When my son was little, one of our favorite books was Todd Parr’s The Mommy Book, an illustrated classic that celebrates moms who ride motorcycles alongside moms who drive minivans. The moral of the story: There are all kinds of mothers in this world. It’s love — not a particular hairstyle, profession or hobby — that unites them.
A truly great Mother’s Day gift captures the recipient’s distinct style, tastes and interests. To help you celebrate the mamas, grandmas and maternal figures in your life, we’ve pulled together this shopping guide for all kinds of mothers — from the traditionalist to the DIY diva.
