    Is mother's day a holiday celebrated where you live? If so and you have a good relationship with you mother do you have any plans for a Mother's Day present?

    I'm fresh out of ideas myself. I did overhear my mom saying something about her gardenia bushes dying and needing some new ones. I would not be knowledable enough to pick something like that out, but I guess I could get her a gift certificate to a gardening store-- just a whim.

    Do you guys have moms who need gifts?

            I always want to give her a gift, but she never wants anything.

            The best I can do is try to make her life easier in whatever way I can.

              I wanna make my mom some kind of really special gift this year too.

              I just never know what to make her for special days (like mothers day and her birthday) other than a card xD;

              But my mom mean's a lot to me. She's like my ultimate best friend a lot of the time :D Its weird theres things I don't want to talk about with her just yet, but.....maybe its just cuz I know she can be sensitive. And i care about her o.o; I've learned to be generous like that with my brother too. Maybe some stuff are best left off unsaid :)

              ....If I DO make her 'just a card' AGAIN this year, well. Maybe i'll try to make it a whole lot fancier than my past cards were :P Haha, i'm up for that..... :)

                That's sweet. You describe your relationship really nicely, I can feel the love. I have a similar relationship with my own mom. I bet your cards will be cool. My mom much to my surprise still keeps cards, doodles and notes I wrote with jokes fron years ago. The adage is true, It really is the thought that counts.

                The thing that drives me crazy about the month of May is that my mom's birthday is like a week after mother's day. Most of my family was born in May, then there's graduation presents too, the shopping never ends ;_;

                  That must be stressful and confusing as all hell. Your birthday isn't also in May, is it?

                    Nah, I'm a September baby.

                    This month just keeps better and better. Mom calls and tells me she needs money for some drainage issue, looks like my mother's day present will be an expensive rooter service. We've had awful rain storms for weeks straight that are killing the pipes in the neighborhood. Joy!

                    I admire your fortitude in dealing with it though. At least it makes shopping for her easy this year.

                    She's not one of the types who'll get you to pay for the pipes and then go "Now where's my gift?" right?
                    Hopefully not.

                    Yep, we have it here. =) I actually dk what to get mine....maybe an air fryer or something since we were talking about that at work yesterday lol, and it seems like a good gift. Usually I just go with the standard cards and chocolate since it seems like my family has little worldly desires.

                    mother's day is celebrated commonly where i live. i don't really have anything planned for my mom, but i know i should give her something... it's hard when your mother lives across the country from you.

                    I am going to do my shopping for Mother's Day this weekend. Mother's Day is so close to my mom's bday so I don't usually do too much for it other than a card, candy, and a balloon or two. This year though I might splurge a bit and get a nicer gift.

                    I have no psyducking idea what I'm going to do for mothers day. I might just make something she really likes for dinner and spend some family times. She's really hard to buy for.

                    fortunately mom has made it easy this year, as she said "I don't wan't any presents, just a steak dinner and a bottle of red wine"

                    I was never really much of a gift-giving person anyway

                    will partake in that wine tho

                    I usually don't have any trouble figuring out something to do / what to get my mom for Mothers Day, but this year I really am not sure what I am going to do/get...

                      Luckily easing her troubles delivers my sentiments for her, and she usually says it suffices.

                      Mother's Day is coming up! I ended up getting my mom a $100 Amazon gift card and need to sign her card tomorrow so it's ready. Curious to see her reaction since she always says she never wants anything and probably doesn't expect an Amazon gift card of all things. She has Amazon packages coming in every other day though, so I figured it'd be more useful than just flowers lol

                      my mom isn't a materialistic person really

                      all she wants is that we (as a family) are here for her etc, and that's more than what she could ever really want.

                      besides, she just got to see a family friend that she hasn't seen in years, and i think that in itself is more than enough for her.

                      I went shopping with my brother yesterday, got my mom a new phone since she really needs one and an orchid plant for his mom (she's bedridden and not very mobile, so it's hard to shop her for). I still want to get my mom something small from just me today though, since my brother paid for the phone.

                      For the celebration, we'll be having lunch with my brothers' mom, and dinner with mine. :)

                        It was nice reading all of the different mother's day accounts.

                        I had a very nice time with my mom. I went to the store early morning (needed groceries anyway) and bought my mom her favorite foods. She loves oatmeal cookies with raisins in them, and has eaten them since she was a child so, I got some of those from the bakery. Her favorite food is seafood, she likes shellfish in particular and goes crazy over jumbo shrimp. So I got that and cooked it for her for dinner. There was also so much delicious fresh fruit on sale, so I stocked the fridge with strawberries, plums, grapes, oranges, apples, bananas and offered a feast.


                        I decided to buy my mom a hummingbird feeder as a special present. She specifically had asked me not to buy her anything becsuse of money I had spent for home repairs, but I still wanted her to have something that felt like a mother's day present and it wasn't very expensive. Besides my mom does the same with me when I ask her not to get me anything. She still surprises me! I remember she had mentioned in the most general way once that she was thought a humming bird feeder in the garden would be nice, so I thought it would be fun if one appeared on mother's day. She acted really surprised and happy with it, and quickly hung it up.

                        A lot of bird feeders I think get overdesigned and tacky. but this was simple and elegant. I found the artist on Etsy and he is a glassblower. He used an old Italian technique called lampworking to make it.

                        Then I spent some time watching her favorite movies with her. It was a nice day.
