Forget the predictable flowers and Hallmark card. This Mother’s Day, give mom a gift she’ll truly cherish: an opportunity to scold you for your poor consumer habits. Starbucks is selling a super fancy gift card geared toward moms for $200. The catch? It’s actually only a $50 gift card. But it’s made from a more permanent material (one reviewer described it as “ceramic-like”) and comes in a beautiful box decorated with flower etchings, hence the steep markup.
Starbucks describes it as “an elegant gift with its laser-etched floral details and satin ceramic finish.” They also claim that it’s “more than just a gift card,” and actually acts like a rewards card, earning mom points for free food and lattes. And she’ll definitely need the caffeine after finding out that you spent $150 on pretty packaging.This isn’t the first time Starbucks has made a gift card for the one percent. Last year, the company gave out gold gift cards to 14 lucky coffee fans loaded with $5,000 of Starbucks points.
