Grab a cup ‘o Joe and share what’s on your mind for an hour on this Thursday, May 8.

Do you feel at times when you shop for a gift for someone that you are clueless what to get for that person? That happens at least sometimes. You are not alone! There are millions who go windowshopping to get gift ideas for their loved ones.

When you know a person, her lifestyle, her character – it shouldn’t be too hard to chose a gift for her. Whether it is hand-made or commercially purchased, do take that extra step to customize it with a beautiful note or decorative accent. It will only enhance the value, i.e., your caring about this person.

With Mother’s Day in the offing, let’s have fun and place some TIPS for those who are still on the lookout for a good gift.

Your comments and thoughts would only enhance this TIP Session today!

Let’s GO!

    • Rebecca Swenor says:

      Good Morning all. The best gift is time spend with family always for me. 🙂

    • Good morning. .I agree Rebecca

    • Elicia P says:

      Morning everyone,
      The best gift would be to have a whole day of peace. Hubby works too much and it is usually just my son and I. I get little whole days if any. Last Sunday he told me he would give me the whole day. I went to a Cardio class in the am, ran to the store and came home. I sat down to do some work I needed to do and bam my son comes into the office. I asked him where daddy was and he told me sleeping!
      So I put my son down for a nap and 45 mins later went to find my husband and tell him I was leaving. Yes, he was fast asleep.
      Guess, I did not get my day after all!

      • Elicia P says:

        By the way anyone have natural ways to get rid of house ants. My office walls are crawling with them. I keep smashing them because I can not stand looking at them crawling up and down my wall. I have no clue where they are coming in at.

      • I hear ya! Peace and relaxation are under-rated…

    • Rebecca Smith says:

      Right now for mother’s day I just want something very simple..to sit in a recliner, with my feet up, watching old 80s movies..Pretty in Pink, The Breakfast Club, St. Elmos Fire..with popcorn and coconut cream pie.. 🙂

    • Karen Hinkle says:

      good morning ladies have a super day well I would say a stress free day I did get my mothers ring a few years back I love it

    • Cynthia Dubuque says:

      Good morning! I’d just like to have a nearly stress-free day.. I know completely stress free is impossible so I’ll take as close as they can get.

    • Jessica Parent says:

      Good morning Ladies 😀 The best gift they could give me (and always do) is our annual mothers day picture where all my kids and hubby bring me breakfast in bed and then all crawl in for snuggles and photos

    • Good morning… sorry I’m a little late!! Been having a rough morning!

    • The best gift my husband could give me…? The gift of adoption… 🙂

    • My mom is so easy to shop for. She loves rugs, curtains, and household items. And she is crazy, about watching and feeding birds. So one year I bought she a birdfeeder, and bird feed. And one more thing she loves wind chimes. There all over the house and decks.

    • wendy c g says:

      Good morning

    • hi! I’m late! a day in bed to take care of my broken down system!!

    Mom Do LOVE Flowers!
    With years, we may forgo this gift, but RE-Think it today to give your beautiful Woman, Mom, Sister something she would be in awe as she preps up a yummy brunch for you or enters the house.

    Do: How about getting her a gift that will bloom all year? (It will literally be the gift that keeps on giving.) Opt for a potted plant or terrarium instead of snipped blooms.

    Don’t: It might be tempting to pick up one of those colorful bouquets at the front of Target on the big day, but: 1) She’ll know that’s exactly what you did. 2) Everybody else will have the same idea, so pickings will be slim.

    WHAT WOULD YOU GO FOR WHEN IT COMES TO FLOWERS?

    WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE FLOWER?

    Photo: 1800Flowers

    • I have always told my husband to buy my a plant. I cut flowers are a waste of money, they will die. He usually get me a lilly

    • Rebecca Swenor says:

      I love to pick my own flowers and my favorite flowers are peonies. I suggest getting bugs out of them before bringing them in the house though. You can bring them in and put them in a bowl of water so they are flowing. They smell good and look good that way. 🙂

    • Elicia P says:

      I love tulips when they come up in the spring. However, for a potted plant I love orchids. My husband bought me one last year for Valentine’s Day. Sadly, I have a black thumb and killed it. This year he bought me another and so far so good.

    • Cynthia Dubuque says:

      I would prefer giving a potted plant as opposed to fresh cut flowers. It’s the gift that keeps on giving. Fresh cut flowers die and you just throw them away. I’d like someone to get more pleasure out of a gift I give.

    • Karen Hinkle says:

      I to love potted plants I told my hubby to not buy me cut flowers and the flowers stopped lol but Iget them from my children I don’t really have a favorite one I love them all I have a lot of different flowers in my beds over 75 diffrenttypes I am a flower hooter LOL

      • Elicia P says:

        Karen can you come over and do my landscaping! I have no clue where to start. The front of my house faces North so nothing really grows and I want my front yard to look nice. I hate Hostas (spelling no clue) and that is about the only plant people tell me for the extreme lack of sun.

        • She can come do mine after shes done with your..I am so lost when it comes to landscaping

        • Karen Hinkle says:

          oh well I would love to help you all out but when you buy your plants you need to see if they need full sun or little sun or if they grow in shady areas that’s the trick and see what your friends around you have and that’s what will grow better for you

    • I love everything from roses to daisies, lilies and exotic flowers like orchids!
      My mother has an amazing green thumb and can raise and bring back to life just about any plant or flower… she has an fabulous collection of potted plants

    • Jessica Parent says:

      My favorite flower are daffodils (with good ol simple Daisy’s being a close second) I used to get my mom mums for her garden but she has stopped gardening so last year I got her a potted variety and heart stand for her porch (they can easily be brought in for cooler months)

    • My mom loves flowers, she doesn’t have a favorite she loves the all. She got flowers everywhere.

    • wendy c g says:

      Sunflowers are my favorite

    • wendy c g says:

      I like to give and receive potted plants, that way they last and can be enjoyed all the time.

    • a colorful cactus is awesome – it’s very low maintenance …

    PICTURE FRAME

    Moms Always LOVE Pictures!
    Have you noticed how they stir up precious memories when you open your wallet and see a picture of your kiddo and family? Or when you walk out or walk in and the house greets you with those framed pictures of your loved ones?

    So, dismiss NOT a good Picture!

    Do: Instead of cramming hundreds of mediocre photos onto a tiny screen, focus on one outstanding picture. Pick (or take) a high-quality snap and spring for a nice, large print with a tasteful frame.

    Don’t: “Mom loves to display pictures. I should get her a digital picture frame.” No. Stop. We’ve been over this; nobody really wants one of those, and even if they do, they realize the error of their ways soon after getting one.

    DO YOU KNOW HOW MANY PICTURES YOU HOUSE ON THE WALLS OF YOUR HOUSE?

    WHERE ELSE DO YOU PLACE THOSE SPECIAL PICTURES?

  5. CoffeeTime says:

    amcoffee
    personalized jewelry

    PERSONALIZE! Jewelry + Personal Touch = LOVE

    Do: How about proving you put in a little effort by ordering a custom piece from Etsy instead? While it’s true that those merchants may start with store-bought components, you’ll be able to select birthstones and have names and dates engraved, resulting in a one-of-a-kind treasure. At this late hour, though, be sure to check into shipping deadlines by messaging the sellers.

    Don’t: Whether you’re shopping department stores or jewelry specialists, chances are you’ve seen a lot of generic “mom” pendants; they’re cute when they come from kids, but they become less adorable if you’re a fully-grown adult.

    WHAT WOULD YOU LIKE FOR YOURSELF IN CASE THERE’S A PIECE OF JEWELRY IS ON ITS WAY?

  6. CoffeeTime says:

    amcoffee
    SUNFLOWERS

    MOM LOVES CLOTHES & CELEBRATES HER PESONAL SPACE –> HER CLOSET!

    Do: Play it safe and get her a gift card to a store she frequents, so she can shop for something she likes, and try it on before she buys.

    Don’t: Buying clothes as a gift is a notoriously tricky task. Pick up something that’s too small, and mom will think you think she’s fat. Too big, and pretty much the same thing will happen. And even if you do choose the right size, you may fall into the trap of projecting your style onto mom, and she’ll still either have to return the item or banish it to the back of the closet or the giveaway pile.

    WHAT IS YOUR SPECIAL PLACE IN YOUR HOUSE WHERE YOU FEEL RELAXED AND TRULY OWN IT?

  7. CoffeeTime says:

    amcoffee
    STUFFED PEPPERS

    MOM LOVES TO COOK. WHY NOT ALLOW HER TO CELEBRATE A HEARTY, YUMMY, MAYBE EVEN CREATIVE MEAL?

    Do: If you can’t afford to take her somewhere nicer than the norm, trade spending money for spending time by preparing a meal yourself. Mom probably does this daily, so she’ll appreciate the effort you put in. Just make sure you pay attention to the details so the result turns out to be really special.

    Don’t: There’s nothing wrong with treating mom to dinner, but since this is a special occasion, you should avoid ho-hum options that she might go to on any given day.

    WHO’S COOKING THIS MOTHER’S DAY OR WEEKEND FOR YOU, MY DEAR GALZ?

  8. CoffeeTime says:

    amcoffee
    FAMILY PLAYING SOCCER

    Do: A better idea is to strongly encourage a real getaway to relax, by purchasing her an affordable vacation, be it actual travel (there are always mind-bogglingly cheap cruises) or just a discounted night in a luxury hotel 5 miles from home.
    OR, JUST GO TO YOUR FAVORITE PARK FOR A RELAXING WALK OR A PICNIC!

    Don’t: Items like foot spas and massage gadgets may seem like presents that will help mom relax and rejuvenate, but in reality those things will probably get used once or twice, then sentenced to life in the garage, because they take up time and space that mom just can’t spare most days.

    WHAT WOULD YOU LIKE FOR YOUR RELAXING WEEKEND?

  9. Rebecca Swenor says:

    I would have to say just watching movies with the family and playing board games. Also just sitting talking about our futures. I haven’t sat down together with family and talked about the future together, It has always been separately.

  11. Virginia Rogers says:

    Good Afternoon all!! Sorry missed today, Congrats winners!! 🙂 What great topics and ideas, love the flowers that was my grandma 100% we always knew what to get her she loved all kinds inside and out side her house. My mom on other hand much more difficult especially this year with funds low and she does not care for flowers like my grandma and I mainly because she has 3 cats always worries about eating. We have gotten her many personalized items through the years. My daughter has decided as it is her first year as a mom she is taking everyone out to dinner so none of us moms have to cook so will be different. As for gifts I asked for nothing just excited to spend time with family, as for my mom my daughter said will pick something for her, this has been a bad year for me.and will be from all of us. <3 that I have raised such a caring daughter who is now become a wonderful mother also. 🙂
