Don't Forget Mom

With Mother’s Day less than two weeks away, now is about the time to start thinking about that perfect gift for your mom and/or wife and/or babby-mama. Thanks to a reader tip, we think we've done that work for you.

Helmet Purse™ is a local business dedicated to what appears to be a quest to create the only purses on the planet classifiable as "badass". A wide selection of purses and wallets are painted, taped and leafed to resemble one of life's great treasures - a Buckeye helmet.

Prices range from $12 on up to around $50 with plenty of options to choose from. The “Official Helmet Purse Model” featured on the website scares us a little, but for a one-of-a-kind Buckeye gift for that special child-bearing lady in your life, the purses are a sure way to prove their (your) fanhood.
