You know that “Mom” is “Wow” spelled upside down, right?
And this Mother’s Day we’ve rounded up 11 gifts aimed at wowing her back — and possibly making up for that time you (fill in the blank here).
Keeper of traditions, secrets and bins-worth of childhood memories, Moms know where the bodies are buried, specifically, the hamster under the tree and the fishes’ “burial at sea.” She’s seen you bare naked in the tub and has the baby pictures to prove it. Moms are notoriously underpaid, frequently forfeit sick days and are SD card-carrying members of the parent paparazzi. She taught you how to use a fork, work a zipper and put one foot in front of the other both literally and figuratively.
So what do you give someone who has been there since day one? Start with a note that includes a few of your favorite memories together and then let your creativity, budget and thoughtfulness take it from there.
While gift cards, spa dates, charitable donations in her name, or brunching with her favorite child (yes, you!) are classic ways to shower mom with love, the following are 11 gift ideas we thought were interesting, fun, practical, pretty, stylish, smart, creative and thoughtful — just like mom.
