What gift ideas list would be complete without La Mer? Especially when we're talking about your mother, who gave you life? Helping relieve her dried-out skin seems like a small compromise.

If Mom could use a little drying inspiration, a great accompaniment is The Dehydrator Bible, which Lesley Stockton (staff writer and author of our food-dehydrator guide) called “a good reference for newbies and seasoned food-moisture-suckers alike.”
