29 Great Gifts for Mother's Day

It's not too late to get your one-of-a-kind mom something fun, inappropriate, or selfish (like a self-help book on not smothering your kid). Here are 29 suggestions.



Breakfast in Bed 2.0
Remember all those terrible breakfasts in bed you gave mom (where she had to finish cooking and clean up after you?) Try it again. With Wired Waffles, you can get pre-cooked, delicious, ready-to-eat or heat Bacon Maple Waffles with 200 mg of caffeine baked in. Not enough? Add some of the Caffeinated Maple Syrup. You can also get chocolate, cinnamon, or sugar waffles or a variety pack. (WiredWaffles.com, $12 and up)

Support Marriage Equality Stylishly
This awesome Maxwell Dickson Fight for Love graphic art toss pillow from gay-owned Apt2B is like a mini-Lichtenstein that's functional and fun but also kind of subversive and gay. (Apt2B.com, $60)

Hold Off on the Hearing Aid
Created by a really cool rabbi in Minneapolis (maybe you saw him on Shark Tank?), the SoundBender is a smart, simple product: You plug it into your iPad and suddenly you can hear better. It's a magnetic, power-free amplifier for all iPad models. Most important, Mom can stop yelling "Turn it up" to at least one electronic item in the house. (SounderBender.com, $12.99)

Making Sniffles Fun

Grandma always has tissues handy, but tissue boxes are u-g-l-y. This cute little Casa Tissue Cover from Umbra (which comes in purple and lime green) turns tissue box into art and the tissues into the white smoke from the fireplace. And it's very affordable and durable too. (Apt2B.com, $9)
