My mom is the worst person to shop for. I had it easy the previous few years because I just kept getting her Hunger Games movies, but unfortunately the series finally came to a close. Now I have to think up something else.
Maybe driving me crazy is her present.
At some point, parents become impossible to shop for. What do you give people who already have everything they could ever want? Often I resort to gift cards. Although mom always gets flowers delivered for Mother's Day. (She loves them so that's easy.)ReplyDelete
Buy her an experience.ReplyDelete
Like, for my birthday, I got a coffee sampling subscription. It's pretty cool.
Get her the cat barf. Plus a cat barf sign. (Yes, we have one of those.)ReplyDelete
This year my mother said not to spend any money on her. So I sent her a card. But in previous years I've taken her out to lunch and to a movie. Have you thought about doing that? Or make her dinner. I'm sure she'd rather spend time with you than have some widget that she'll never use.ReplyDelete
My mom can be the same way. This year, I got her Fantastic Beasts because she is a fan of Harry Potter.ReplyDelete
I can't believe she didn't want whatever the cats yakked up. Doesn't everyone want that?ReplyDelete
Hope your mother enjoyed her day!
LOL. I'm so easy to shop for. I can even predict what each kid will get me. 3 will do gift cards, one takes me to a movie, one brings me a bottle of wine and my daughter actually things of something specific she knows I'll like.ReplyDelete
They sell rain gauges?ReplyDelete
