Fuzzy Slippers

I know, it sounds a little cheesy, but trust me. There is no woman who doesn't love a good pair of fuzzy slippers. Whether mom wears them around the house on a lazy Sunday morning, or while she kicks her feet up at the end of the night to read or watch TV, fuzzy slippers are a must-have. 

Pick a pair that matches moms personality. They don't have to be all pink and frilly. Find her favorite color, look for the comfiest sole you can find, and package them up with a bow.
