survey last year said what they really wanted was a day off while less than 2% said they wanted jewelry or a store bought gift. The second most desired gift was simply a day spent with your family (21%). My own mother would probably most appreciate a phone call or heartfelt card (or, best of all - a visit), but most of the moms I know with young children really want a day to themselves to recharge and reconnect with their pre-mom self. Remember, the best way to get what you want is to ask for it.
