  • Why not? Is your DIL a mommy? I would. Nothing to big of course but a little something is always appreciated :)

  • My mom always does. It's very much appreciated.

    I plan on doing the same after my sons marry and have children.

  • I do. My daughter (who isn't a mom yet) and I always go in together to buy a little something for my oldest. Her kids father is not in the picture right now, so we figure we should make up for it.... LOL!

  • I wouldn't - because neither is YOUR mother. I would find that inappropriate. I also feel that giving gifts on every imaginable day possible is taking the value out of those special days by making them overly commercial. Would you give them a valentine's day gift?

  • But, I wanted to add, I don't think you should feel it's a must that you do so.

  • I would give them a Valentines Day Card.
    I give my friends Mom a Card and flowers for Mother's Day as well as my mother, grandmother & any friends that is a mom. May just be a single rose with a card.

  • My parents have always gotten me, my sis and my SIL's presents on mother's day since we became mothers. One year it was a figurine of a mother holding a baby, one year it was a book on mothering, most years it's flowers - either hanging baskets or potted plants (something we can keep, not cut flowers that will be gone in a few days). I think it's really nice of them.

  • If you want to you should. None of the hallmark holidays are required.
