A Chainsaw and Divorce Papers among Worst Gifts
When it comes to Mother's Day gifts, it's the thought that counts—or so they say. Deep down, however, moms yearn for a pleasant surprise.
The national survey results released by Christian Children's Fund of Canada (CCFC) reveal that moms don't always receive what they wish for on Mother's Day.
Here are some of the worst gifts moms across Canada say they've unwrapped:
1. A chainsaw
2. Divorce papers
3. Household appliances
5. Oversized clothing
6. Frying pans
7. Oven mitts
9. Vegetable shredder
10. White noise machine
But there is a way out for the struggling gift giver; 89 per cent of moms surveyed say that they would feel "honored" if they received a gift from a charitable gift catalogue.
"Every mother deserves to be celebrated on this special holiday," says Mark Lukowski, CCFC's Chief Executive Officer. "When you help mothers halfway around the world feed and provide for their children, you give them confidence and experience to support others in need."
CCFC offers a wide variety of options through its own gift catalogue and can help make this Mother's Day more memorable. Essentials such as vegetable garden seeds, fruit trees, garden tools, medicine, blankets and health education for pregnant women are just some of the gifts available to honor the most important woman in your life and help support moms living in extreme poverty around the world.
