Yes, it's still only the first week of April, but Mother's Day is right around the corner. That day dedicated to all of the maternal figures in our lives is one filled with challah French toast, from-scratch hash browns, and bouquets of spring flowers. And while we're all for an elaborate brunch at home, giving her a gift of food that you didn't make yourself (and wreck the kitchen in the process) is more than OK—it's sometimes prefered.

As a shopping editor who's currently deep in the weeds of researching gifts for Mother's Day, one delicious and elegant option keeps resurfacing: the Hu Kitchen Mother's Day Gift Box. The brand's organic dark chocolate is unique in that it contains no dairy, cane sugar, emulsifiers, palm oil, or refined sugar and yet it's still delicious. The box contains three each of Hu's best-selling bars, as the name implies (cashew vanilla, salted dark chocolate, hazelnut, and plain), all packaged in a sleek, giftable box. The bars themselves are molded into rectangular shapes made up of squares that shoppers say "break off cleanly to share," but since this is mom's day, we won't count on it.

What sets Hu apart is the fact that all of its chocolate is totally vegan. Not only is each bar free of animal products, shoppers can also feel good about the fact that Hu chocolate is certified fair-trade, meaning all of the cocoa is grown sustainably and equitably farmed. This is the perfect gift for my own mom, my mother-in-law, and myself (dog mom counts, right?), because aside from simply loving chocolate, we'll all enjoy it more knowing it's made from pronounceable, sustainable, and flavorful ingredients.

Reviewers say the bars are "absolutely delicious" and one even went as far as to write that Hu is the "only brand that has been able to truly quell my cravings." A second wrote that the ingredients are "a dream" and that the chocolate itself "tastes like a dream," too. Others added that the selection of treats makes a great gift, and another wrote that the chocolate was "lovely, delicious and [packaged] in a wonderful box."
