Remember that Mum's like to have a bit of a laugh as well which is why you should be looking for fun gifts to make her smile, not chocolates to make her fat or flowers to bring out her alergy's.
To help you on your way to Mother's Day gift redemption we have put together a top 5 list of Mothers Day Gift Ideas we think will make her day.
Mum works pretty hard and every now and again she likes to relax with a glass of wine to ease the tensions of the day. We guarantee that this glass of wine will do more than ease the tensions, it will probable make her forget all of her wories and stresses. For a bit of a giggle grab Mum a Wine Bottle Glass for $21.90.
If drinking to excess isn't her bag and she still needs to de-stress then maybe something along the lines of Voodoo magic with the Cursed Cookies so she can make make replica family members and then dismember them when they annoy her. Sounds a bit gruesome but all that rolling and pounding, not to mention tearing it apart limb from delicious limb will do the job nicely.
Have you ever seen Mum crying in the kitchen for no particular reason? It's probably only cutting up the onions that were making her cry and it most likely had nothing to do with your report card or that heavily tattooed boyfriend you brought home! Just to make sure, you could grab a pair of Dame Edna syle Onion Glasses for under $20.00. If she crys next time she cuts up onions, then it is definately you that has disapointed her once again.
Here is a great one for the anal retentive (is that ok to say?), I mean obsessive compulsive Mum who has to get everything absoloutly perfect, from perfectly pressed pants and shirts to perfectly even vegetables. Carrots juilienned to a tolerance of 0.01mm. Obsessive? Yes, but they are out there and probably should be doing food prep for Heston Blumenthal but having you kids has kept her from her life's ambition. Reward your obsessive compulsive Mum for her sacrifices wih the Obsessive Chef Cutting Board.
Finally we can end all this with a sensible and practical Mothers Day Gift Idea that has been a best seller for a couple of years now. The fabulous Giant Coffee Mug Mum holds a whoping 900ml of coffee that will sooth the savage beast that takes a little while in the morning to transform into the perfect Mum. If 900ml of coffee doesn't do the trick in the morning, then we may suggest a tranquiliser gun.
