11 Classy Gifts for Your Mom Who Loves Jackie Kennedy but Doesn't Own Any Pearls
Shopping for your mom is one of the funnest activities ever. She likes candles, hand creams, soaps, cozy blankets, and classic DVDs. She wishes you dressed a little more like Audrey Hepburn, but she appreciates a good pair of floral skinny jeans. She thinks Jackie Kennedy's style is the bees knees, and she's not averse to curling up in sweatpants to watch It's a Wonderful Life, bowl of peppermint ice cream in hand. Here's to your sweet mom, who forgets to moisturize her hands because she's busy catching up on your life, who loves lavender, rose, and gardenia, and who deserves something lovely this (and every) Christmas.
