I’d just bring it in and give it to her at the party…it’s your mom, it would be weird for this guy to be offended about it, and I’m sure he won’t be

smoocheepoo :  Agree with PP – give it to her at the party; I think it’d be weird to get something for the other man that you know nothing about and have never met.  You’re there for her party, it just happens to be at the same time/place as someone else’s.

I agree; it’s your mom. You can give her anything you like. If you were attending the party SOLELY for this other dude (like if he were a coworker you barely knew but everyone else is attending so you go also) then MAYBE a card, but the fact of the matter is that you are attending for you mom. Not other dude. You are there to support and celebrate HER, and there will be people who are there solely for him. And that’s fine.
