Should your husband get you a gift for Mother's Day?

I've heard several different answers to this question. A lot of women expect their SO to get them a gift, but my in-laws are like, why? You are not his mother. So do you get a gift or expect one from your SO, BF, or DH?

  • I'm not his mommy so I don't expect anything. He usually does get me something but I wouldn't boo hoo or be mad if he didn't.

  • He ususally get me flowers, and helps my baby get me something. This year ill be super pregnant if not popping.. so he will still only have 1 baby to take care of the gift for... hes sweet though.
    I dont EXPECT anything on mothers day. Not even from my little girl. Im sure i will get something.. but to EXPECT something is a different story.

  • It seems like a very divided issue. My family is like what? Why wouldn't he get you something?? and his family is like, why would he? You are not his mom! So I wanted to see what everybody else does. Nobody ever talks about this.

  • Saying no he is not your mother to me is a laugh, a slap in the face.
    It is Mothers Day ...all people involved should be grateful. It is another important day to say..
    Honey I love you and you are a great mother, I appreciate all that you are and all that you do for our family..
    My SO gets me gifts from our children and I will get alittle something from him.

  • Absolutly! My Dh Takes our child out and they shop for me, he does always get me something special from him in thanks to being a good mom to his child. My Own father calls and wishes me a Happy Mothers Day! My Mom Isnt here any more. You do deserve to be reconized AS A MOTHER IT IS WHAT The day is for " MOTHERS"

  • Yes, especially if the children are to young to know how to do it on their own. The father should assist the kids with getting or MAKING something and it would be from ALL of them.

    No you are not the dh mother, but you do mother his children, and that should be a worthy thing to honor and thank you for.
