Still need a gift for the mom in your life? I just so happen to have a few ideas.
I'm a notorious over-researcher when it comes to gift giving, so in honor of Mother's Day this weekend, I offer you this tediously prepared list for all of the moms out there who appreciate/love/obsess over modern architecture and design as much as I do. Fingers crossed that the other half of claass HAUS is paying close attention.

This architectural historian cannot stop thinking about buildings, food, and that vintage rug she found online.
