One of the things you love about Mom is her discerning nature. And it’s quite charming that, when she sees something she wants, she goes out and gets it. When a holiday rolls around, however, the mom who has seen it all (or maybe even has it all) creates a conundrum. How can you show your appreciation for her with a gift she’ll actually appreciate? We say, go thoughtful or go home. Whether it’s a personalized sign or an in-sync set of lamps, a unique present that comes from the heart means so much more than anything she’s found so far. Behold, our picks for a picky woman.
My Grandma Hannah was the first person to introduce me to palindromes, words that read the same backward and forward. Her name, with its impeccable symmetry and simple syllables, still wins as my favorite palindrome. “Mom” is another favorite, though for different reasons. Sure, it was one of the first words I uttered and it holds powerful meaning in my life. But what really tickles me is that the word “MOM” when written in all upper-case letters spells “WOW.”
How perfect is that? Seriously.
Moms come in many modes. While they all love basking in adoration on Mother’s Day (May 8 this year), their gift preferences are unique, reflecting their individual interests and personalities. Below is our 2016 offering of creative ideas for the many types of wondrous Moms and Grandmas.
