Are you a card & gift-giving person to your mom on Mother's Day?

Just a card?

A phone call?

Nothing?

I usually give her something. If I can't think if a present to give her, then I get her a plant or flowers. We also usually see her for dinner or lunch at one if my sister's houses.

I had a magnet made with Bella's pic on it. And we will call her.

If we were there..I would take her to lunch and maybe a massage.

I usually get her something small, about $20 or less. I think I got her a small potted tree for her patio last year.

Nothing is ever good enough for my Mom.
I'm trying not to spend a ton of $ so she's getting a jar of home made granola & maybe some kind of summer accessory. And a card. A store boughten one. Cards the kids make aren't good enough

It will all get mailed & I will call her but not see her.

I won't be seeing my mom on mother's day because she doesn't live near me but I'll see her the weekend before so I need to get her a gift & card to give her that weekend. Usually I send her at least a card, usually a gift with it.

I got my Mom a mother/daughter bracelet. And I will probably get her another little something. Not sure yet.

i will get her something....but no idea what! we always get her something around $50-100...but probably will stick more around $50 this year...if not less. Every year it seems to get a little bit smaller. It always helped that DH's mom is a nut case and we didnt buy her anything....so my mom got the whole budget.

We usually either take her out to lunch or cook lunch for her. Plus a card. She's hard to buy gifts for, but if I can come up with something, I'll get it...but it's tough. For MIL we usually fail...DH is seriously the worst at that stuff, and by the time we think about it, it's too late to mail something. And she's the type to get offended and give guilt trips.
