Around St. Helena for Dec. 4, 2014 _lowres

Stephanie Warren

Mom spends all year taking care of her family, so Mother’s Day is the perfect time to give her something that keeps her health and happiness a priority.

This isn’t the fanciest or most innovative suggestion, but for many mothers, a simple and heartfelt gift is far better than an expensive one. A nice bottle of wine, a delicious home-cooked meal and plenty of conversation make a great last-minute present.

If mom is the main dinner chef at home, treat her with some precious moments of relaxation while you stand over the hot stove preparing her favorite meal.
