Mother’s Day Gift Guide
Comments () | Published April 24, 2009
Mother’s Day is fast approaching, and while many turn to spa treatments, brunches, or flowers, an original gift always shows that you put in some extra thought. Here’s a list of thoughtful presents that suit many personalities, and they’ll last longer than a few hours.
For the sentimentalist

Handprint craft kit, $11.95.
Make a memory with Mom—create handprints or foot molds when kids are small, and display them in a garden on a wall. It’s a gift that will last a lifetime, and it’s way more transportable than those on-the-wall growth charts.
Custom silhouette pillow, $40 to $80.
Capture a memory with more than just a photo. This Web-based company takes any profile image and turns it into an old-fashioned silhouette with a twist—it’ll place your likeness on pillows, canvases, coffee mugs, mouse pads, and more. Charm Mom with a throw pillow with your childhood silhouette. You can custom-design the color, pattern, and size. Order now—delivery takes a few weeks.
