Mom Gift Suggestion Lists Suck

No airswimmers for you!
Over the last few weeks my in box has been flooded with "helpful" gift suggestions for Mother's Day.  Amazon thinks I should get her fluffy chick lit, Harlequin suggests a diet book. 

I thought that ThinkGeek at least might be deviate from the stereotypes.  But, even given a geeky twist, their picks are basically the same patronizing old bollocks.  In their top ten featured suggestions: perfume, candles, an apron, bath salts and a baby stroller. 

Because clearly featured products for general customers (hoodie, guitar pick maker, remote controlled helium fish, star wars/trek stuff) would not interest females who have procreated.
