Mother’s Day is coming up, and this calls for a celebration of the
women who have shaped us into the semi-responsible, adult blobs we are. Sure,
you could pamper mom with a traditional breakfast-in-bed or some relaxing time
away at a spa. But why not give Mom a day to remember with more unique Mother’s
Day gifts? Here are some ideas for personal, one-of-a-kind presents that’ll
have your mom saying, “You shouldn’t have. Really.”
How can you pay Mom back for all the things she did for you in your
formative years? Glad you asked, rhetorical question! A coupon book is the
perfect way to acknowledge all the things your mom did for you while
simultaneously returning the favor. Want to thank mom for training you not to
literally poop your pants? Give her a coupon that’s good for one adult diaper
change! Grateful for all the meals she provided for you, even through your
pickiest phases? Say “thanks” with a dinner voucher to be redeemed for one
homemade meal of grapes cut into fourths and peas you’ve hand-mashed! You could
even give her some fun awards, if you are into that sort of thing.
Her Favorite Flowers In A Pot Labeled “Grandchildren”
Perfect for any mom who can’t wait for you to have kids, even
though you’re still trying to figure out how to keep yourself alive! Now, your
mom can shower her love on her “grandbabies” without you having to have any
actual human children. Also, peonies smell way better than a toddler.
Full Access To Your Facebook Profile For The Day
Whether it’s making public all those photos from your first year
of college, adding her to the list of people who can see your political posts,
or accepting her friend request in the first place, giving your mom free reign
over your Facebook is truly a gift she’ll never forget, or rather unsee. Ever.
Personalized Office Supplies
Great for the mom-on-the-go! Give Mom a gift she’ll actually use
with a fun, personal twist. She’ll definitely think of you every time she grabs
a rubber band that says “Sorry 4 the STRETCH marks” or double-sided tape
labeled “Wish your advice to not get that tattoo would have STUCK better” or a
pencil that says “I only talk about you in therapy a little.”
24 Hours To Herself In The Bathroom
It’s never too late to make up for lost time. Let Mom enjoy a
little peace and quiet in the bathroom. It’s the least you can do after never
leaving her alone for one friggin second for 18+ years.
However you celebrate your mom on Mother’s Day, be sure to do it
with love. Oops, I meant alcohol. Just give your mom alcohol.
