Mother's Day is Only 10 Days Away!

Well hello everyone!

It’s me again, Oliver, your personal advisor on all things Mother’s Day, to give you yet another useful and most helpful tip for Mother’s Day gifts. So without further ado… (does anyone really know what “ado” means? We’re always so insistent on doing things without FURTHER ado, yet I’m willing to bet the peel off my back that you can’t tell me what “ado” looks like or even what it is. But I digress…). Ladies and Gents, here is my… drum roll…


Never, ever try the old “Honey, of course I know it’s Mother’s Day. I just didn’t buy you a gift because EVERY day is Mother’s Day!”

This is a ploy used by many forgetful, procrastinating and now doomed husbands and Dads this time of year. Trust me on this one. The only positive to come out of this situation is you may end up with a new couch for Father’s Day. To sleep on, that is. So take it from me and don’t forget Mother’s Day. Whether it’s your Mom, wife, whomever; she works hard and deserves some recognition. So log on now to, where you’ll get 15% off your entire purchase! Just enter the promo code MOM15 at checkout. They have everything from the Studio Silversmiths 4 Piece Vanity Reed Diffuser Set to the Timex Women's Brushed Silver Bracelet Watch, and everything ranging from beautiful to cute in between.

Until next time,

Mother's Day Gift Tips

Well hello there everybody! The Orange Onions are in bloom and that means your old friend Oliver is back from wherever Orange Onions hang out when they’re not around!

I know Mother’s Day is around the corner and I’d like to offer you some tips for one of the more important days on our calendar. Ever since the 3rd grade, I’ve often thought about Mother’s Day. That’s when I learnt that:
  • Not every gift is a wise choice and
  • The saying “it’s the thought that counts” doesn’t always ring true.
3rd grade is when my classmate, Billy Tyler, decided to surprise our math teacher, Mrs. Buxby for Mother’s Day and bring his pride and joy, his state of the art, self contained, maintenance-free ANT FARM into class and show her that his ants, those cute little things, had learned how to climb out of the farm, once he pulled the facing off of the box! Well, Mrs. Buxby’s reaction was quite memorable, but I’m not sure that ranked high on her list of Mother’s Day surprises.

So, I’m here to tell you that I’ll be offering sound advice and tips for all you people out there looking for the perfect gift for your Mother/wife/daughter/mother-in-law/daughter-in-law/significant other, whomever for this Mother’s Day. Without further ado, here is Oliver’s:


TIP #1 – Don’t ever, ever take advice from Billy Tyler on what to buy for Mother’s Day.

How’s that for some sound advice? Eh? Believe me, I have some more pearls of wisdom to share over the next few weeks, but this is a good start. Heck, I’ll throw in a bonus tip for today, why not?
