Three gifts you shouldn't get your mom for Mother's Day

KFC, Tim Hortons and Hooters all have Mother's Day offers this year.

Three gifts you shouldn't get your mom for Mother's Day

Moms can eat free off Hooters' Mother's Day Menu on Sunday.

The national chicken wing chain is offering America's moms a free meal on their extra special day.

The purchase of a drink allows mom to choose from the special Mother's Day Menu of boneless and traditional wings, a chicken or chicken salad sandwich or a Hooters Burger.

To many, a Mother's Day trip to Hooters may seem unfathomable if you want to retain your relationship. Those uniforms fly in the face of all that is maternal. However, last year, 30,000 moms nationwide swung by a Hooters for a free meal.

KFC's romance novella Tender Wings of Desire is available on Amazon.

KFC hopes to entice America's mothers with its debut romance novel titled, Tender Wings of Desire. 

The book, now available for 99 cents on Amazon, features a brawny Harland Sanders, "a handsome sailor with a mysterious past." After escaping Parker Manor, Lady Madeline Parker runs into the open arms of Harland.

"She realizes she cannot control how she feels," the description goes. "Madeline must choose between a life of order and a man of passion."

The company said the love story pairs well with its $20 Fill Up of extra crispy chicken, coleslaw, biscuits and mashed potatoes.

Mother's Day is KFC's best-selling day of the year, the company claims, with sales jumping by 40%.


A bouquet of donuts

On Mother's Day only, thoughtful sons and daughters can get their moms a bouquet of donuts at Tim Hortons.

The box comes with 24 Timbit donuts on skewers and packed with tissue paper. At $7.99, it's a steal compared to a bouquet of roses. If that's too much, you can always do it yourself.
