I switched from a twin-size bed to a king-size bed a few months ago, and was finally able to get rid of the old mattress this evening. I gave it away for free, but the guy insisted on giving me $20 for it anyway. So now I have an unexpected $20 in my pocket. Two thoughts come to mind:

1) Pizza is always delicious
2) My mom and I decided last month that, instead of traditional presents, we would give each other IOUs for Christmas, and spend a day in January shopping and eating in her old college town. But lately I've been thinking...she's my mother. She deserves better than an IOU for Christmas.

Poll #1659520 Now or later?

So what should I spend it on?

Mom's present

i say pizza because if your mom is like my mom she would feel guilty for receiving a gift when you guys had already decided on doing something in January. Unless she is also breaking the rule and getting you something for now as well. hmmmm. Really depends on your personalities and if you would both still give gifts now i guess :)

I say Mom's gift. Santa also checks in on adults. :D

I personally think the gift of a day spent together (the IOU) is nicer than any random gift you can buy for $20.

Get your mum a present and an IOU for more on shopping day!

Save the $20 and get your Mom something on the shopping day.

Buy some booze. Also, if you get your mom a present with the money she's gonna feel guilty if she didn't get you something.

Buy pizza for your mother? Share a meal.

Take your mother out to dinner and both of you win <3

If she's like my mom, getting her a present on Christmas might make her think you don't want to spend time with her in January. I'd go fot the pizza.
