I love to cook. I make dinner from scratch about five nights a week. When Best Buy asked us to pick our preferred Mother’s Day gift from a list, based on our personality type, I knew that my personality type was Foodie mom (included in the other options were “fitness mom”, which…I wish, but no). Best Buy had a number of gifts on the “foodie mom” list that turned my head; the KitchenAid Ultra Power Tilt-Head Stand Mixer just about made me drool. But I actually already have a KitchenAid mixer that I’ve had for ages; my only excuse for getting a new one would be that mine is boring white and they come in SO MANY pretty colors! Yes, I’m shallow.

The Dash Greek Yogurt Maker was also intriguing. I didn’t even know there was such a thing as a yogurt maker! How cool! But if I’m honest, it’s just as easy to buy Greek yogurt – that stuff is EVERYWHERE these days – and the yogurt maker would probably go the way of my bread maker and ice cream machine, both of which are…around here somewhere.

The 8-bottle wine chiller also turned my head. How nice, how elegant it would be to have eight bottles of chilled wine on hand at all times! It would be great for entertaining…but as cool as it sounds it’s a solution to a problem I don’t really have; I usually find plenty of room, even in my crowded refrigerator, for the 2-3 bottles of wine I have on hand most of the time. I don’t think I know enough people that I’d want to entertain to justify eight bottles of wine. The chiller would be great for someone with a bigger family or wine collection, or someone who entertains a lot, though.

Finally, I settled on two gifts (because I’m greedy!) that I’d love to have, and which I think would make my cooking experience more enjoyable. They are the Samsung 22″ Class LED 1080p HDTV and the Rocketfish Under-Cabinet Mount For Most 13″ – 22″ Flat-Panel TVs. I have long wanted a television in the kitchen, and ever since I saw those TVs that mount under the kitchen cabinet I have coveted one. It’s not that I need to have a TV on at all times, but there are times when I’m watching a show and know I need to get up and, say, start the salad. I’ve been known to drag the chopping board and bowl and veggies into the living room so I can work in front of the TV and finish my show at the same time. It’s not an ideal solution; it can be messy and isn’t exactly efficient. If I could just flip the TV on in the kitchen and finish my show while I work in there, I’d save time and it would make the experience of preparing a meal that much more enjoyable and relaxed.

    I just purchased a Shark sweeper, lightweight for in between heavy cleaning, love it. There are several models to choose from, make sure you get the one that the canister can be removed and emptied. it weight 12 lbs and has several attachments. Best Buy has great things!

    Would love to have a wine frig built in, until then, just throw in the frig. Thanks for the nice review of all the products. Seems my small foodie things never wear out, made well before the throw away came into play. I do dream of all the fancy colors tho. )

    Yep – definitely some great Mother’s Day gifts here at Best Buy. I would love the Kitchen Aide Stand Mixer. I hate to admit it, but I don’t own one!

    Oooh I love your list! Can I just copy and paste and send to my family? As for my mom, the Dash Greek Yogurt Maker sounds like something she would really like.

    It’s so hard to picking the right gift for my mother for Mother’s Day. This year with all the great tips and ideas I have been seeing should make things a lot easy.

    These are great suggestions! I love making a wishlist for birthdays, holidays, etc. I though it was impersonal at first but it really helps the people in my life and since they are choosing from a list I still get a little bit of a suprise. happy mothers day in advance!

    Best Buy has everything I really want for Mother’s Day! I love electronics of all types. I’d really love a flat-screen TV, but I don’t think my son’s allowance will cover it. :)

    I do love fun kitchen appliances. I also tend to drool. I am intrigued by the ninja blender. I will have to go check that out.

    I need so little these days. My kitchen center refuses to wear out and it’s over 20yo. It’s boring white.

  8. Anya@IW says

    Excellent choices, Jennie! I’ll take one of each!

    And please include 8 bottles of wine with my wine chiller.

    Hey, a mom can dream, right?! ;-)
