Founder's Story of WhatToGetMom.com
I always had a difficult time finding and choosing a gift for my mom, aunt, grandmother, girlfriend, and all other women in my life. My anxiety level would go through the roof. I didn’t know where to start, how to shop, or what to look for when shopping for the women in my life. This taught me a few things about what was wrong with online shopping, not being an active listener or observer to those around me, and the nuisance of websites overcrowding their page with too many selections of merchandise.
Like most men I was a surface level gift-giver. On Mother’s day and Birthdays I used to give my mom either flowers or a gift card. As her son, I gave her gifts that mirrored what my mom’s friends and relatives would give on the celebrated occasion. I never offered her something more thoughtful, sentimental, or genuine. I was uninspiring, but worst of all I never took the time to learn my mom’s interests. When I gave her a gift card; too offer an alternative from the generic gift of flowers, it was essentially me telling her to get the gift herself. I was stumped by the hardest question, What To Get Mom?
WhatToGetMom.com brings your lifestyle in-style, and even if you never asked what your mom wanted seeing different selections of interests will help your narrow that decision to the right choice.
