    Mother's Day ideas?

    OK. I'm looking for good Mother's Day ideas - specifically gift cards for my mother.

    Gardening - does anyone have a good website for ordering garden supplies?

    Wild Bird - I've used Best Nest for birdhouses, etc.. BestNest.com: Bird Feeders, Weather Stations, Pond Pumps, Address Plaques, Bird Houses, Pond Liner, Arbors, Bird Baths Other ideas?

    Food - I've used Amana Meats for frozen gourmet meat: Amana Meat Shop & Smokehouse Other ideas?

    Flowers - too many to mention.

    Does anyone have any thoughts on web gift cards?

    hmm... you're thinking about gardening and/or food. Interesting. I'm sure she'll be delighted when she realizes you're just giving her more work.

    She's retired and needs something to keep herself busy.

    Take her to the lumberyard, watch strippers and do some shots. Or......you could by her some nice hanging plants to spruce up the house.

    I've got three hours a week open. Minimum wage depending on looks and if she's spry.

    Re: Mother's Day ideas?

    ok, hire a stripper and let him come to the house....Grab a camera and take pictures and when she feels down show her the pictures. If you want something and she says no then show her the pictures

    Re: Mother's Day ideas?

    In all seriousness.....Think of what she enjoys to do and follow through with it. A hug and a I love you does wonders for a start. Do what she would like to do and don't think of the cost. Soon she may not be around anad then you will feel guilty. Start planning now and work on it. In all reality I think the stripper would lighten her up also
