As a mom to 4, I can attest that these are the things to consider before running to Hallmark to buy a generic gift. According to a recent survey, the top five things moms want for Mother’s Day are:

Time to Relax and Recharge

Moms are always on the go, so a day to relax and recharge is a much-needed gift. This could mean taking a nap, getting a massage, or reading a book in a quiet place.

Help Around the House

Moms do a lot of work around the house, so a little help from their loved ones is always appreciated. This could mean doing the dishes, taking out the trash, or running errands.

This also means making or taking her out to dinner. For dinner, 2/3 of moms want wine and filet mignon at a fancy restaurant over pizza and milk with the kids.

A Day Out with Family or Friends

While sure, mom loves spending time with loved ones – give her a break. It’s the one day off a year for some mamas. Let her enjoy a day out, getting a pedicure, shopping or just walking around a park in silence.

If you really want to good in her good graces, the gift of an overnight stay alone at a hotel sounds like a real winner. Did you know that 1 out of 3 moms say they secretly want the day to themselves.

Simple “Thank You”

Sometimes, the best gifts are the simplest ones. A heartfelt “thank you” from your loved ones can mean the world to a mom. Pair it with one of our Mothers Day memes.

A Thoughtful Gift

Moms love receiving gifts that show their loved ones care about them. This could be anything from a piece of jewelry to a new book. Just make sure it’s not going to go in to storage and has thought put behind it.

A thoughtful gift could simply be a handmade card, most would prefer that over an expensive piece of jewelry. (Note, I said SOME.)

Only one third of moms want to pick their own Mother’s Day gift. Just make it a Mother’s Day gift she will love that you put thought into choosing.

Extra Sleep

Chances are mom is up and going early. Sleep, as we all know is a luxury. Print out a sleep meme, gift her with ear plugs, a white noise machine and the gift of no one bothering her while she sleeps in peace for 12 hours.
