Your mom is weird.
That's not meant to be criticism, it's a celebration!
For too long, businesses and advertisers have forced the image of mothers as loving ciphers happily willing to benignly accept wilted flowers and chain restaurant buffets as their annual reward for the hardest job in the world: Raising a weirdo like you.
HuffPost Weird News wants to change that. Each mom is weird in her own unique way and deserves a gift to honor her flat-out wackiness, those little personality quirks that alternately annoy and make you smile.
Each of these gifts is perfect for some kind of weird mom and if you're too cheap to buy her one of them, just send her a link to the guide.
Does Mom love nature or simply a fan of "Jaws"? This sleeping bag
turns every day into Shark Week. Unlike a real shark, she won't be sharing the stomach area with all sorts of flotsam and jetsam.
The weather may be heating up, but mom won't raise a stink about wearing this stylish skunk scarf
around her neck. Made from recycled materials, it's so realistic-looking that Pepe Le Pew may decide to jump its bones.
Is your mom a nervous cat lady who randomly plays with her jewelry when stressed? Help ease her worries by giving her a spinning ring
engraved with feline faces (which, by the way, are better than feline feces).
Moms have to multi-task around the house and cleaning is a hassle under any circumstances. These scrubbing slippers
will pick up dust off floors when she is walking around the house yelling at you.
If your mom feels obligated to watch your boring swim meets or piano recitals, make it up to her by giving her a seat cushion that holds any type of liquid
that might help her get through your pitiful attempts at showing ability at something.
Your mom is a real-life superhero. This Wonder Woman fleece throw
will make her feel that way when she is sitting on the couch watching episodes of whatever "Real Housewives" series is on Bravo. If your mom has gained a few pounds, she will appreciate the slimming effect it has on people with bad vision.
Jesus turned water into wine, but it took a Brooklyn-based chocolatier to turn the King of Kings into a divine candy treat.
Your mom will savor each bite of the savior.
Want to show your mom you love her while subtly criticizing her conspicuous consumption? At "only" $336, this pig ring
is perfect for the mom who likes to live high on the hog.
Behind your mother's loving smile is a woman in turmoil. Unbeknownst to you, her thighs are thwick-thwick-thwicking against each other, making an uncomfortable feeling that threatens her attempts at a normal life. Bandlettes
are a type of thigh bands that are designed to stop the miserable chafing that fills her life with secret shame.
Your mom may transferred her nurturing nature from you to her beloved dog. However, if the pooch happens to be blind, your mom may spend many hours keeping the pooch from bumping into the furniture. These doggie halos
help keep Fido from slamming into walls or trees when Mom's taking him on a walk.
Does your mom love tacos almost as much as you (maybe more)? This taco necklace
makes Mother's Day and every day "Taco Tuesday."
Your crazy antics are probably keeping Mom up at night, turning into a zombie during the daytime hours. This sleep mask
will visually show how she feels on the inside when she knows you're out on the town doing God knows what, you selfish jerk.
Does your mom avoid using that smartphone you got her because she is afraid of electromagnetic frequencies? These EMF transformer
promise to "maintain the dynamic equilibrium of the brain waves" while she is close to her computer or wireless devices. Yeah, it doesn't make sense to me either, but it's more compact than a year's worth of aluminum foil.
If your mom was a tormented, clove-smoking goth back in the 1980s, she may appreciate this anatomically correct heart pendant.
Plus, if she gets mad at you, she can rip it off her neck and ask you to stomp on it, "because that's what you're doing to the heart inside me!" Good times.
Does your mom buy eggs and leave them in the fridge too long? The Egg Minder
tells her which eggs need to be used and can even send her phone messages telling her to buy more eggs. Of course, it would be better if there was a similar appliance for beer.
If your mom is a kid at heart, she might enjoy smelling like Play-Doh, one of the most nostalgia-inducing odors ever.
If she gripes about the gift, remind her that at least it doesn't smell like that other nostalgia-inducing scent: dirty diapers.
What mom wouldn't feel lucky to have this giant ceramic wishbon
e? Probably the one who thinks it came from a real chicken.
If your mom loves wine and the Crimson Tide, you're sure to score points over your siblings on Mother's Day with this wine holder.
