Feeling festive? You should be. The mother of all holidays is just a few days away. It’s time to shower your mom with affection. This Sunday, it’s a little less about what your mama gave you and a little more about what you give your mama.
Each Mother’s Day is a sweet occasion for sharing memories and heartfelt gifts. Or, if you’re like some of us, a time to pawn off previously gifted candles or even fresh-bought loofahs and bath scrubs. But we know you can do better.
Sure, you’ll never be able to make up for the Gift of Life, but you can still find a way to show her how happy you are she’s in yours.
PaperCity has rounded up some of the best Mother’s Day gifts, ones that say “Thinking of you” long before this week. Even if you bought it last minute. Don’t worry, we won’t tell.
