What’s the perfect Mothers day gift?
If you ask any mom they will tell you that they have everything we need. This may be true but we don’t have everything we want. I simple bouquet of flowers, a thoughtful card, a prepared meal, something to be pampered with. All of these are great things to receive and are all appreciated. Share with your kids your list, better to receive something you appreciate, want or will use then something that will be shelved.
Why gifts on Mothers Day?
Unfortunately my mother passed a few years ago. I have come across the statement ” If you could spend one hour with someone, who would that be” I have thought about this alot in the past year and would give anything to have that hour with my mom. So many things that I would say and express, or explain. We can never get this time back, however, for many who still have a mother to spend the day with or give an appreciated gift this is priceless. Do not take this time for granted.

What to get the woman who has everything for Mother’s Day?
We all ask this question. I know as a mom I am always happy to receive a heartfelt gift. That my kids or husband would take the time to consider what I would like. A gift does not have to be the most expensive to be the most cherished.
A good idea is to plan an experience. One of my last gifts to my mother was a day that I took her and my kids to see the Cherry blossoms at the Brooklyn Botanical gardens. I will always have the memory of that day, where we all spent time together.
