While they say that it's the thought that counts, give us a break! Every mom knows that there are some seriously bad gifts out there for Mother's Day. Here are our top picks for the world's worst gifts ....
Gifts Mom Doesn't Want for Mother's Day
Another Ceramic From Color Me Mine
It was cute the first time but after a closet full of mis-painted bowls and vases and pencil holders and more -- Mommy's had her fill. As much as we love a handmade gifts, Color Me Mine is no inexpensive craft.A handmade and (practically free) card would mean just as much as dropping $50 on a piece of ceramic, which will eventually end up in a million pieces on my kitchen floor.
Anything With 'World's Best Mom' Printed On It
As much as we take pride in being mothers, please just tell us and save the cash on a beyond-generic mug or t-shirt or picture frame. The adding challenge in receiving a gift like this is you can never get ride of it. We can't exactly casually place his kind of a gift in the neighborhood yard sale box.
Yet Another Generic Bath/Body Gift Set
Have you looked underneath Mom's bathroom sink lately? Yes, it's filled with stuff like this from as far back as '88.As much as we'd love to be able to sit around and take hour-long baths, using all these bubbly treats, it ain't gonna happen.
All Kitchen Appliances
Nothing says you love mom like a toaster! And yes, even though smoothies are fantastic, blenders count too. Actually -- all items with a plug that require a ton of kitchen storage space and a ton of clean-up time.
Never-Fulfilled, Made-Up Coupons
These might have been cute when the kids were three but when your teenage son drops you one of these, you know it's a 100% crappy gift. And by the way, has anyone ever have one of these fulfilled?! If so, props to you for being so pissed at receiving one, they had to make it right.
Gifts mom gives to help one to survive college and really, more out of the house all together, are not gifts to be given to mom for Mother's Day.
On that note, really, anything in the home/kitchen department of Target, Walmart, Kmart, etc.
Even if they are luxey "green" products, just say "no!"
This is the worst gift we've ever heard.
No matter how expensive they are, knives are gifts that one buys oneself. Period.
