14 Moms Tell Us the Worst Mother’s Day Gift They Ever Received
When you're a mom, there are very few (if any) days off, and even fewer days where you get to kick back and relax. Christmas comes with gift wrapping, cooking, and cleaning. There's Valentine's Day, but you know you're usually better off planning things yourself. Mother's Day then is one of those few days that should be sacred to us. A day when our families should watch mom-centric movies and when they should shower us with presents that we actually love. And yet if you ask enough of your mom friends, you'll find that many have been sorely disappointed on this day. From kids who totally forget, to partners who are completely clueless, these moms dish on the absolute worst gifts they've ever received for Mother's Day.
