Well....Mother's Day is coming super fast, it's next weekend. So here's a few of my personal picks for that amazing woman in your life. I'm going to try to include links to my favorites so you can easily find them and get them.
Books...of course! I'm always a big fan of books. These are a few of my favorites from the last little bit and a few that I haven't had a chance to read yet, but that would be awesome gifts.
Once There Was a Mom by Emily Watts: This one is kind of Deseret Books Mother's Day specific book for the year. It looks like a great book, I don't think you can go wrong with it.

I have a bunch that I've read and reviewed lately that would be fabulous gifts, so I'll just link to my review and you can find what I thought and product links there. Chance for Home by Traci Hunter Abramson, Defiance by A.L. Sowards, An Unseen Angel by Alissa Parker, Miss Whitaker Opens Her Heart by Jennifer Moore, The Vicar's Daughter by Josi Kilpack. Also any book by Cami Checketts, Lucy McConnell, or Cindy Hogan.
Or you could spring for a Deseret Bookshelf Plus membership and give her the gift of reading/listening for the whole year!
Chocolate...you can't go wrong with chocolate for most women! I LOVE any of the chocolates from Mrs Call's candy company, my personal favorite are the chocolate dipped Oreos, but you can't go wrong with any of the choices.
I also love Utah Truffles. Fun fact about these, you can get them for free from Seagull Book if you watch for the coupons they send out, either in local mailers or in their own catalogs. Our ward has passed these out for Mother's Day the last several years and they are amazing. My personal favorite is the mint milk chocolate. Strange, because usually I prefer dark chocolate.
Or you could get her Eclairs from Dick's Market's famous bakery. I LOVE their Eclairs! My mother-in-law has made these for the women in our family the last several years for Mother's Day (okay, she lets the guys eat them too!). They are a family favorite. I actually tried to make them myself last Mother's Day when she was on a mission, and it was harder than I would have thought.
If you want to make her a treat, I highly suggest either these Copycat Chili's Molten Lava cakes from ohsweetbasil.com. Or this amazing Chocolate Mousse Torte from melskitchencafe.com. I've made them both and they are both amazing and not really that hard to make.
I made these for our Family Home Evening treat last week and they were met with rave reviews from our family. I'm still hiding the leftovers in the freezer...we'll see how many of those I decide that I can share with the family! :)
And if the special woman in your life enjoys scrapbooking, you could check out any of the tools that Becky Higgins LLC has out there. I know that I, for one, am in desperate need of checking out her Project Life app to make it easier to print my pictures that I'm constantly taking on my phone. And the wrapping paper looks so awesome!
There's my two cents on gifts for the Mother's in your life!
