Perfect Mother’s Day Gifts? You Might Want to Stay Away From the ‘Scarf Flask.’

So, you’re thinking about a gift for mom with Mother’s Day this Sunday. You’ve left it to the last minute though haven’t you? Heck, according to a recent poll 74% of people plan Mother’s Day less than a week ahead of time . . . 6% make no plans at all and just WING IT . . . and only 33% bother to make a reservation if they’re taking their mom to a restaurant.

If this is the case with gift buying, well, three quarters of you are thinking about what to get now, this week. Yesterday, on air, I mentioned a product that is being marketed as “the perfect Mother’s Day gift.” Now, if you heard this and thought ‘Yeh, that sounds like it would work for my mom’ then you are in trouble as I’m not sure mom would find the ‘Scarf Flask’ to be really all that special. Plus if it is the perfect gift, well you and your mom need to talk.

I mean they do come in many fashionable styles and colors but, well, having not be that high on Mother’s Day list may just be me.

There’s some very cool local ideas here from Hudson Valley Good Stuff. has handmade gifts items from ‘pioneering tastemakers’ in Brooklyn and the Hudson Valley.

Is mom a baseball fan? Maybe the Hudson Valley Renegades can help you out on Sunday.

How about a spa treatment with Hudson Valley Resort.

Experience the Hudson Valley is a great local resource too.

If you don’t have a lot to spend here’s a couple of links from US News and World Report.

Not a lot of money but still want mom to get a smile on Sunday?

How about another that’s also thrifty?

Some nice ideas from Huffington Post too.

Guys? Here’s a great one from Ask Men.

As to gifts that are more in line with the ‘Scarf Flask’ here’s some stuff to most probably avoid.

I especially like the tips on parenting book.

Now go make that brunch or dinner reservation by the way.
