Mother's Day is quickly approaching, and procrastinating dads everywhere will congregate at their local grocery store that Sunday morning in search of a last-minute gift. But Mom deserves more than 11 half-wilted carnations and a Spanish greeting card intended for a Godmother. She might tell you that she doesn't want anything, but she deserves a little something for all she does. If you know a dad who needs a little help, there are some select Mother's Day gifts to tell dads to buy for mom this year.
You see how hard she works and everything she does for the family. Mom often goes without or puts things off in order for the kids to have more or do more. She always knows exactly where your brown leather belt is (two inches to the left of where you've been staring for the last 10 minutes.) She makes sure that all of the underwear is extracted from the pants, and that the earbuds are not in the jeans' pocket before running yet another load of laundry. Mom is the first out of bed, and the last to close her eyes at night.
Mom deserves something special. She deserves a gift that is thoughtful, unexpected, and stylish to boot. The following Mother's Day gift guide will be sure to wow her and make her feel special on this, well, special day.
