@18: If OP says it's her Mothers Day gift, but doesn't say what, it'll still be a surprise. Plus OP could also say they were using a GAP bag to hold the gift and that they got the gift at a different store. Not saying anything makes OP seem a bit suspicious, even though their intentions were good.
Key words you used there, "as a kid". Her mother should know better. Whether or not they had prying eyes, adults should afford their children some privacy, and punishing them for wanting it is wrong. If my mother had grounded me in this situation I would have then handed her the bag and said "Glad it was worth it trying to make your mothers day gift a surprise, enjoy"

Joke's on you, she could've worn the clothes (what else do you buy from Gap?) under her clothes. Or wear the gift in plain sight, even. She compliments it? "I'm glad you like it, it's yours!" Mind blown, best Mother's Day ever.
