Little Luxuries: Mother’s Day

If your mom has taught you anything, one of her top lessons is not to spend too much money on gifts- especially for her. Who hasn’t heard their mother proclaim, “Just a card is enough!”? As she often is, mom is right about this one. Gifts- particularly for Mother’s Day- do not have to be grand or ostentatious to deliver the message that you love and appreciate her. To a mom, tiny tokens and little luxuries are what make her smile and feel special. That, and knowing that you didn’t max out your credit card on her behalf will make her so proud that you really were listening to her. Here is a collection of lovely little items your mom- or your sister, best friend, nana, aunt- probably wouldn’t spring for themselves, but would be touched to receive from someone special.
