Calling all Mothers, daughters and sons!

    With mothers day not far away, I was wondering?

    For moms- what do you like to get on this special holiday?
    For sons and daughters- What do you give on this special holiday?

    As for me, a personal chef for the day would do just nicely! For my mom, I get her pajamas and a plant because that's what she wears all day long while watering her plants LOL!

    All these days are worthless and i wonder how could one day add importance to these relationships.For me this coming day does not make any sense.As far as the gifts are concerned they could be given and taken all over the year.If i specify one day,whatabout the other days.Its not about being against mothers day rather a tribute to all moms to be endeared and honoured all time.

    yes, you make a good point, however, most families are so busy and sometimes forget the importance and sacrifices moms make and although most of us show our appreciation all year long, it's nice to make a day of it and really show someone how much you care.  If we would forget all holidays and special days, chances are we would lose touch with friends and family over time. When you pay attention, you show that you are interested. Validation doesn't come easy for many, at least this gives some the chance to express something that would otherwise be difficult.

    i would be happy if my husband and my two boys cleaned up the house a bit and cooked me something...anything just make an effort.
    no card thanks unless they make it themselves, flowers are good but not expensive ones just some lillies from the supermarket.
    i like mothers day better than my birthday....because it is reward for effort.

      My family always pampers me on Mother's Day, cooks, cleans and the kids don't argue.  What a great day!  My Mom always gets a crocheted throw that I make for her though.  She loves that!

        I agree with the home-made card, I also love home made gifts from my family.  I think that taking the time to make a gift shows much more appreciation for a person than a store bought one.

    I think a lot of us are on the same page. Not cook, not clean and relax. Think all the husbands are? LOL!
