While the celebration is sure to be low key this year, these San Diego eateries and shops are offering Mother’s Day specials to ensure mom still gets spoiled on her special day.

In honor of Mother’s Day, The Gluten Free Baking Company is offering cookie kits, pizza kits, and pampering kits to treat mom on her special day. The kits are available for pre-order and can be picked up on Saturday, May 9.

The pizza kit includes a par-baked crust, cheese, and tomato sauce (vegan options are available,) and costs $20, while the cookie kit, which costs $13, includes the makings for classic sugar cookies, along with fun mix-ins.

For those looking for a gift to accompany the baking kits, The Gluten Free Baking Co. has curated a pampering kit full of locally crafted goodies.
