Face the facts, folks. Your mom is cool. She knows she's cool and she knows that you know she's cool.

She knew who Gloria Steinem was before abortion was legal and fought for all the important stuff first so you world have a better place to live. And even if she didn't, she made your PB & J's and kissed your scraped elbows. And if she didn't do that either, well, your sister or best friend is doing that stuff for her babies and she deserves a cool present. Making (or raising) people ain't easy, y'all.

Here are 10 handmade, thoughtful items found on Etsy.com that mamas of all ages would be tearfully delighted to receive from the best kids in the world.
