What's a "cool mom?" When we think of the term, Amy Poehler's iconic line from the movie "Mean Girls" comes to mind.
"I'm not like a regular mom, I'm a cool mom."
But the truth is, most of the moms we know are pretty cool people — strong, funny women who work hard to raise little people to be kind humans.
And, they all deserve cool Mother's Day gifts.
So, these gift ideas are for the cool mamas. Whether they're coffee lovers or nap takers, we've rounded up some amazing gifts that say "Thanks for being cool, Mom."
