Mother's Day is coming up, which means the countdown is on to find the perfect gift! So, we called on a few of our favorite TV moms to help us choose the perfect gift since mothers always know best. And who better to tell us what to get than Daphne Maxwell Reid aka Aunt Viv from The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air!
"Mother's Day is the one day of the year I can gloat over the marvelous job I have done raising the children who called me 'Mom', or 'Step-Mom', or 'GrandMa', or 'Friend,'" Daphne shared with E!. "I had the best Mom in the world for an example. We were like sisters, and she was my best friend, confidant, informer, and teacher of so many of the 'hand arts' with which I was blessed including sewing, knitting, crocheting, embroidery, macrame, cooking, and decorating. She taught me by example, how to live a 'non-judgement-al' life, and how to love with all my heart."
"I love to receive gifts that are created by the giver, starting with pictures and cards that are hand drawn or painted from my little ones, and progressing to the poem written by my teenager who is expressing a feeling they wish to share. Other cherished gifts are the gifts of grandchildren of which I have three, each totally unique!"
