Let's just say the super-picky gene that always keeps us on the lookout for cool stuff and excellent steals came from somewhere. That somewhere being the mother of all gift-giving critics: Mom. She taught us early on that it's really never okay to just swing by Target for a picture frame. No matter who it is (you get our drift). So, in honor of pleasing the good women that still make birthdays, barbecues, and family brawls that much more memorable, we've gone the extra mile to deliver the most personalized Mother's Day Gift Guide to date. DIY moms? We've got you covered. Style-obsessed mom? You're in good hands. With six categories and 24 super-thoughtful prezzies to pick from, we're sure this Mother's Day will be one she won't soon forget. Just throw in a little quality time and some Zinfandel and you're golden.
