Mother’s Day Gifts For Liberal, Progressive, Obama Moms

Last night I received an email from the Obama campaign featuring a number of Obama themed Mother’s Day gifts if you’re looking for something nice that also contributes to the campaign. This email came at the perfect time for me, because I was already compiling an article listing a number of possible Mother’s Day gifts and the President’s campaign merchandise fits right into it. Without further ado here’s the highlights from the Obama store:

This is an official Obama campaign t-shirt from designer Jason Wu. I love the bird, just close enough to the campaign logo but just different enough to look distinct.

Red, White, and Blue nail polish from Richard Blanch? Sure!

Finally, Diane von Furstenberg gets into the act with this bag:

I actually know someone who got this as a gift a few years back and loved it. It’s a Disappearing Civil Liberties Mug for her morning coffee. As the mug heats up, the Bill of Rights slowly disappears as per the GOP platform. Don’t worry, your gun rights remain unscathed.

Speaking of your mom beginning her day, here’s a fun Democrat Toaster in case you wanted every breakfast to remind your mom of her political beliefs.

If your mom decorates the house with newsworthy art, there’s a mounted print of the front page of the Washington Post after the 2008 Election you can get her for Mother’s Day.

On the jewelry front, here’s a Democratic Party Emblem Charm.

I can’t tell if this is over-the-top or totally awesome. A Blue Crystal Rhinestone Donkey Brooch.

Here’s a cute Stuffed Democratic Donkey for around the house too.

 For the mother looking for something to read, I recommend The Conscience of a Liberal by Paul Krugman.

I’m assuming your mom already has Drift: The Unmooring of American Military Power by Rachel Maddow, since it’s been the #1 NY Times best seller for a few weeks now, but if not, you should grab it now.

Here’s some other t-shirts. The Democratic Party has a cool design on their official website. Click on the link so you can get a closer look at the design.

Here’s the Obama Mama T-Shirt. ‘Nuff said.

I’m sure there are more great Mother’s Day gifts out there for Progressive moms. So add them to the comments so everyone can see what you’ve found!
