    Default Mother's Day present ideas

    The day's coming up and I still don't have a clue what to get my mom. What do you get someone who either has or can get everything?

    What's everyone else getting their moms this year?

    My mom told all of us a couple years back, no more gifts. Now I do not honor that completely, however for the smaller Holiday's I do. So we just all meet up for breakfast on Mother's day, something very simple. I may take along some flowers and a card. I too don't need anything, however I did give some practical ideas to my sons. Like I really need a new watering can for my plants, mine has a hole. I really just want them to do something that says "I thought of you all on my own" and not a gift my mom bought them to give me etc....so just them getting me a card would be fine! My son putting my photo up for his Facebook profile to honor mother's day is sufficient for me, I felt great about it.

    Always with me

    We dont go overboard for mothers day. I think my mama appreciated us just coming by and telling her we would bring her lunch. My sister got her fav fast food burgers and we had a little feast which turned into a small party with us kids. As for gifts I am fired this year cuz I could not think of anything creative so I got a nice vase of flowers for mine and hubby's moms.

    We got my mum body and bath stuff, she loves smelly things, and another thimble to add to her collection.

    My brother's and I (and significant others, well as Julia and the doggies) went in and got my mom a gift card for her hair salon. Seems silly but she's like me - to know that money doesn't have to come out of her budget the next time she goes will make her so happy!

    The last few years I have gotten my mom a small rose bush. She plants it on the side of her house in a beautiful raised flower bed. Every year she adds the new rose bush to her 'display' and we reminesce (sp) about all the years prior. I think she has four or five different rose bushes now and it is just the prettiest little garden. She says it is her "mothers garden". I just hate giving presents/gifts that just become another thing to dust, or another book on a shelf. This way, she can always look out her window and be reminded of what a wonderful mother she is.....evident by all the beautiful, colorful flowers.
    Now, I wonder what I'm getting? Three kids, better be something good!

    Thanks for the idea! My mom has a couple of planters that need filling. I'll see what I can find in the nursery.

    My son called last week to wish me Happy Mother's day. So he was a week early, but then I had the opportunity to tell him Happy Birthday a day early (May 2)
    Since I've moved to Wisconsin presents rarely happen, which is fine with me. Just a phone call is plenty sufficient.

    I told my husband and children that all I want is a day of NO COOKING!!!!! lol. So, they are already planning all of the meals for tomorrow. I prefer not to get flowers as they cost so much and don't last. I just like someone else to do my chores for the day.

    I don't ask for anything. I already have the best Mothers Day present already. My son was born on Mothers Day.


    Who wouldn't love that face???
