Mother’s Day | Momma’s Boy – The Handlers

Mother’s Day | Momma’s Boy


Come on, admit it: you’re a bit of a momma’s boy, aren’t you?

That’s OK, after all the woman gave you life.  She’s always there when you need advice on anything from your latest relationship issues to what to serve the in-laws now that you’ve successfully incinerated the stuffed chicken.

But do any of us really show her our appreciation? Do we really follow that old hackneyed saying; “Everyday should be Mother’s day”? No we don’t.  So we get one chance each year to make up for it, so we better make it good.

Guys, I know shopping for the special woman in your life can be hard and now even more so when buying lingerie for this particular woman would be completely inappropriate. So let me help you.

And if you think you had it covered with flowers and chocolate, please pay attention.

A mom carries a lot of stress, worrying if her kids are doing all right, are they happy, are they safe, etc.  This woman needs some serious TLC.  Why not a spoil her with a trip to a spa? Get her the full pamper package: massages, mani & pedi, facials, etc. You know she’ll never spend that money on herself!

But if being rubbed up by strangers isn’t your mom’s idea of relaxation, maybe get her something a bit more personal.  Every mom loves a good cup of tea, so get her the right tools to make that perfect cup.  Make it an experience and get her Chinese blooming flower tea and a glass teapot; it’s definitely the most beautiful cup of tea she’ll ever have.

Not sure if that’s a big enough demonstration of your appreciation?  Why not invest in something that will serve as a constant reminder of your gratitude and love: a watch.  It’s classic and timeless (hopefully not literally ) and will certainly be much appreciated.

Now add to that your flowers and chocolate and a sweet card with some corny pun about the timelessness of your love and you’ve conquered her heart all over again!
