Mother’s Day Gift Ideas

By on

Well, ok,  it’s really just one IDEA.



If you’re searching for a book to get your mom or a mom this Mother’s Day, Bossypants is everything you’re looking for in one man-handed cover for the following reasons:

1. A hilariously perceptive collection of essays by a comrade and veteran in the  should-I-breast-feed and did-a-babysitter-just-clip-my-child’s-nails-too-short and can-I-manage-a-job-and-this-little-human school of life.

2. Mom doesn’t like reading? STILL WORKS. Get her the audio version. Tina Fey reads it herself, delivering every punch line with perfect Liz Lemon-esque sarcasm.

3.  It’s not just about being a mom. Because every mom needs a break from that role to remember she’s got a lot of other things going on.

4. The essay titled:  A Mother’s Prayer for Her Daughter. “Grant her a Rough Patch from twelve to seventeen. Let her draw horses and be interested in Barbies for much too long…”

5. Tina. Fey. Come on. We all love her.
