Happy Mother's Day ... and swag!

By Lorna Barrett / Lorraine Bartlett / LL Bartlett

Mothers_day_bouquet Tomorrow is Mother's Day.  Teleflora thinks you should honor your mother with a big bouquet of flowers -- or maybe a dish garden.  (I'm partial to them myself, because cut flowers last a few days and a dish garden can last for years, reminding the recipient of the thoughtfulness of the gift-giver.)

Bonbons Russell Stover, Godiva, Lindt, and every other candy maker thinks you should remember Mom with a nice box of chocolates.  Aside from the gazillion calories, what's not to like?  It's delicious.

Of course, here on the Cozy Chicks, we're authors -- we want you to treat your Mom to the gift of reading.  And here are a few suggestions:

Deadly cliche Absolutely Postively Cat-lady-liar

Crafty Killing Beeswax Dandelion

Double knit

They're all available in paperback or as e reads on all your favorite chain and indepent bookstore web sites.

And now for a little swag.
