Before you knew how to bathe, eat, walk, and of course, shop, on your own, there was probably someone named [fill in the mother figure of your choice] who was there to do all that for you. Every day. For years. And if that's not enough reason to celebrate Mother's Day, it'd be pretty hard to say what would.
For holidays like this, the internet is your gift-giving oyster. Dive in for a groovy, mid-century looking wine rack from cooking.com (moms always need a drink, right?) or decorative, preppy monogram plates from C. Wonder. There's also the scented candle from Anthropologie that comes in a vintage-y hobnail glass and does double duty as a vase. Or, now that you're a big kid, get her packed for the beach with a cute coverup from Old Navy, or a neon e-reader and smartphone pouch set from Echo Designs.
