1. For starters, if you owe anyone in this world a gift – it's your mom.

I mean, she clothed you, fed you, and gave you unconditional love. So, it's only fair.

2. And through all your Valentine's Days – no matter what your relationship status – your mom has loved you.

It's already the most long-term relationship you've been in.

3. Your mom had your back through all those jerky exes.

And nothing healed your wounds like listening to your mom tell you how much better you were than them.

4. And even if you get in a fight with your mom, it won't ruin the day because you're both total pros at making up.

5. Valentine's Day is all about showing the people you love that you appreciate them. And well, your mom IS the best.

6. And if you decide to go out to dinner, chances are your mom will ~insist~ on paying...

Which is great because you're probably broke.

7. Or if you decide to stay in, chances are she will still ~insist~ on cooking.

Which is great because you probably suck at cooking.

8. You mom protects your heart like it's her job already, so you know she's a safe bet for a valentine.

No chance of things getting too screwed up with your mom as your valentine!

10. There's no one else that can boost your confidence like your mom – she's your biggest fan.

You'll be feeling like a million bucks after a good date with mom.

She's the only person who can give you honest advice without you hating her.

12. No one else knows how to make you laugh 'til your cheeks hurt like your mom.
