As a mother (I have two children) I´m in charge for 365 days, to make the little ones life nice and beautiful. Actually, I do not need a gift and yet I am thrilled when the two sweeties tinker something beautiful, pick some flowers, cover the breakfast table or write a nice card. On Mother’s Day we always do calmly something together, because familytime is for me the greatest. For all those who are looking for a suitable gift for Mom, I once put together my personal, sustainable favorites.
