You can find the perfect gift for mom, even if she's weird

If mom is a little "quirky," you might be having trouble finding just the right Mother's Day gift.

As a matter of fact, one man thinks your mom is weird.

"Everybody has a weird mom," said Huffington Post weird news writer David Moye.

So he has come out with his list of weird Mother's Day gifts that you can give to your weird mom.

For example, if she likes the movie "Jaws," get her a shark sleeping bag.

"If you're using it, it looks like you are in the mouth of a hungry shark," said Moye.

Your kid's baseball field might not have a snack bar. So why not give her a "Sippin' Seat?"

"She can drink some kind of alcoholic beverage straight from the seat cushion that she's sitting on," Moye said. "Wouldn't you know it! Those little games suddenly get more entertaining."

And then there's a jewel encrusted Pig ring.

"It's a ring that looks like a little pig," said Moye. "It's $400 and it's actually pretty cute. The only thing is that it's probably not Kosher."

Mom can teach the kids some science while wearing her anatomically correct heart pendant.

"It's got the ventricles, the atrials, and all of the things to have a heart pumping thing," Moye said. "It sends the message "I love you" in an anatomically correct way."

There's also a Skunk scarf, a "Winder Woman" fleece throw, and an angel halo that you can put on the head of a blind dog.

You can see Moye's complete list of weird Mother's day gift ideas here.

About the Author

Years with the company: I started on January 2, 2006.

Education: I was born in San Antonio, Texas, but we moved to Phoenix when I was one-year-old in 1957. I grew up here and graduated from Alhambra High School and attended Phoenix College.

Family: I live in north Phoenix with my wife Rene' and my son Devin.

Favorite food: Lots of favorite food, but our favorite restaurant is Fajitas.

Favorite spot in Arizona: The Little America Hotel in Flagstaff.

Favorite news memory: We have to go back to October 15, 1979. I was a country music air personality at KROP Radio in Brawley, California, when we had a 6.7 earthquake. Thankfully, there were no deaths and only minor injuries, but the entire community was pretty freaked out and listening to the station on their transistor radios. I would not want to go through an earthquake again, but it sure was a great night to work in radio and see how it can make a difference in people's lives.

First job: Working as a stringer for 'The Arizona Republic' at high school football games. My first real job was flipping burgers at the old Sandy's Hamburgers at 51st Avenue and Indian School Road. My first radio job was as announcer at KALJ radio in Yuma in 1977.

First concert: My Dad took me to see Jimmy Dean at the Arizona State Fairgrounds in the 1960's. It was before the Coliseum was built. The only thing I remember is Jimmy Dean singing his big hit "Big Bad John."

Favorite sports team: Phoenix Roadrunners minor league hockey. My dad took me to a game when I was in grade school, and I was hooked. I wanted to be a radio hockey play-by-play man. I used to take my cassette recorder and sit up in the rafters of the Coliseum and do play-by-play. It was great later in life to also take my son to Roadrunners games. Too bad the team just folded, I'll miss them. (Going to the Coyotes is fun, but they're not "my" team.)

Outside interests: My family and I are active in our church - Shiloh Community Church in Phoenix. Devin is a high school student at Scottsdale Christian Academy. He plays on the baseball, football, and basketball teams and sings in the choir. Obviously, we keep busy trying to go to all his events! We enjoy going to movies, sporting events, and long road trips. We like to vacation at the Beach Cottages in the Pacific Beach area of San Diego. And I love to play catch, basketball, football with my son.
