Gifts for Mom
Mother’s Day can be overwhelming.
Knowing what to get for the mom (or moms) in your life is tough, especially when you are constantly getting inundated with ads suggesting dozens of the “ultimate gifts for mom”. You want to be creative and something unique, but also want to make sure it will be something she likes. I end up stressing out about all the options and get complete analysis paralysis. Sometimes I wish I could get away with macaroni art or a hand drawn card made with crayons like I did when I was little.
But Mother’s Day gifts don’t need to be complex or extravagant. They just need to show you care. Desserts are a great way to do that.
Taking the time to make something special and give your mom a sweet treat to indulge in hits all those boxes. And these days, you can find the prefect recipe for a dessert that fits any diet or allergy needs.
