    I’m not going to, I don’t celebrate mother’s day so I try not to think about it at all.

    Yes, Fiance, FI’s sister, and I are pitching in for a coach purse! Future Sister-In-Law gets a 33% discount because she works at Nordstroms, too!

    I’m not even sure right now if my Fiance is getting his mother a gift. She tried to ruin my bridal shower and they got in a huge fight because she doesn’t agree with the wedding so neither are talking.

    But usually we get both of our mother’s a gift and put both of the names on the card.

    I’m sending both Moms flowers because we’re going to be out of town so we couldn’t see them anyway (which might be better because then we didn’t have to pick where to go – as they’re 3hrs apart).

    Nope.  She is DH’s mom, not mine.  If he wants to get her something, he can…I leave everything up to him.

    we’ve giving all mothers and grandmothers a family picture from our wedding, framed, and i painted the mat for them. i’m also surprising my mil with a photoalbum, i organized and labeled all of their old photos.

    before we were married we also gave both moms presents from the two of us… but usually i just have him pick his mom’s out b/c he knows her best.

    We got my Mother-In-Law some basil EVOO, pomegranate vinegar, and strawberry vinegar from this place: http://stores.intuitwebsites.com/DiOlivas/StoreFront.bok It’s SO good you can sip it straight without making pucker face.

    Best. Stuff. Ever. I have dark chocolate balsamic for my fruit =].

    Mother’s day was not big in my family.  I will send my mom probably a card, if I remember but she won’t be pissed if I don’t.

    As for my Mother-In-Law, considering we DO NOT get along and I haven’t talked to her since the wedding, I will not be getting her a gift.

    I am being nice by suggesting some gifts for her from my husband.

    We are getting married after Mother’s Day, so not an issue this year.  When I ask my Fiance if he gets his aunt anything, his position is that it’s for his cousins to do, since that’s their mother.  So with that in mind, I wouldn’t; it’s his mother (he also gets something for his grandmother) and while I like them, they aren’t blood.  Plus, we don’t really do anything in my family anyway.  Short answer, no.

    I was just about to post this thread!

     

    So, I always send the FIL’s cards on holidays, get them small gifts on major ones like Christmas, but I didn’t know what to do this Mother’s Day.  I was thinking of having some flowers sent to her, but didn’t know if it’d be weird? 

    Then the clincher came.  You see…uh…I place this game on Facebook. Embarassed I’ve been playing it for a year now and I spend maybe 10 minutes a day on it but I still find it fun and enetertaining.  And you can get A LOT of valuable game points if you send flowers through their advertiser’s website.  I already bought my own mother flowers, so that’s out.  The points deal would be major incentive…

    Hmm, I would only ever get my Future Mother-In-Law flowers or chocolate for mothers day. But I would go in with FH if he wanted to get her something big. Normally though I wouldn’t get her anything. Although I might bake something special.
