For the foodie (and pop-culture-savvy) mom, how about a sassy embroidered dish towel? Or sign yourself and your mom up for a cooking class or sample-filled author reading at Book Larder. Molly Wizenberg, of Orangette and Delancey Pizza, has an upcoming author reading of her new memoir Delancey. Eastern Washington moms can take cooking classes at the Kitchen Engine or Williams-Sonoma in Spokane.



The gift of time

Mother's DayIf the Mom on your list has young children, try giving the gift of a little time off. Take her little ones to the playground for a few hours, babysit so she can have a date night (or girl’s night), or schedule a message or spa day for her.
