Moms do so much for us. And while we like to think we show them appreciation throughout the year, most of us could manage to do a little more — like surprise them with some extra love on holidays.
For Valentine's Day, it's nice to treat your mom to a little extra TLC. But rather than giving her a boring old bouquet that you just picked up at the farmer’s market, consider gifting her one of these Valentine's Day gifts that go beyond flowers. And believe us, she'll likely appreciate the extra thoughtfulness you put into getting her a unique Valentine's Day gift this year.
Whether you're a mom and are looking for ways to spoil yourself (which we support!) or you want to gift your own mom or friend who is a mom something special for Valentine's Day, we have rounded-up gifts that are sure to wow. For the mom who enjoys cooking or just likes to dress cozy, we have all of the gifts to make her feel loved this Valentine's Day.
