Last minute Mother's Day gift ideas. I need one. I think after six straight gift giving occasions giving my mom a gift certificate, that is probably not going to fly this time around. I think the last straw was the fact that the most recent gift certificate was actually to get some new tires. It was her birthday, it was late and I found it in my wallet. Fold up a piece of paper and write on it calling it a homemade card and easy peasy lemon squeezy you have yourself a present. My dad would have loved it. Feel free to discuss anything Mother's Day related.
