Happy Mother’s Day

This weekend is Mother’s Day.  What?  You forgot?  Told your wife she’s not your mother?  Shame on you!  Make sure you get that wonderful woman in your life something special.  Here are some ideas for the last minute lucys:

  1. Have Fun - Do Good has a list of Do Good Mother’s Day Gifts and Donation Ideas.
  2. Flowers - let’s be honest - they die (my husband likes to point that out), but mom’s love ‘em.  They look pretty, they smell nice and they brighten any room AND her day.  And unless your 7-11 has a great partnership with FTD, get your ass to the florist or at least a grocery store with a nice floral department.
  3. Chocolates - this could go either way.  If Mom is on Weight Watchers, you might want to go with #2.  Flowers won’t make her butt bigger or ruin her weigh-in.  But, if you’ve got one of those skinny-minny I want to feed her a donut moms, go for Chocolates - GOOD chocolates.  Hershey’s doesn’t cut it on Mother’s Day (unless you are doing something cute with their Hugs & Kisses).
  4.  BAKE  - Moms know how to appreciate.  Even if your cookies or brownies suck, your mom will love them (unless she’s my mom - she’ll love the thought, but still make sure you know they sucked and tell you to try a different recipe next time!)
  5. CRAFT - Lottery Tickets plus Flower Pot = KICK ASS MOTHER’S DAY GIFT.  And who doesn’t want a chance to win a million bucks?!
  6. Gift Certificates - You think they are impersonal - we think they are the bomb!  Mani/Pedis, Hair Salons, Itunes, Barnes & Noble - just pick something your mom likes - no one likes getting a gift certificate to the book store when you hate to read!
  7. ASK - when in doubt, ask your mom what she’d like for Mother’s Day.  We live in a society where when most people need something, they go out and buy it.  But, maybe - just maybe, there’s been something mom’s been eyeing, but hasn’t splurged on yet or maybe she’d just like to go to the diner instead of getting some useless crap.  Remember - she carried your cute, little, chubby ass for 9 months (or close to it), possibly went through hours of hard labor or surgery to get out out safe and healthy, got up in the middle of the night when you were sick, cold, or just being a pain in the ass, was peed on, thrown up on and probably caught every sickness you ever had, just twice as bad.  She deserves to have a nice day.
