Avoid These Mother’s Day Gift Faux Pas!
You better be thinking about Mother’s Day!
I’m sure you know it’s Sunday, as in THIS Sunday.
I was going to mention a few ideas on what to get her for Mother’s Day, (based on my vast expertise on the topic), but instead, I’ve made a short list of WHAT NOT to get her.
DO NOT Buy Her a Gift Card.
- She’ll never use it, and it will most likely expire.
- A gift card is low-hanging fruit. Too easy. When you give it to her, she’ll go “.. oh wow, he sure didn’t put a lot of thought into it this year…again!” So, no gift cards!
Say NO to a Bowl of Strained Peas.
If your mom is older, DO NOT get her a bowl of strained peas. It’s very insulting.
And Absolutely DO NOT Get Her Tools.
Finally, DO NOT get her a 12amp heavy-duty portable electric pipe threader, or a 16-ounce ball-peen dead blow hammer. Those two things are what YOU want. This is Mother’s Day…it’s not about you.
