Did your mother fall in love with Pokemon GO when it came out? Mine did—she’d spend hours running around and catching new Pokemon for her collection. She may not be out and about playing it much anymore, but I feel confident she’d love having a Nintendo Switch, the easy-to-use console that allows her to play the suite of Mario games and reviewer-favorite Animal Crossing. She can opt for a full system that she can play with others, or the single-user Nintendo Switch Lite that she can keep all to herself.
Mothers come in all shapes and sizes and ages and attitudes. Some moms run marathons, others run companies, and still others run around town, ferrying offspring from their violin lessons to tae kwon do classes to softball practice. Some still have a house full of kids; others are now empty nesters. But these mothers all have something in common: They have at least one person (be it a child, a co-parent, or an admirer) who owes them a great big thank-you, coupled with a thoughtful gift, for everything they do. Perhaps that person is you? If so, it’s time to get on it.
