Gifts for Mom That Don’t Require Her to Do Any Work

INSPIRATION

Why is it that so many Mother’s Day “gifts” actually require Mom to do things, like bake or cook or craft or clean? Sure, she might like to do these things (except maybe clean), but for at least one day out of the year, she deserves the option to do absolutely nothing. Preferably while drinking wine. In that spirit, here are gifts for Mom intended solely to treat and delight her.

Metallic Honeycomb Bud Vase
