What should you not give your mother for Mother's Day?

Asked by Hawaii_Jake (30606points) May 9th, 2010

We all know that flowers and cards and breakfast in bed and champagne brunches are wonderful things to give a mother on Mother’s Day, but are there things you can imagine would make inappropriate gifts?

Road kill, worms, gift-wrapped frogs?

A certificate of reservation of grave.

Speaking as a mother, the one thing I haven’t been given and am happy not to have been given (by my sons) is red roses from the grocery store. They don’t have any smell and they look kind of gloomy (to me). But roadkill wouldn’t be far behind as a no-no.

A gift certificate for hair removal (unless she specifically has shown an interest in this) or any type of appliance (unless specifically requested by her).

Hmm…..If your kid showed that they obviously thought Mother’s Day was stupid, or that they aren’t even thinking about you, on Mother’s Day, that would be worse than a bad gift.

All mothers are different, but I can safely say mine would not appreciate thong underwear.

Lingerie. Which is why even if he says he’s just buy a robe for his mom, you know he’s cheating and you leave him.
