Some of you might remember that two years ago Craig bought me an axe for Mother’s Day. For those who are gaping in horror at your laptop right now, here’s me using it:
And…I loved it. That wasn’t my only gift, but it was the only one I asked for. What? Axes are awesome! Anyhoo, Craig always wins at Mother’s Day because he bothers to think about what I might like and does that. He either gets me exactly what I ask for or drops a surprise that is specific to me.
That’s how it is done, fellas. Please make a note of it.
Until you reach shopping level:pro like Craig, I’m here to help. My benevolence and loathing of awful gifts knows no bounds. So I’m revamping my favorite online shopping sites from last year. There’s going to be a couple of nips and tucks and a complete removal of all that stress you’re feeling because you are just now realizing that Mother’s Day is in 2 weeks. Don’t worry. All these places have shipping services that will totally save your ass.

Oh dear lord. I am truly very sorry if I’m the one who is exposing you to this wonder of the interwebz where you will spend all your disposable income and waste hours dreaming of what could be. But don’t be mad at me, blame Matt Gates. It’s his fault. Also, do not take my warning of how much this site will consume you lightly. I recently touted it’s wonders on the 9 Thumbs podcast and nearly shut down the recording.
This one is broken down into categories so it is easy to navigate to items that might be super cool for your mother, the mother of your children, grandmother, mother-in-law, step-mother…
Now you’re panicking and wondering where the shopping stops, aren’t you? Sorry. I’m going to totally leave you hanging on that one.
This is the highest rated flower delivery company in the country. the prices are competitive and the arrangements are lovely. I have already established that any woman who says she hates getting flowers is a bald faced liar, but you’d better make it good. Spend the money for something unique. Do not cheap out on carnations or I will personally hang you out to dry on Twitter.
So have at it. Make her day awesome.
