10 Well-Vetted Mother's Day Gift Options for Sons.

You've got two weeks to find a gift for that special lady in your life—Mother's Day is May 13th. But instead of thinking of her as the mom to whom you owe a phone call, think of her as an actual person. Is she the type of woman who appreciates a nice bottle of champagne? Or a simple but elegantly scented French candle? Does she, like so many women, adore anything in that particular shade of Tiffany blue? The key is to think of the way she lives and then find something that would suit her. An item that'd she'd get actual use out of, or even better, use up entirely. Like an indulgent beauty product or flowers. Herewith, a few well-vetted suggestions.
