If your mother is a voracious reader like mine then she probably already owns a Kindle or a Nook. Which is why a beautiful, tactile book makes such a cool gift. A well-executed coffee table book invites conversation and breathes life into a room. And if the book reflects the passion of the recipient it will have a lot more longevity than a flower bouquet. Is your Mom into gardening, food, ballet, hockey, cats, travel, architecture, cars, politics, music, cartoons… big butts? Have fun hunting in your local, independent bookstore for the perfect treasure. Lovingly inscribe and date the inside cover and you’ll have a happy mamma this Sunday.
Here are some stunning coffee table books – a few from my own collection and others I’m sure many Moms would love to own. I’m not linking these images to an online store as I normally do because I’m hoping you’ll shop local this year. I think Amazon is surviving this economy just fine, wouldn’t you agree?
