Moms: We’ve all got one, one way or another. For some, it’s a complicated or distant relationship. For others, it’s the stuff of Hallmark movies or at the very least some version of Lady Bird. And, of course, some are now mothers themselves, unspooling the threads of how to raise a human to be the kind of person they want to see in the world.
If you’re celebrating Mother’s Day this May, we want to help you get out of your “what do I get her?” rut. Whether it’s putting in a request for your own gifts or buying for the mother figure in your life, we’ve added a cosmic twist to our suggestions: We’ve based them on mom’s zodiac sign.
For each sign, we’ve got a gift idea, a delicious cocktail to whip up for brunch (or breakfast in bed) and a fun activity to get out of the house and into the world with the people you love.
So figure out what mom’s zodiac sign is (or have her birthday handy) and dive into our best suggestions for every star sign. Happy Mother’s Day, moms.
