Mother’s Day Gift Guide
by Christina Cerio
What better way to say, “Hey Mom, I appreciate you” than a book? We are a little biased, but fully believe that books are the best gifts. Bonus: Mom might pass the books on to you after she’s done reading. These are the books we think will bring out a joyous sparkle in your mom’s eyes:
The Feminism Lives! Bundle—Sady Doyle and Jessa Crispin are two of the most urgent and admired voices in feminism today. Their two books, bundled at $22, offer a terrific breadth of feminist thought, and some of the smartest, funniest, most trenchant criticism out there. All the yes. Save $11.
The Art of the Novella Subscription Series—Every month, we select two titles from our award-winning series and send them to you in either print or digital (Kindle, EPUB, or PDF) form—or both, if you so choose.
Julia Child: The Last Interview—follows the life of the beloved chef. In this volume of carefully selected interviews, Child’s charm, guile, and no-nonsense advice are on full, irresistibly delicious display. Perfect for aspiring home chefs, francophiles, foodies and the food network-obsessed. Our friends at Powerhouse Books even added it to their Mother’s Day display.
The Mueller Report—because a writer for The Cut recently speculated that Mueller Report sales could be attributed to Father’s Day sales. Umm.. Father’s Day is in June and mothers like to read about the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election too! Who buys gifts that far ahead of time anyways? Certainly not you, reader, since Mother’s Day is only a few days away and here you are looking at a gift guide.
I Would Prefer Not To tote—for all the moms that think Mother’s Day is a silly Hallmark holiday and would prefer not to celebrate. Help them protest the holiday in fashion.
