Moms inspire works of art—and create them. They go to great lengths for their children, and help build the village it takes to raise them. They feed their families, and the rest of the city's, too. As if we needed a reason to celebrate them outside of the fact that they're ours.
Here are more than 75 of our favorite gifts for moms, whether you're looking for a present that says "you made me who I am," "I'm so glad we're in this together," or "I hope this helps you get a well-deserved millisecond to yourself."
