Mother’s Day is just around the corner, and if you’re like me, you’re scrambling to figure out what to get your mom. She birthed you and sacrificed her vagina for you and has raised you into the amazing person you are today. . . can a candle really show your appreciation? If only you were rich – you could buy her a mansion, a new car, or at least a nice watch. *sigh* You might as well face it: YOU WILL FOREVER BE INDEBTED TO HER. Since you can’t buy your mom diamonds, you’ll have to settle for something on this list.
Maybe your mom would like something different than the traditional perfume set or picture book. (Nothing wrong with those, but maybe you want to do something different!) You might come from a family who enjoys giving each other a hard time and loves to laugh together. Or maybe you’re just looking for something to set you apart from your overachieving siblings. Whatever the reason, picking a silly, funny gift is sure to brighten up your mom’s day (and maybe even get her some likes on Facebook.)
Here are some gift ideas for moms with a sense of humor:
1. Lionel Richie Cutting Board
Is your mom in need of a little laughter and sexiness while she chops up those veggies? Look no further than these personalized cutting boards. She can display the engraved sign (she’ll love telling her guests that you bought it for her) and shop safely on the smooth side.

This Mother’s Day, do what you do best: make it all about you. This mug is dishwasher and microwave safe, so she can have a good chuckle for years to come. Who knows? Buying her this gift might actually get you to favorite child status.

4. ‘You’ve Been Like A Mother To Me’ Candle
The description on this product says: “She ruined her vagina for you. She didn’t leave you in a Dumpster. She raised an awesome kid. Now it’s time to give back.” If you’ve got a mom who gave you her quick wit and sarcastic sense of humor, send her this!

5. Legendary Mug
Want to give your mom a mug that makes you look great, too? Or makes you look like a Kanye West wannabe? This mug is for you. This mug isn’t microwave or dishwasher safe, but it has a price point good for those of you strapped for cash. You can also personalize it!

7. Fake Tattoo
Freak your mom out by saying that you got a tattoo to commemorate her on Mother’s Day. You’ll have a good laugh after she realizes it’s only temporary. (Don’t wait TOO long to tell her.) A holiday isn’t a holiday without giving someone a heart attack!
