The Best Mother's Day Gifts for 2011

25 of the Prettiest Spring Dresses

An Online Gift Card

While it’s not the most sentimental way to show your appreciation, everyone enjoys the opportunity to shop for something they really want! Many stores, such as Amazon, allow you to send a gift card via email or Facebook.

There couldn’t be an easier or more instantaneous gift! Plus, an e-gift card is a great option if you find yourself separated by distance from your mom this year. Amazon even has Mother’s Day-themed gift card designs and offers the ability to customize the purchase with a sweet note.


A Pre-Loaded LCD Photo Frame

A digital photo frame propels Mom into 21st-century sentimentality! All you need to do is buy the digital frame, save pictures from years past onto it (by following the easy directions), wrap and present it with pride. You can make sure it arrives on time by selecting reliable one-day shipping (if available) or take advantage of stores such as Best Buy’s in-store pickup option. You’ll breeze through checkout and be on your way to creating a speedy yet heartfelt gift.


A Stylish Gift with Express Shipping

If you want to give your mom something that will honor her fashionable ways, turn to Endless.com, a shoe and accessories purveyor committed to exceptional customer service. Endless offers free overnight shipping on all new styles and the handy clock icon next to the item you’re considering shows you exactly what time you need to make your purchase in order to see your package the next day. Choose from trendy iPad cases, the latest spring shoes, and heartfelt jewelry. And no need to fret over not picking the right gift as Endlesss always offers free return shipping.


Magazine Subscription

A magazine subscription is the ultimate last-minute gift, but it still shows you know a little something about Mom’s interests and hobbies. Plus, it’s something she’s bound to enjoy. Simply pick up the current issue of her favorite magazine at any bookstore or grocery store and mail in the subscription. (While you’re at it, don’t forget a sweet card!) Even if you do this on your way to meet her at Mother’s Day brunch, she’ll never be the wiser.


Food-of-the-Month Club Membership

Like a magazine subscription, a food-of-the-month club membership is the sort of item that arrives at a later date, cleverly covering your tracks as a last-minute shopper, but still providing Mom with something she’ll savor. Present her membership by writing out the details in a greeting card or printing out menus or a schedule so she can see the savory (or sweet) items she’ll receive—perfect for cooks or foodie moms!


Dressed-Up Mother's Day Flowers

You can’t go wrong with this classic gift. However, Mom might get wise to your procrastinating ways if you simply hand her a grocery-store bouquet. Sweeten up the bouquet by purchasing truffles (also available at any grocery store), sticking them on skewers, and interspersing them throughout the bouquet. Flowers and chocolate—what mom wouldn’t want that?!

    • Oregon fines man $500 for using math to challenge red-light cameras

      Few things in this world are as universally despised as traffic cameras. After his wife received a ticket for tripping a red-light camera, Oregon resident Mats Järlström openly criticized the Orwellian devices and the mathematical formulas these cameras use. It seems Big Brother doesn't take too kindly to dissenters, as according to the Institute for Justice Järlström was fined $500 for violating a law that prohibits mathematical criticism without a license. Free speech is a term that's often misconstrued. It's not some blanket to hide behind while spouting ridicule and hate to anyone and everyone. In the US, what free speech does protect is the right of a person to openly criticize the government,

    • Unicorn frappucinos are dead. Long live dragon frappuccinos.

      A couple days ago, we suggested other mythical creatures who are not unicorns that deserve to have their own frappuccinos.  Little did we know, one of those frappuccinos was indeed developing in the shadows of the unicorn frappuccino. And now, with the unicorn frappuccino run officially over at Starbucks, that new frappuccino has come into the spotlight. Introducing the dragon frappuccino. SEE ALSO: Starbucks baristas are now creating 'unicorn lemonade' and there's no end to this 109/365: I apologized profusely to my barista before ordering the basic AF #unicornfrappuccino - thankfully they were out of the ingredients and offered me something not only cooler and better tasting, but easier to make: the #dragonfrappuccino @starbucks #ionlyordereditbecauseitmatchesmyhair A post shared by Mercy Martin 濾 (@heyymercyy) on Apr 19, 2017 at 9:34pm PDT It appears that some Starbucks locations, such as the one in the Instagram picture above, had run out of ingredients to make the insanely popular Unicorn Frappuccino. So instead, baristas offered a new, unofficial concoction: the dragon frappuccino. In fact, at least one location tried to make the drink official with sign that proclaimed it as a store exclusive. However, since it's not a product made by Starbucks HQ, you probably won't be able to find it in the majority of stores and the recipes vary. A post shared by Varin Thorn (@varin_thorn) on Apr 21, 2017 at 9:05pm PDT Many Instagram posts have explained that it's a green tea frappuccino with vanilla bean powder and a berry swirl on the inside of the cup. One post saw the green tea being mixed with dried blueberries to create the purple color along with the green. A Starbucks created this to replace the unicorn frappuccino so we duplicated it and it's yummy!!! #dragonfrappuccino A post shared by Smith's Starbucks (@starbucks.smiths) on Apr 26, 2017 at 9:58am PDT We think the moral of the story is that people are starting to become more and more creative in either what they create at Starbucks or what they force their baristas to create. And then we just slap a catchy name to it. So long live creativity and frappuccinos. WATCH: Woman uses Starbucks Unicorn Frappuccino to spread some magical news to her husband

Jenner, who appeared to promote her memoir, “The Secrets of My Life,” continuously cut off Kelly Ripa and guest co-host, John Leguizamo. At one point, Jenner even turned the tables on Ripa, asking when she first identified as a female. “Just think about that,” she said, pointing her manicured finger at Ripa. “When did you know you were a girl?” Jenner then made Leguizamo her target, asking him how he enjoyed dressing in drag in the 1995 comedy, “To Wong Foo, Thanks for Everything!

    • In pictures: North Korea carries out massive military test in show of might (14 photos)

      North Korea has conducted what it has called its largest ever combined live-fire drill in an incredible display of power . Hundreds of tanks massed on the coast for the exercise, which involved the firing of more than 300 large-calibre artillery pieces and included submarine torpedo-attacks on mock enemy warships. The secretive state’s official media reported that leader Kim Jong-Un personally observed the show of might. Tensions have been simmering in the region as the relationship between Kim Jong-un and Donald Trump deteriorates. The latest military exercise, celebrating the the anniversary of the founding of the North Korean army, is a stark reminder of the damage North Korea could inflict on neighbouring South Korea. It had been suggested that Kim Jong-un would use the occasion to carry out the country’s sixth nuclear test.
