Is mom famous for her blossoming garden? The wonderfully warm Bees blanket by Finnish artist Klaus Haapaniemi is illustrated by a magical pattern depicting busy bees hard at work in the flower bed.

Marimekko's Ostjakki bathrobe is made from a cotton-linen blend and is decorated with an elegant pattern designed by Fujimo Ishimoto in 1983.

8. Care for the caregiver

Would mom like a moment? Yes they would.
