Mother’s Day Gift Inspiration


My mom is such an outrageously special woman. Sometimes I can’t believe we live so far away because our time together is so precious and fun and probably one of my favorite things. Whenever I go home we inevitably find ourselves at the kitchen table with a cup of coffee carefully dissecting everything that’s happened since we last saw each other and psychoanalyzing our family’s and friends’ behavior. It’s sacred time. We also usually wind up watching a Real Housewives of Beverly Hills episode or five and that time is just as magical. I love my mom.

I sent her a little something in the mail the other day (be on the lookout, Mom!) but here are a few more inspired ideas if you’re still looking for a treat for your mom (or wife or sister or best friend…). If she’s anything like mine, though, she probably just wants a sweet card and some time together.
