Mother's Day 2012 is on Sunday May 13, and it's time to start shopping around for gifts for your favorite New York Giants fan. The Giants are fresh off a victory in Super Bowl XLVI and Mom will certainly want some cool gear to kick off the new season.
Super Bowl Champions Silver Earrings ($104)
These earrings are perfect for the Giants mom who has everything. These are made of sterling silver with emerald accents. The price is slightly steep but the quality more than makes up for it. The earrings have the Giants' championship crest and are an officially licensed NFL product. They will add an extra touch to Mom's favorite tailgate attire.
Pro: These earrings aren't another piece of cheap costume jewelry.
Con: Mom probably won't be wearing these to formal dinner parties.
New York Giants #1 Mom T-shirt ($25)
This shirt has a nice look. It comes in blue with a nice pink accent. It will allow Mom to proudly proclaim that she is the "#1 Giants mother." This is a great affordable item that Mom can use every Sunday and some other days in between.
Pro: Nice feminine cut in many various sizes.
Con: If your mom can't back up the title of #1 mom you should try something different.
Super Bowl XLVI Champions Tote Bag ($45)
This quilted tote bag is an officially licensed NFL product and features the Giants' Super Bowl Champion logo. It's bigger than a purse and smaller than a large bag. This would be perfect for mom to use every day or just on special occasions.
Pro: This is a stylish item that Mom can use every day.
Con: It's not made of 100% leather so it may have durability issues if Mom is constantly on the move.
Giants 4-Time Champs Long Sleeve V-Neck ($40)
This shirt is from the Touch collection by Alyssa Milano. Unlike most football apparel, these garments are specifically designed to flatter the feminine figure. The shirt is long sleeved which will be a welcome wardrobe addition in the cold New York winters. Sizes range from small to extra large so there is something to fit just about everyone. The graphic features a Giants logo with "4 time Super Bowl Champs" printed above. This is a nice shirt that can be worn this season and beyond.
Pro: A wide selection of sizes.
Con: If the Giants repeat, you'll have to buy another shirt that says, "5 time champs" next year.
New York Giants Family Car Decal Set ($15)
All mothers love to show off their families. Here is an opportunity for Mom to show off her family on the back of her car. The sheet includes 25 decals of adults, children of different age groups, and pets, all wearing Giants gear. The decal set is more of a budget gift but it's something any Giants mom would love to have.
Pro: Mom will be the only one at the office with a Titans decal set.
Con: Every mom at the stadium will have a Titans decal set.
These gifts aren't for every mother. It takes a special kind of lady to adorn herself in Giants gear. For the moms that would rather have a Lombardi Trophy than diamond bracelet, any of these gifts would be perfect for her special day.
