Gift Etiquette: What NOT To Give Mom For Mother’s Day

May 9, 2009

Happy Mother’s Day to all you mothers, and not to the “Muthers”, if you know what I mean.

What do you want for Mother’s day?

  • A card?
  • A Rose or Bouquet of Roses?
  • Candy?
  • Stuffed Bears?

I would think of giving  something a bit more creative, not just another batch of Valentine’s Day leftovers.

What about a crafty giftlike…

  • An updated scrapbook
  • Handmade glass bead jewelry
  • A home made knitted shawl
  • A gift set of coffee and teas that you select

Well, those are some nice ideas, but this is not supposed to be a cutie-poo-poo post.  This post is a warning!  Stay away from buying the following unless your mama has already requested them.

Irons, vacuum cleaners and toasters are not on this list because you already know not to buy them unless requested.

If you wanna be disowned daughter for Mother’s Day, then buy the flollowing:

1.  If your mom has said, “I do need to lose a few pounds.”  Let her make take care of that.  Getting her Tae Bo DVD’s just says, “Mama, you’re right.  Your butt is soo big.”

2.  Pass on the Snuggie!  She’ll look like a nun or she’ll regift it to someone for Christmas.


3.  Unless she asks for it, spare her the Disney doo-dads.

5.  Ugly clothes or shoes.  What looks good to you may look horrific to her.
