What moms really want on Mother's DayWritten by Julie Vaughan
We see it every year about this time: TV commercials pushing the latest jewellery trends, grocery stores full of boxed chocolates and local flower shops advertising special deals for Mother’s Day.
Want to do something different this year? Not sure what your mom really wants on her special day?
What moms really want
For the best advice on this topic, we went straight to the source – real moms. Here, a group of moms share what the most meaningful gifts are to them:
As simple as it may sound, remember that the best gift you can give your mother (or wife) is the gift of your love – no matter how you demonstrate it on Mother’s Day. As one mother shared, "We adopted our first son just a few weeks before Mother’s Day, and he was the best Mother’s Day gift ever."
Ultimately, moms are pretty easy to please. Take the time to tell her you love her and give her a break from her "Mom duties." A little pampering never hurts, either.
