  3. @Rebee, maybe the robe or Tarte set? aahahahah Wishful thinking for me with that Chloe bag! lol

    i got a Fruit bouquet for my bday and it was delish

  5. that guy says:

    that bliss card is a great idea

  6. Every year I tell him not to get me anything, but I’m thrilled when he ignores me! I don’t really “want” anything, so whatever I get will be gravy!

    My mom travels quite a bit, so we bought her a travel photography course this year. Hope shes love it.

  7. mimieyes says:

    Great suggestion of presents.
    I’m thinking of sending the fruit bouquet.

  8. @Nerd Girl – That’s an awesome gift idea!

    Even though I said combo gifts are no fun – I’m really easy to please. Plus, I have the greatest gift of all – my daughter AVA!

  1. BGG, Mother’s Day brings mixed emotions for me since my mom has passed away. However, it’s always fun to see what my children come up with to make me smile on my special day. I would love any and all of your suggestions but I also love the scribbled I love you on construction paper, the dollar store lotion and the bootleg perfume. For me, it’s the look on their faces when I am pleased that makes my day. It’s priceless!

  2. So many good gifts. I was stuck on the diamonds that is until I got to the foot massager! Wow. Now I want that. I’ve tried it in the store and it’s wonderful. At that price though, I’m afriad I’ll be trying it again in the store. LOL.

  3. Great ideas! I’ll have to mention these to you know who. Lol. Although I really don’t care too much about the day since I can’t spend the day with my mom because she passed. I just look at it as another day. Even though I’m a mother it’s hard to not have my mother around on that day but I do enjoy whatever I do or get.

  4. being an unemployed college student, my mother will get a card this year…again. if i had money i would get her the oprah book or clothes. ive bought her jewelry, a foot massager, and other things in the past but the gift she liked most was when i bought her an outfit.

  5. BGG, Great ideas and thanks for the reminder.
    Since my mother is away I love the Posh Pink bouquet.

  6. kitty vodka says:

    good ideas! thanks, the bracelet is my fav. i think i want it

  7. Excellent topic. That calf massager looks WONDERFUL. I also love love LOVE the story of a lifetime book. What a wonderful idea. I want to buy it for all the women in my life.

    (Making a mental side note to add that to my bridesmaids’s gift bags whenever I get married)

  8. i’ll take everything on this post!! LOL-i wish :-S but i’m so excited!!! i actually get stuff now so i’m pumped-YIPPEEEE!!!!!

  9. all great ideas… I got my mom carol’s daughter stuff last year… being with her this past weekend though revealed to me that she needs a new cell phone… so I will be going that route!
