2012 Mother`s Day Gifts

Mother`s Day was this past Sunday. This was what I gifted my momma.

This is how the Mothers Day Cookie Flowers from http://Cheryls.com came shipped to me. I had received a $10 off any order coupon code in my e-mail and I figured I`d use it for Mother`s Day. The shipping took less than a week, amazing since I pretty much decided to order this within a week of Mother`s Day.

I decided to go with something edible/perishable, since my mom pretty much lets anything else sit in her closet, gathering dust and letting money go to waste. There are six cookie flowers on each side. It looks deceiving, like you only get six when you first unwrap the tissue paper. I guess these were specifically for Mother`s Day, because they are no longer available on their website. I personally think that these are versatile and look like a substantial gift for many other occasions, especially graduation, which the season for graduation is coming up. In my opinion, they could be missing out on a lot of revenue opportunity, haha.

With the cookie flowers, I chose the option to pay for an additional small box of chocolates. I decided to give these to my boyfriend`s mom. I knew I wanted to get her something, since she`s always so nice to me. But I didn`t want to get her something too nice, for fear of getting something nicer than what my boyfriend had in mind.
From what I heard, they tasted good. I do not personally know.

Boyfriend`s mom kindly thanked me and said she `loves it.` A gracious thank you...an expression of gratitude. Is this what normal is? =]

Last picture: This is what boyfriend gifted his mother. It`s a box of cherry blossom decorated petit fours from Noe Valley bakery. I picked them out and he paid for them. They were the most expensive of the Mother`s Day gift options on display. Naturally that would be the one I pick...go figure. They were almost $20. Expensive for 4 little things, but decent enough price for a substantial gift, in my opinion. Boyfriend said they thought it tasted lemon-y.
