{Giveaway} A Memorable Mother’s Day + $100 eBay Gift Card

I found the funniest ad the other day. It read:  “When Mom says not to fuss, she’s testing you!”

Okay, I guess it’s only funny if you have ever been the unsuspecting “victim” of this particular charade… In that case, you know better than to just let the day pass quietly. I, on the other hand, would love nothing more than a quiet day to myself. NO FUSS needed. I am serious!

Weeeell... maybe a little fuss would be nice. A nice brunch out? Flowers? A few more iTunes credits for some books I’ve been sampling? Something sparkly?

For those of you in need of a little shopping inspiration this Mother’s Day, eBay is offering lots of help for the social media savvy via  Facebook Twitter, and even Pinterest!

Need more help? Visit their eBay’s Mother’s Day Gift Guides.

Did you know that 70% of the items found on eBay are new? With all that the site has to offer everyone is sure to find the most memorable gift of all.
