So you're either are a mom, have a mom, or know a lot of moms who love wine. Here’s a non-exhaustive list of moms by personality type--and wine-related gifts for each.
• Crafty Mom
If she can’t get enough wine or arts and crafts, then a perfect gift this Mother’s Day is a do-it-yourself party tray or corkboard made of wine corks. Make one for mom (which a crafty mom will surely appreciate) by following these steps-- or buy her a kit to make her own. Wine cork trivets start at $19.95 with large wine cork platters for over $100. Find them here.
• (Too) Real Housewife Mom
Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice, has written a cookbook called Fabulicious and created a new peach-flavored sparkling wine called the Fabellini ($18). If the mom in your life secretly loves the Real Housewives, she should surely get a kick out of both gifts this Mother’s Day. Find them here.
