I usually get my Mum some little dust collecter, she loves the silly things!! This year I will probably get her a CD. You can't go wrong with a nicely framed family piccy

Last year I bought my mom a digital camera b/c hers broke. It was only $99, but very nice quality pics and easy for her to use. This year....I dunno yet...I gave her a computer for Christmas so maybe that carries over to Mother's Day!

I wish I could give my mom a gift. She always loved flowers, or pictures of her children and grandchildren.

My mom and I are taking a trip for the weekend. Nothing too exciting, we mostly just wanted to go stay in a hotel somewhere.

I am making a photo presentation with all kinds of pics from my kiddies and I and placing it on an "SD" card. I'm also buying a Digital Picture Frame and placing the card inside , so that she can view them.

Hey Liesje...I was going to suggest one of those digital photo frames! My Mom is in Heaven, too Ms.Purrl! I'd suggest for all who CAN afford it...CAll Your Mother!! Does not cost a whole lot, but worth a Million $$!

My lil' sis and I (17 years apart) have taken a couple really good pics this year. So I was thinking of framing those and giving them to her. She likes putting stuff like that on her desk at work.

If I had more money, I'd love to do a professional portrait with my sister. Maybe I'll do that next year for my parent's 35th Anniversary.

For the last couple of years I've made a donation to Get on the Bus for my mom, it's an organization that takes kids to visit their moms and dads in prison.

These are all such wonderful ideas for your mothers and so thoughtful. There's some really lucky mothers of Interferencers out there! My son usually takes me out to eat and I cherish the special time we have. This year the grandbaby will be here and I cannot wait!!

Maybe our moms will get together and celebrate. That makes me smile.

And those of you who can: Hug your mom. Lots.

I usually write my mom a short story. I'm coming home from college for summer break on the 12th. Could that be a gift in itself? Either way, I'm going to be calling her on Mother's Day and telling her how great she is, how important she is, and how much I love her.

s to MsPurrl and forbonou2, my mums up there celebrating too.

Some really good ideas here but I really like Carlos idea of the SD card in a digital frame, might rob that for next mothers day here for my Grandma, she will love it.
