What's the most flattering gift a young man can purchase for his bigger-than-life mother? A gift of the spirit.

As Cher said in her Architectural Digest interview a few years back, "I am a Buddhist — who should always be in after-school detention." 

She is also a big Pema Chödrön fan. So instead of a giant silver Chrome Hearts Buddha or a custom Pratesi Zafu and Zabuton, flatter her intelligence with this great recent CD collection: Awakening Love: Teachings and Practices to Cultivate a Limitless Heart by Pema Chödrön. It's eight CDs (nine hours, eight minutes), $69.95 (and be sure to make a copy for your iPod).
