Real Moms, tell what is the best gift for Mother's Day

I recently took a poll on my social media accounts.  I asked moms, “What is your favorite gift and/or thing to do for Mother’s Day?”  I had an overwhelming response of moms who left me comments on what means the most to them!

Things to do, the most popular responses were:

  • Go out to eat breakfast/brunch

  • Going out for a nice dinner

  • Sleeping in

  • Buying planting flowers for the yard

  • Going for a nice walk or visiting the beach

  • Having some quiet/alone time

  • Having no plans at all, but enjoy the day with the kids

  • Make plans for a family portrait

Favorite gift ideas, these were the most common:

  • Anything hand made by the kids/keepsakes

  • A gift certificate for a manicure, pedicure, hair, or massage

  • A personal letter inside a card (from an adult child)

  • Flowers

  • A clean house

  • Personalized jewelry: mothers ring, charm, child’s birthstone necklace…

    Great pics! I love the personalized jewelry from Etsy (their coordinates jewelry is such a neat idea.)
    And yes, my favorite gift from my daughter is always something she makes!
