Every year when Mother's Day rolls around, you ask your mom what she wants as a gift. And every year, her response is "Nothing! I don't need anything." But you know better than to take her at her word. Moms always deserve to be celebrated, even if they protest.

If your mother claims she doesn't want any mother's day gifts this year, don't listen. Instead, surprise her with one of these thoughtful ideas that any mom will appreciate, even if she insists she wants "nothing."

  1. A Day Off From Chores and Responsibilities One of the best mother's day gifts is giving the gift of time and relief from domestic duties. For one day, don't let your mom cook, clean, run errands, or tend to any tasks around the house. Take over all her typical responsibilities so she can relax and recharge.
  2. Breakfast or Brunch in Bed Start her day off right by serving her a delicious breakfast or brunch from the comfort of her bed. Go all out with her favorite dishes, fresh flowers, and mimosas. Bonus points if you handle the after-meal mess too!
  3. Dinner Delivered While she's enjoying her day off, remove the task of meal planning and cooking dinner by ordering her favorite takeout or making reservations at the restaurant she loves.
  4. A Night Out: Movie, Theater, or Concert Treat your mom to a night of entertainment by getting tickets for just the two of you to see a new movie, play, musical, comedy show, or concert she'd enjoy.
  5. Spa Day or Pampering Services Book a massage, facial, mani/pedi, or other pampering service to help your mom relax and feel refreshed. Or, create an at-home spa experience with accessories like plush robes, slippers, face masks, and luxury beauty products.
  6. Flowers and a Handwritten Note You can never go wrong with a beautiful bouquet for mother's day. But take it one step further by Including a heartfelt handwritten letter expressing your gratitude and appreciation for everything she does.
  7. A Celebration Lunch or Dinner Whether it's a sit-down restaurant meal or a backyard bbq, gather the family together to honor your mom with a celebratory lunch or dinner. Let her sit back and enjoy the company while others handle the details.

The best mother's day gifts don't have to be material things. Often, it's the gift of your time, effort, and recognition that means the most to moms. So even if she insists she wants "nothing" this year, choose something from this guide to show her how much you care.
