Your wife just had a baby, and you think that because you're an evolved guy who's sharing diaper duty and the nighttime feeding schedule that you can get out of getting her a gift for Mother's Day. Nope. "But I just bought her a push present!" you protest. Doesn't matter. "But she's not MY mother," you say. Wrong.
You gotta get her a Mother's Day gift, not only because she deserves it (she did have to give birth to your child, right?) but also because you know she's going to get you a Father's Day gift next month. Don't make yourself look bad.
Luckily for you, we've rounded up 15 awesome Mother's Day gifts perfect for a new mom. And if you end up flaking out and running out of time to buy a real gift, do this: buy her a card, write in it "good for one full night's sleep" she will cry tears of joy, not only because it's sweet but also because she's exhausted. The joys of motherhood, in action. Read it on Made Man.
When you were a kid, you probably went through a phase when you would only sleep in your sleeping bag. We all did. Now you're an adult and sleeping in a sleeping bag on the floor of your apartment isn't as acceptable as it was when you were 9 years old (unless you're in a fight with your spouse, I suppose), but never fear, because Rumpl is here!
Rumpl Blankets (Starting at $65) use durable nylon to create a blanket that makes you feel like you're camping out full-time, even if you're just sleeping in your bed. And if you're thinking, "I don't think I'd want to be covered up with nylon every night," we're with you. While Rumpls were designed to disrupt the at-home bedding industry, we're thinking these are blankets that are perfect for camping, the beach, and outdoor festivals.
Mother’s Day is barreling towards us like a freight train, and whether you have Mother A (for whom nothing is ever good enough) or Mother B (the woman who is thrilled by every single thing you do), you’ve gotta get her a gift. She brought you into this world, she can take you out if you get her another cheap, thoughtless gift.
Listen, we get it. We all start out with the best intentions when buying gifts for our mothers. We want them to be the best gifts ever because she gave up her free time, her trim waistline, her money, and literally all of her patience to someone like you, who grew up to be somebody who is generally ungrateful and self-absorbed. But then you lose track of time, or you go to a store and panic. Does she want another candle? Would she wear this floral blouse? Will she get mad if I buy her chocolates and sabotage her new diet plan? Suddenly, the Mother’s Day gift bar is lowered, and this is how you end up either spending $150 on the sorriest-looking bouquet of flowers you ordered online or getting her a $25 iTunes gift card, justifying it by saying, “She likes to read books on her iPad!” WRONG.
Shop early, and shop with a [relatively] open wallet. She deserves it, and you know it. That’s why we’ve rounded up 18 Mother’s Day gifts under $75 that’ll make your mom consider switching her “favorite child” choice from your brother to you. Read it on Parade.
If you're a craft beer lover, summer time drinking can be hard on you. Heavy glass bombers of rare brews and six packs of extra-hoppy IPAs don't really lend themselves to being lugged down to the beach or out to a campsite. Nobody wants to carry a 100 lb cooler (no matter how much they love the contents inside of it), which is why you end up guzzling cans of Miller Lite by the ocean instead of what you actually want to drink.
Well, get ready for your summer to be turned around completely. The Stanley Insulated Growler ($43, Amazon) holds up to 64 oz of your favorite beer and will keep it cold all day long, so there's no need to make room for it in the cooler. The built-in handle makes it easy to transport, and if you've got 64 oz of your favorite craft beer, you'll be fine with switching to a canned macrobrew your buddies brought later in the day.
