It's no secret that sometimes the hardest person to shop for is also one of the most special: your mom. That's why whenever we're in doubt or can't find that perfect gift for her birthday or Mother's Day, we look to books. (They're good for much more than inspiring Mother's Day quotes.) Whether your mom has only a few precious minutes a week to read, she devotes time every day to devour the latest bestseller, or you're constantly exchanging mother-daughter books, there are plenty of thoughtful options for books for mom this Mother's Day. RELATED: Mother's Day Gift Ideas When trying to choose a book, remember that being a mom is a lot of hard work: Treat her to some uninterrupted me-time to put up her feet and dive into a new read. If you're lucky, she'll let you read her new novel or hilarious autobiography once she's finished.
Mother's Day is all about showering your mom with love, and what better way to do it than with a beautiful homemade lunch spread? Cooking for mom allows you to have full control over the menu, so you can avoid her dislikes and play to all her favorite flavors. We've gathered some of our most popular springtime recipes to choose from, all of which highlight in-season produce and can be served at any time of day. They're also all perfect for outdoor dining, so if you can, serve this feast on the porch, complete with coffee, mimosas, and of course, the Minty Moscow Mule Punch. Most of the recipes can be made in advance, too, which will save you from day-of stress. Talk about a win-win!RELATED: Mother's Day Activities the Whole Family Will Love
