What do you give to the person that stands in line at 4:00 am to buy that perfect gift for you?

What will bring a smile to the one that helps with homework, cooks dinner, and catches up with friends on the phone, all at the same?

What do you give to someone that carried a baby for 9 months and went through excrutiating labor? Well... it is not a new toaster.

Here are some ideas for the mom on your list.

  1. A letter expressing your gratitude, appreciation, and love for her
  2. A relaxing and long massage
  3. Homemade art work
  4. A manicure
  5. A plant she can enjoy all year long
  6. A pedicure
  7. A great haircut
  8. A chauffeur to drive mom and her friends for a "girls night out"
  9. Clean the house
  10. Fill up her gas tank
  11. car wash
  12. A calendar with memorable photos
  13. Tickets to the opera, show, or sporting event
  14. Make a payment on her credit card
  15. Make a photo album filled with great memories
