Mother's Day gift giving all about flowers, cards and restaurant brunches. And while a mimosa-soaked brunch is one of life's greatest treasures, moms might enjoy something a trifle more inspired and -- dare we say -- feminist this year. Because nothing says 'thanks for giving birth to me!' like an anti-patriarchy coffee mug.

Feminist dishware. Nothing like a little feminism to sweeten mom's morning coffee.
