As most know, this Sunday is Mother's Day. (At least here in the US). Now I haven't gotten a chance to get my mom anything yet. As I'm waiting for the April money from here to go with what I have already. Plus I don't really know what to get her, as she's just like me.. and doesn't care for flowers or jewelry. No idea what my brother is thinking of doing either. As he hasn't said anything to me. Usually by now we have talked about it. But I do plan on all of us going back to Applebees sometime next week for a nice dinner. (Due to them working on Sunday). Like we have been for the last few years. Hmm.. any ideas on what to do/get?

You know your mother best. My hubs always gives me jewelry, flowers, a dinner, and chocolate. My son's usually give flowers, a long weekend away, a spa treatment, etc.

@Courtlynn Then you have to think up something she would like or need.

I also dont really have the income to get anything for mothers day. I have already got a couple cards for her one from me and one from the dog LOL. Probably wont do to much but just a card is sometimes good enough as my mom wont be here this year and will be away. I will get her flowers when she gets back. If i was you i would get a card and possibly a gift card if you could to somewhere that she likes to eat or just go shopping.

@Courtlynn Thanks! Applebees dinner sounds lovely. I love doing the 2 for $20 but $25 (since my fiance always gets steak) dinner sounds nice.

I suggest You cook her a nice dinner and tell her you love her. Most mothers don't care. It's the thought that counts.

I got my mom a t-shirt that she has been really wanting. clothing is nice, candy is always a win, and sometimes just a nice long conversation can be enough as well.

I haven't gotten anything for my mom yet either. And like you am blanking on ideas. My mom is difficult to shop for, even though she claims she isn't.

I am waiting on money too, then shipping is so expensive. I will probably have to go to the store. I don't know why they should be paid 7 bucks, just to deliver something. I mean that's insanity to me, when it's 3 dollars that's already too much.

My Mom's gift came in the mail just the other day. I haven't had the chance to wrap it yet. It wasn't very "sentimental", but I got Mom a spoon rest for the kitchen, as we've been without one for ages. Mom and I have so much stuff that these days we mostly get each other things we need/can use.

I hope you enjoy Mother's day with your family. =) My mom likes angels so I got her an angel light. It's easy when there's something you know they like.

Sadly I don't usually buy my mom anything....maybe a card. Sometimes my husband will buy her a plant or flowers.
