my exboyfriends mom didn't like me much either so for every holiday I gave her a new picture in a decent frame that I made of the two of us to reinforce the fact that "haha I won."

Make her a card saying what a great mom she's been to have raised such a wonderful,great ,kind,helpful,ect, son. How can she not like it-it's praising her baby boy! What's she going to say-I wasn't such a great mom?He's not that special? She can't argue with it at all,hee hee. Good luck!

Well, honestly, I wouldn't give her anything. She isn't your mom and she hates you.

Well, you didn't give much to start with, but a homemade card, flowers, pictures, go out to dinner with her and bf, pillow, music, spa gift card...Whatever you feel is appropriate. Hope this helps! Smiley

This is a bit of a Craftster pet peeve of mine... People who ask questions and then never seem to check back for the answers.... Huh

Flowers and a lovely handwritten note.... that's what I'd give her...

oh sorry, I dont always have acess to a computer.
Well I dont know much about her but nothing is too good from what I have her.
This woman is crazy.
My boyfriend moved out to get away from her physically and mentally abusive self.
But he will always love her so I have to get along with her.
I was thiking about making her food but I invited he rover to dinner and she wont come over.
Such a weird lady.
Well, honestly, I wouldn't give her anything. She isn't your mom and she hates you.

See I like that idea, it would be way easier, but my boyfriend and I are a little, okay a lot on the broke side and I want it to be a nice gesture. Plus she bought be a valentines present. So i feel obligated.
Make her a card saying what a great mom she's been to have raised such a wonderful,great ,kind,helpful,ect, son. How can she not like it-it's praising her baby boy! What's she going to say-I wasn't such a great mom?He's not that special? She can't argue with it at all,hee hee. Good luck!
On Valentines Day I went over there and I pretty much told her how wonderful he is and how much my family likes him and she mumbled something sarcastic and just let out a fake laugh.

Could you plant something and give it to her in a pot with a note - Thank you for your son. He is a wonderful man - or something saccharine like that?

trust me, don't give her anything. she'll just find a way to hate it and make you feel bad about it

my bf's mom hates me too so i bought her a cute cow figurine when i was in india (NOT a religious statue) because she loves cows
and she hated it, refused to accept it and told every one i was giving her a blasphemous statue.

really not worth it.

I do like the plant idea, but Im afraid If I give her a plant she wont take care of it, and it will die.
But I am going creatively plant my mom some flowers.
Thanks for the idea's.
I think i would rather her talk about something she hats then something she didnt recieve.
Does that make sense?
