If you’re like me, it can be so hard to shop for a Mother’s Day gift. Despite knowing my mom’s taste quite well, I’m often conflicted. What can you possibly get for the woman who means everything to you? As a general rule of thumb, I like to shop for her gift(s) with this question in mind: What is something she would love, but not necessarily buy for herself? Mother’s Day is definitely a day to treat mom, so also keep in mind that her gift doesn’t have to be entirely practical; indulgent things like a soft bath robe, hand cream, or a silk pillowcase are always welcome. If you do decide to go a more practical route, shop for something that’s also aesthetically pleasing; this could be a patterned water bottle, cute plates, or a sleek espresso maker. Lastly, take the time to write a handwritten card or poem for mom. She will appreciate this more than anything!
