If you’re really ready to splurge on your mom — look no further than a KitchenAid mixer. These are an essential piece of baking equipment.

And, a KitchenAid mixer can be used for tons of different things. The 5-quart bowl size on this model is perfect for anything from cake batters to bread dough, plus it comes in a slew of colors to match your mom’s space. It’s also a shoe-in for even more gifts to come, since KitchenAid has a ton of attachments worth snapping up.
