Mother's Day is coming up in about two weeks, and we know a lot of you are still twiddling your thumbs before conceding to give your mom a bar of soap. Stop right there! Don't you think you're mom, the best mom in the world, deserves something a little more thoughtful and creative for Mother's Day?
Like we've said before, your mom is the best mom in the world and therefore needs something that identifies her as such (other than her well-brought-up children, of course). What about a trophy? This will be something she can sit on her living room table and rub in all her guests' faces.
If your mom is like our moms, she needs her piping hot cup of joe to prepare for the fresh hell her kids present her with each day. But that idea has been done before. Let's liven her mug up a bit with a hot biker chick to help her embrace her wild side.
If you're gonna be a “non-creative Nancy” and settle for a bar of soap that screams, “I waited till the last minute to get your Mother's Day gift,” at least make it a cool bar of soap. Sweet Bee Honey & Crafts make this mouthwatering product that looks like a honeycomb you can actually eat. That's because it is actual honeycomb. Just don't eat it.
A cookbook may not be that creative at first glance, but the way you present it definitely is. One, if your mom hates cooking, you say this is for your dad to teach him how to cook. And two, if your mom loves cooking, you say this is for your dad so he can make a romantic meal. See? It's a win-win situation. Either way it gets dad off the couch and into the kitchen.
For all those moms who love working with their hands in the kitchen and making the most delicious culinary creations ever, chances are their aprons are covered in food stains. It's time for an upgrade, and this is one apron she'll love to put on for years to come.
There's nothing better than enjoying a glass of wine in the comfort of your own home, and trust us, your mom is gonna need one after a long day. But you don't need to have children to be a wino. Just as long as you're the mother of something (a puppy, perhaps), you deserve a nice wine glass for Mother's Day.
For all the baseball-loving moms out there, this one's for you. Sports stadiums are filthy places and, let's be honest, the best mom in the world can't sit on just anything. She needs to feel like a queen. For this Mother's Day, get her a pair of stadium seats just for her so that she feels like a real V.I.P.
If she cooks it, you have to eat it. If she buys it, you have to wear it. And if she says no, you're not allowed to ask why. These are just some of the rules every mother abides by, and she'll love you more for immortalizing them all with a nice wooden sign she can simply point to when she's tired of repeating them.
For New Mommies — 'Mad Men'-Style Maternity Clothes
Don't forget about all those soon-to-be-moms. They need things too, and that's probably maternity clothes. We've found the perfect outfit for any almost-mommies with a fascination for 'Mad Men.' (Actually, this vintage set is a little bit before the 1960s scene, but we'll just pretend.)
And for the Geek Moms Out There… a Robot!
A mom's job is never ending, so why not give her a personalized robot to help her out and blast people that annoy her. Granted this one isn't animated, but it looks just like Optimus Prime from 'Transformers' and would be great for all those movie-buff/secretly nerdy mothers of the world.
