Macaroni necklaces. Gift cards. Coupon books. Flowers. While we firmly believe that "it's the thought that counts," we've all been a little guilty of giving a Mother’s Day gift that was less than unique. There's still time to break the cycle. We polled our Editor community for the presents that moms really want this May. If you’re looking for something that will really knock mom’s socks off, read on for unique, handpicked Swears for all types of mamas.
