Etsy Best Bets: Mother's Day Gifts

Mother's Day will be upon us soon (Sunday, May 11th, 2014 for those not in the know). It's the day where you get to show Mom just exactly how much you appreciate and love her. Mostly, you could do that through actions and words but a little gift doesn't hurt to sweeten the pot. ;)  

I've combed through some of my favorite Etsy items to bring you a gift list for the Mom in your life. Whether she's a book lover, a fitness guru, the outdoorsy type, etc, there is a gift on this list for your mom. 

And if all else fails, there's always an Etsy gift certificate, right?
