Mother's Day: Ten Last-Minute Gifts From Cheesecake to Bacon Mojo Donuts
If there's anyone you're indebted to (besides Sallie Mae), it's the woman who brought you into this world - the naked, gasping, screaming little seven-pound thing you once were. And birthing was the easy part. After that came the terrible twos, the schoolyard fights, puberty.

Mother's Day is payback time. Instead of scoring her some cheesy flowers or a musical Hallmark card, surprise her with a thoughtful, locally-made edible goodie. We've rounded up a selection of products from local purveyors - one of which is sure to make your mom happy she endured pregnancy-induced heartburn and 3 a.m. karate kicks for nine months to give you life.
10. Om Nom Nom's mix-and-match cookie six-pack ($18) is an ideal option for moms with a serious sweet tooth. We suggest at least a couple of their Spicy Mexican Snickerdoodles, an Orange Zested Chocolate Chip or two and def some Chocolate Chips. They're vegan, they're delicious - and they're baked with lots of love.

9. If mom's a meat lover, Proper Sausages is your best bet. Scoop up The Prune & Cognacs (Berkshire pork, applewood smoked pork, cognac and prunes), The Fig & Blue Cheese (Berkshire pork, figs, blue cheese and balsamic vinegar) and The Whiskey Cherry Venison (New Zealand Venison, Berkshire pork, whiskey and dried cherries). These aren't your grandma's sausages ... but they can be your mom's.
