The perfect gift for mom? To her, it's probably "anything," but we know Mom deserves much better. Instead of (or in addition to) showering her with fragrant bouquets for Mother's Day why not give her a gift that keeps on giving—an artistic local class. Then again, if you must give a gift, there are some last-minute DC-area workshops to fulfill your gift-giving needs.
