    But my friend gave me 6ft of bubble-wrap for my birthday once (as a joke). Wasn't she surprised when she got 40 ft of pink bubble-wrap for her birthday.

    Bubble-wrap: $4.50
    Box of chocolate: (for actual present) $9.00
    Wrapping your friend head to toe in bubble-wrap.....PRICELESS

    Once, when I was 9 or so, I got her a pair of earrings that were made of metal in the shape of a horse carriage! They were white with colored insets between the spokes of the wheels. They were hideous, not to mention heavy! She just smiled and hugged me, but (ahem!) she only wore the earrings once; that day! So, if a bad gift is one where my Mom showed me she was not happy with it, then I have never given a bad gift to her.

    When I was 11 years old. I got my mom paper plates for Mothers Day one year. I have no idea why but for some reason I decided to get her paper plates.

    I made her an ashtay once (when i was a kid) She doesn's smoke. But, bless her, she used it as a ring holder and kept it on her dresser till the day she died. I have it now on my dresser with rings in it.

    I guess my hubby expects my kids to make their own money and go shopping by themselves, because I don't get anything for mothers day...besides what the kids make at school. Once my hubby said "your not my mom." UGH!

    Flowers or jewelry the best, and treat them to a nice dinner. Lame ass clothing or just a card worst!

    My gifts are ALWAYS good, because I give cold, hard cash as presents. That way, everybody can go buy whatever they want. I do usually try to get my dear mother some kind of crappy little keepsake every year for Mother's Day though. When my son, God bless his pea-pickin' little heart, was young, he wanted to pick out a Mother's Day gift for his Grandma. He chose the biggest bottle of White Diamonds he could find. The great thing about this story though is, my mother HATES the stuff, but she still has that bottle of perfume on her dresser. Damn, I love my mom!

    And is she helping pay for your Philosophynerd education? Sending you money? Doing your laundry, paying your rent, cooking your meals? Buying you clothing, groceries, gas, textbooks? GET BACK TO WORK, NERD! Time for YOU to start taking care of your MOM!

    maybe when I was little and tried to make her things..but even then mom was never ungrateful. She would appreciate even a hug for mothers day. But luckily, I got her a little something and hope she likes it.

    No, I have never given a bad gift to my mother or anyone. My mother is no longer with me, but I use to give her flowers with a special card, or take her out to a very nice restaurant.
