Mother's Day is less than two weeks away, and it's never too early to start planning a present that will stand out from the usual flowers, brunch, or spa treatment. May I suggest some home decor gift ideas?
This year, give mom the gift of decor that speaks to her personality, style, and interests. If she's a creative type who loves color and collectibles, try a piece of framed wall art or a unique keepsake box. Personalize the latter by tucking a few family photos inside.
