What mom wants for Mother’s Day

Istock

What Mom really wants for Mother’s Day: a long weekend at Canyon Ranch, laundry services for six months (a year, really, but that sounds greedy), and dinner with Ryan Gosling. What Mom will get for Mother’s Day: a sweet card from CVS, adorable handmade crafts from the kids, and a small box of Godiva Chocolates. Of course — of course! — the second, heartfelt list of goodies is appreciated by any mom. But that fantasy list . . . it’s looking pretty good, too. What to do? Compromise. Buy her a Mother’s Day gift (or two) that’s a bit elegant, a bit fun. Something that says spring is here, Mom, and you deserve to kick up your heels — while wearing breezy, sunny platform sandals. Or a sultry new scent. Because even though she’s a mom, she still enjoys being a woman.
