MOTHER’S DAY GIFTS can be tough to buy and although it’s said that it’s the thought that counts, try telling that to any mother presented with one of these today…
1. Kitchen apron

2. An Iron

Going hand in hand with an ironing board, anything ironing related is equally as offensive to your mother.
3. A vacuum cleaner

4. An EARLY Breakfast in Bed
There is nothing a mother wants more but to have breakfast brought to her in bed – just not at 6am. Let her sleep on.

5. Botox Injections
Nothing says “You’re beautiful, Mum” like a six week course of botox – it will NOT go down well.
6. Spanx Underwear
Buying Mum slimming underwear will not get you into the good books – anything that really comments on her waistline is a no no.
7. Self Help Books
Books like “How to be a better Mum” or “How to not act like a controlling mother,” are really not the best reads for mum – go with a book token to be on the safe side.
8. Handmade gift
So cute if you are age 5 and under – not so cute when you are 25.
