I tried to once again remind her she is not my Mom and I tried to select a gift that I she would want. Failed.

Do you get your wife/SO/partner a Mother's Day gift. If so, what is it this year? If not, why not?

All responses will remain confidential.

Don't worry, Drew. Mother's Day is on mb.

Andy, maybe you should have gotten her the Limited Anniversary Edition of Coloretto.

My wife is not my mother. Then again, I don't get my mother a gift either. Thanks for reminding me of what a horrible person I am.

Nope. Of course we can't have kids so a Mothers Day gift would be like salt in the wound.

When asking "What would Jesus do?", remember that flipping over tables and using a whip are within the realm of possibilities.

My mom gave me some money to get her a (birthday) present when I was about 13 years old. So I decided I knew what she wanted: THE ORIGINAL FORTRESS AMERICA!!

"Look ma, don't you just love it?!"

She was a little upset, but in that 'mom still loves you anyhow doof' sort of way.

May sucks: Mom's birthday on the 4th, Mother's Day on 13 x 2, Mother-in-law's birthday on the 19th. 4 presents for mothers in a 2 week span yuk

This year is easy for my mom. She really really really wants an iPad, so my sister, father, and I are chipping in to get the new one with wi-fi and 3G as a combined birthday/mother's day gift. We are willing to spend more as she is turning 65, and is going through breast cancer surgery and treatment.

While my wife is not my mother, I am the purchasing agent for my 4 year old son and 2 year old daughter. If I fail to get her an appropriate present, all three will be mad at me.

Here's a question:

What do you do if your mother's (or wife's, when purchasing for your child) birthday is ON Mother's Day?

Call her twice to apologize for not getting her anything?

I hope she lives to be 95. Best of luck.
