Unexpected Mother’s Day Gifts

Moms can be the easiest and the hardest people in your life to shop for. On one hand, all Mom really wants is a little facetime with you—in which case, why not take her to brunch on Mother’s Day at a place like Telepan Local? On the other—doesn’t the woman who brought you into this world deserve more than just another flower bouquet? (Not that we’re trying to guilt you or anything.) If you’re still scrambling for a thoughtful present, think outside the box and gift Mom with something she’d really appreciate: like a stylish iPad case from Coach, or an elegantly designed drip coffee maker from Chemex. Or better yet, hand-write her a note with a Mont Blanc writing instrument. Deputy editor Dean Stattmann goes through all of these out-of-the-box gift ideas in our last-minute Mother’s Day Gift Guide video. And don’t forget, Mother’s Day is this Sunday, May 11.
