I always get a little giggle out of certain traditional Mother’s Day gifts, because I feel like the underlying message isn’t always a nice one. Like… flowers are a nice gift, I think. “Here’s something pretty!” Ditto to chocolate, except then it’s “Here’s something yummy!”
Pajamas? I guess those are nice if your mom likes to sleep (and don’t get me wrong, I love to sleep). The underlying message feels a little like “You’re super lazy!” to me, though. Then again, I’m a little paranoid.
Likewise, I know a lot of people like to give perfume, and much like flowers and chocolate, I think it’s supposed to be an indulgence, and not a “Hey Mom, you don’t smell so good” kind of thing. I mean, usually.
Anyway (sorry, life is crazy, I’ve had rather a lot of coffee today), right now at Perfumania you can take 25% off your order with coupon code MOM25 (doesn’t work on clearance). Spend $50+ and you can stack that with code SAVE10 for an additional $10 off, too. And then you have a great deal going there, regardless of whether or not you think your mom smells.
