The gifts mom really wants? Time and rest.
A mother’s work is never done, no matter how old her children are! That means giving mom a break now and then – especially on Mother’s Day – is both essential and sure to be appreciated.
If you’re wondering what to give the moms in your life this year, Parents magazine found out exactly what kind of gifts mom really wants – and they may not be what you think.

Mother’s Day Gift Ideas – to Give Mom What She Really Wants
Turns out, moms just want time to themselves, and a break from their usual parenting routine. Those are easy wishes to fulfill! Try these easy gift ideas to make Mother’s Day a real day of rest, relaxation, and appreciation for everything she does.
Clear mom’s calendar, turn off her alarm clock, and let her sleep in as long as she wants. Keep the kids quietly occupied elsewhere so as not to interrupt her slumber.
Pairs well with: New sheets and pillow cases, blackout curtains, a soft blanket, or a lavender-scented sleep mask.
An Unscheduled Day – or Two
Take over mom’s responsibilities for a day or a weekend, and let her make her own fun! A staycation or short getaway by herself, with a friend, or with her own mom can give her the time she needs to recharge. Make sure she doesn’t come back to a longer to-do list by cleaning up the house, finishing the laundry, and giving the dog a bath while she’s gone.
Pairs well with: An open room service tab or gift card to her favorite restaurant.
A Salon Treatment
When mom’s busy taking care of everyone else, that means she’s sacrificing time to take care of herself. Give her that time back with a gift card and pre-scheduled appointment to her favorite salon. Whether she’s craving a haircut, massage, manicure, or facial, she’ll appreciate the hours she gets to focus on herself.
Pairs well with: Jewelry and a date night to show off her new look.
