There’s bound to be one to suit your wonderful, quirky mama!
Books For Reading And Coloring
1. Mom Life Coloring Book
On the very slight, minuscule, unlikely chance that mom might ever again have time to sit alone, in a quiet spot, and do something relaxing – say, coloring… she’ll love this hilarious coloring book! It’s filled with inside jokes and inferences that all moms can relate to: “This is my circus, these are my monkeys,” “I look so peaceful when my kids are sleeping,” and “Bra off. Hair up. Sweats on.” Right? Show the wonderful mom in your life that you care by gifting her this sweet activity book with thoughtful messages from the heart… or something like that.
2. Go The F*** To Sleep
If you or the mom in your life haven’t already heard of and/or read this book, don’t waste another second. BUY IT! What starts out as the sweet story of a parent putting their child to bed turns into a frantic, horrifying cry for help as all chaos breaks loose. You know, the average nighttime routine for any parent. When cute rhymes or songs like “Rockabye Baby” just won’t cut it, “Go the F to Sleep” is an articulate, honest story that all moms will treasure. In fact, it’s entirely possible that your mom wrote this book. Who can tell?
Items For The Office
3. Big Personality Desk Sign
So, your mom is the COO of a multinational corporation. Big deal! Okay, fine, it is a big deal. But even if she isn’t, even if your mom has a cubicle the size of a bathroom stall that barely gives her enough space to turn around in, she deserves to personalize her space and make it fun. This hilarious office nameplate is perfect! Whatever her job title actually is, she’s a huge, HUGE deal to you and your family so a nameplate that tells everyone just how much she is valued. Plus, it will make her smile every time she sees it, and she can puff with pride whenever a coworker mentions it. People need to know how awesome she is!
4. Cassette Tape Laptop Sleeve
For the mom on the go, working or not, this super retro laptop sleeve will bring a huge smile to her face – and to everyone else who sees it! Is she a child of the 80s? Even better! Maybe she’ll take a Sharpie and write in the name of her favorite Blondie album. Better yet, maybe she’ll write all the song titles of her favorite mixtape. If you decide to give this to mom for her birthday, Christmas, Mother’s Day, anniversary, or whatever, be prepared to hear her reminisce about the aforementioned Blondie album or mixed tape. It’s gonna happen.
5. Let Me Drop Everything Notebook
No mom has more than two minutes to herself per day. No mom ever. Whether it’s at work, home, the kids’ school, volunteering at church, her spouse’s office party… wherever! There are always other people who need a piece of her. If she happens to find a spare minute to work on her OWN stuff (miracle of miracles!), the last thing she wants to do (but she will) is drop everything to help with YOUR issue. Hence, this notebook. All she has to do is hold it up and the interrupter will know that she isn’t available. It’s that easy! … … … kinda.
6. Wine Bottle Glass
They say that diamonds are a girls’ best friend, but that’s not entirely true. Thing change when you’re a mom! Suddenly, diamonds, jewelry, expensive clothes, chocolates, flowers, and tropical vacations mean nothing. Alcohol, on the other hand, is vital to a mom’s existence! Alcohol of any kind is great, but wine is especially delightful. Just a glass. And we don’t need to discuss how big the glass is. If mom’s glass happens to fit an entire bottle of wine, so what? She’s just spending time with her best friend!
7. Shower Wine Glass Holder
As we’ve already mentioned, and as every parent knows, there are not enough hours in a day for mom to do all the things she needs to do, and this includes having a glass of wine. The shower is often the only five minutes during the day that she has any privacy! So why not combine a woman’s best friend – wine – with her five minutes of quiet? BAM! Shower drinking. This genius little wine glass holder will stick to glass, mirror, or glazed tile. It’s durable, recyclable, AND dishwasher safe. In other words, mom might love this little holder even more than she loves her wine.
8. Favorite Child Wine Glass
Looking for a gift idea that will constantly remind mom of how awesome her kid (that’s you) is? Voila! It’s actually written in stone. Okay, it’s glass, not stone. But it’s still written in a permanent way, and you didn’t even have to do the writing! This is like the adult equivalent of making mom a homemade card that says “From your favorite kid.” Except its better. Because it holds wine. This brilliant item can be used as a Christmas, Hannukah, birthday, anniversary, Mother’s Day, or Valentine’s Day gift. Heck, it can even be just a “Happy Tuesday!” gift. She’ll be even more likely to agree that you’re her favorite child if it’s a surprise gift on a random day!
Board and Card Games
9. Awkward Family Photos Game
Yes, someone HAS turned awkward family photos into a game, and yes, you DO need to get it for mom! Everybody gets a kick out of the awkward photos seen online and on greeting cards, and this game has a whole stack of pics – some you may have seen, but most are new. It’s easy to play too: a card with an awkward photo is displayed, a die is rolled, a question is asked, each player writes an answer to the question, and someone chooses the best/funniest answer to the question. Family get-togethers will never be the same!
10. What Do You Meme? Game
- THESE MEMES ARE NSFW: Don’t say we...
- WHAT’S INSIDE: 90 brand new NSFW...
- DON’T FORGET THE OG: *Requires What Do...
- MORE FUN THIS WAY: Did you know that we...
Mom has probably played Apples to Apples with the kids a million times. This game is a sort of visual version of Apples to Apples, with adult content! There is a stack of cards with pics of different memes, and each player chooses a card from their hand that best captions the meme. What if that pic we’ve all seen of Kermit the Frog sipping a mug of tea was actually captioned with “When you don’t check your phone for 3 hours and feel spiritual AF”? Mom and all her friends would laugh hysterically, that’s what! She may get more than she bargained for if she plays this with family, though. Beware!
11. Sh!t Happens Game
Your mom thinks she has a tough life, eh? This ridiculous card game will put things in perspective for her! Each card has an “event” on it, ranging from minor things like “stepping on Lego” to more serious, crazy things like “finding a dead hooker in your bed.” Every card has a number relating to the “misery scale” and players have to guess where/how each of these events ranks on the scale. Things can get pretty wild, especially when mom notices that dad thinks “bombing a job interview” is worse than “finding a condom in a burger at a restaurant.” GROSS.
Coffee And Tea Accessories
12. I Don’t Have Ugly Children Travel Mug
If there’s anything that mom loves more than wine (or at least just as much), it’s coffee. Hot coffee. The steaming, velvety, blissfully decadent conveyor of ecstasy, energy, gaiety, serenity, tranquillity, prosperity… and a whole bunch of other -y words. Either way, giving this double-walled, vacuum insulated stainless steel travel mug will ensure that mom’s life-giving elixir stays piping hot for hours upon hours. This means that she will not only have beautiful children, she’ll be extra grateful for the child who gifted her this precious vessel. Let that child be you!
13. Jurassic Park Mug
For when mom decides to stay home and sip a hot beverage while her youngsters wreak havoc around her, she can use this hilarious mug that was given to her by her most favorite of all the people! Hint: that’s you! Keeping this mug filled with whatever beverage she prefers is the important detail here. If she doesn’t have her coffee, tea, hot chocolate, apple cider, or hot toddy at the ready, she may indeed turn into a Mamasaurus, and nobody wants to see that. Keep mom calm, happy, and slightly giggly with this dishwasher and microwave friendly mug. The whole neighborhood will be glad you did.
14. Manatee Infuser
How cute is this little guy? He’s just hanging around, in mom’s teacup, enjoying the warm water and enjoying up a little relaxation while the rest of the family hustles and bustles around him. Oh wait, that’s mom, not the manatee. Anyway! This adorable little sea creature is made from food-safe, BPA-free silicone that’s also non-toxic and tasteless as to not ruin mom’s perfect cuppa. He’s microwave and dishwasher safe too, in case some little hands happen to grab him and drop him somewhere nice and dirty. Cause that’s the story of mom’s life.
15. My Mother Was Right Dishtowel
Every woman wants to hear those three little words: you were right. Immortalizing those words on a tea towel is a brilliant idea. Why didn’t you think of it? Well, no matter. You can still order this grin-inducing dishtowel for mom to hang up in her kitchen where everyone can see. There are several different designs and phrases to choose from, but “My Mother Was Right” is probably the most thoughtful and memorable of them all. It’s cute, it’s funny, it’s functional, and mom is gonna love it!
16. Oops! Oven Mitts
Your mom spends a lot of time in the kitchen. A lot. Like, most of her life. Why not brighten up the space she most often works in and make it a little bit more fun? These hilarious oven mitts will definitely do the trick! Especially if mom is the type to enjoy a little adult beverage while she’s making meals for her brood, these mitts will be a perfect fit for her busy hands. They’re “super insulated” and made with 100% cotton, so they’re environmentally friendly AND will protect mom’s hands like the priceless tools they are. Kudos to you for being so thoughtful.
17. No Bitchin’ Apron
If there’s one thing that mom is no doubt sick of, it’s hearing people complain. She probably hears complaints from her boss, her coworkers, her friends, her parents, her siblings, her spouse, and most definitely from her kids. How can you put a stop to all that squawking and give her a moment of peace? Well, this apron should do the trick! Its message is short and sweet, its material is durable and functional, and its practicality is undeniable. Once mom slips this on, all she has to do is point to the pretty lettering that hides a not-so-pretty message (with very serious undertones) and nobody will bother her again. At least not while she’s cooking.
Well, there ya go. While these are only a few of the nearly endless options for funny gifts to get your dear mama, it’s a pretty darn good start. And these are all available for great prices online, which makes it even easier! So pour that glass of wine, grab the credit card, fire up the laptop, sit back and do some shopping. Mom’s next good laugh is just a few clicks away!
