Sunday is Mother's Day, hopefully you have gotten the mom in your life a gift already, but there is certainly a tendency for (male) shoppers to wait until the last minute. If you still have shopping to do, here is a list of Mother’s Day gifts to steer clear of. At Abberly Village, apartments in West Columbia, SC, we are looking out for you. Here is a list of the WORST gifts for mom. Don’t let your gift get lost in translation.
A Kitchen Appliance.
This woman has spent years cooking for you. A kitchen tool will seem less like a "Thank you" and more like a, "Hey, can you cook me something?"
The idea of brightening up the commode with a gold-plated toilet brush or beautiful new soap dish is all well and good, but she's not going to like it.
Maybe for your wife, but not for your mother.
A Gift Certificate.
"Dear Mom, I just couldn't be bothered to put any effort into thinking about what you might want, so here's this."
Your mom is finally seeing the light at the end of the tunnel of taking care of you. She's thinking pedis -- not starting from scratch raising a brand-new helpless creature.
A Fancy Vacuum Cleaner.
Again, she has spent years cleaning up after you, enough said. This is not a good idea.
Lunch at Any Restaurant With Laminated Menus.
Spring for something a little more fancy.
A Gym Membership.
Your mother hasn't signed up for a health club yet for the same reasons you haven’t. She's not looking for a reminder from you that she needs to get in shape.
