After four and a half years of not speaking to my mom I’ve learned to stay away from social media on Mother’s Day.
Can’t make it back to Smalltown, USA, for Mother’s Day this weekend? That’s OK. Your mom will happily pretend that a phone call and a flower delivery is enough. But imagine her excitement if instead of flowers, someone delivered a life-size 3D-printed replica of you to her door?
We’ve all had a mother, and so by nature, we all owe one a thank-you. Given that Mother’s Day is this Sunday, let’s celebrate it in photography. Take a photo that says thanks to your mom.
It's Mothers Day! You should call the woman who gave birth to you! But don't stop there, give her the gift that will warm her heart and everyone else's: a retweet.
In honor of the women from whence we came, SNL aired an absolutely perfect Mother's Day Game Show skit last night. But of all the mom-related jokes, none hit quite as close to home as 'Which of These Emails Did I Send You?'. The winning answer? Fwd: fwd: fwd: fwd: all of them.
Flowers? Really? You should be ashamed of yourself. What mom wants is something that she can use and have a good time using. Buy one of these gifts for mom instead, and let her know that you care about the woman who incubated you in her womb for nine months.
Happy Mother's Day to everyone—whether you are a mom, have a mom, are partnered with a mom, or just think moms are generally neat people. Do you have a mom who shared her love of science fiction with you? Tell us all about her.
Your mom will always love you, and you'll always love your mom, but now that moms are comfortably geeky, maternal interactions can get weird and frustrating very quickly. How do we manage? You need a plan—especially with Mother's day coming so soon. This is it.
I won't be able to see my mom today because I'm on the other side of the country. But I sent flowers and mom is happy! What would you do if your mom was in space, like Astronaut Cady Coleman, though?
Happy Mother's Day to the lovely moms reading! And a quick reminder to the rest of you to order some flowers—or buy an iPad—for the most important woman in your life. [Joy of Tech]
Awwwwwwww. Google is just so gosh darn cute sometimes. Like today. They have the little yellow Google Streetview guy walking around with his mom. Happy Mother's Day!
Now that Mother's Day is over and you've given her a bunch of gadgets to celebrate, she's probably wondering if there's something even better out there. That's why she needs to come to Gizmodo. But you know how your mom is—she has to tell everyone what she thinks. Here's how to get her to comment:
My biggest problem with giving the females in my life roses is the fact that they are dead within a week (the roses, not the ladies). It could be a metaphor for the relationship, but this year I will one-up those silly girls and buy them some roses that can't be killed. The LED roses bring a rainbow of colors to any…
If your mother's one of the few in the country who still wants a RAZR, this limited-edition Mother's Day one makes a decent gift. Get it before Prince stockpiles them all.
Even if you're not a fan of Skype, you're free to make all the calls you want to any number in the world (save for premium and satellite phones) on Mother's day.
Just because it's E3 week and our brains are filled with visions of Wii controllers doesn't mean we should forget about our mothers! Yes, our dear, dear mum, the same woman who took our video game privileges away as a kid, now expects a gift from us every year. Right. And because we can't think of any other suitable…
With Mother's Day just around the corner, if you've worn out the flowers-and-candy thing, start thinking gadgets for mom: clocks, beautiful things, even if they're not exactly new, such as this hourglass desk clock.
