Ideas for A thoughtful Mother's Day Gift?

Asked by sjmc1989 (5489points) May 6th, 2009

My mom is my best friend and I want to do something very sweet for her this Mother’s Day. Im usually really good at coming up with creative ideas but Im stumped. Is there any gifts you have ever recieved or maybe even given that you thought was especially thoughtful. I would love and welcome any creative ideas.

Take her out for breakfast/brunch, and while you’re there give her a gorgeous bouquet of flowers and a card. Just spend time with her on that day, if you can. It meant so much to my Mom when one by one her kids would show up at her door and would stay for a visit. A gift/card is always nice, but, having you there, I’m sure means more to her than anything.

I want to hear that my oldest son has recovered completely from the severe stroke he suffered a hear and a half ago. That would be the greatest Mother’s Day gift ever.

Mom’s always love something homemade. I would make her a card, maybe have dinner with her, and time! Spending time together is a huge thing that will put a smile on her face. Give that day to her, and make it the best! Good luck!

Something your mom wouldn’t do for herself normally or by herself. I’m taking mine to have a massage and pedicure because those are things she won’t spend on for herself. If we’ve time, I’ll also drive her an hour out of town to see some gardens she found in Sunset magazine but won’t go to see by herself and has no local friends to accompany her.

@ccbatx that’s a good idea.

My mom always is the one cooking. It would be nice to prepare her a good meal for a change.
