Sons, daughters and husbands, I need your attention. Mother's Day is two weeks away ... and the mom in your life deserves something more thoughtful than a last minute, I-bought-it-at-the-convenience-store-on-the-way-to-brunch card! Whether you have the kind of mom who would enjoy Strip-He glasses or one more traditional, check out our roundup of fun gifts for all types of moms.

For Tippling Moms: Fishs Eddy Drinkware
While this is not for every mom, the Strip He Glass is great for the mother with a sense of humor. If cartoon man butts would make your mom blush, perhaps the glasses featuring characters from The In Crowd are more her speed. Either way, you'll be bringing a little whimsy and humor into your mom's life.

For Sentimental Moms: Dear Photograph Book
The new Dear Photograph book, based on the popular website, will be released on May 8th - just in time for Mother's Day delivery if pre-ordered. Make it extra special but creating your own Dear Photograph to include with the book.

For Literary Moms: Litographs
A picture is worth a thousand words - but in this case a picture uses way more than that. Artists use text from favorite novels to create images. Shown here: Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. The 24 x 36 inch print includes the full text of both Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass.

For Rustic Moms: Restoration Hardware Italian Leather Scent Collection
For the city mom who would rather be in a cabin in the woods, Restoration Hardware's Italian Leather candles draw inspiration from nature.

For Homebody Moms: Halftone Calendars
Choose an image, or submit your own, and Candy Sign will turn it into a 365-dot Halftone Calendar. As each day passes, your mom will fill in the dots to reveal the image. Have one made with your smiling mug and she'll definitely think about you every day.

For Faraway Moms: Postagram
Download the Postagram app to your Android or iPhone and you'll be able to create and send a postcard of any image from your camera. The postcards, which only cost 99 cents to send, are a fun way of sending a personalized message to a faraway mother.

For Chatty Moms: Jonathan Adler Universal Phone Dock
Many moms have made the switch over to a simple smart phone, having ditched their land lines like their kids did long ago. Give your mom the gift of an old fashioned phone ... charger. The porcelain phone is a fun place to stash the phone while charging.

For Cozy Moms: Stitchtagram
We saw a post about Stitchtagram earlier this month and immediately thought it would be perfect for Mother's Day gifts. Submit your own photos - maybe of the grandkids, some of your own baby pics, or snag some of your mom's favorite pics from her Instagram - and have them made into a throw pillow.

For Grilling Moms: CB2 Fyrkat Cone Charcoal Grill
If Mom downsized the empty nest, the The Fyrkat Grill is perfectly sized for a tiny balcony. Plus, it has a bi-level grill for grilling meats and veggies separately. But perhaps most importantly - it's totally adorable.

For Old Fashioned Moms: Organic Bouquet
And then there are those mom who like nothing better than a simple plant or flowers on Mother's Day. Organic Bouquet offers many eco-conscious arrangements. In addition to cut flowers, they offer uncommon options like Gourmet Fraise Du Bois and Miniature Tangerine.
