What Are You Getting Your Mom For Mother's Day?

What Are You Getting Your Mom For Mother's Day?

Since Mother’s Day is all about showing our moms how much they mean to us, giving a thoughtful gift is really important. Unfortunately, even if we know all the things our mothers love most, coming up with something original and meaningful can be incredibly tricky. I always find that finding something you can do together — like concert tickets, spa treatments, or a home-cooked meal — is a great gift for this particular occasion. So what are you getting your mom this year? Please share for those of us still scrambling for a great idea!

I'm currently studying jewelry, so I made her a ring! And then I engraved it with a special message. I just hope I made it so that it fits her!!!

I am going with the Sephora Breakfast in Bed set and also making her an online family tree on I got the idea from this lady at my work, and it looks really cute!

I'm thinking about making her tiramisu. She loves it, but I don't usually make it, because as far as desserts go, it's incredibly time consuming and complicated to make.

A new phone! Hers is embarassingly outdated.

I'm giving her a gift certificate to go camping with my dad. They love being outdoors and doing the whole camping thing. She'll love it. I'm also going to buy her some sort of plant that she can plant in her flower garden. I like the idea someone gave about making a CD with all her favorite songs on it. That would be sweet! :-)

A mix cd with songs for summertime; and I'll probably bake some of the chocolate chip cookies she likes along w/ cooking dinner with her.

I got her a ceramic hair straightener - it's taken her a while to get used to me using mine, but now she is ready :)

Money is very very tight for me right now, and my mom knows it, and probably doesn't expect anything but a card. But I managed to pick up some overtime, so I'm going to get her a nice gift set from Sephora. I haven't decided which one yet. She loves makeup, and always asks me for tips, so I think she'll really enjoy it.

I made my mom a large felted tote, and my sister and I filled it with travel related goodies she'll need for her trip in July.

I'll probably just text message my mom on the day. We don't really do much in our family on days like that--plus we live in different states.

We're doing brunch with the family to celebrate Mother's day not only with my mom, but her mom as well. Because we're going to be spending the day with my grandmother and family my sister and I will be taking her to the spa the following weekend (but she'll find out about it Sunday).

My sisters and I are sending some exotic flower arrangements to my mom's work so she can show off to her co-workers and I am taking her to dinner on Sunday. That's pretty much it.

I took my mom to Victoria secret (she never been) and had her measured last week and we picked her up some much needed undergarments. Love the lady but she was wearing the wrong bra, I had to trick her to go in the store with me. I am also, taking her for dinner on Saturday evening and spending the day with her and the fam on Sunday.

her birthday wasn't too long ago, and we bought her presents and a gift cert. to a spa, but her favorite thing was a gift card to her favorite crafty home store, so we're going to all pitch in and give her a larger gift card this time. plus make her dinner and maybe clean the house ;)

We made my mom and my mother-in-law a batch of homemade pasta and a quart of sauce to go with it. And flowers, of course.

I live in Kentucky for school, so I'm driving up to Chicago (eight hours! EEP!) to surprise my mom. She doesn't know I'm coming, and my sister and I are excited to surprise her and take her out to dinner : )

A card. We don't do gifts in my family, which is nice because I don't have to try to think of something to get everyone, and you don't end up with stuff you don't want. One can only have so many picture frames and scented candles...

Bisque, that exploding box of pictures sounds AWESOME!
