Drew Sidora gave The Real Housewives of Atlanta fans what they wanted during the Season 13 finale: drama. However, her fellow Housewives weren't satisfied with Drew's gift selection for the cast's Christmas exchange. Drew took the comedic route with her choices, while the other ladies made the most of the $1K spending limit. Drew submitted a wig she had previously worn, a donation to the Humane Society, and a cassette tape with a recorded telephone conversation. Although Drew shared the gift of shade with her co-stars, she's much more on-point with her Mother's Day present picks.

The Atlanta Housewife told E!, "My best advice for gift giving is to know the person's likes and dislikes, if possible, when choosing a gift. I like to pick out gifts that are a little unexpected, but a welcomed surprise. It's always nice to buy something for your mother or auntie, a gift that she wouldn't buy herself. That's the best gift of all!" 

The mom of three shared, "My favorite part about celebrating Mother's Day is the universality of honoring motherhood – that is, the struggles, the sacrifices, the joys, the highs and the lows of motherhood is such a shared experience. It's a special day for women to take a bow for birthing, raising and/or mentoring another human being on this planet, and leaving an impact on another person's life. "

She added, "On a personal note, I love celebrating Mother's Day because  it's so close to my birthday (May 1). So, I feel like I get a double dose of love and pampering from [husband] Ralph [Pittman] and the kids."

Maison Francis Kurkdjian Baccarat Rouge 540 Eau de Parfum

"It's nice to surprise your mom or auntie with either a new fragrance or a box set of her signature scent. Although picking a perfume can be very personal, it's always satisfying to add to a person's perfume collection because it brings delight to the senses."
