This will come as no surprise to many of you, but I am a touch sarcastic. And less than sentimental.
Which is why holidays, with their flowers and boo hoo cards, kinda leave me out in the cold. It's not that I don't love people, for I clearly do - I'm just not the mushy gushy type of person. I'm far more comfortable with a humorous gift, and if I can find one that is just slightly sarcastic - even better.
Personal Creations came to the rescue for me. Looking through the online catalog for gift ideas for Mothers Day, I wasn't sure exactly what I wanted - but I knew that I was in the right place when I saw a personalized casserole dish labeled "Kate's Kickasserole".
Ahem. Again, I wanted to buy for myself, but this time I resisted. Must.Buy.For.Mom.
I looked through a couple of pages and stopped when I saw the throw.
I smile because you are my mother. I laugh because there's nothing you can do about it.
I chose to personalize it, adding the words "To Mom Love Carmen". I placed the order on Tuesday, and it arrived at my house Friday night, via FedEx.
It was exactly as I imagined. Heavier than anticipated, this throw is well made and seems as if it will stand up to the reality of real life. (That is, kids all around and we know that kids don't respect ANYTHING.)
If you are looking for a personalized gift for your mom, you should really look at Personalized Creations. Especially if you need a gift that's just a wee bit sarcastic.
