Moms.. sigh. What can we say? There are days all we have to do is give her a call and hear “Everything is going to be fine, don’t you worry”. With all the hustle-bustle in our lives (or so we say), we find it hard to tell her how much we love her. By the way, Mother’s Day is just around the corner! Forget all the, for lack of a better word, tacky last minute Best Mom mugs et all. Here are some gift ideas that will make her smile 🙂
2. For the interior design queen – Does your mom take pride in designing every single nook of your home? Does she obsess over every little details of home decor? Then why not surprise her with something that she might add to her collection of home decor items?
