Just so you know, Mother’s Day ‘08 is Sunday May 11th. If you’re like me it sneaks up. Probably because I agonize over what to get my mom every year.

Here’s how bad I am. My mom was visiting from Nebraska last week and I treated her to a mother-daughter afternoon tea at a local hotel. While sipping our White Berry Loose Leaf, I glanced over and saw a Mother’s Day brochure on the table next to us. In a flash I thought, wow, how do I parlay this little outing into her Mother’s Day gift…a month early? It was all I could do to stop from raising my tea cup, right then and there, and saying, “Surprise! Happy Mother’s Day!”

In the same instant I knew I wouldn’t get away with it, so I decided instead to use my noggin and find a relevant gift…from my own company…shipped on time. With nearly 42,000 products to choose from at Allegro Medical, I couldn’t miss.

In my search, I found the best Mother’s Day gifts for different Mom “types”. Hopefully this will save you a little time, money and agony.
