MOTHER’S DAY GIFT IDEA: Sugar (Order Today For Standard Delivery)

If you want to send a gift to your mother, grandmother, sister, aunt or other favorite mom, today’s the last day you can order with standard five-day delivery. Tomorrow is possible, but it gets iffy to guarantee delivery by Saturday. (Mother’s Day is Sunday, May 8th.)

We’d like to recommend these exquisite, hand-crafted balls of sugar from Chambre de Sucre.

They are stunning with coffee or tea. Even if Mom doesn’t use sugar herself, guests will long remember being treated to them.

This Sucre Rond (round sugar) is available in 36-piece and 42-piece boxes; square-shaped sugars are available as well.

  • See the details and order online.
  • Do you know your demerara from your muscovado? Check out the different types of sugar.

    MOTHER’S DAY GIFT IDEA: The Best Toffee

    Combine chocolate, crunchiness and the most buttery almond toffee we’ve ever had, and you get a great gift idea for Mother’s Day, just 10 days away.

    We’ve enjoyed lots of good toffee, but Enstrom’s is number one on our list.

    The company makes conventional toffee, broken from the slab into rectangular pieces, as well as these individual pieces, called Almond Toffee Petites.

    Sugar-free toffee is also available—and just as delicious as the regular toffee. The products are certified kosher by Scroll K, The Vaad Hakashrus Of Denver.

  • Buy Almond Toffee Petites, 30 pieces for $19.95.
  • Buy Almond Toffee Petites, 60 pieces for $39.95.
  • Buy Sugar Free Almond Toffee, 1 pound for $20.95.
  • Buy Original Almond Toffee, your choice of dark or milk chocolate, 1 pound for $19.95.
  • Buy Original Almond Toffee, your choice of dark or milk chocolate, 2 pound for $39.95.

    Mom will love it!




    MOTHER’S DAY: Beautiful Chocolate

    Hearts and flowers: Beautiful hand-painted
    chocolates from Anna Shea, available at


    Mother’s Day? It isn’t even Easter yet.

    True, but Mother’s Day falls a scant two weeks after Easter. You need a gift strategy.

    As far as gourmet chocolate goes, Anna Shea creates chocolate “haute couture”: beautiful, artisan-crafted and hand-decorated chocolate designs.

    This may be the best-looking box of chocolates we’ve ever seen. And beyond impeccable appearances, each piece is delectable.

    Each jewel-like chocolate is handmade and then hand-painted (that’s edible paint, of course) with a design that evokes the flavor of the delicious ganache inside.

    If Mom loves a box of fine chocolate, she’ll be delighted to receive a box of Anna Shea chocolates—whether for Mother’s Day, as a thank-you for Easter dinner or for no occasion in particular.

  • Purchase a box.
  •, created in response to the many requests we get from readers for gift recommendations, has just launched. It includes our favorite gift items—something for everyone, from $15.00 and up.

    EASTER GIFTS: Check Out The Nibble Gourmet Market

    After years of requests from readers, THE NIBBLE Gourmet Market is now open.

    The almost 100 products—and more added weekly—are our favorites for gift-giving. Most have been NIBBLE Top Picks Of The Week.

    Take a closer look at these cute chocolate chicks. Each is filled with a different flavor of creamy chocolate ganache.

    If you’re looking for something more sophisticated, Choclatique fills Easter-colored bonbons with a selection of ganache, creams and caramels.

    We welcome your feedback on The Nibble Gourmet Market and hope to become a go-to resource for gift-giving.
