At its core, gifting is an act of connection, a way to express love, admiration, or gratitude. For this year’s celebration of the women we cherish in our lives, we gathered a list of ideas from some of our Mom friends on what they would like, big or small. It’s that time of the year to show our appreciation for the mothers, stepmothers, sisters, friends, grandmothers, aunts and teachers in our lives.
