Happy Mother’s Day to everyone who deserves this particular holiday greeting. While I’m not a big fan of this Hallmark™ holiday — an excuse for companies to sell stuff including cards, flowers, and jewelry — I still take time to consider all that my mother has done for me. Thanks, Mom!

Check those links above for alternatives to the traditional Hallmark, 1-800-FLOWERS, FTD, Zales and Tiffany and Co. options for gifts of the specified types.
