Aura Carver WiFi Digital Picture Frame


Aura Carver WiFi Digital Picture Frame

“I recently got this digital picture frame for my mom, and she loved it so much, she actually shed a tear when she opened it. I preloaded it with photos from me and my sisters so there were already sweet memories on it right out of the box. I don’t live near my mom, so I love that I can easily add photos for her from my phone even from 2,000 miles away.” – Hannah Freedman, Associate Director Growth & Content Strategy

TOMS Classic Alpargata


Toms Classic Alpargata

“I would add to her Toms collection with a pair of Classic Alpargata shoes. We both love that the shoes are so comfortable after you break them in, and the canvas exterior makes them perfect for both spring and summer. Plus, you can buy a pair in neutral and bright colors that range from natural to peach in standard whole and half sizes (5 to 12).” – Carly Totten, Senior Commerce Writer

The Bouqs Co. Mother's Day Roses

The books came out so beautifully, and I can’t wait to see their reactions!” – Brittney Morgan, Editorial Director, Commerce

Keenray Bucket Towel Warmers


Keenray Bucket Towel Warmer

“My mother-in-law recently renovated her bathroom, and wanting to pamper her without turning to the typical spa-day gift cards, I decided on a towel warmer. She has told me multiple times how much she loves stepping out of the shower and having a freshly warmed towel ready. It has turned her bathroom into a spa-like sanctuary.” – Gabriela Izquierdo, Commerce Writer
