Before sitting down to share my knowledge I realized I have no idea what my own mother wants.
So, I called her and this is what she said: a big clock. That apparently is all she wants. Rather than spend $150 on a giant clock I thought I would write about what other people’s mother’s want (according to the internet) and decide that way.

A Few Other Ideas
- Class Membership: What does you mom want to learn?
- Chocolate, gift basket, flowers, candles
- Painting / a card or other art either bought or homemade
- Sew her pot holders, pillow or anything else you can think of
- Knit or crochet her something
- Cook her a meal or take her out somewhere
In the end the most important thing to remember is that this is your mother. She’s going to love you no matter what so don’t stress. I also know in my case my mother has done everything for me and she deserves something she’ll actually use.
