You love your mom. And in case you didn’t remember, Mother's Day is mere days away.

But before you splurge on a gift -- such as a day at a spa, a gift certificate to her favorite restaurant, a box of those dark chocolates she loves or even a coveted gadget such as an e-reader -- make sure you know exactly what you're buying.
