Top 10 Best Mother’s Day Gifts for Rock Moms
There are many different types of moms: those who love the outdoors, moms with full-time jobs and stay-at-home moms. I happen to be one of those moms who works hard and rocks harder! So I’ve put together this list of the top 10 best gifts for the rocker moms like me.
Tickets to a Rock Show
What rockin' mom wouldn't want to go to a great rock show? We've got our own 20th Birthday Bash, featuring All That Remains, The Pretty Reckless, Joan Jett and Heaven's Basement, coming up Mother's Day weekend. But in a pinch, any great rock show will do!
This guitar wouldn't necessarily be for playing; it's for hanging in the rock memorabilia room. Signed by mom's favorite band, it would be perfect for showing off to friends and family. And OK, maybe for a little shredding every now and then.
Signed CD/Other Memorabilia
In the car or at home, mom wants to enjoy her favorite rock tunes. But is a CD enough? Mom's been super-good this year (like every year!), so why not get her a super gift? Maybe an autographed one?
The photo here is from my own signed CD collection, but there's other rock memorabilia you could have signed for your favorite metal goddess.
Posters make great gifts, and if you want to add a little extra flair, get the poster framed. My signed memorabilia collection includes posters, CDs, T-shirts, drum heads and drum sticks.
Subscription to Revolver Magazine
Mom likes to keep up with the latest rock news, right? A subscription to Revolver would be right up her alley. She can stay in-the-know on the hottest metal albums, get song reviews and even check out photos of her favorite rockin' bands.
Taylor Momsen of The Pretty Reckless was on a recent cover, and Joan Jett won the magazine's Golden God award in April. Rocker moms in the area are finding babysitters now so they can see them perform live together May 10.
Gift Certificate to Clothing Store
Mom can look cool and protect her delicate eyes, too. Sunglass Warehouse has some of the hottest styles specifically for rock star moms.
She's got the rock star outfit, the hot boots. Now, it's time to accessorize! Help mom nail the rock flair with a spiky bracelet, big flashy ring, choker and/or dangly earrings. I found that Rocker Jewelry has it all.
Tattoos and/or a Piercing
If mom is into tattoos and piercings, get her a gift certificate to one of her favorite local places to get inked.
Does mom like to rock and read, too? Of course, she's a smart gal! A book about her favorite musician or band would be ideal.
