Mother's Day is one of the biggest gift-giving days of the year -- and definitely the least imaginative.
Moms, more than anyone, help us define our identity and uniqueness, but when it's time to honor her, most people stick to boring meals at a safe chain restaurant, flowers or even housecleaning, instead of looking for gifts that express the one-of-a-kind personality of the woman who gave them life.
At the risk of sounding like an ad shilling fast food, we at HuffPost Weird News want to help Americans break out of their same old Mother's Day gift rut by offering suggestions that are ... well, different, to say the least.
If you're a mother who likes one of these gifts, print it out and put it in a prominent place. If you're a wife or a mother of a certain HuffPost Weird News writer, stop reading -- it will spoil the surprise.
