What moms really want on Mothers day

What moms really want on mother’s Day. Top wishes that moms secretly desire

Lots of hugs kisses and cuddles along with a handmade gift. Also I would love a quirky coffee mug

says Sulbha Bathwal, mother of two adorable twins.

And we completely agree. Every mother cherishes simple and imperfect cards or small gifts that her child has made for her.

When the children grow up and they get busy in their own world these are the things that make her happy whenever she sees them. So handmade card, photo frame or simple handprint are excellent gifts for a mother.

We loved the personalized mugs from Archies . You can check them out here

A photo frame or fridge magnet with our memories

says Swetha Kalyan.

I personally love looking through old photos and reminiscing when they were clicked. It could be printed photos or a photoframe or beautiful fridge magnet.

You can get Photo frames from Amazon here

A day of Spa and salon services. It is a luxury I think after we become moms

says Rashmi Jain Agarwal

Nothing makes you feel better than being pampered and feeling cared for 🙂

Well a good relaxing spa can help every women feel pampered and what could be a better gift than a gift coupon or booking at a good Spa. Show how much she is appreciated and let her take a day off ..

If the kids are old enough then they can set up a home spa with homemade scrub and candles.

Would love to have a glass of lemonade made by my Kiddo just for me.. And a handmade bookmark

and Spend my whole day with my Kiddo with lots of hugs and lovely smiles.  says Shweta Garg

Simple pleasures of life :-). Time with our kiddo and handmade gifts and lemonade. Sounds awesome. Its not big gifts but simple things done with loads of feelings that wins our heart

A beautiful handwritten note and beautiful picture of both of us together

says Atti Goyal Bagaria

There is something about a hand written note that toucher our heart and makes us feel loved.

So go ahead instead of getting a greeting card from market. Take out time to jot down your feelings in handwritten note and make your mom feel special. For younger kids fathers can help kids in writing this note.

Beautiful handmade card (made with someone else’s help) and anything that her father brings with her

says Sunaina Saxena on what she wants as mother’s day gift.

A good massage. Rest and Dinner made by hubby 

says Sylvia David on being asked- ‘what mom’s want on mother’s day’

Rest and Sleep is something a mother craves for.

A day free from all the daily routine activities that a mother does would be lovely. If she is freed from all these chores for a day then that will be the best mother’s day gift for her and she gets extra time to spend with her kids.

And Yes, after you become a mother a complete 8hrs sleep without having to wake up to crying baby or demanding toddler or when alarm rings  is something every mom wishes for.

So a good night’s sleep will make any mom’s day 🙂

I want to spend my whole day with my son. 24 hours of us just doing something together, playing together, singing rhymes, telling life stories

says Akila Sai Ram

A child’s good health,  her children’s love and happiness. 

Also would love something unique with wonderful memories like a DIY string art with pictures,  pallet frame or a shadow box says Gayatri Shah

A Clean house

says Shilpa Bankapur.

Everyone loves to have a clean and organised home but with the kids in the house it’s always a mess.

So on this special day coming home to a clean and organised home even if it is for some time is what every mom wants.

So if you are wondering as a husband what does my wife wants on Mother’s day. Note above wish 🙂

That doesn’t mean she wants you to hire a professional to do the job, instead buying her probably easy cleaning supplies she needs or helping her also means a lot for her.

A relaxing day to spend with family on beach, play and lots of fun time with little one

says Anshu Agarwal.

So going out on a short vacation could be one of the things you can do as a family on mother’s day.

A promise that our relation will be same even after my daughter grows up. 

says Nikita Maru. As a mother, I want this moments to be captured though its already there in my heart. The way she laughs, the moment she cries for silly things, hugs and kisses she keeps on doing!! For me mothers day gift will be a promise that our relation will be same even after she grows up or gets married

Some Time for workout

This was another wish multiple moms had.

After the baby workout takes backseat for mothers but workout actually is a good to boost your confidence and fight post-partum depression.

It is very difficult for a mother to find time for workout with the baby in hand.

So this Mother’s day offer to look after the child once in a week so that she can join any fitness club according to her convenience such as Yoga, Zumba, aerobics, bodyweight training or even a simple meditation classes.

A good Subscription or good Books and time to read them

Few moms said that they would enjoy a good subscription

Any magazine of her choice or DIY activity box  or self-care kits are good to amaze her.

Also, you can get her books she wants to read and help her find time when she can read them.

It could be books on parenting, or self care or just being happy, or decluttering or eating healthy. But give her what she enjoys reading and finds useful

Help in getting my To do list done

Well who would say no to as helping hand. You can help her in completing the task for her or just being there for .her, while she takes care of her to do list.

All I would like to say in the end. Motherhood is not easy. So take out time and make a mom feel special. Spend time together, talk to her, give a hug and help her take care of herself. Give her a gift she cherishes and that brings a smile to her face.

  1. Great compilation of real mom’s real wishes.

  2. That’s a neat list Neha and not something that will break the bank shoukd you decide to gift one. I always feel that more than the gift it’s the thought behind it that matters. So it might be a 300 rupee printed mug but the fact that you thought it woukd be useful to your mother is what counts.

    • Thanks a lot Anshu 🙂 Absolutely and so very well said .. For any gift on any occasion its the thought that matters rather than monetary value. I am so glad you liked this list of gifts moms want ..
