Mother’s Day is just around the corner and if you’re anything like my family, you are already trying to figure out what it is that Mom wants this year. Most of what I said I wanted for Mother’s Day in 2018 still remains true.

I polled my Instagram followers to see what it is they really want this year. The answers were so good, I had to share (with their permission, of course).

  1. A trip somewhere. –@caitlynbattle
  2. I just want to sleep in as late as I want and wake up to a buffet breakfast.
  3. Sleep.
  4. A spa day and my house cleaned. –@lacey.koko
  5. Deep clean service for the whole house. -anonymous
  6. Hugs & more hugs from my littles. – @tinygreenmom
  7. A day without diaper changes, cooking, or cleaning. –@lilith_blood_rose
  8. A day of pampering and sleep ALONE. –@sarahnhenryy
  9. Time! –@bobopenny68
  10. The day off from decision-making. –@love.leahjoy

And my favorite of all… Spend the night before in a hotel all by myself so I can sleep in peace and as long as I want. Then wake up to room service breakfast then a massage and pedicure. Then come home to happy kids who made me cards and got me flowers. Then go on a hike or walk if it’s nice out, maybe a bike ride, and end it at our favorite brewery. – @danaemboyle

All of the answers above sound amazing! But if you’re looking for a gift instead (or to go with one of the above), check out my ultimate Mother’s Day Gift Guide.

Hello There!

I'm so honored that you've found us! I'm Heather, a Mom of 3 who blogs about parenting, food, occasional travel and how I overcame my daily struggle with anxiety. I miss sleeping and rely on coffee and laughter to get me through the day. I hope you enjoy and visit often!

  1. Sadly my mother passed away. But these are great ideas. I can also give them to my friends and family members who are mothers. Thanks for sharing.

  2. I would absolutely love each and every one of these gifts as they are all great gift ideas. I am still thinking about what to get my mom…. but me personally I want that egg chair!

  3. So many great ideas! I think my wife would love the coffee maker. We can have coffee anytime we want to while we are working from home.

  4. Great selection on items to gift to your mom. I personally like Dluxe by Dearfoams Best Mom slippers! I think it’s so cute! My mom would love it!

  5. I think the slippers would be a good idea. It’s a nice, comfy gift a mom wouldn’t think to get herself but would use a lot if she got them.

  6. Quite telling that so many of your Insta followers just want a day off for Mother’s Day. I think that’s what I’d want, too. But I’m also enchanted by the “Raising Kind Humans” shirt. Such a wonderful idea and message.

  7. Wow, I can’t even believe Mother’s Day is so close by. This year is surely flying by faster than I thought. I am loving that mug. I need something to keep my coffee warmer longer. I take forever to drink it in the morning.

  8. I always liked experience gifts more than products. These are very nice alternatives, thank you 🙂

  9. Nice ideas! Spa day and a deep clean of my mom house is the best gift that I can give for her this mother’s day.

  10. I would love that cute pink tie dye lounge wear set, those slippers and snuggling up in that egg chair!

  11. It’s a really nice topic, I couldn’t ask for more other than a sleep and a trip somewhere relaxing.

  12. I have so many friends that are new moms! I just realized that this will be the first mother’s day for them! Thanks for the great ideas — they are fit for young mamas!

  13. This is a wonderful guide. I see some products that even I would love to have. The egg hanging chair is something I have always wanted.

  14. I would go for a whole day of nothing having to do anything. The house will be magically clean, I won’t have to cook or do laundry, I don’t have to run errands or babysit. But I know it will be close to impossible to have these wishes, so I would settle for a new Roomba. 🙂

  15. Some amazing list of gifts here perfect for Mother’s Day, I do love the Ember Temperature Control Mug as I love a hot drink

  16. I have one of those pajama sets and they are AMAZING. So soft. Target has the BEST stuff. You have some awesome picks.

  17. We have a roomba with our dogs, and it’s such a lifesaver!! Any mother would be really lucky to get this!

  18. There are so many awesome ideas here. I hate to say it, but I haven’t even started shopping yet. I’m glad I found this!

  19. I am a very low maintainace girl and have already told my husband I do not want anything for Mother’s Day. Those pajamas seem like they are so comfortable and cozy so that is my choice from this list.
