The Gifted Mom

Moms often get short changed during the holidays because they are busy pampering everyone else. Make sure the woman who brought you into the world and reared you into adulthood is spoiled rotten with love, affection, and incredible thoughtfulness.

  • SpaFinder.com has relationships with spas all over the country. Get her a gift certificate that she can use whenever, wherever, and for whatever she wants.
  • To keep her feeling pretty, Chanel has a 2007 Holiday Gift Makeup Package full of yummy pinks and rich bronzes. Chanel just has a way of making us women feel all nice and purty.

For more gifts

  • Like most moms, your mom probably worries about those pesky wrinkles and bags under her eyes. Rather than giving her botox, give her the practical gift of fabulous Fendi sunglasses. She can hide those slight but lovable imperfections and keep new ones from forming.
  • After the holiday hullabaloo, good ole' mom will just want to kick back and relax. To help her do that, give her a cozy, flannel nightshirt from Old Navy and a fuzzy set of UGG slippers to retire in. Maybe by the time 2008 rolls around, she'll be ready for regular clothes again.

You are absolutely right, Greggie! And what's with these "push presents"? That just dumb! Just because I pushed my child out into the world doesn't mean I should get diamonds. The child is the present. People are just so spoiled and materialistic! All I want is to be recognized with hugs and kisses. And maybe cake.

For the record, though... I don't expect to be spoiled rotten at any holiday. Being a mom doesn't make me entitled to more than anyone else. I wouldn't be a mom at all if it weren't for my husband and my kids. And my dad's just as important to me as my mom is.

It always makes me kind of sad that people need to be remind to give any family member equal treatment. :( If anything, my husband and I are more pampered since having kids, since we get each other gifts and let the kids pick stuff out as well.
