11 “Cute” Gifts We Inflicted On Our Parents As Kids

Now that you’re grown up, you might need to work a little harder on your gift-giving game. Luckily, Best Buy makes it easy to get mom and dad something they’ll actually love.

1. Pottery!

“Oh, wow! It’s… a… thing! I LOVE it!”

2. Some new pets!


(…that we found outside.)

3. A surprise wall mural!

“Mama, I drew a picture of you!”

4. A "quirky" tie!

“Quirky,” in this context, being code for “hellish.”

5. "Coupons" for things they shouldn't need coupons for!


6. "Art" that looks suspiciously like your nightmares!

7. A "bouquet" of "flowers!"


Which are invariably either weeds picked off the sidewalk or Mom’s carefully cultivated garden plants that we yanked out of their beds with our destructive little hands.

8. A performance of our new one-kid show!

(…that they have to sit through. And that is legitimately adorable for the first, oh, 12 minutes.)

9. A "song" we "wrote!"

(Although, in reality, all we did was take an existing song and change the word “Jude” to “Mom.”)

10. "Food!"

Alas, “cleaning up the war zone of a kitchen” was not part of the gift.

11. A surprise "dog makeover!"

(Oh, and we used Mom’s actual makeup.)
