  1. Your gift ideas cover such a vast scope of interests. Thanks for the ideas! My all-time best book recommendation is ?The Gift of an Ordinary Day? by Katrina Kenison, and I think it makes a brilliant Mother's Day gift for a sister or friend with a young family. I can honestly say that this mother?s memoir has left a lasting impression on me and so many of my friends as we muddle through life parenting our young children. I find myself picking it up again and again when I feel like I am just speeding through life, and I want to get back to being more centered and mindful. A favourite quote is, ?time rushes on , whether we pay it any heed or not ? and I remind myself : The life we have right here, right now, is the best life there is.?
