I’m not sure if you know or not, Savvy Readers, but Mother’s Day is THIS Sunday! Panicking yet? I know I sure am… While we’re firm believers that books make the perfect gift for every occasion, we also know that moms are super, super busy! So, without further ado, here are a few gift books to consider picking up for those busy moms out there that might not have a lot of time to read!
For the photography-loving mom:
Canada by Collins Canada
A stunning portrait of Canada from coast-to-coast, Canada features more than 300 spectacular images from award-winning photographers and captures the rugged beauty of the country in a timeless and beautiful treasury.
For the magician-in-the-kitchen mom:
No kitchen is complete without a few Jamie Oliver cookbooks, right? Complete with easy-to-learn recipes and beautiful photographs, both of these books are perfect for the mom who loves to cook!
For the mom who makes a house a home:
Moms have an uncanny ability to make a house a home. Whether it’s a beautifully photographed cookbook or a stunningly designed coffee table book like Homebody or Live Happy, these books are sure to leave your mom inspired and motivated.
For the music-loving mom:
There have been a lot of beautiful books by popular musicians coming out recently, and these two, while very different, are just two of the very best that we’ve come across! In Hindsight, observations and personal anecdotes are combined with hundreds of images from his personal collection that range from his early years to the present, complete with discussions of his career and inspirational ideas for all the various types of artists out there. In Geddy Lee’s Big Beautiful Book of Bass, the legendary RUSH frontman goes through his entire collection of vintage bass guitars to weave a history of the bass guitar around the globe. So, whether you mom’s a fan of pop music, likes to rock out to “Tom Sawyer”, or simply has a passion for creating, you might want to check out some of these coffee table books by artists!
For the Potterhead moms:
Does your mom love Harry Potter as much as mine does? Then these are two beautifully designed books that you should definitely consider adding to her collection! Complete with stunning photographs and all the behind-the-scenes content a Potterhead could ever want, these are two must-have books for any Potter fan out there!
For the mom who works far too hard:
The Little Book of Sloth Philosophy by Jennifer McCartney
Let’s face the truth, Savvy Readers. Moms work really hard. Like, really, really, really hard. Help mom relax and unwind with this adorable (yet entirely practical!) gift book. Instead of pressuring us to be happier and live better, The Little Book of Sloth Philosophy takes a page from one of nature’s cutest creations – the sloth – to show us how a take-it-slow approach to life can help us unwind and relax a little more in our lives. And if anyone deserves to put their feet up for a little while, it’s our moms!
