Mother's Day is just around the corner, and if you're thinking another year of flowers and a greeting card is going to do the trick? You're wrong. Sure, it can be hard to shop for your mom, especially on Mother's Day. How do you show her how much you care? How do you find a gift that's personal but not pithy? How do you avoid getting her the same exact thing your siblings are getting her? Instead of focusing on sentiment, why not focus on finding a funny mother's day gift for the lovely lady that brought you into this world?
It doesn't have to be slapstick funny. It doesn't even have to be a gag gift. It can be equal parts sentimental and silly. I know, I know, I'm making you think about a gift that you easily could've crossed off the list 20 minutes ago. But instead of treating this like a chore, why not treat it as a game? Challenge accepted. Think back on the years you've spent together, and start your search. There are plenty of gifts out there to be personalized, and plenty of gifts out there that will make your mother burst out into laughter, and then cry a sentimental tear or two. Make your gift an experience this Mother's Day, and you'll win the golden child award. (Just don't tell your mom I said that.)
