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.
