Why can men never take a Mother's Day gift hint?


You know what they say: When it comes to gift-giving, you have to tell your husband exactly what you want. Otherwise, good-natured guy that he is, he might forget and you'll end up with zip, nada, a giant goose egg -- or, worse, a real giant goose egg.

Around the momlogic office, we Moms have had our share of crummy Mother's Day gifts...from electric blankets to hub caps to certificates for Botox injections. The list of bad gifts is long and, may we say, sometimes just plain sad. Why, oh why, can't some guys ever get it right?

What's the worst gift your husband has ever given you for Mother's Day?

I must admit(and try not to brag) My husband knows me, and knows A LOT about my personallity. He has never given me a bad gift. Last yr I recieved a baby kitten and a dozen roses. This yr was roses, a hot bath drawn for me and a massage from him… **SMILES**

Wost present I ever got was a bag of trash bags…Im not kidding. My husband (he was my boyfriend at the time, yes I married him anyway) gave me a box of trash bags because I normally reused grocery store bags instead of trash bags, he thought that was dumb and it was Christmas and he really thought that it was a useful present…ugh…men are so stupid. Let me tell you I tore through the whole box thinking a ring was hidden in the box…it wasnt…..
