If your relationship with your mom is rooted in humor, you should consider getting a funny Mother's Day 2020 gift this year instead of the usual flower bouquet. Flowers are fine, don't get me wrong — I'm merely suggesting you shake it up this year and get her something she's not expecting. While the holiday is about honoring your mom and making her feel loved and appreciated, it's also about having a good time with her and making new memories. So really, how many more sweet and sentimental mom mugs can you get her before she can't close the cupboard? Get her something she doesn't have, or doesn't know she needs — like a good laugh.
Here, I've put together a list of humorous gifts that are still thoughtful and not total gags. Because there's a difference between getting your mom a whoopee cushion and a wine glass that has a funny phrase on it. You'll still be taking Mother's Day seriously — you'll just be making it a bit more fun, a bit more interesting, and sparing your mom yet another mug. Unless, of course, that mug has something really funny written on it, because in that case, you should totally get it.

A little humor goes a long way, especially if these socks actually bring some more wine into your mom's life. At the very least, they look super cozy.
