I have a single mom whom I love so much! This Christmas, I really want to give her something really unforgetable. I need help especially to mothers out there. I am a man.

I wanted to do those suggestions above. But what I was able to do was the simplest one. I gave her money for her to buy stuffs for her alone. I actually accompanied her doing the shopping. We had a real bonding! Thank you guys for your time to suggest, really, THANKS! We really enjoyed the whole day together!

What a great idea! I am sure that spending the day with you was the best part of your gift to her!

I raised my 3 as a single mom. While I love any and every gift I receive from them, I think last Christmas was my favorite. As they were growing up money was tight and shopping "just for me" is something that happened VERY RARELY. I learned to make do with what I had so I could buy for the kids. After years of that I still have that mentality, even though my kids are grown now. Lasy year the 3 of them got together and bought me a gift card for my favorite store (Kohls in my case), and gave it me along with a "contract" I had to sign agreeing to use it to purchase only items for myself! I loved that!

thanks for that! sometimes I when I give her money, she buys stuffs for me and her two grandson (not mine,still single). The contract signing is cool! Again, thanks!

That is usually what I do. I go shopping and come back with something for everyone but me! My kids knew I would just go buy things for them or my grandaughter, so they beat me at my own game ... LOL

I also have a single mother that I really, really love! Be sure to always tell her that you love her and let her feel that. Why not try a ring as a gift since you've just mentioned that she's a single mom!
