I Need Your Help!


If you are my mother, stop reading this blog entry right now. With that said . . .

As you all know, Mother's Day is coming up in a week. I suck at buying/making presents for my parents so I have decided the safe way to go about to buying a Mother's Day gift is to buy her a book. However, I can't just buy my mom any old novel because last Christmas I bought her a romance novel (all women like romances, right?) and the only purpose it has served is a good coaster for hot drinks.

The other day I was at Chapters and saw a display of The Chicken Soup for the Soul books and I though "Huh, why I don't I buy her one of those books?." But when I went over to the display a different series by Jack Canfield caught my eye - the Life Lessons series.

This looks like a really good new series and I think I want to buy my mom one of the three of these books.

My mother is a women and a mom (duh) but she's also into this whole "positive thinking" thing which I think is what the gold/blue book is all about. All of these books cost the same so price won't come into the overall scheme of things.

So, what do you guys think? Which book do you think I should buy her? Or do you have a whole new book idea?

Life Lesson for Busy Moms

Life Lessons for Women

Life Lessons for Mastering the Law of Attraction

Iryna: Off topic...I am sorry but please email me asap.

Oh congrats!

Also Life Lessons for Women sounds like it would have more of a variety (I'm thinking these work like the Chicken Soup ones?), but really you know her best ^_^

I would probably get my Mom the "busy moms" book, but I'm not sure if your Mom is really busy. If not, I would getnher the "women" on.

Oh wow, that is an excellent idea! Hmm, i suppose the Busy Moms one would fit in more with the whole Mother's Day theme, but Life Lessons for Women sounds like it might be more generalistic (more variety).

Like Jen said though, you know her best. Either way, I think they all look great and that this is a supersweet idea =)

Thank-you all VERY much for commenting. I can't tell you how much I appreciate it!

I'm not going to be any help at all - because my Mother's gifts are easy, there's only one kind of book she ever reads: Romance novels, the trashier the better.
