Cracking me up!
I was trying to figure out what I should write about today and thought that Mother’s Day would be a good topic since it’s only 4 days away. I ran a search in Google for “Top Mother’s Day gifts” and the first article was from NYU Washington Square News titled “Top five gifts to avoid on Mother’s Day” I HAD to read this article!
Here is their list of No-No’s:
2. Vacuum Cleaner
3. Gym Membership
4. Anti-Wrinkle Cream
5. A Pet
Really, Anti-Wrinkle Cream? I’m sure there’s some guy out there who thinks that this would be a super thoughtful gift…just like a Gym Membership.
We always go to Mother’s Day Brunch with my Mom and family and have a great time and the kids give me and my mom presents they made at school or home (my daughter is into making jewelry) and we get flowers from the guys and cards. We don’t usually give presents but if I were to give my Mom a Hamster for Mother’s Day…she’d kill me – after we all stopped laughing of course.
The next Article I found was from AskMen.com listing their “Top 10 Mother’s Day Gift Ideas” – because ‘every man is some Mother’s Son’. Here’s their list:
#9 Candles (How about Some Scentsy Wickless Candles?)
#8 Gift card
#7 Gift basket
#6 Home spa treatment
#5 Home decor
#4 Sweet treats
#1 Massage and spa treatment
Of Course I’m going to point out that #9 is Candles but…when you get more creative and give the gift of Scentsy Wickless Candles to your Mom for Mother’s Day I think that this gift definitely rises up to at least #3. Scentsy is a great Mother’s Day Gift – that keeps on giving all year round. A Candle Warmer with a few wax candle bars that you think your Mom would love would be a great gift!
Personally, I have plenty of Scentsy so I don’t want my hubby and kids to give me any for Mother’s Day but…I’d totally love Gift idea #1 – a Massage and Spa Treatment! I don’t know any woman, mother or not, who doesn’t love the idea of a massage.
Shawn…if you’re reading this I hope you get the HINT! Love you!
Happy Mother’s Day to all of your wonderful Mom’s out there!
