Happy Mother’s Day to all the Mommy’s out there! Our day is finally here! We get to kick back, relax, sip on a glass of wine while our families take over our job (for a while, at least). Hopefully, you will all receive a present that you truly enjoy and not one on this list!
Top 8 Worst Gifts
8. Homemade jewelry
Unless you are five years old, this is not cute. We do not care how crafty you are! If you would like to give us jewelry please go to a jewelry store!
7. Breakfast in bed
This sounds like heaven, in theory, but if you do not plan on cleaning the kitchen ( and we mean really cleaning up after you have made this wonderful breakfast) then do not bother. We will skip breakfast to get an extra 30 minutes of sleep.
6. Empty picture frames
Unless you are going to fill them with pictures, please do not get this! We do not want more work to do and an empty picture frame is very impersonal.
5. Kitchen appliances
Really? Because we live and breathe to cook for you? We do not think so.
4. Cooking lessons
Oh, you did not just go there! Please be appreciative that we do cook for you and leave the cooking lessons at the front door.
No thank you! Contrary to what you have been told, we do not want anything that will aid in our cleaning given to us as a present, unless you wanted to vacuum the entire house for us (for a week!). That would be a great present.
2. The “trick” present: Our name is on the card but it is really for Dad
Do not expect us to believe that surround sound system is for us! No, that play station is not for us either! We are also not going out to eat at your favorite steak house. We are not falling for it.
1. A gym membership
We know your heart is in the right place, but all we hear when we receive a gym membership is, “Hey, lard butt, you better start working out ASAP!” Not quite the Mother’s Day message we are looking for.
Here are some answer I received on Baby Center
I got a stroller 2 years ago. Seriously???
Nothing. I absolutely love my hubby but I was totally heartbroken when he forgot my first Mother’s Day.
Anti-aging cream! I don’t have wrinkles, thank you.
Please comment if you can think of any others, if you were the giver of a bad present, or if you were given one!
