8 terrible Mother's Day gifts

She’s your mother. Don’t do this to her.

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…

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.
