We asked our favorite moms to tell us their Picks, just like in the dearduck app, so we could curate perfect presents for them.

As an app dedicated to taking the guesswork out of gifting and deepening all of our relationships, we’re excited to be especially helpful on Mother’s Day (when gifting can go oh so wrong.) The fact is, every mom is different, and their gifts should be, too, which is where dearduck comes in. We asked some of our favorite moms to collaborate with us on choosing their Mother’s Day Picks.

There’s nothing that compares to that feeling of opening up the perfect present and feeling like someone totally “gets” you. It’s a moment of feeling seen, heard, and understood. And loved!
