For the mom that makes everyone sweaters, scarves and mittens for Christmas, buy:
enough buttery soft cashmere yarn to make herself something special.
Or you...if she wants...just sayin'.
Cricket Cashmere Yarn, $34, Anzula,
For the mom that keeps her coffee pot running all day long, buy:
a milk frother.
Not only will it make her AM brew (and afternoon pick-me-up, er, second afternoon pick-me-up and after-dinner decaf) feel all café-made and fancy-like, but maybe all the extra milk means less caffiene? So it's healthy!
