"To give to mom before the ceremony starts." -yeah, great idea if you want your mom to cry hysterically before you even walk down the aisle. Better idea: sneak it into her purse where she can easily see it, and let her find it on her own.
Oh yes, some women/MEN just don't get it. It's not all about you, and your shoes. OR-if you are the MAN. It's not ALL about YOU and taking everything the woman gives because she loves you and never refilling her love tank!
