Have you ever received a really bad Mother's Day gift?

What Mother's Day gift? DH has never given me a Mother's Day gift. And he is not at all creative to have DD do a craft or a homemade card for mommy.

On year, my SO gave me this HIDEOUS wooden frog that was in a swing. You were supposed to hang it on a porch or tree or something. Needless to say, it got "lost" the last time we moved ; )

I don't remember really ever getting a bought mother's day gift from ex h or when i was divorced or now married again. We don't have alot of money so we just go out to eat with my mother and daughter and sister and DH.

It is a local tradition around here, so even if the dh dropped the ball, the kids' teachers would not.

(I've never really had a "bad" gift, but mostly I am happy just having a person let me know that I'm special, and I really don't care about the gift.

i never get any special treatment on mother's day (from my daughter or anyone else). We go out to eat and i have to pay but my mother doesn't. I guess its more her holiday..i hate to complain but i also always share birthdays with her so its never my day, its more my mom's day (bdays 5 days apart) and we usually go to dinner and i pay and mom doesn't.

Jen, I am sorry that Mother's Day is not special for you.
