    Mother's Day gift ideas

    Mother's Day is nearly here.

    What ideas do you all have for your mother or wife?

    How about ideas to help out your kids for their mom?

    I'm looking for creative ideas; more than just flowers, dinner, breakfast in bed, etc..

    I would post what I got her, but she reads the board.

    Cell phones (from the kid) and spa gift certificate from me. The spa thing always goes over big.

    Re: Mother's Day gift ideas

    I got my wife a membership in a wine of the month club. Had to think of something different because when you add up bdays, valentine's day, mother's day, xmas, etc, etc it is tough to be original. I think she will really dig this one.

    Re: Mother's Day gift ideas

    For my mother I'm looking at a gift certificate for gardening supplies but I can't find any on-line certificates. They all need to be mailed.

    Here is the best I've found for gardening stuff:

    BestNest.com: Bird Feeders, Weather Stations, Pond Pumps, Address Plaques, Bird Houses, Pond Liner, Arbors, Bird Baths

    Re: Mother's Day gift ideas

    I just got Jeff's mom some flowers that I arranged myself in a vase and put in our spare bedroom for her when she gets here tonight.

    I am not a mom, so I don't get any presents, but if I did, that wine or book of the month club would be great! Anything but flower of the month.


    Just in case you didn't know... I'm a girl.

    Re: Mother's Day gift ideas

    Get her something from Victoria Secret....that would always go over well. A new perfume, a new bra, some matching panties or some cute lingerie.

    I'm not a mom either but if I was...the wine of the month club thing sounds perfect to me.

    With the "special" attachments, she may never invite you back to bed.
