Mothers Day

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
Mothers Day will be here before I know it - and I want to do something really special for my mom this year - but I really don't have a clue as to what to do!

What will you be doing for your mom on Mothers Day?

I need some ideas!

My Mom loves to garden, so I usually buy here a new rosebush or two, or a birdbath or something like that. I try to buy mothers day gifts that are girly, plenty of times for the non-girly gifts

My mom loves to shop, so I usually buy her a gift card for one of her favorite stores. Then we go on a mom/daughter shopping trip and out to lunch afterward.

maybe I'll get my Mom a sweatshirt that says "World's Greatest Grandma" or something like that since it'll be her first time being one.

Thats a good idea, she really likes those big overflowing hanging plants, maybe I get her one of those... I think they are so pretty!

I just want to do something super special this year.... I'm super stumped, I know you guys will all have awesome ideas that will help me out!

I get my mother a few big hanging plants every year.

I used to get my mom a hanging plant until she went in the nursing home. Now seeing as she cannot do it and she always had put the flowers on my dad's grave I took that over and put a nice planter on every year. It makes her feel so much better knowing that it is taken care of. Oh, and of course I visit her on that special day for sure and a card as usual!

Well let's see since Jason signed us up to work the car show on mothers day I can't do much. Although I never really see my mom, but maybe we'll get Jays mom flowers and a nice card.

I have no idea what to get my mom. SHe is a plantaholic so maybe a nice plany is a good idea. I gave her really pretty plants when she was sick last year but she has killed them and thrown them away!

I usually go into the nursery in town & tell them that I need something for my mom. They know our entire family. They usually know what mom wants better, too. lol I think we actually have a gift vertificate for a few plum tree at that nursery...maybe I'll get her that!

I an not really that insensitive. Last year, I got her a gift from all of us kids as two of the four of us couldn't get home. I got a bouquet of differnt colored roses, one of her favorite flowers mixed in, a set of stepping stones for her garden...and of course, a kitty statue for her garden!

Hey Mack! Maybe you could get her a kitty! lol

My family is a dog family - they have a chocolate lab and a little mutt - no room for kitties there!

Plus, all my family is allergic to cats!

Then maybe you'll have to get them a dog!

I just thought of another thing. I could make a donation to the humane society in mom's name & get her a little card saying this is what I did. She would love that.

What about a massage/facial somewhere? What would be even better is if you could afford to do it for you and her together. Me and my sis got my mom a spa day like that last year for Mothers Day and she absolutely loved it. Good luck finding something good!

My sisters and I normally join together to get her something nice, like a designer purse or a flower arangement.

I dont know about this year, though. You can only give someone flowers so many years. I'll have to think so more.

Its been mothers day here already and in the Arab world. I sent some flowers to Dubai for my Grandma and my Mom. During the English mothers day I sent flowers to my future MIL and my fiance grandmas.

I've got one of those practical moms who complains about anything that she gets...'why waste your money on these flowers, they're just gonna die' would be a typical 'thank you' from mom! but once in awhile I really out do myself and get her to smile. This year I'm sure to be her favourite!lol She had this lamp that has a wooden base and the lamp post is off to one side with a cylindrical glass dome on the base with a flower and real butterfly arrangement under it. Not to long ago she dropped it and the displayed items broke but miraculously the glass cover did not. So I told her I would fix it for her with these horrific cheesy fake butterflies I got at the dollar store...She seemed game and gave me the lamp...but what I'm really going to do is have the lamp professionally done with real butterflies and dried plants. I can't wait to see her reaction this year!

One thing that is nice to do for mothers day is to just pamper mom a little extra, help her with her chores and cook a nice dinner for her and the family, let her kick her feet up and relax on this special day.

I'll probably get mine a gift cetificate for a salon to have her nails done, or else a body wrap, she likes those. Hmmm. She also has always wanted to go to a wine and cheese tasting, maybe I'll look into that too.....

Plants always work. I know that my mom loves them. I am going to let her choose what she wants to do and tell her the whole day is hers.

My sister and I bought mom a ticket to fly out to Tucson and see her Uncle. It was in March, but it was "early". I'll probably send her a card though, on the actual day.
