My ideal mother's day gift would be some time without any commitments so I can enjoy some downtime with my family.

Kel said...

my ideal mummy's day gift is just always seeing her smile when we join her on this amazing day. But, a rusted chain necklace would help ;)

A day without housework or cooking, to have my sweet family do that all for me :)

Sara said...

Celebrating with my kids And my mom. And sleeping in....and getting my hair done.

jenny said...

Two years ago was my first Mother's Day after my daughter moved away to college. My husband and son took me to see the movie Wolverine on Mother's Day. My perfect Mother's Day would be doing anything but seeing Wolverine. ;)

the ideal mother's day for me would be to have my whole family go to church with me and then enjoy anything that i didn't have to cook!!

Wendy said...

I think it would be fun to go get mani/pedis with my daughter. She's a lot of fun to spend time with. And I'm guessing she'd pick green nail polish.

Julie said...

My ideal Mother's Day would be a day where the house is already clean, laundry is done and we could go out to lunch then come home and watch movies together.

Spending the day in the beautiful Flint Hills of Kansas with my 2kids, my mom and MIL. I love family get togethers! Letting the men in our lives grill, make homeade ice cream and clean up after us wouldn't be bad either!

I don't know what I would choose for myself for Mother's Day as an ideal gift, but I have hinted (rather blatantly) to my husband that i'd like one of your necklaces. :) Also gardening tools. Or flowers. I am pretty easy. Get me a spade and I am happy! :D

Maggie said...

My ideal mother's day is just lounging around with my boys and some flowers and a card would be nice too!

My ideal mother's day present to my mom would be to spend some time w/ her. Since my move away a few years ago, she craves her girl time. Unfortunately I will be stuck at work that weekend...

Amanda said...

Hmmmm... probably a weekend away with my hubby! Tho I was just showing my kids my falling apart slippers and told them that Mother's Day is coming up! :)

Mrs. McFadden said...

This year we are going to The Bahamas for Mother's Day. I think that tops all mother's day gifts! <3

A day of harmony, one filled with children's sweet voices speaking kindly, helping hands before being asked, from sunrise to sundown a house filled with a spirit of peace and love, no guilty feelings on my part about how I haven't measured up as a mother, just contented harmony for the day....winning your gift certificate is far more realistic even if odds are one in a million, but I can dream, right?

Stephanie said...

Since I'm not a mother, my ideal mother's day gift would be to be able to do something really special for my mom. If I could have the resourses to pay off her house, or eleviate a major expense that would be awesome. She's retired but still working & so I'd like to give her the ability to not worry.

ANYTHING would be great for Mother's Day. I hardly ever get anything- and I have 4 kids. Yes, I get the handmade cards from school and such, but the daddy should praise the mother of his kids on this day as well! shanna.u(at)gmail(dot)com

Nicole @Team Pipkin said...

my ideal mother's day would be to spend the day with my family WITHOUT the teenagers fighting with each other. The best gift would be them not cussing at each other. lol

stephiemarie21 said...

A day with no cooking, cleaning or laundry, just good food, family and friends.

Lori said...

My guys already gave me the perfect Mother's Day gift and they don't even know it. We spent last weekend on a road trip...we left home in storm warnings, drove through blinding rain (and lightning), got soaked, had a flat tire, and spent three days driving through the Kansas that I love. We left with little idea of where we were going, just knowing that we had to be home by Sunday. We drove back roads, visited historical markers (because), ate and ate and ate, and acted like idiots, together. They never batted an eye when I said, "Wait, I need a picture of this!" as we could see the fields burning against the evening sky. *sigh* It was fabulous!

Marin D said...

I want something sentimental this year. My husband used to be a softy and do something sentimental but that seemed to stop when we had kids. Boo! A necklace or frame or something would be great!

I'm not a mother. BUT the ideal gift for my mom would be having all of us kids (my 2 siblings are away at college-3 & 7 hours away-and i live 5 hours away)surprise her on mother's day (& possibly gift her a special something from the rusted chain!).

I have loved mother's day so much more the past couple of years since I've gotten married because my mother in-law is the MOST wonderful woman in the world - we love sending her something for her special day because she is always so sweet and loves everything! I think something shiny and personalized would beat last year's flowers, though, hands down ;)

it would have to be breakfast in bed and a nice boquet of flowers, thanks

PrincessMommyPants said...

I would like to hear something, anything from my twin step-son. Last year got blown off (forgotten) the year before we had just gotten back from our honeymoon. I just want to feel like I'm making some progress. So I guess I'd like a break.....

Heavenly.

DevotionMama said...

Right now I just want to say sleep because it's 12:30 and my 3 year old (my oldest of 3) is still awake and my to do before bed list is still a mile long. In my more sane, composed, and less sleep deprived state I'm sure I would say something sweet like their hugs and kisses or dandelions they pick for me from our back yard.

I'd love to be able to hug my mom and tell her how strong and brave she is, how she's taught me to be hardworking and a servant, to take her somewhere and spoil her. She deserves a special day after the year she's had.

Lisa, aka AP said...

Ah, just found your blog via T@iy@ at mycargoofjoy.blogspot.com and immediately lost myself clicking around and reading. I didn't follow you for the entry, so you know...I followed because I really enjoyed reading and will be back. :-) That said, my ideal Mother's Day will be the one I actually have planned with my 82 year old mom, her best friend of over 40 years, my elderly neighbor-who-is-like-family who recently lost her only (grown) child, my friend who has had both daughters (18 and 21) do many ignorant things and are now out of state and my own 19 year old son. The bunch of us are our own little family, minus 3 this Mother's Day, but I'm still reminded again how blessed I am to have them all even though most of them do stay on my very last nerve.

MaryBeth said...

My ideal Mother's Day would start at church surrounded by my hubby and kids, there will be the Blessing of Mother's, I'll have tears of joy and gratitude, then spend the day with my family with them treating me and my mom like Queen Bees. We've been doing this for forever and I don't want it to change EVER! BTW..."queens" love necklaces ;-)

Dj said...

My ideal gift would probably be a brand new sewing machine.

Hmm... so I just read the "rules." I was supposed to post my ideal Mother's Day gift. Oops. I'm actually still waiting to cash in my gift from last year. A night at a hotel... alone. I guess since I haven't used it yet I should get another one this year. Then I would get 2 nights!! Awesome.

mogrill said...

Mine would be breakfast in bed and a day with the kids at the beach.Thanks for the chance.

Fruitful Harvest said...

Hi must say as a momma of 6 beautiful children here age 16 and under, and 1 in heaven (lost to miscarriage Jan 20 2011). I get my favorite gift every year. A nice homecooked breakfast,a handfull of picked dandilions to start my day.

We go to Mass on Saturday nights...

Then hubby and a few of my younger kiddos plant pony packs of flowers in my patio containers.
(While I take pictures)

Then we have a nice steak BBQ dinner and eat sitting out back watching the kiddos play on the sports court and swing set!

Peace and Love,
Georgiann

Mrs. McFadden said...
