Wacky gifts for mom, or me even

Friends. Neighbors. WE ARE STILL HERE. Things will be ramping back up soon. Promz.

In the meantime, get a load of Martha’s Insane (Sic) Mother’s Day Gift Guide. It’s a little late for Mother’s Day ’11, but these are some great gift suggestions in general. I know like 30 people who would like a Chalkboard Bud Vase, and that upside down apron cooking guide thing is already on my personal wish list (and will hopefully make everyone’s life easier).

Need it.

Want it.

Scared of it.

Our mom keeps begging us to take things away from her, not bring her more stuff.  So, we’re taking her on a house and garden tour for Mother’s Day, and we might even take her to a Secret Garden Party the following week. Last year we took her to tea at Maymont. The year before that it was a Segway tour of Monument Avenue.

I bet when she sees the Martha-recommended  USB Flower Hub though, she’ll wish we would just snap out of the Experience Phase already and return to a good, old-fashioned Gift Phase. We’ll see, Mom. Chill.

    I LOVE the Experience Gifts even if I did wipe out on the Segway! Although, now that you mention it, those chocolate mice look weirdly delicious in a rodenty sort of way. No, really, keep the experiences coming…just being with you makes it fun!:)

    I have eaten those chocolate mice on TWO occasions. Once for a lab Christmas party (yes, we were a mouse lab) and another at my family Christmas, when the saw how cute they were.
