Eat the Worm.

Between Star Wars Day, Cinco de Mayo and Mother’s Day, there’s all kinds of things to celebrate in the coming week, be it with a new Darth Vader tattoo or a round of mezcal shots.

During all that revelry, though, don’t forget to buy your mom something nice. She did bring you into this world, after all. Here are a few things she might not totally hate.

And now that you’ve got one less thing on your to-do list, let’s keep up that momentum and knock off one more, specifically the one where you sit down and plan the week ahead.
