Mother’s Day comes but once a year, and while mom will probably be happy with a card and a hug, there are so many other ways to say thank you for the countless things she does for us all year. Personally, I’m a huge fan of the macaroni-noodle-necklace, but I don’t think I’d mind getting any of the fab gifts below (hint hint!).

1. The Gift of Scent
