PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT:
Your mother has enough candles.
She doesn't want a vacuum.
Don't you dare buy her anything that has to do with cooking, cleaning, homemaking.
Gift Ideas For Mom:
Mom is getting older, and she wants to age gracefully. It's not offensive when you buy her anything skin care related. Chances are, she's been thinking about it already.

- Vitamin C (Skinceuticals CE Ferulic | PCA Skin C&E Advanced | Skinmedica Vitamin C&E | ZO Skin Health - Obagi 10% Vitamin C Self-Activating)

Other gift ideas include but not limited to:
A day at the spa (massage and/or facial), a meal planned with just you and her (brunch, lunch, dinner date), culinary festival, a day at the salon (hair cut or blowout).
Don't forget the card! My mother really could not care less about the gift. Her favorite thing, and the only thing she asks for every year, is 10 reasons why I love her. This is your chance to be sweet and kindhearted, and to remind your mom how much she means to you. We really couldn't live without her. Anyone else calling their mom to find out how long to microwave A N Y T H I N G? One day we will learn, but not yet.
Happy Mother's Day!
