Every May we celebrate our mothers and the mother of our children. And every year we buy them some assembly line, mass-produced chocolate and equally unoriginal sappy card expressing sentiments we probably never really had, but hey – we knew it’s what she wanted to hear.
Not this time, fellas, not this time. Mother’s Day 2012 may be the last chance we get to express our gratitude to the women who gave us little spit monsters who wake at unholy hours of the morning and tattle on us every time we sneak an extra slice of pie. You know, come to think of it, this has got to be one of the strangest holidays ever, but I digress. Here are three gift ideas for your tiny tots to get for mom that won’t make her actually mean you shouldn’t have when she says it.
Touchless IR Thermometer from ThinkGeek: Moms worry about
their our precious little snowflakes so it’s only fitting that every mom should be able to make sure the flippin’ bird in the oven is cook all the way. The last thing she wants to do on her special day is spend it in the ER with a sick kid. This thermometer is simple to use, just press the on button and point it at wherever it is that you want to check. It even reads in Celsius for the crazy people on the world. It’s a little tricky at first, but she’ll catch on.
Custom Case for iPhone/iPod Touch from Case Mate: What mother doesn’t carry around a boatload of photos of her kids? Okay, maybe this one, but you know what I meant. In just a few easy clicks, you’ll have helped junior pick out a great gift and made sure she never forgot this school picture.
Wonder Plunger Measuring Cup: Ok, so this may not win any brownie points unless accompanies with a piece of jewelry, spa coupon, or a Starbucks gift card, but it’s pretty sweet. Speaking of sweet, when’s the last time you tried to measure a cup of honey or peanut butter for the world’s most delicious, out of the world amazing brownies? Do you remember how freaking hard it was to get all that out of the measuring cup? I present to you the Metric Wonder Cup, nope – the other kind. Bang! Problem solved. Great for wet or sticky ingredients, your kids will love being able to make mommy’s life easier the next time she’s in the kitchen… where she belongs.
