With Mother's Day just a few days away, the clocking is ticking to find a gift that will wow the mother figure in your life. Thankfully, the talented Lorraine Toussaint is here to lend her gifting expertise just in time for the big day!
"Being a mother means I quietly belong to one of the best kept secret societies ever created," the Concrete Cowboy star explained to E!. "The quality and capacity of the love my daughter has unlocked, defies description and explanation. As mothers, we see each other on playgrounds, in supermarkets, at the pediatricians and at the zoo. We represent at PTA meetings, board meetings, game nights, and freedom fights. We reach across the lonely divide, drawing strength from each other in this fierce exclusive love for our children. A mothers love defies reason, bypassing the brain, vibrating your bones, echoing through your cells. It is the aspect of myself I cherish most."
From statement face masks and stunning jewelry to decadent chocolate truffles, Lorraine's gift ideas will be appreciated by any mom.
"This is a total cliché but the best gifts I have ever gotten on Mother's Day are the preverbal 'breakfast in bed' and 'time.' Oh, just the thought of a day, and dare I say an entire night, in my home…alone, makes me weak in the knees," the star revealed to us. "That sounds heavenly. We also always appreciate anything handmade from our children."
