8 Design-Forward Ways To Celebrate the Mother Figure in Your Life

Here’s your PSA to remind you that Mother’s Day is less than a month away, so it’s time to start thinking about what to gift the mother figure in your life (*ahem, quick tip for dads: a gift for your wife goes a long way here too ;-). It’s been a hard year for moms who have had to pull double/triple/quadruple duties in her roles as chef, teacher, cook, referee and household ringleader. Whether you’ll be seeing your mom in person or virtually over FaceTime, we hope you’ll be able to see her face when she opens her gift – one of our picks below or just a phone call to celebrate the holder of the most important title in the world – though we think both would be just perfect.
