Gift Ideas for Mothers Day-What Moms really want this year for Mother’s Day

You go through this EVERY year, searching for that perfect gift for mom that will sum up all the reasons why she is the BEST Mom ever!  Should you give  mom flowers or chocolates or soaps or jewelry or slippers or…………???  Now we’re sure all moms appreciate anything they receive or any acts of kindness they’re given. Why make it so complicated?

Have you ever considered the thought of actually asking  mom what she really wants for Mother’s Day on Sunday, May 10 this year?

Mothers are the rock that hold  foundations together. They sacrifice their life  to make the  lives of the one’s they hold close in their hearts better. From  taking us to school to cheering us at hockey to being our mentors and guides.  The one holiday, dedicated to moms  doesn’t  really feel like it’s enough to show our thanks for everything she has done for us.

You can shower mom with gifts and treat her to a fancy dinner but  sometimes moms just  want the basic gifts that money can’t buy.

They want  a break with the house cleaning and laundry,  being able to sleep in (past 6:30am) but what really matters most to a mom is to be able to spend quality time with her children. And let’s not pretend that ALONE time isn’t  just as important as well.

Now if not getting selfie pics with their kids posted on popular social media sites  or watching the same Minions video over and over again to the point they have memorized every line, our hope is that all mothers can  incorporate  some  of these requests in for a day dedicated to them and through the entire year.

Helping Hands-Building Trees of Hope

At Don Of All Trades, we believe it is important to give back to the community so we have created the Helping Hands-Building Trees of Hope Campaign that benefits Herizon House.

By supporting organizations like Herizon House, we acknowledge that in order to end the cycle of violence we must work in partnership with our community.
