Featuring our favorite Mother's Day gifts

5 4 11

With origins dating back to ancient Greece and 17th-century Britain, today’s modern Mother’s Day is an opportunity to honor and celebrate your mother (or, for some of us, grandmother, aunt, wife, mentor, et cetera) by taking her to brunch and showering her with cards, flowers and gifts.

No matter if you’re surprising her with mimosas and breakfast in bed or a bouquet of her favorite flowers, this is an opportunity to thank her for the little things she did, does and most likely will do — like the late night phone calls, countless doses of wisdom and support, sideline cheers, home-cooked meals and much, much more.


Here are some of our picks:
