What are you getting them for Mothers Day?

I was thinking flowers and a spa day...but it sounds so cliche!

I'm thinking of sneaking over and planting some beautiful flowers and plants at her house while my SO takes her to lunch...but I'm afraid her husband will catch me and spoil the surprise...:(

We got her a glass humming bird wine stopper and expensive red wine. The kids made her picture frames with pictures they have drawn.

She has everything she could want, so I hope she likes it.

I do know she LOVES humming birds and red wine tho!


Edit: She would KILL me if I touched her garden, so that's not an option for us lol.

I can't wait for the day that she can actually come enjoy a glass of wine with me:)

We really wanted to take her and SO's little sisters on a vacation with us for Mothers Day...just down to Gatlinburg for a weekend...but we are not sure if we will be able to:(

Dh is taking the day off for both his mom and me. my mom lives 2 hrs away so ill call her.

we're going to go to MIL's and I'm going to plant some moon flowers for her. She has a ugly fence the neighbor put up and it's leaning and just horrible. So I planted some moon flowers in pots and they're vining already! Excited to bring them over! We'll both get to enjoy them :) she's really excited about it!

Oh, I should add that we did do family photos and my SIL is planning to give her those from "all of us" but I don't really consider that a gift from me/DH/DS per say. But she will be getting something and she will LOVE them.

I honestly have no freaking clue. She's not into jewelry, spas, flowers and all that. So I hzvent the faintest clue what I am doing and I have been thinking of ideas for months now. Yep...still no clue. I love the idea of going over to plant flowers for her though. I love it! Very thoughtful.

Loving her is a foreign concept but you ladies gave really sweet ideas if I ever develop a relationship with this woman.
