Top 10 Gifts for the Moms in Your Life Let’s face it — we celebrate moms the entire month of May! And you don’t have to spend a lot of money to show all the moms in your life how much you care. Here are 10 things moms can really use and will appreciate: 5. Memory book. With today’s computer technology and online tools, it’s easier than ever to make a personalized book filled with photos of Mom’s favorite people. 1. Fuel card. Mom is a busy lady, so make it easy for her to get where she needs to go. Encourage her to visit to see how E15 (a 15 percent ethanol blend) is a money saver and to find the near- est E15 station. 6. Custom cell phone case. If she’s like most people today, Mom takes her cell phone everywhere. Check out the cool designs for cell phone cases, and pick one in Mom’s favorite color. Bonus points for unique designs or bling! 2. A great meal—that she doesn’t have to cook. Why not surprise her some Sunday with a simple brunch, complete with fresh fruit, juice, coffee, yogurt, and homemade Luscious Blueberry Cornbread Muffins? You’ll find the easy recipe on page 22. 7. Stemless wine glasses. Sometimes Mom just needs a little “me” time. Help her unwind with these low-maintenance wine glasses. 3. Décor featuring your family’s initial. Discount stores, craft stores, and more offer pillows, artwork, and countless home décor items featuring each let- ter of the alphabet. Find a fun item that Mom could use to personalize her living space. 4. Picture frames with prints. Take a favorite photo of you and Mom, print it, and present it to her in an attractive frame.

Select bubble bath, scented bath salts, scented candles, and some soft, new bath towels to make it easy for Mom to enjoy a little getaway, right at home. 10. A phone call. Few things are more personal — and welcome — than the sound of a loved one’s voice. Take time to call and tell her how much you love her! 21
