      When I was about 10, my dad took my sister and me to the local IGA grocery store. Their bakery had a station where you could decorate pre-made mother’s day cakes. It was so much fun to create something specifically for my mom. We still have the Polaroid of my sister and me standing in front of the IGA sign, proudly holding our mother’s day cakes!

    • My daughter was born on Mother’s Day 2009.  She was and is a tremendous gift!!!  Happy (almost) 3rd Birthday, little one!  

    • Lisa Robertson

      For the last 6 years, my sister and I take my mother to Patti’s 1880’s Settlement for a really nice lunch.  It’s a beautiful setting, so we always get great pictures while we wait to be seated.

    • Esyke623

      I loved the “Fibber McGee and Molly” radio show!  I love the feeling of stepping into the past, into a bygone, more leisurely era, and tuning in to the old radio broadcasts.  I chuckle every time Fibber’s “closet” overflows.  Reminds me of our closets at home!  This is a perfect Mother’s Day gift!

      My Mom always requested that I do the tour of homes with her each year (since it was almost always mother’s day weekend). When I was a younger kid I would groan about it, but as I’ve aged it’s become a fun tradition that we’ve both enjoyed.

    • Liz

      My children are the best gifts I have received.

    • Erika Joy

      My father had a stroke 10 years ago, when I was 14, which left my mom to take care of my now disabled father and me. She did so completely selflessly, and I admire her so much for everything she does. She raised me very well, and still takes care of my father without complaint (while working full-time!) Every year on Mother’s Day I get her gift certificates for all of the pampering she loves, but will never spend money on herself. I usually get one for a mani/pedi, 1/2 hour massage, and fancy chocolates! I moved away last year, but doing this still lets me feel connected to home!

    • Debbie

      My favorite Mother’s Day gift was when I was able to take a nap and my husband and kids took care of meals, clean-up, and bedtime.

    • Pat

      My mother has been talking about wanting to grow her own veggies for years now.  I decided that she would love it if I made her a garden in her back yard and planted tomatoes, lettuce, peppers, green beans, and squash.  That is exactly what I’m in the process of working on for her mothers day present this year.  I just wanted to do something different and this will save her money and give her a new hobbie!

    • Lana

      I loved the homemade cards my children made when they were small.

    • West Eliz

      My favorite was when my daughter thought her father had bought nothing for mother’s day, so she found a few things I received at Christmas and had put away to regift- and wrapped one up for me!

      My favorite gift was a card my son made for me!!!

    • Jessica P

      My favorite Mother’s Day gift I ever received was my first Mother’s day gift – a beautiful card and a small bottle of perfume. It was the best gift because it was so unexpected. I thought for sure my husband had forgotten all about Mother’s Day.

    • jamiesmom

       Last year, for my 2nd mother’s day, my son and husband gave me a “mother and child” necklace.  Something to remember from when my son was only 1!

    • Sassy Cat

      A personalized coffee mug. I still use it 30 yrs later!

    • Aly

      The best Mother’s Day gifts I’ve ever given to my mom are all the homemade gifts I crafted as a kid, for instance a t-shirt I made for her that said World’s Greatest Mom in paint. She still wears it! :)

    • Cheryl

      A beach chair and cooler!

    • Bridget

      I had my son 5 days before Mother’s Day last year, and he was certainly the best gift I could have received!

    • Brodricka

      I think  cards from my sons are always heartwarming.

    • Amy

      I made my mom a mother’s day coffee travel mug- it had pictures of all her kids and grandkids.  She LOVED it and uses it all the time!  I need to make her a new one now that she has a new grandson and granddaughter!  

    • Sharon M

      My favorite Mother’s Day gift is flowers.  My kids are a bit young to get me things on their own (I have 5 kids all under 7 years old) so my husband has to do all the gift-buying.  He can be pretty clueless about what to get me (God bless him!) so I predictably get flowers every year.  I have to admit though that I LOVE getting flowers so I don’t mind the lack of variety at all!

    • Mary

      My kids will make me a box full of pictures, cards and some small toys of theirs.  :)

    • Rebecca

      My mom always required us to make cards for her.  To this day she still has some of the cream of the crop ones.  It always makes us feel special when mom would save something we made.

    • Mcurtis

      I am going to Florida to surprise my mother for mothers day! No kids this time just mommy and me time:)

    • Peggy

      When my son was very young, he was terrified of storms! One day we experienced a really bad one, and he ran into a small cabinet holding many pieces of my cut crystal. He tried to fix the problem but ended up turning the entire cabinet over. Needless to say, all those delicate pieces were broken. I was crying because I was so happy that he was not hurt. He thought I was crying over the crystal. That Mother’s Day, Wesley gave me a beautiful cut crystal bowl! I love it more than any gift I have ever received….30 years later!

    • Jesso22

      My husband made me a book on my first mothers day that was filled with pictures of me and my daughter.  It is precious!

    • I loved and still have most of the homemade things my twin sons made when they were really little in kindergarten, etc. I think my most favorite is when one of their teachers made silhouettes of them. She worked on them for weeks. She didn’t stop until the assistant teacher was able to correctly guess who each child was. I had them framed and they still hang on my wall.

    • Elizabeth

      I love handmade cards and letters from my kids!

      The best present I ever received on Mother’s Day was my daughter, Allison. She was born on Mother’s Day.

    • Nita in Nashville

      I gave my mom a very sweet card that she loved!  She framed it because of the special words I wrote! 

    • Rerdmann2

      My favorite Mother’s Day gift is always the homemade cards that my daughter has made for me every year. She is so creative and the cards are something I will treasure.

    • Cayman Richardson

      I’m not a mom yet…hope to be one day! I surprised my mom when I was living in Alaska and flew back to South Carolina…she had NO clue

    • claudia


    • Well, I guess it’s a gift….every Mother’s Day “Eve,” my husband, two daughters, and I drive to the beach (about 50 min.) just to take a walk.  We usually arrive just before sunset and enjoy a nice, long walk!

    • Herringhill66

      my birthday and mom’s day are usually together.  last year my 4 sons and  my dear husband worked together and built me a new flower gardern by the front door.  Then they planted it with my favorite flowers.  in homage to my frugal couponing ways, for less than the cost of a bouquet of flowers that may last a week, I got a gardent I could enjoy for years to come!  Amazing!

    • Pam Baird

      Always the homemade items from the kids.

    • Chicks41004

      Best Mother’s Day gift …..my kids!

    • Jamie B.

      When I was a kid, our tradition was taking  my mom out for a special breakfast. Since I live 10 hours away now, I send her a package with all sorts of special gourmet breakfast goodies, like pancake mix, syrups, jams, and coffees so she can enjoy them and think  of us when we’re not there.

    • Ashley Johnson

      Best mothers day gift? Breakfast in bed from my girls, and the house to myself all day! :) I am a single mommy, and I love my children more than anything, but I rarely get the chance to enjoy the house alone. Nap, bath, quality time with a book was perfect!

      A couple of years back, my kids (ages 11 and 8  at the time) made me a homemade video based on SNL (Saturday Night Live).  They wrote their own skits, own news, and costume changes.  I laughed and cried my way through it.  It was truly the best gift ever.  Made with alot of love.

    • megan

      my favorite mothers day gift is doing nothing but spending time with my little ones and feeling pampered by not having to do anything! :)

    • A couple years ago, when my children were 2, 6, & 7 years old, I got a Mom’s dream gift…a full 24 hours to myself including a hotel stay at a nice hotel! I got to sleep as much as I wanted and didn’t have to share anything!

    • Em

      My favorite mother’s day gift is a pair of chaco sandals.  My husband bought them for me 8 years ago  when I was pregnant with our first child.  They have held up better than any other pair of shoes I own (and through 4 more pregnancies after that!).  For “price per wear” they are definitely the best deal I’ve ever gotten on anything!

      I made necklaces of my daughter’s thumbprint on a heart shaped pendant with her birthstone on it. The real ones were so expensive, I couldn’t afford them.  My mom and Grandma were thrilled to have a homemade and thoughtful keepsake to always remember their grandchild when she was small. 

    • gaylord

      My most treasured Mother’s Day gift really is the mother’s ring that my husband and daughter picked out together for me.

    • Katie

      We always gave Mom a present but then we would also give her three roses. One from daddy, one from my sister, and one from me. It was a sweet tradition.

    • The best Mother’s Day Gift I’ve received would be my kids…but in particular my daughter who was born Mother’s Day Weekend:)  Without my children I would not be a Mom:)  It is the most rewarding and most challenging job I’ve ever had…

    • DianaY19

      When I was 14 ( 19 years ago :) ) I saved up my money and bought a mother’s ring with the birthstones of myself, brother, and sister.  My sister and I were both born in october (pink) and my brother in February (purple) so it made for a very pretty ring.  It meant so much to me to buy my mother something so “fancy” and nice.

    • Andrea T.

      My boys got me a yellow rose bush one year. It is beautiful and every time I see it I think of them.

    • Marjorie Y

      The most memorable gift I’ve given my mom for Mother’s Day was this hideous piggy bank that I bought when I was in second grade.  It was a pond scum green mouse that I spent my allowance on.  But she kept that thing for years and years.  Only a mom can look past the surface to see the love and thought behind the gift. 

    • Angela

      My husband (and our baby)  was supposed to be at work but went in late so he could surprise me with breakfast in bed.

    • Amypturner

      The best Mother’s Day gift came to me three years ago as I was pregnant with our first child, now two and a half.  My husband and amateur photographer took a picture of me, with my blooming belly, in the bright sunshine under a beautiful tree.  I was glowing.  To this day it is my favorite – and his favorite – picture of myself.  Rarely have I ever felt so beautiful and looked so great in a picture.  And I especially loved that my husband acknowledged that I was ALREADY a mother even before Tessa was born to this earth.

      My best “funny” gift ever was the same card 3 years in a row. My teenage daughter bought me the same one two years in a row. So by the 3rd mothers day it became her quest to find the same card to give me. Thanks Dollar Tree for rotating the stock. The “rerun” stopped after #3!!!!!       :-)

    • Mccaleb

      Twelve years ago, my very first mothers day with my son, my husband made me a card with my son’s handprints in it.  Now, every year, all three of my children have continued the tradition with all of their handprints.  I look forward to my handmade cards and how their handprints grow from year to year.  Means the world to me!

      My first mother’s day with my husband I was childless as I had miscarried our baby months before. I had no thought to the day for myself because I wasn’t a ‘mother’. I was completely surprise when my husband showed up with a beautiful 14 kt necklace and pendant of an angel inside a heart. It’s one of my most treasured possessions.

      My favorite Mother’s Day gift I’ve ever given was this year’s gift (a little early).  I commissioned a custom-made copper and sterling pendant and chain for my mother.  It was made by a new friend of mine and it was the most personal gift I’ve managed to come up with yet.  My mom loved it!

    • Khlc


    • Paughn

      My most favorite gift I gave my mother for mothers day was a memory book that recaptured my most favorite and memorable childhood/teen/adult memories with her. I included pictures and momentos, and ended it with “to be continued….many more memories to come!” I hate to see her cry but oh how it touched my heart. She said she had forgotten so many things, was amazed that the simple things meant so much. I can’t wait to make another for her from her grandchild!

    • Heather

      My favorite gift given to me by my hubby was a beautiful Willow Tree figurine. I LOVE them so much and sadly our 3 year old accidentally knocked it off the top of our entertainment center and broke it. Hoping for another one this year. :)

    • Melissa

      My favorite is a gold pair of cylinder shaped earrings that my daughter got me a few years ago.  LOVE them!

    • Wendy James

      The best Mother’s Day Gift I gave was to my Mom when she was around 50 years old and I was 30 years old. It was a small book that I wrote for her entitled “Life Lessons from Mom.” It was 50 pages long, and on each page it had as the title the “Lesson” I had learned from her. Below each “Lesson”, I wrote a paragraph describing my memories about how she had taught that particular lesson to me, including my thoughts along with some humerous memories. A few of the lessons included: “How to Vacuum”, “How to Set the Table Properly”, “How to Shop Quickly”, “How to say ‘Hello’ in a Southern Voice”, “How to eat Chocolate Frequently”, “How to Shuck, Clean and Put Up Corn”, and “The Importance of Going to Church”, just to name a few. I took photos of flowers and butterflies with my camera and put a photo on each page. I included Bible verses on many of the pages that in some way related to the topic. I laminated the cover and had a print shop bind it with their special stapler. I made a copy for her, and for me. It was a very special gift to Mom and also for me.

    • DDavis88

      Almost 23 years ago I brought home my sweet “surprise” baby boy! All 3 sonograms said GIRL but on Mother’s Day we came home with a sweet baby boy.

    • Gracieann2004

      My favorite and best gift for Mothers Day was the birth of my daughter on May,08 1994. She was the first born on Mothers Day that year in our town and the nurses and the hospital gave me and her both lots of gifts that morning. She was a very special gift {from above} to me and my husband  as I had had a miscarriage the year before.

    • Tarashanko

      My favorite Mother’s Day was two years ago when my husband and three daughters turned our unfinished basement in to a spa retreat. They set up little stations and took turns pampering me. I had my hair “styled”, a pedicure, my make-up done and they ended my day with a play about how special I was.

    • Julz_a_99

      My Favorite gift was 3 roses representing the birth of our 3 babies, triplets the first year I was a mom. :)

    • Sweetk3346

      I always write my mother a warm and heartfelt card about how much I love her and appreciate everything she has done for me. But words can never really express my love for my mother. And when I became a mom myself, that love grew so much stronger and deeper.

      My favorite gift was a group of hand made cards from each of my 4 young children. The sweet notes, (inclusive of backward letters), with special paintings and drawings was such a treasure.

    • guest

      My most memorable mothers day gift was last year when, my 2 grown daughters, presented me with a memoriable custom made canvas print of reprints of my mama, daddy and myself when I was young and their engagement picture. My daddy has been gone for 20 years and my mama is in very poor health. The canvas and pictures are black and white with the saying says “You should have seen it in COLOR”. In addition to this a framed picture was given to my mama of the same for her room in the nursing home. Oh how previous the 2 girls are to me and my husband. Im crying just writing this.

    • Pan_102

      A Magic Wand (hand-held scanner)!

    • My daughters are now 38,35 and 31.  The best Mother’s day gifts were their handmade cards and handmade crafts.  I still have all of them and once in awhile I’ll pull them out and look at them.  They have dates on them.  I miss those times.  Now the grandchildren are making handmade cards and crafts for Mother’s day and my birthdays.  Priceless.

      The best gift was probably on my 1st Mother’s Day. My mom died years before and my husband got me a locket that said “mom”. It had room for two pictures so my husband put a picture of our newborn son and a picture of my mom.

    • lynch

      My mom has always gone beyond for me and my sister, even more so since I became ill.  As a surprise we arranged to get her a day off from work and “kidnap” her to spend Mother’s Day Weekend at the Biltmore in Ashville.  It was the first time in a very long time that we were able to do something that celebrated all she is without having to deal with work or illness.  It was a great weekend.

    • Wendy

      One year my husband surprised me by writing out a list for me called, “Some of the Wonderful Things I Cherish About You.”  Not only did he write it out, but he found someone to hand stitch the list onto beautiful fabric and then had it matted and framed. When I opened it and began to read it, I was thinking that he had bought it, but then I read each of my daughter’s names and the things that he saw me doing to influence them.  It was precious and still makes me teary eyed when I remember it.  By far the best gift I have ever received.

    • Koyalberta

    • Sherri

      The best gift ever has to be homemade cards from the kids with what they think our family looks like. Quite cute!

    • heather

      After alot of thinking, I would have to say the handmade cards & gifts mean more to me than the store bought ones. Money really does NOT buy everything!!!

      The best gift I’ve received is just enjoying my miracle babies! No card or gift could ever amount to what the gift of my children means! The best I’ve given was an amazing pendant I won over a radio contest for my mom when I was about 13…I had to write a letter about how much she meant. That was pretty neat!

    • Efritz

      The best gift I received was from my husband last year. It was my first mothers day. He bought us a small Japanese cherry tree to plant and we all made hand prints in concrete stepping stones with the year. It was so thoughtful and fun to see even one year later how big my little boy is getting!

    • MomOf2!

      My absolute best Mother’s Day gift might sound silly, but it’s the best gift I’ve ever received!  My husband and I were remodeling a house we had bought and I wanted to put our children’s handprints in the sidewalk.  My husband was completely againsit it b/c of resale purposes.  I was out of town the week before mother’s day when they poured the cement for the sidewalk and when I came home Saturday, I had my two precious babies handprints in the sidewalk, with Happy Mother’s Day engraved.  It reminds me each and every day of how precious my time with them is as they grow so fast!

    • Squirrellyec

      My husband made a card with the kids and gave it to me. We don’t normally make a big deal out of mother’s or father’s day, so I felt extra special that he took that time for me.

      My best mothers day present was a beaded necklace from my son, and not the cheap plastic beads that kids normally use, but the nice nice beads from the craft store that my husband had bought and he’d used my beading tools to make it.  I was so impressed!  They were truely after my heart!

I had told my husband I had the best gifts God could ever get me so ne need to buy anything…we just didn’t need to spend the money.

    • Kdblpn2002

      It was always hard to surprise my mom for mothers day. She would always guess her gift or find it whereever we hid them. One week before mothers day my brother, sister, and myself went to pick out her gifts. My sister wanted to buy her slippers because she didn’t want my mom to have cold feet. We kept telling her it was a dumb gift but she insisted. Finally we caved into my sister and got my mother slippers and a robe. That night at dinner my mother started trying to guess what her gift was. She began with the question can l cook in it. We said yea cause she could wear it and cook. She started guessing obvious thongs like pots and pans…we kept saying no. She continued to try to guess all week to no avail. On mothers day she opened her gift and was surprised for the first time. My sister was thrilled. She had chosen the gift that had stumped my mom. The following March my sister died. So every year since then I buy my mom slippers for mothers day so we can always remember that one mothers day that we all had together. The one that made my sister so happy..and the one where we learned you can cook in slippers.

    • My favorite gift is a small photo locket of my 2 little boys. I treasure it

      My favorite Mother’s day gift was a bracelet with both my boys’ names on it :)

    • Jsings115

      My favorite mother’s day gift is my kids. each and every one of them!

    • keilah

      I’ve only had 2 Mother’s Days so far but my favorite gift was when my husband surprised me by having my parents come babysit and taking me downtown to try a new fancy restaurant.

    • Couponangel86

      My favorite was an herb garden made by my husband and son.

    • Tntdean

      my fav. mother’s day gifts are usually the ones my son makes for me at school or somewhere to give me :o)

    • Tara Wimberly

      I always love my little handprints from my 3 sweet babies! 

    • Heidi

      I got beautiful flowers from my husband delivered to me while I was away from home:)

    • Liz Pak

      The best Mother’s Day gift I ever gave was $500 to my mom. I saved and saved from my freelance gigs and just wanted her to know how much I appreciated all the sacrifices you made as a single mom. She freaked out like she won the lotto.

    • Corleye1

      The best mother’s day gift I gave my mom was to come home from college and surprise her on mother’s day. :)

    • Stephanie

      Mother’s Day 2008, I gave my mother a tiny t-shirt that said “Grandma thinks I’m priceless.”  This is how we told her she was going to be a grandmother for the 1st time.  Mother’s day 2010, we dressed our daughter up in a t-shirt from Cracker Barrel that said “Proud to BEE the Big Sister”  This is how we told her she was going to be a grandmother for a second time.  :o)  So, my favorite mother’s day gift(s) that I have given would have to be the news of grandchildren!

    • dolson

      My favorite Mothers Day was breakfast in bed by my husband and daughters, then picnic at the park.  

    • phred84044

      I enjoy giving my wife Mother’s Day gifts that are made by the kids.  She always seems to enjoy those the most!

    • Ms Capps

      My favorite Mothers Day is just a day out with my mom sis and grandma… I love girls days out like that, we dont get them often enough!

    • Erika

      My favorite gifts are the ones that my kids made with their handprints.

    • Barbara

      My first child was born the day before Mother’s Day 21 years ago. I got to celebrate my first before I was even a mom for a full 24 hours. That was honestly the best gift I could ever receive!

    • Addeziel

      My son walked on my first mother’s day…best gift ever!

    • Cmccurry

      My favorite Mother’s Day gift that we gave our Mom, was when we made her feel like a queen. We cooked her favorite foods, made a crown, the grandkids composed poems about queens.

    • Jamie

      My son’s school puts on a Mother’s Day program for the first graders.  I don’t think there was a dry eye in the place.  This was three years ago and I remember it like it was yesterday.  This year my daughter is a first grader and will be participating.  I can’t wait.

    • Sue Kelchner

      One Mother’s Day me and my kids gave my mom a notebook that we made for her.  We had a page for every letter of the alphabet and thought of words that began with that letter that described her and I wrote a little something about her using those words and the words I didnt’ use we put randomally on the page and added pictures or clip art to the pages.  We also added a picture of anyone in our family with the name that started with the letter we were working on.  It was fun for us to do and she loved it. 

    • Barb

      I loved making my Mom breakfast in bed with flowers on the tray and seeing her get excited over the homemade gifts that I made just for her.  I miss her every day, but especially on Mother’s Day

    • Mcdaniel502

       My best mother’s day is every mother’s day…. I don’t have one stand out over another. They seem very proud, grateful, and sincere when they hug me and tell me Happy Mother’s Day. Each year they do something, but its that part that is always my favorite.

    • Del

      Breakfast in bed with hand written cards

    • Tarheel

      The best Mother’s Day present I gave my mom was to graduate from college.  I was lucky enough to have parents to help put me through college even with the extra burden of there being four kids in the family. 

    • brandi

      Angel Magnets that my hubby made with our children’s faces on them.  creative and cute!

    • Alice

      A day without cooking!

    • My son wrote me a note for mother’s day when he was four. It read “Mom you are beautiful like a flower and cool like a camaro”. He was very into hot wheels! The note sits on my nightstand :) 

    • I give my mom a different type of rose bush every year!

    • alh1203

      The year I got to tell our Mothers on Mother’s Day that they were becoming Grandmothers was a pretty great one!

    • Dcountess

      time to relax is a great gift!!

    • Cindy

      My favorite gifts were the ones my little children made with their own hands in preschool. But my favorite Mother’s Day morning was when my daughter made me breakfast in bed! Now if I could just get my sons to do that…

    • Emily Drake

      Last year was my first mother’s day and my husband (and daughter) gave me a Tiffany & Co. necklace that says “Mom” on it.  I love it!

    • deb

      My mom loves a special card filled with pictures of my daughter !

    • Jralbritton4625

    • SB

      a handmade coupon book from my son that he had made at school.  So sweet. :)

    • Trisha

      The best Mother’s Day gift I have ever received was last year when my fiance cooked and cleaned for the day. 

    • Ethnicalchic

       Pans clanging,….. whispering, ” you have to get the shells out before you mix it up!”   Sunday morning in our house usually begins with “mom” as the first audible sounds, attempting to get everyone dressed and out the door on time for Sunday services.  But this was apparantly not a typical Sunday, as the minions were actively creating in the kitchen. They planned my gift to be “the home-made” breakfast in bed, however, the true gift was the sounds coming from the kitchen, the beautiful voices of my life’s greatest gifts creating a meal together—-for their mother—-yeah, that would be me; you see, God blessed me with five, amazing, healthy children—- and the greatest Mother’s Day gift by far—is the privilege to simply BE their mom.  BTW the breakfast was quite memorable and delicious in a unique sort of way!! 

    • Sandy

      A hand made card from my daughter where she put what all a mother meant to her. Really sweet and I still have it to remind me of how much I love being a mother.

    • Happymomc

      A day without doing any household chores!

    • Mlyons2279

      Hand made card from my children!!!

    • My husband hand dipped cherries, strawberries, and chips in dark chocolate. Yumm!

    • Any Mother’s day I get to spend with my husband AND kids is enough of a gift. I actually prefer it to gifts. If I win, I’ll gift this to my mother who deserves my eternal gratitude.

    • Flowers are the best!!  Roses!!!

    • Bradandlauren

      My grandmother gave me the mother’s ring she gave to my mom when she was a young mom to little ones.

    • Mommyjw

      My husband purchased an empty photo box, wrote a beautiful poem and placed it inside. He gave it to me as a memory box for all the special things I wanted to remember with my boys. This was my 1st Mother’s Day gift when my oldest was only 4 months old. 

    • Hubbardca

      I like my kids’ handwritten cards with their poems in them.

    • Deb

      Last year for my mother-in-law I gave her a hand-painted ceramic mug with the grandchildren’s handprints painted on it.  She loved it, and I wish I made one for myself too!

    • Jessi56

      This is my FIRST mother’s day with my 10 month old son, so this year I would say HE is my favorite gift received! :)

    • Amy

      One year my husband made a video where my girls told me what they loved about me. This gift has only gotten sweeter as the years go by and they grow older.

    • Kim

      One year for Mother’s Day I made my mom a coupon book full of all kinds of chores I could do for her and activities we could do together. To this day she still has the coupon book. She said she couldn’t ever redeem the coupons because they would mess up the book!

    • Elizabeth

      My son was born at 25 weeks, just a few weeks before Mother’s Day; his NICU nurse took a picture of him for me, after his bath, before she had to “re-hook” all his tubes up; she put it in a card with his tiny footprints on it. That picture was the first time I ever saw his face. It still sits on my nightstand. :)

    • Amy

      Starting the day with breakfast in bed and then I get to have peace and quiet and watch movies and chill out!  : )

      My grown children gave me a gift of my favorite “purple trees” and had them planted in the yard one year. They are called Red Bud trees and grow wild in the south. They have beautiful purple flowers in the spring!

    • Stoyshich

      My 7-year old picked out a beaded lady bug change purse for me a few years ago. He was so proud of his purchase….I think of his “eager to make my mother’s day the best ever”  face everytime I reach in my purse to find a dime!

      I have always loved the homemade gifts that my girls made every year.

    • Erin J

      When my son was almost 2, my sister took him to a paint-your-own pottery store and let him choose an item and paint it for me however he wanted. He chose a small square plate and painted it bright yellow, purple, and blue. It was the most awesome artwork and it’s the perfect size to put my earrings and bracelets on. I admire it every single morning as I get dressed and again at night when I take my jewelry off. I will treasure it forever.

    • Addasdramamama

      My first son was born right after Mother’s Day in 2003. That was the best gift ever :)

    • Brendakwahl

      little hand prints in concrete.  Lots of love

    • I actually made a large collage of pictures of my baby and gave it to my mom.  It came out great!  It is the best piece that she has hanging in her living room and it is great to look at it and be reminded of all of the great moments we have share with the baby so far…!

      Last Mother’s Day I gave my mother a huge bag of products filled with full size shampoo’s, body washes, razors, and more. It was the strangest mother’s day gift I had ever given her but she was thrilled. I was even more thrilled because the entire bag of stuff came out of my CVS “couponing pantry”! Over a few months time, thanks to southernsavers.com and diligent couponing, I was able to give my mother $150 worth of beauty/body products for about $15!!!! :)

    • Tnjcent

      I am getting a paper hat to wear on Mother’s Day. I have been informed of this by my 4 1/2 year old granddaughter. She is making it out of old sheets. I can’t wait to wear it!

      For  mothers day for my mother and other female relatives in the family, I couldn’t figure out what I was going to get everyone.  So I went to a department store and started brainstorming while I waked up and down every isle.  Finally it popped in my head.  I’m gonna make personalized stepping stones for all the mothers in my family.  So I grabbed paint, sparkling gems, concrete mix, 2X4’s cut in length that I needed and double headed nails for easy removal. I went home and mixed the concrete mix and got the 2X4’s nailed into a square form I put plastic trash bags to line the sides and bottoms.  I then poured the concrete mix in the square molds and let it set up a little till it was a little harder so when I put names, gems, hand prints, etc. in the concrete mix it would stay exact.  Finally when the mix was perfect I gathered a 3 of my children and had them put their hand prints in the starting of our homemade personalized Mother’s Day stepping stones.  I then wrote #1 Great-Grandma for my kids Great Grandma, #1 MOM and GRANDMA for my mom and kids grandma, etc.  I placed gemstones in the stone mold and the kids names, etc.  I let it set over night and then I painted the engraved names as well as the hand prints.  I then put a clear spray finish coating.  I wrapped them up and delivered them to all the mothers in my family on Mother’s Day morning.  They were all ecstatic and started crying.  They loved them!  I was relieved I was done and everyone was pleased. Ever since that holiday I’ve started making presents rather than buying them.  It means more to the person receiving the present cause it was made by you and not just bought.  You actually had to put some heart and love into making the gift.  It’s also fun making the gifts rather than a shopping disaster.  So if you can’t figure out what to get someone then just make them something.  I just ost my grandma and grandpa a couple years ago so it’s been kinda hard on the holidays, but I think they help me make the gifts when I make them.  They are turning out better every year.

      I am not a mother but i know my mom loves when I take her out. She wants to become a chef so she much enjoys food. Also, I am doing my senior project on the benefits using coupons. it’d be amazing to have the opportunity to win this mothers day prize!(:

    • TindallAC

      The best Mother’s Day gift that I have ever received is my mom being much more that a mother to me.  She has been a friend and a confidante and has seen me through all my trials and tribulations .  She has always stood by me and is the shoulder I cry on when my world is falling apart.
