Do you acknowledge your MIL on Mother's Day?

just wondering. i always do, even though her & i butt heads frequently. i usually just make her a personalized calendar, or get her a mani/pedi certificate. this year i will probably just send her a card.. it's been a rough year & what was left of our relationship has pretty much been torn to pieces. but she is my mother in law after-all, & my children's grandma, so i feel like i should acknowledge her on the special day for us moms =) what about you?
