if you want to be cooler than fuck pay an artist to make a retablo that says something like
"thank you lord for when I struggled in hard times you gave me a wonderful mother" or something
>nice mexican chocolates
like a hersheys?
yeah i was thinking some kind of religious thing at first but thinking about it, i dont want to get her the wrong saint or some dumb bullshit.
ill be sticking with cards and flowers
go to whole foods and get some mexican chocolate. I don't know - what kind of sweets does she like? you could get like some macaroons there ( $2 each ) get her a dozen assorted flavors those are tasty as shit.
if you don't know what she likes, make a point of asking her this year.
you could also ask her questions about growing up, what it was like. how she met your father. what was your birth like. shit like that.
