What mom really wants for Mother's Day

Although they may say they don't want anything, moms deserve something on Mother's Day whether its tangible like flowers or just a simple 'Thanks, Mom.'

Dads, here are 15 ideas for you and the kids for this Mother's Day:

  • Arrange a personal chef consultation - meal planner (or dad makes three or four freezer meals - and cleans up after!)
  • Family photo album - with special messages inside (actual printed photos).
  • Plan a workout consultation with a fitness trainer.
  • Create a family video montage.
  • Arrange a professional organizer consultation.
  • An obvious but good one: Buy her favorite flowers.
  • Hire a one-time maid service or send mom to the spa and spend that time cleaning.
  • Take her to the jewelry story and let her design a mother's ring with the birthstones of each child.
  • Sign her up for a wine-of-the-month club.
  • Send mom to the spa.
  • Gather up all the recipes from her mom and grandma and put them in a binder.
  • Take the kids on an adventure and let her enjoy quiet house for a morning or afternoon.
  • Let mom take a nap without interruption.
  • Create a thank you card.
  • Have the kids create a show or a play and perform it for her. Moms love to hear their children sing.
