What moms really want for Mother's Day

This is the thing. Mother’s Day is quickly approaching and I think all moms want to feel appreciated for all the work they do. It is also true that it is hard for moms to say what they really want. So I created an anonymous survey for moms like you and me, and I asked them what they really wanted for Mother’s Day (besides World Peace).

Here are the responses I got, by category. Feel free to show it to your partner and/or your kids (or leave this post open on your computer in the family room. I’ve added some affiliate links for easy shopping!):

Pampering and Time Alone

  • “A massage.”
  • “The opportunity to sleep-in, undisturbed.”
  • “A day to myself! Sleeping-in…Netflix binge-watching, eating pizza and ice cream.”
  • “The house to myself for a day of lazing around!”
  • “A day of rest. Go to a fancy hotel for the day with a spa, pool, room service and TV… Alone!”
  • “A good novel and time to read it.”
  • “I’d love a meal planning/delivery service, or for the entire house to be cleaned while I sit and watch TV with popcorn.”
  • “A getaway–just a night, and not too far is fine.”
  • “A full day of pampering: mani, pedi, massage and margaritas!!”

Choose Own Gift

  • Gift Cards like: Nordstrom, TJMaxx, Michael’s or Amazon
  • Cash!

One of the moms was very specific: “1 BIG gift card to buy clothes and shoes.”

For the Techie Moms

  • “A day of outdoor adventures with my son.”
  • “A night alone with my husband.”
  • “A nice day out with the family on the beach.”
  • “A weekend with my family with no TV, no phone and no wi-fi.”
  • “Hand-made gifts from my children.”
  • “For the kids to clean out the closet, help keep things clean, save me time from doing it myself! Also, time together doing stuff, not so much material things.”
  • “Spend the whole day doing nothing but having fun with my kids.”
  • “I would love to receive lots of love and wellness for Mother’s Day.”
