Anything with a Motor
Unless you're buying her a new car, anything that has a motor is going to be a device that has something to do with work - a washing machine, an ice cream maker, an electric can opener. This is a whole area of gadgets you want to avoid. And no, for all you dirty birds out there, motorized toys for her pleasure are not appropriate for Mother's Day. This day is about her as a caregiver who deserves gratitude and indulging, it's not about her... you know.

Last year for Mother's Day, I got my wife one of those machines that make seltzer water. I thought it was pretty cool, 'cause it has this canister of compressed air that you slot into it, and when you "seltzer-ize" water, the machine makes this fantastic noise, like a sick goose is honking up phlegm in your kitchen! My wife was less than excited. "But you love seltzer," I said. "And now you'll never have to buy it, or wish we had it around. You can make your own!" "Brian, it's an appliance." And that, my friends, is how I learned: There are some presents that, no matter how much they make sense to you, are not appropriate for Mother's Day! So that you don't make the same mistake I did, I hereby present to you my guide for what NOT to buy that special mom in your life. - By Brian Gresko
