Being a mother is a crazy job. You have to raise these bizarre little blobs known as babies into human-type creatures that, hopefully, can find a productive place in society.

The weirdest part of it all comes on Mother's Day when these rug rats thank you for your love by taking you to an overpriced crowded chain restaurant or giving you stolen, wilted flowers or chocolate that sends you closer to pre-diabetes.

Mom: It's time for you to speak up for yourself and school those clueless kids of yours on what a proper Mother's Day gift should be.

Whether it's a shark-shaped hat, a glow-in-the-dark dinosaur or a bracelet made of dead beetles, we have something perfect for every type of weird mom.

  • Flask That Looks Like Tampon
    Calendars.com
    Moms spend so many hours watching inept soccer games and half-assed piano recitals, it's a shame they have to do it sober. But flasks are so obvious, which is why this device is so brilliant. It's a tube that slips inside of a tampon-shaped sleeve. It's foolproof! People will think Mom is sticking a tampon to her lips when she's really sipping on a gin and tonic.
  • Shark Costume Hat
    Overstock.com
    Even the humblest mother likes to show off a sense of style. So this hat that looks like a shark is biting off her forehead will help your mom feel glamorous, even on bad hair days.
  • Marvel Comics-Themed Sleeping Bags

    Your mom is a real-life superhero who fights neverending battles against messy rooms and unhealthy meals. Now she can continue her battles against your cluelessness while clad in a walkable sleeping bag designed to look like Captain America, Iron Man or Spider-Man. Honestly, the Hulk one may not be a good idea. You wouldn't like Mom when she's angry.
  • Giant Robot Plates
    CalamityWare.com
    Dinnerware is the hallmark of a classy kitchen, but many of the designs on plates are boring and humdrum. How about spicing your meals up with dishes that feature images of UFOs, sea monsters or giant robots attacking a city?
  • Pee Pocket
    ThePeePocket.com
    At some point in every mom's life, she has to take a whiz. But it's not always in a clean or sanitary place. The Pee Pocket will allow your mother to take a stand against dirty toilet seats by letting her answer nature's call while standing up.
  • X-Ray Mitt
    Fun.com
    Oven mitts, as useful as they are, usually lack style or panache. Your mom is sure to be the star of the county fair bake-off when she takes her trademark peanut butter cookies out of the oven using a glove that has an X-ray of a human hand on it.
  • I Am Weird I Love Weird Pillows
    Etsy.com

  • Flask Purse
    HomeWetBar.com
    Your mom has been waiting for you to clean up your act for years, so why should she have to wait 30 minutes in a crowded bar for a cocktail. Thanks to the flask purse, she doesn't have to -- at least not for the booze. It's stylish, tasteful and holds a helluva lot of liquor for the size.
  • New York Strip Steak Stud Earrings

  • Dino-Pet
    Biopop.com
    Is your mom a crazy cat lady? (It's OK. Your secret is safe with me). This is a much cleaner alternative. This plastic dinosaur glows in the dark thanks to bioluminescent plankton. The result is less cuddly than a kitty, but a lot less messy.
  • Octeapus
    Fun.com
    Tea bags have their place, but they aren't as fancy as having the tea infused with a plastic octopus. It will add a touch of whimsy to those moments where it's just you and her having a cuppa while she silently criticizes your life choices.

    MainelineProducts
    Does your mom have crappy taste in jewelry? Make it obvious with these lovely earrings made from actual moose droppings.
  • Chocolate Salami Bouquet

    You could get your mom a bouquet of flowers, but they probably aren't as delicious as a bouquet made of chocolate salami. To be clear: It's chocolate that looks like salami, not salami that tastes like chocolate.
