I've been trying to think of what to get my mom for Mothers day lately. I used to try really hard to find the perfect gift, but realized it doesn't exist, there will always be the "what is this?" response or the gift will just vanish a few weeks later. I've recently come to the brilliant conclusion that it is best to go with something extremely simple yet elegant for Moms. The key is to not try so hard. The perfect example is the above black and white lacquered wood boxes lined with black felt. The uses are countless (photo box, stationary box, jewelry box) and the design is stylish and unfussy, so what's not to like? $55-$99 right here at Lille, a great online resource for Mother's Day.
