broccoli & chili. Make the chili, then steam the broccoli – and dinner is ready!
I recommend getting a 2nd Stainless Steel insert, before getting the ceramic insert. If you’re a serious EPCer and use your EPC often, then it might be time to invest in the ceramic insert!
A Lid for the Insert
Got leftovers? You’ll want a lid for your insert.
Or, you might want this kind, if you plan to keep things on warm for awhile, you might want a glass lid.
Hopefully these products will make your Mothers’ Day gift giving a little simpler and easier…Happy Mothers’ Day!
