Five Books To Gift For Mother's Day

This coming Sunday is not only Mother's Day, but it is also my husband's birthday, which naturally begs the question: who is supposed to make dinner that night??

Actually we've already decided to just make it together, but the combination of celebrations is kind of funny.  I think we're going to spend the day before celebrating just him and the day after celebrating just me, so that we both get a day to ourselves.  

To be honest, I've been so focused on preparing for my husband's birthday that I haven't thought much about Mother's Day.  So much so, that when he asked me if there was anything in particular I wanted for Mother's Day, I drew a complete blank.  Our conversation went something like this:

Hubs: "What would you like for Mother's Day?"
Me: ".........."
Hubs: "Do you have any ideas?"
Me: "........books?"
Hubs: "You can't have books for every holiday."
Me: "WHY NOT??!?"
Hubs: "Because then it's not special when you do get them!"
Me: "......A bookcase then?"
Hubs and I glance at each other suspiciously.

Needless to say, I have no idea what to expect come Sunday.  (Also, I feel I should mention that we usually don't have that many awkward pauses or suspicious glances in our conversations.)  If he does decide to go the book route, though, (which, let it be known, would be perfectly fine with me) here are a few that I would love to own:

Art books are so lovely.  This one especially.

Just. Look. At. That. Cover.

I've been itching to read this book ever since I first heard of it.

I used to live in Italy, and their leather journals really are something else.  Love this one from Barnes & Noble.

This book isn't necessarily very mom-ish, but I wants it, preciousssss.

Have you ever received or given a book that you loved for Mother's Day?  What other suggestions would you add?


  1. You guys are adorable :) I hope this weekend is lovely for you both!

    1. Haha, thanks LaShel! Hope you have a lovely weekend as well.

  2. That conversation is priceless. I think every book lover feels this way. Why can't we have books for every occasion? Have a great weekend.
