Mother's Day is May 13 this year and that means the countdown is on to find the perfect present for dear mum. But if your go-to gift (i.e. fine chocolates or a flower bouquet) is starting to feel a little stale, we've got some clever Mother's Day gifts that are sure to delight (not disappoint) your sweet mom. And don't forget, when shopping for mom, there's no harm in splurging on some gifts for yourself!
While I love a good French toast in bed on Mom's Day, I'd be thrilled to have it served with a side of French lessons. Or in lieu of the standard massage gift certificate, I'd be psyched to try a float session instead. In my book, getting something entirely unexpected makes it that much more exciting. However, there's a caveat here. You don't want to give something totally impractical no matter how high the originality factor. Case in point: that new-fangled kitchen gadget that sits collecting dust on top of the fridge (looking at you, quesadilla maker!).
If you're sick of the standard Mother's Day staples, then these 15 clever (yet practical) gifts are just want you need to up your gift-giving game. She's going to be talking about these gifts for a long time.
