-West Coast Editor :
Do super heros really exist? Of course they do. Whether we call her Mother, Mom, Mama or even Mum. She is a force of nature – giver of unconditional love, enforcer of the house rules, mistress of time schedules and all around badass when she needs to be…I think we’d all agree Superman has nothing close to the power of “the Mom voice”.
Mother’s Day is our time to remind this amazing person just how much we respect and appreciate all the things she does for us. From expecting to grand matriarch, our editors have put together some of our favs for this year. (Editor’s note: while no one can put a price on your Mother’s love, we understand it can be challenging times for some of us. For this reason, the SLH team has made a conscious effort to include gifts of all price ranges. We hope you find something here that you, and your Mom, will love)…
