She’s young at heart and always impeccably turned out. Likes: rosy cheeks, watercolours and a cup of sweet tea. Dislikes: chipped nails, leggings as pants and reality TV. A little frilly, but never frivolous, the classically feminine mom deserves a treat that she wouldn’t buy for herself—such as a pair of strappy pastel heels, a touchably soft printed scarf or a golden bangle. Keep the palette light with candied almond hues and touches of gold or silver for a gift that’s as sweet as she is.
