This Mother's Day will be a bittersweet one for me. Although I'm flying off to Hong Kong, which is very exciting, it's the first Mother's Day since my mom passed. I've always loved Mother's Day, from making my mom sweet homemade cards in grade school to taking her out to Sunday brunch. Of course the best gift to give any mother is time -- that's really what they want. And in addition to flowers or candy, I found that giving an experience always elicited a warm smile. After all, it meant we'd be spending even more time together, as the gift came with me as organizer and driver. Here are five gift ideas to give your Mom on Mother's Day. If you can't spend time with her, give her a call or write her a letter. Tell her that you love her in your own special way.
