Massage certificates, candies, and bath bombs are nice Mother’s Day presents but some of the best gifts inspire you to spend quality time with the people you love.
Gifting your mother a book for Mother’s Day will give the two of you something completely new to gab about (not that the neighbors’ drama, your daddy using the wrong emojis, your cousin’s girl messing up the potato salad, and the fact that you finally have your own McDonald’s money aren’t endlessly fascinating.)
Slipping a paperback or two into that edible arrangement, or designer bag might also inspire you to learn something more about the woman who brought you into this world on the day you celebrate her for being patient enough not to take you out of it.
