9 Mother's Day Gifts For The Mom Friends In Your Life
You've been friends through first dates and breakups, promotions and proposals, and now your BFF has a new title — mom. Now that she has to put her needs aside for diaper changes and carpooling, Mother's Day is a great time to remind your friend that she is loved just as much as she loves her little ones. But if the idea of standing in line at Macy's waiting for a gift receipt totally stresses you out, never fear. With a click of a button (and a strong Wi-Fi signal), you can find perfect Mother's Day gifts for friends who are moms right from your couch.
Whether she's into cooking or knitting, you can have a special gift that suits her personality show up at her doorstep. So if you've sent more flowers, chocolate and gift cards than you'd like to admit, why not go the extra mile and give your gal pal something she might actually enjoy. What she probably wants more than anything is a few extra hours of sleep, but these gifts are the next best way to let her know you're thinking about her on her special day. Besides, she'll get plenty of handmade cards from her kids.
