These little darlings have drawn their Mother's Day cards. Have you? (Gareth Cattermole/Getty Images)

You have about 24 hours to come up with a great gift for your mother on Mother’s Day tomorrow (Sunday, May 8). This year, try to figure out something better than a 99-cent taco dinner and a night in front of UFC pay-per-view (unless, of course, that’s her thing).

Maybe a personalized mixtape with songs dedicated to her? Below are some ideas.

I’ll offer these up without comment, because as we all know, it ain’t right to talk about yo’ mama.
