Victoria Secret and Fruits

My friend needed to buy a gift for her boyfriend's mother and after a lot of brainstorming we realized that shopping for your potential mother-in-law is hard. DUH! I mean there are so many pitfalls and potential faux pas that an unsuspecting girlfriend can fall into. For instance, buying her perfume seems like a safe way to go but the you go to Victoria Secret and every product has salicious names like Pure Seduction and Passionate Kisses and Bath and Body looks like a grocery store list. Peach this and Orange that. Did I mention that the mother is African. So yeah, perfumes and body sprays won't work so after about 20 minutes we settled on a wristwatch. Of course we couldn't afford Audemars Piguet or Rolex but she found something that agrees with the African Spirit of matching from head to toe.
