To be honest it really depends on what kind of relationship you have with your mom.
If you have a close relationship with your mom & she loves anything you give her then Katherine Rose is right...as long as it comes from you & from the heart she will love it & appreciate it regardless!
On the other hand if you are like me & others like me, whom dont really have a great relationship with our mothers...whom no matter what you get them or how much money they cost you they will constantly complain & b!tch about it. (I am talking from the most expensive gift like jewelery or an expensive crystal vase to a mere 1 stem rose & a card...they will always find something negative to say to you about it! They will never appreciate anything you say or do!
I say just go with your heart...what you feel...and be satisfied with your decision.
I know Mother's Day is over now but an idea for next year is make her a scrapbook. I made my mom one this year. I wrote a long letter to her and then i put pictures of us from when i was a baby till now. She loved it. She was crying.
You know what id think would be cute, a rose and a card. Write something really sweet on the inside of the card that you mean. Remember its the thought that counts !!
A hug, an "I love you and thank you for everything you've done for me, a card and some help with cooking and whatnot during the day would be sufficient.
i believe things that you create and come from the heart are the most memorable and best gft
