If Mama Ain't Happy...

When a simple call on Mother's Day just won't do

If Mama Ain't Happy...
If Mama Ain't Happy...

If you're reading this and still have no idea what to get for that woman who brought you into this world, trust this: You're in the wrong place, and we know you're not interested in going to the right one. So stay, we understand and we're here to help!

There is nothing you can give her that would show your true gratitude for everything she has done for you, right? If you ask her, she'll just say you don't have to get her anything, honey, it's sweet of you to think of it.Right. This is the same woman who points out your sister-in-law didn't send a thank-you card for that sweater she wears all the time. She obviously likes it, Mom. Isn't it the thought that counts?

You need to get her something. We feel you, and you're not alone.

Take Vicki Cianciarulo, mother to 12-year-old R.J. She had trouble coming up with a doable idea of what she’d like. With Ralph listening in, she said she was pretty set with her hunting gear. Oh, and she wouldn’t even be home on May 12 (yes, it’s that soon), instead flying to British Columbia to hunt black bear.


“It’s not the average Mother’s Day gift, but I want a black bear with my bow,” she said.

Well, Ralph and R.J. certainly can’t give her that, but Ralph quickly came up with something she really needs.

“I’ll tell you a good one -- getting her truck detailed. Carpets cleaned and waxed,” he said. “We live on gravel road and it’s a disaster.”

Vicki agreed. Maybe she’ll return to a shined up truck.


What if your mom (or wife) isn't an outdoors woman? Well, you're here, so chances are she deals with a family member who is. There may just be a gift – like a car detailing, a day at the spa or a complete house cleaning -- you can give her the next time you go hunting or fishing … win-win!

But if her stuff is already immaculate, you should check out some photos of products we think she might enjoy. Hopefully one of them will give you a good idea.
