We asked 35 moms what they really wanted for Mother's Day and we found a recurring theme.

We asked 35 moms what they really wanted for Mother's Day and we found a recurring theme: what moms really want is some much-needed rest, a glass of wine, a deep cleaning of their home, uninterrupted alone time, and the opportunity to spend time with friends. So instead of spending money on overpriced flowers and cards, why not give your mom the gift of a day off? Jewelry also helps, a new car, and maybe even a trip to the Maldives. Either way, by fulfilling her simple wishes, you can make her happy and show her how much you appreciate all she does for you throughout the year.
