Remember when you would make macaroni necklaces and pick flowers from the backyard for Mother's Day? Your mom would gush over them, say they were the most special gifts she's ever received, and you'd pat yourself on the back for a job well done. It's the thought that counts, you'd remind yourself in high school and college, as you gave her a $3 card, and she'd understand because you didn't have much money. Yeaaah, well, that doesn't fly anymore.
Now, you really ought to put some effort into your gift. Picking out a fragrance for someone else is tough, and most people will advise against it, but hear us out: When you nail it, when you find the one that'll be her signature for years to come, all those times you didn't call when you promised you would, or said you couldn't afford a present as you showed up in a new dress, will be erased.
And you will nail it, because the perfect scents for every (weirdly specific) type of mom are just a few clicks away.
