How would you like to “Hangout” with some amazing people and win prizes for doing it? TODAY AT 2:00pmET is hosting a Google Plus Hangout-On-Air where we’re chatting with the experts about our ultimate Mother’s Day dreams and most awkward Mother’s Day nightmares. Get Mother’s Day gift advice, get your voice heard, or both. We’re finally setting the record straight and making it known what moms really want for Mother’s Day by answering questions like:

  • Why do the same boring ideas always show up around Mother’s Day? Do moms need another birthstone necklace or #1 Mom mug?
  • Do you think Moms-to-Be should get Mother’s Day Gifts? Why and what should they be?
  • Have you ever gotten something truly awful for Mother’s Day? How did you react?
  • Why do older moms only want to spend more time with their kids, when younger moms want to run away?
  • Why don’t guys typically get their mom a mother’s day gift?

How to participate and win:
