It's our favorite time of year again—Mother's Day! While this may seem like any other day to most people, for moms, this is the day for a bit of freedom. To luxuriously announce I want breakfast in bed
or decide to line up with the rest of the moms at the local breakfast joint wearing her favorite handbag or tote
. Mother's Day is one of the biggest days for going out for breakfast or lunch.
Along with breakfast comes a Mother's Day gift. But what to give the mom or wife in your life? Well, everyone's heard of Oprah's Favorite Things. We've come up with Pam's Favorite Gifts for Mother's Day
. Presents and handbags too sweet to resist.

Moms deserve a moment to get away from it all with a cup of tea. Away from the hustle and bustle of the household to relax. What a better way than elegant loose leaf tea from La Rue 1680.
Make it a complete experience with a unique tea set, and throw in these taste bud popping petits fours, and you'll be genuinely spoiling your mom.
Light Up Mom's Life With a Candle
Candles add a great touch to any home decor. If it's a Sea & Grass Mangosteen Candle, it's a candle and reusable as a glass for your favorite drink. We've collaborated with Purveyoroffragrance to create a scent reminiscent of Pam’s childhood island hopping in Thailand. Mangosteen is a popular fruit in Thailand that is full of peach, citrus, and sweetness. The seagrass wrap gives it an earthy feel that will make any mom relax.
Matching Photos for the Whole Family
