5 Gifts You Should Not Present To Your Mom On Mother’s Day

Here are 11 Mother’s Day gifts to strike from your brain immediately.

Repeat: do not give your mother these items for Mother’s Day. Or any day, really.

1. Macaroni art

Sorry, adult child. These works of art, while delightful, don’t fly if you’re over age eight.

2. Gwyneth Paltrow’s favorite bee sting treatment

Letting your mother get stung by bees is not a good gift.

3. A lame IOU note

As all the world’s great poets have said, “Why don’t you just do the thing now?”

4. A “Mom” tattoo on your own flesh

She is a good woman. Don’t put her through this.

5. Any dessert involving fondant

Fondant shapes might be adorable, but don’t let them deceive you: fondant tastes like sugar plastic.

Fon-don’t give your blessed mother fondant.

6. Handmade packaging if you are not a kid or an artist

It’s not cute anymore. But don’t worry, you still are!

7. A framed photo of you without your siblings

If you aren’t the favorite sibling now, this isn’t going to change things.

8. A card that is on sale

Just spend one more dollar.

9. A pet of any kind

We can’t trust you to remember which animals your mother is allergic to.

10. A passive-aggressive gift

What are you, a monster?

Keep them for yourself. If your mom wants to see Hamilton, she can enter the lottery on her own damn time.
