If your mom is the apple of your eye, here are a few foodie gifts to spice things up.

From a coffee-coated massage to custom kitchen utensils to vegan food delivered to her door, each gift will keep moms eating well and looking good.

A full body experience: She will be tantalized with the Double Espresso Scrub, a full body scrub featuring earthy notes of coffee beans and more to exfoliate the skin, stimulate circulation and remove impurities at The Spa at Four Seasons Hotel Atlanta. Post scrub, her body will be hydrated with a light sweet cream body milk massage. While relaxing in the lounge, she can also energize with a cup of three-bean house-made coffee. 50 minutes for $165.
75 14th St. N.E., Atlanta. 404-881-9898. www.fourseasons.com/atlanta/spa.

Sweet treats: The only thing sweeter than moms is candy, right? Shower her with confectionery goodness from Collier Candy Company, which offers a myriad of sweets from chocolate, to hard-candy edible necklaces to soda. Prices vary.
675 Ponce De Leon Ave. N.E., Atlanta. 404-343-1488.

Wine rub down: Give the gift of Chardonnay Body Lotion, a creamy lotion made with over 30-percent Napa Valley chardonnay from Farm Star Living. She can apply liberally and remain sober. $36.

Cut to it: Since she loves to cook, upgrade her kitchen utensils with hand-made cutting and serving boards, hand-carved wooden spoons and other custom designs from Penn & Knife. All of the wood used is from sustainable and local sources. Custom orders are an option; other items can be found at Made Again in Inman Park. Prices vary. If you like to plan ahead, plan to take Mom to Penn & Knife’s pop up shop during the Kirkwood Sprig Fling on Saturday, May 14.
404-987-0868. www.pennandknife.com.

Special delivery: Send food to her door from The Purple Carrot, a vegan meal kit delivery service featuring all the pre-measured ingredients she needs to create plant-based meals. Menu change often, but yummy dishes may include jalapeño corn cakes, Mongolian seitan stir-fry and more. $68-$74.
