Friday Bargain Bin: This Stuff Might Still Get to Your Mom in Time?

Keith Sweat and/or Tanya Tucker Concert Tickets, Prices Vary
Moms love Keith Sweat or Tanya Tucker, and often BOTH. And you love her, right?


Paraffin Bath, $34.99 (was $39.99)
Moms love paraffin baths. Get her one of her own.


Aurina Hoop Earrings, $6.99 (were $29)
Moms love beaded earrings, though. Don't lie.


Generations Scrapbook, $30 (was $58)
Before it came into your mom's life this beautiful thing was 50 blank pages waiting for a pal with a gel pen to make it feel like it belonged.


Left Bank Jacket, $129.95 (was $498)
Moms love expensive gifts because it proves they raised an industrious and successful child. (INSERT EVERYTHING YOU'RE THINKING BUT ALSO KEEP IN MIND THAT THIS SUPER TRUE FOR MOST MOMS.)


Philosophy Palette, $28.60 (was $62)
This has four eye shadows, two lip colors, mascara, and a highlighter. And not to mention moms LOVE Philosophy for some reason?


Georgetown Tote, $15.99 (was $19.95)
And you can get it monogrammed. Priceless, I'm telling you.


Picnic Wine Stakes, $19 with free shipping
Moms like to pretend they get clumsy with age. Indulge them!


Grandma and Granddaughter Loungewear Set, $19.99 (was $29.95)
The seller actually calls this a "mom and daughter" set — and they wonder why it's on clearance.


Murray's Ultimate Cheese Tasting, $66.99 (was $85.95)
I mean, if you're gonns drop a couple twenties on a bouquet, why not step it up?


Southern Grace Bed & Breakfast, $273 for 3 nights (was $546)
Send your mom to the hills where breakfast and a child-free view are included.

DIBS ON THOSE EARRINGS FOR MY MOM. Bam.

frigwiggin

"Cheese, Gary? Cheese? You know my mother is lactose-intolerant! Also, that gouda is looking suspiciously chewed-upon. Let me see your dental records."

SarahP

@frigwiggin "Well Jeez, Elaine, I just thought it would be nice if someone got your mother something she wants. God knows you've gotten her enough stupid matching pajama sets over the years..."

Marquise de Morville

@SarahP Oh Gary! You know full well that she keeps spilling red wine on them every time she goes to one of her pajama picnics in the park! And, no, she does not do that on purpose!

NeenerNeener

Since someone mentioned Todd & Margot on another thread today, I thought I'd mention that I think of Gary & Elaine as Todd & Margot every time. I think the reasons are obvious.

Emma Peel

@NeenerNeener Definitely did not understand the difference until VERY recently. But the jokes still worked.

Emma Peel

@Where Pies Go When They Die They are the characters from the wonderful/hilarious Catalog Living blog: http://catalogliving.net/

I thought they were Todd and Margot (from National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation) for a very long time though, so those are the voices they now have in my head.

Nutellaface

@Where Pies Go When They Die http://catalogliving.net/

frigwiggin

@Where Pies Go When They Die It's funny, because the other day I was trying to remember how Gary and Elaine Fridays got started around here, and the closest I can remember was someone (maybe me? maybe not?) making a joke about this disgustingly rich couple complaining to one another, and somehow it morphed into Gary and Elaine, and then it started happening on the Bargain Bin like comedy fanfiction improv. [/tales of frigwiggin]

frigwiggin

@Marquise de Morville "Well, Elaine, all I know is that that bed and breakfast deal is my Mother's Day gift to ME. Gary is the hardest-working mother Gary knows! Now if you'll excuse me, I'm off to take my paraffin bath."

ms. alex

@Where Pies Go When They Die I made the Catalog Living connect quite a while after I started enjoying the Gary & Elaine comments, it was a magical experience when it all fell into place.

redheaded&crazy

I reallly want that picnic wine stake thing but I'm looking at the way the curlicues go around the wine thinking ... that looks like i'd spill it all over myself trying to get it out.

also i'd have to buy all other picnic materials. and "have to" is a strong word but a new sundress. and a boyfriend. hm.

redheaded&crazy

@redheaded&crazie you're supposed to be buying it for your mom

YEAH BUT....

Oh, squiggles

@redheaded&crazie I can totally see myself at a picnic, far enough into the wine, just picking up the whole stake and drinking out of it...the result would not be pretty.

Lily Rowan

@redheaded&crazie Yeah, I couldn't figure out how to get the glasses out.

redheaded&crazy

@Lily Rowan I guess it's just for decoration. I like to drink straight out of the bottle anyway!

Fig. 1 (formerly myfanwy)

@redheaded&crazie Yeah, I saw that picnic stake thing and thought, "That's not going to end well."

SarahP

@Lily Rowan Wait, you're right. How does it work?

Luckier

@redheaded&crazie I saw one of these at a Bartells drug store in Seattle for $12.99.

Lily Rowan

@SarahP I bet actually the gap is big enough to easily slip the stem through, but it's hard to see.

NeenerNeener

@Lily Rowan @SarahP
(Not pictured: straws)

Oh, squiggles

Cheese and wine related items are definitely the way to my mom's heart. Or mine for that matter.

LeafySeaDragon

i had one of those parrafin baths long ago. LOVED IT!

my mom would wear those earrings.

hotdog

Seriously, no Coldwater Creek? No Chicos? No brightly colored pottery that is vageuly art deco but not really at all? We must have very dissimilar mothers.

jule_b_sorry

@hotdog Are you my sister? Add in outrageously expensive kitchen gadgets and anything that she can use on her horse, and that's every gift I've ever gotten my mom, ever.

olivebee

@hotdog Coldwater Creek and J.Jill are totally my mom's jam. I remember browsing the CC catalog for her for Mother's Days when I was little.

elysian fields

@hotdog no offense to your mother (who I'm sure is wonderful -- really, no sarcasm intended) but my mother would die before deigning to wear anything from Coldwater Creek. I think her entire wardrobe is from Loft, with a little bit of Gap and Banana thrown in.

hotdog

@elysian fields It's ok, my mom is more of a chico's gal, but she's an aaaaartist so loves bright colors and embezzlement. She of course got a daughter who loves simple-lined neutrals.

royaljunk

@hotdog My mother (and grandmother) swear by both CC and Chicos, and just REFUSE TO UNDERSTAND why I wouldn't be caught dead in anything from those stores.

elysian fields

@hotdog I'm sure your mom rocks the Chico's! Mine likes to pretend that she's about 20 years younger and 50 lbs lighter than she really is ... hence the Loft stuff. Even Talbots is too "frumpy."

Jane Marie

@hotdog Don't you DARE accuse me of not including an item from Chico's. :)

Palmetto

@hotdog Dude, my mom likes embezzlement too!! ;)

beanie

@elysian fields my mother thinks she is too good for Coldwater Creek and J. Jill ("old lady clothing" is what she calls it), yet owns plentiful amounts of TALBOTS. Also, sweaters for every holiday imaginable.

hotdog

@Jane Marie Ha, my apologies, the earrings! I probably missed them because they seemed to understated for the Chico's! Not that I don't love my mother's recent collection of large brightly colored wooden baubles.

mabellegueule

@Jane Marie I regret to this day not getting those flamingo earrings you suggested in this post:
http://thehairpin.com/2012/01/friday-bargain-bin-what-to-do-with-your-allowance-this-week-30

hotdog

Or I could give her the best gift ever: a stable man for me to marry and babies that quickly follow.

redheaded&crazy

@hotdog that WOULD be the best gift ever!

Does Axl have a jack?

@hotdog Sigh. Don't remind me. More importantly, don't remind her.

Tuna Surprise

@hotdog
Once you hit your mid thirties, your mom doesn't carry about the man and just wants the baby.

travelmugs

@Tuna Surprise My mom started only caring about the babies in my early 20s. I'm scared to see what the mid thirties hold. :-/ Maybe she'll extract my eggs in my sleep?

Bittersweet

@Tuna Surprise: And then once she gets the grandbaby, you're fairly expendable too.

(JK, <3 you mommie!)

boyofdestiny

Tanya Tucker is still kicking around? That warms my heart.

thebestjasmine

That picnic wine stake thing is perfect for my mom...but the Kindle I bought for her is coming today, wooo.

noodge

@thebestjasmine ooooh, my sister and i got a kindle for my mother for her 70th - she was terrified of it at first (TECHNOLOGY!) but she now loves it and takes it everywhere with her. I hope she's not using it when she drives...

in other words, excellent gift choice!

thebestjasmine

@teenie She will be psyched! And I have one, so can teach her how to use it (and it's pretty easy anyway).

sarah girl

@thebestjasmine Seriously, I'm pretty sure that if her house was burning down, my mom would grab her Kindle first, and then maybe the dog/photos/etc.

olivebee

I need to go acquire a child to buy me that CHEESE. Mmmmmm.

iceberg

@olivebee I cannot wait til mine are old enough to buy me all of the cheeses.

travelmugs

@iceberg I want kids for only this reason. (It would make up for the 9 pregnancy months of not being able to eat raw milk cheese, right? Right?)

M'fly

@travelmugs Oh you can totally eat raw milk cheese when you're pregnant! Just, y'know, don't eat it if it came from somewhere sketchy, like a factory farm or an amateur cheesemaker.

Source: I work in an artisanal cheese shop and my boss just had a baby.

Lily Rowan

Wait. I'm supposed to have a child old enough to buy me presents??? Because I LOVE Keith Sweat. Don't even get me started on "Make it Last Forever," and the Boy I Loved In High School.

Jane Marie

@Lily Rowan please, get started?

Lily Rowan

@Jane Marie There may have been a time where we sat in the dark and sang the two parts and it was beautiful. Shockingly, it did not last forever!

EpWs

I managed to solve Mother's Day a few years back by starting a tradition of taking my mom to a plant nursery and getting her a few plants every year. BAM, MOTHER'S DAY. No agonizing required.

Now I need to figure out an equivalent for my dad...

camanda

@The Everpresent Wordsnatcher I've already given my dad the two best presents he's ever going to get from me (a replica 1972 Montreal Canadiens sweater and a titanium spork), and every birthday/Father's Day/Christmas since that year has been agony. Why are dads so difficult?

EpWs

@camanda A TITANIUM SPORK? That is amazing.

But yeah, every year in the Wordsnatcher family:
Everpresent: "Dad, what do you want for ____________[holiday]?"
Dad: "Oh, you don't need to get me anything."
E: "DAD. I'm obviously going to get you something, what do you want?"
Dad: "Anything you get me would obviously be wonderful. Why don't you draw me a picture?"
E: "..."

In the end he always says golf tees. DAD. COME ON.

noodge

@The Everpresent Wordsnatcher no really, are you my sister? that's exactly what they do every year.

EpWs

@teenie GIRL I wish. No sisters for me SADTIMES.

noodge

@The Everpresent Wordsnatcher well, you can be my jklolinternet-sister <3

camanda

@The Everpresent Wordsnatcher @teenie We are all related somehow, because that is also me and my dad.

Also, yes, a titanium spork. He uses it almost every other meal.

royaljunk

@The Everpresent Wordsnatcher I get my dad an iTunes card for Father's Day every year, and everyone is happy.

Megasus

@The Everpresent Wordsnatcher Take your Dad to Best Buy? Or Home Depot. OR a really good butcher's shop. It really depends on what kind of Dad you have.

EpWs

@Megano! Home Depot sounds promising! He does call it "the toy store for dads."

Faintly Macabre

@The Everpresent Wordsnatcher That sounds like my dad, though he does not play golf. His office has a Secret Santa thing every year, and everyone's supposed to send in a list of a few inexpensive things they'd like. I had to essentially write his last year. For his birthday, I got him a really nice bar of chocolate, and he was thrilled.

Though since I'm your sister and teenie's your sister, I guess none of us actually knows our real father...

TheDragon

@The Everpresent Wordsnatcher
I'm good at buying for everyone except for my older sister. It's like we aren't even related.

gobblegirl

@The Everpresent Wordsnatcher Dads, man. The worst. (Kidding, my dad is the best, except for that obvious GLARING flaw).

EpWs

@Faintly Macabre "Hi Dad, this year for Father's Day I got myself some internet sisters. Uh, Happy Father's Day?"

redheaded&crazy

@The Everpresent Wordsnatcher

dad: you can never have too many clamps!
[years go by]
dad: you bought me too many clamps

WELL???????

Mame16th

@The Everpresent Wordsnatcher I do the same thing too! A rosebush is the perfect Mother's Day present, for my mom anyway.

all the bacon and eggs

Um...I think Jane meant to say "everyone" loves Keith Sweat.

jule_b_sorry

Give them the gift they really want...GRANDCHILDREN.

Sure mom! I'll get right on that...

travelmugs

@jule_b_sorry I thought about doing a pregnancy/Mother's Day joke to my mom, but I really just don't think her grandbaby-craving heart could handle it.

EpWs

@travelmugs Oh no, don't do that, you will kill the poor woman.

camanda

My sister and I picked out the ice cream maker bowl/attachment for my mom's KitchenAid. She found out and won't let us get it. Which is obviously an order we're not listening to.

QuiteAmiable

Seriously thinking about getting that B&B deal for myself.

TheGenYgirl

How are those two "grandma and granddaughter"...?

Rubyinthedust

@TheGenYgirl yeah i was thinking the same thing...huh?

Inkling

I'm just getting mine some weed coffee creamer, but these gifts are all quite accurate mom suggestions!

Fig. 1 (formerly myfanwy)

@Inkcrafter "Weed coffee creamer" I am intrigued/newsletter

nevernude cutoffs

@Fig. 1 (formerly myfanwy) I shall also order that newsletter.

Inkling

@Fig. 1 (formerly myfanwy)
Simmer weed and creamer together in a double-boiler situation for an hour or more, strain out the leaves, and refrigerate.

iceberg

I was rushing down here all indignant to be like *I* would wear those earrings! and then I remembered I am a mom, so. Point Jane Marie!

EpWs

@iceberg Motherhood: sneaking up on you since whatever year your kidlets were born.

Inkling

@iceberg
"What baby?"

TheDragon

@iceberg
As long as you don't forget that you're a mom when the kidlets are in the car! Seriously this week was "Make sure that The Kendragon never has kids" week.

iceberg

@The Kendragon Ugh I KNOW but it's too late once you have them! It's probably easier to forget one than 3 though, and I don't drive so I'm never alone in the car with them.

TheDragon

@iceberg
Eh my dad forgot me at a gas station in Texas one time, and I was fine. (He got almost 50 miles down the road before he realized I wasn't in my "den" in the back of the car.)

Disco Sheets

I totally misread the "shopsale-coats" link on that Anthro coat as "shapeless-coats" and was just nodding along.

Alixana

@Disco Sheets Yeah, I cannot figure out what is going on with that coat? Is that white leather?

EpWs

@Alixana I have no idea but I keep thinking that the white bit on the bottom is a pair of attached shorts?

Terrifying Wife-Avatar

My mom doesn't wear makeup, so that means I can get the Philosophy palette for myself, right? RIGHT?

hotdog

@Nicole Sauvage@twitter Surely you jest! What mother does not love estee lauder??

sarah girl

@hotdog I'm pretty sure my mom's been using the same Cover Girl blush my entire life...

elysian fields

@Sarah H. My mother has worn this lipstick every day for I don't know how many years.

beanie

@elysian fields mine goes with Mac Lipglass in pink poodle after I bought it at age 14 and she stole it. My mom did it before Nicki Minaj! (She might be using the same tube, 11 years later...)

Faintly Macabre

@Sarah H. My mother uses the same tube of mascara for five years, and only applies it on a whim while stopped at red lights. When my sister started wearing blush, she was baffled by the whole concept.

TheDragon

@Nicole Sauvage@twitter
My mom never wears makeup either. My little sister skyped me for makeup tips before her first school dance, cause mom had NO idea what to do with any of it.

hotdog

@Faintly Macabre To be fair, my mother has moved on to MAC 'russian red' in the last few years, after revlon possibly discontinued her favorite. Along with the simple neutrals, I also don't wear lipstick. Or have babies. Or a marriage. Ha, take that, Mom! Just kidding, love you Mom!

sarah girl

My mom just got into nursing school for the fall! So I'm getting her an awesome new backpack.

nevernude cutoffs

@Sarah H. Aw!! I did that for my mom when she went back to school, and got her the college sweatshirt. (Because she was a college student and they only wear hoodies, genius at work here.)

OxfordComma

My father decided to go camping on Mother's Day.

Foul play, Pops. Foul. Play.

melis

WHEN IS MOTHER'S DAY

HONESTLY

EVERYTHING KEEPS SAYING "IT'S ALMOST MOTHER'S DAY HERE ARE THINGS TO GET HER" BUT THEY WON'T GET SPECIFIC AND I KEEP THINKING I MISSED IT BUT THEN NOBODY SAYS ANYTHING LIKE "OH YESTERDAY WAS MOTHER'S DAY HOW WAS YOUR MOTHER'S DAY WITH YOUR MOTHER, DID YOU MOTHER" AND SO I'M LIKE I GUESS IT HASN'T HAPPENED YET BUT WHEN THE FUCKING FUCK IS IT YOU GUYS

melis

I swear to God everyone is keeping it from me deliberately

elysian fields

@melis I freaked out majorly when I saw this Bargain Bin and rushed off to Google ... we're safe!! It's not until May 13th. Thanks for almost giving me a massive heart attack, Jane!

Maryaed

@melis Next Sunday. Not this one.

anachronistique

@melis Confusingly, it was in March in the UK because they do Mothering Sunday, which is tied to the date of Easter.

melis

@anachronistique A LMGTFY LINK REALLY YOU DON'T THINK I DESERVE A LITTLE MORE THAN THAT

anachronistique

@melis HEY NOW.

Alixana

@melis WELL YOU DON'T EVEN KNOW MY NAME SO OBVIOUSLY NOT.

iceberg

@melis it's always the second Sunday in May. Father's Day is a little more confusing for me because it's on a different day in the US than in Australia.

unless you were joking I CAN'T EVEN TELL ANYMORE.

frigwiggin

@iceberg Ughhhh, now I have to text my mom that she may be getting a card early this year. I do this JUST OFTEN ENOUGH to be in a state of near-panic about holidays, special occasions, and appointments the other three hundred days of the year.

Rock and Roll Ken Doll

@Alixana
I thought you were trying to stay anonymous??

Alixana

@josiahg No, my Hairpin name! Melis yelled at someone else for my LMGFY link.

melis

@Alixana I SWEAR TO GOD I DON'T KNOW HOW THAT HAPPENED

"IF YOU KEEP ABUSING THE CAPS LOCK BUTTON YOUR KEYBOARD IS GOING TO FREEZE THAT WAY"

OKAY MOM

SuperGogo

@iceberg EVERYBODY'S/NOBODY'S JOKING! EVERYBODY'S/NOBODY'S LINKING TO THE WRONG/RIGHT PERSON!

lora.bee

How about anything vanilla scented?

Aaaand Strongbow. Always Strongbow.

EpWs

@lora.bee But not vanilla scented Strongbow

lora.bee

@The Everpresent Wordsnatcher Mmmmmmm.

TheDragon

My mom is getting tulip and iris bulbs and a promise to plant them in the fall.

anachronistique

It's true, I got my mom a Philosophy fancy face care kit a couple years ago and she still talks about how great it was.

And what is it with the earrings? Every present-giving occasion goes like this:

Me: So, what do you want for [your birthday/Mother's Day/Giftmas]?
Mom: Well, I could always use more -
Me: BESIDES EARRINGS?

TheDragon

@anachronistique
My mom's thing is scarves. Chunky wool scarves, floaty gauzy scarves, soft silk scarves...It works though, because I love scarves but am not confident enough to wear them. So I buy ALL the pretty scarves, and use them as gift wrap for the other presents

Hello Kidney

@The Kendragon I am your mother (not really)!! I LOOOOOOVE me a scarf. Unfortunately in Las Vegas, you can only pull off wearing a one each day for like four months, max. If I ever got a present wrapped in a scarf I would DIE of happiness.

Check out this sweet scarf tutorial if you want to up your scarf confidence.

SCARF!!!

Megasus

I wish I was a Mom just so I could get that ultimate cheese tasting kit.

Claire Impens@facebook

The price on the earrings is now $12.99. There's a mole!!

sheistolerable

Can anyone comment on whether the Philosophy shadows are shimmery or matte? Asking for uh, not my mom.

beanie

Thank god you posted this. Most scarring childhood memory: my mom crying when none of us did anything for mother's day. It will haunt me to the grave.

EpWs

@beanie That gives me cold sweats just thinking about it.

iceberg

@beanie OK so I definitely have to call my mom but I think I'm exempted from present-sending, because international postage would bankrupt me.

travelmugs

@iceberg Ugh. I forgot Mother's Day last year, and my mom didn't freak out because she knows that I generally don't make a big deal out of Hallmark holidays. But then I remembered Father's Day and got my dad a gift and it was awkward.

EpWs

@iceberg Ooh, in gifts-that-don't-require-postage (if you'd like!), several options that I have gotten for my own mom:
e-gift certificates--my mom loves Sierra Trading Post, so I got her a certificate from them for her birthday in December. They're only online so it worked well! I could set when it was delivered so it was in her inbox when she woke up on her birthday.
Happy donations to good things! I'm a fan of Heifer International (my mom knits, so I donated a sheep in her honor) and they send a nice card to the honoree.

rianne marie

@beanie I can top you. Told my parents I had flunked out of my university program and surprise! Wasn't in school anymore. On Mother's Day.

Jen Alien-Spouse@twitter

@beanie
My husband is the youngest of 5 (well, it's 8 really, but it's a blended family - So for the purpose of this anecdote it's just those 4 siblings), and on one Mother's Day he answered his phone to hear his mother yelling "All you kids SUCK!" and then slamming the phone down on her end.

They had all forgotten.

Fig. 1 (formerly myfanwy)

It's hard to buy stuff for my mom. The only things I can think of is stuff she has already. Usually she just wants what I have, unless she doesn't.

Bittersweet

@Fig. 1 (formerly myfanwy): Right with you. Actually, buying presents for my mom is tough because she doesn't want anything (except "to see you guys more," ugh), and buying presents for my dad is tough because he already has everything.

Fig. 1 (formerly myfanwy)

@Bittersweet Yes, the only thing worse than trying to guess what my mom wants is trying to guess what movie she would like to see. So far I am 0 for 2646.

JadedStone

gosh my mom is so weird.
I got her some moving cat ear.. things... you wear and control by remote. She is a big fan of cat ears. Also either the actifry/a new djembe/or a really expensive camera lens. DECISIONS.

She would scoff at everything on this list except for the cheese.

Roxanne Rholes

I pride myself on giving good gifts, but I think I'm losing my edge! I'm totally drawing a blank. Last year I got my mother a locket and put a photo of her mom in it, and the year before that tickets to go to a show she wanted to see. This year...a bottle of tequila? Ugh. Fucked if I know. DANG IT.

TheLetterL

@Roxanne Rholes Exact same here. Uggggggh

Roxanne Rholes

@TheLetterL ...and you know it's always like, "the best gift is just spending some tiiiiime with you!" which is great, but I still feel like an asshole if there are no gifts involved.

Barry Grant

@Roxanne Rholes

Qream?

TheLetterL

@Roxanne Rholes Literally an hour ago: "Oh, you don't have to get me anything..." NOT HELPFUL.

But Qream just might be the answer.

likethestore

Every goddamn Mother's Day and birthday my mom says, without fail, "Oh, I don't need anything!" And then my dad and I quietly panic.

EpWs

@likethestore Is your mom my dad? Because YES THIS.

Anji

@The Everpresent Wordsnatcher @likethestore I think we are all related somehow. Also, Christmas.

This year, she's getting earrings that are tiny orchids preserved in layers of resin with a matching brooch whether she likes it or not, goddamn it.

caddie

@Anji ...did you purchase those somewhere you can link to? They sound gorgeous and my mom is similarly uncooperative.

NeverOddOrEven

As if I needed a reminder that my mother (and whole family) is so far from what they're portrayed to be.

And in the bad way. Gah, I fucking hate holidays with the fire of a million suns.

rianne marie

I hate that these are American deals. My mother would love that wine stake thing. But it's $24.75 + $9.06 shipping to get it to Canada, which is way more than $19 and I am super duper broke right now.

Maria

We asked for a tote and got a tote. That is service. Way to deliver, Jane!

Hellcat

I'm no one's mom, but I want that cheese for ME!

heyladies

I don't care what age you are, handmade anything or heartfelt written sentiments trump all. Speaking as the mom of a 5 1/2 year old and a wee one who cannot wait to someday get a handwritten book. And maybe we are characters in it...A short one! Is that too much to ask??

Verity

Mother's Day was a few months ago here. So, it'll either be impossible for it to get there in time or really easy, depending on which Mother's Day we're talking about.

M'fly

Fuuuuuck I hate Mothers' Day. I don't know what to get my mom for any holiday ever, and one year I was all, "I'm not giving you a gift for Mothers' Day because it's a corporate holiday and I'm fighting the man!" and that did not go over well, because JFC just buy your mother a gift damnit. Sorry Mom, I was an asshole. So I dunno man, now I feel like I have to get her something extra nice to make up for what a dickhead teenager I was.

Oh shit, my dog just somehow pulled off part of the fence and is dragging it around the yard, I gotta go.

Mame16th

My mother actually /does/ love her paraffin bath, and beaded earrings, and Philosphy's Amazing Grace, and pajamas. She's pretty down with cheese and wine and coats, too.

Amphora

I'm going over to my parents' house and doing all the cooking. It's the best gift I can give them.

branza

So when I first saw the cheese, I thought it was 5 lbs of each cheese and I was like OMG TWENTY pounds of cheese for 67 bucks? SOLD

but it's really only two lbs of cheese :(

ms. alex

I really like the wine stand idea for my mom because she's such a cute/silly drunk. And by drunk, I mean 1.5 glasses of wine. Even though my mom doesn't drink often so it probably wouldn't get used (maybe because no one in Utah drinks other than her?).

ms. alex

@ms. alex But seriously, what am I going to get her? Ugh, I hate being poor. Plus I'm across the country so I can't go make dinner or something.
Also, this is the first Mother's Day where I have a mother-in-law, and I seriously doubt my husband has thought about it. He didn't manage to get his dad a card for his birthday, for heaven's sake. (For some reason he forgets that just because gifts don't matter to him that doesn't mean he should try with other people. SIGH.)

Bed Monster

My mom is the best/worst when it comes to Mother's day and her birthday. I occasionally ask her if she wants anything, and she responds, "No, I don't want anything." I used to press her, and the answer I would always get (and still get) was, "Diamonds. Do you have the money to buy diamonds? No? Well, then we're good. Just be nice to me." I get no gift-giving headaches, but I wonder if I should care when I get weird looks from friends after telling them this story.

baked bean

Lol Tanya Tucker will be in my hometown this summer, keep seeing ads and billboards for it.
