Okay friends, we’ve got 8 1/2 days to get our Mother’s Day presents together.  I can happily say that my mom’s present is already on its way to her via airplane and husband’s suitcase. Usually, this is not the case for me. So for all you last-minute shoppers or for those moms you just don’t know how to buy for, I’ve got some ideas.  Of course they are all book related, but I think you can find something in this list that any mom would be happy to receive.
