Let me put it to you bluntly. It’s not always the thought that counts. Below, I offer you 10 bad ideas for Mother’s Day gifts.
(Thankfully, if you bought any of these, you still have time to return them.)
1. A bouquet of dead flowers
2. An ant farm
3. Chocolates (left over from Christmas)
4. Hair dye
5. Gym membership
6. A third crock pot
7. Cleaning supplies
8. Anti-wrinkle cream
9. A grill
10. A hamster (dead or alive)
Since I would hate to leave you on a negative note, (such as you might expect if you give your mom a gift card to the dentist) please consider this bit of advice from Naomi Hodge when I asked her about the best Mother’s Day gift she’s ever received:
“My favourite Mother’s Day gift that I’ve been given is the homemade cards my daughters make. I love that they put so much effort into them.”
Bottom line, Friends. Keep it heartfelt. Keep it simple.
