A Mother’s Day Gift Guide

The NightingaleMother’s Day is this weekend, and picking out something to give to the woman that taught you everything can be stressful. But, we’re here for you. We can’t help you make the perfect brunch, but we can point you in the right gift direction. Here are five great audiobooks that are sure to please.

The Nightingale // Kristin Hannah – Mom will love Kristin Hannah’s touching historical fiction about two sisters in German-occupied war-torn France. It’s an epic tale of survival, love, and freedom. Polly Stone’s narration makes you feel like you’re right in the middle of it all.

Every 15 Minutes // Lisa Scottoline – This latest thriller about a sociopath on the loose from New York Times bestseller Lisa Scottoline will hook mom immediately. Plus she’ll love that it’s expertly narrated by George Newbern, of “Father of the Bride” and “Scandal” fame.

Headscarves and Hymens // Mona Eltahawy – Moms with an interest in politics will be drawn to Egyptian journalist Mona Eltahawy’s manifesto decrying misogyny in the Arab world. Narrated by the Mona herself, it’s impossible to ignore her passion.

O’s Little Book of Happiness // The Editors of O, The Oprah Magazine – If your mom’s a fan of Oprah (and who isn’t?), she’ll appreciate this inspirational collection of essays that have appeared in O, The Oprah Magazine. The multicast brings to life the words of the great writers included, who together share insightful wisdom, practical advice, and engaging stories.

Unforgettable // Scott Simon – Perhaps less of a gift for mom, Unforgettable is perfect for anyone who has recently lost their mother. NPR host Scott Simon narrates this spirited and moving tribute to his mother’s remarkable life and graceful death.
