Mother’s Day Gifts

If you’re anything like me you’re insane you have an entire Amazon Wish List just for pretty books. When I get bored I peruse the latest large hardcover picture book offerings and fill my imaginary cart with things I have no space for. Weird? Maybe. Useful? Definitely. Because hardcover books are lovely gifts and, whenever I have an occasion requiring a lovely gift, I just go to the list, pick the perfect book for the recipient of said gift, and Amazon Prime the crap out of it.

Perfect example of how useful my Pretty Book Wish List is: It’s 5 days before Mother’s Day and you don’t have a gift yet. Hey, that woman gave birth to you. And it probably sucked. So buy her a present.

If I want these then your mom would probably want them, too.

    I love the Flower Recipe book. I considered getting it for my mom, but then I DIYed a gift for her instead. Perhaps for Christmas.

    I love hardcover books too! I also just got “Decorate” from the library to test it out before purchasing and I love it!

Tell me what you think!
