Mother's Day selections

It's Mother's Day this Sunday! One of the few days of the year when Sunday brunches are 50% more expensive than usual. Will you be doing any special for her? A shopping spree...a day spa package...letting her nag you without rolling your eyes in return?

Well I'm already on my best behaviour so here are some gift ideas that are inoffensive. They're also DIY if you are in possession of things like skill, manual dexterity and free time.

Cupcakes
This is the chance to thank Mum for all the late nights she spent in the kitchen baking cupcakes for your stupid school event. You can find everything you need to know about these marvellous baked goods on All Cupcakes All The Time. It's simply amazing what a little food colouring, frosting and cream can amount to these days - fancy flavours and fancier designs that made me gasp aloud. I have never been one to say no to a proffered cupcake, and I suspect that there aren't many people like that. In fact, those kind of people probably kick small animals and children in no particular order.

Soapcard
If your mother is a male inmate at a maximum security prison then a soapcard would probably be inappropriate. In all other cases, it is a cute and fuzzy sentiment that produces a satisfyingly foamy lather. Don't even bother trying to figure out they get the message in the soap. I'm sure the truth is disturbingly similar to a scene out of Fight Club.

Mom Teddy Bear
Ordinarily Supermom Bear would be a right bit of fashion roadkill but you can't deny the awesome power of a bear wearing the Super Mom belt complete with key ring and pockets for "Gum & Candy," "Wipes & First Aid Kit".

Supermom Bear comes from the Vermont Teddy Bear Company which has plenty of other special Mother's Day bears. My favourite is Bingo Bear who seems to be grasping an inferior imitation of the Rampant Rabbit. However you'd do well to stay away from the hybrid cow-bear of evil puns and the unfortunately titled Misfit Mom.

Need for validation aside, yes, yes you are.

Greetings! Found your blog via The Manolo.

I too cannot (CANNOT) stand it when Asian people bleach their hair.

Needless to say, I'll be back to keep myself updated on the fashion shenanigans of my people.

Adding free software for "mother day applications" attracks readers. The reason why I mention in my mother day blog a freeware application called "Photo Cube Maker". This allows you to make a unique customized Photo Cube with your own pictures (of your mother, family, yourself, ...).
You can check it out at **Free Photo Cube Maker**

I wish you all the luck with this application.
Kindly regards,

Mothers Day is a great way to let mom know how much you care. My mom loves personalized gifts. So I though about this gift idea that my boyfriend told me about for Mothers Day. Personalized soaps. I know, personalized soap seems weird. But you have to check out this site www.soapsaysit.com that offers personalized soaps for mom this mothers day. Really cute gift idea for mothers day or birthday.
