Let’s be done with flowers for a mother’s shall we? They might look beautiful to begin with but very quickly they wilt, they make you sneeze and then they die. Let’s not even mention that irritating task of having to arrange them. Snipping off the end of the stems and then awkwardly trying to figure out how all those florists make arrangements look so good!
No I have an alternative Mother’s Day gift suggestion: pencils. Yep you read that right.
