The last thing you want is Mom to feel like is that she is your maid.
Don't put a damper on her day by reminding her of household chores.
Rather then giving her something she has to cook with why not suggest that you make dinner instead. Moms love cooking for you but they need to know that you see them as more than your personal chef.
I don't think anyone's eyes every lit up after opening a thigh master.
She may take this as a subtle hint that you think she is out of shape.
A gym membership may send out a signal that suggests you think your mother is fat or needs to lose weight. Avoid this at all costs!
A New Pet
Think twice before you surprise her with a new pet.
Who's going to feed it? Walk it? Train it?
If the answer is mom, walk away.
If you mom is an animal lover consider making a donation to the Toronto Humane Society.
A Gift Card
They're impersonal, and you run the risk of giving her one to a store she doesn't really like.
Instead take her out shopping to her favorite boutique.
She'll enjoy it and you'll actually spend time together.
Speaking from personal experience all a mom wants for Mother's Day
is to spend time with her family!
