"Best gifts" vary from Mother to Mother. I always get my Mom something that is "personal" and is long lasting, if not permanent. If your Mother collects anything, get something nice that adds to her collection. (Mine collects lighthouses). Personally I would not get anything that will be gone in a week. (flowers, candy, etc) With EVERY occasion that I buy a gift for, I always include a letter that I put in the card, telling her things from my heart that I love about her. She always told me that the letters mean the world to her. Just my opinions.
As clicketyclack said, it's different for each mother. My Mom hates getting flowers and refuses to go out to eat. She does love puzzle books! So, I sometimes I get her an assortment of puzzle books accompanied by her favorite snack. Throw in a gift card to Braum's and she's set! (She's not against drive-thru service!)
Yes,being polite and straight a's always help but I understand that you want to buy her a gift.Go with something personal.If she likes travelling maybe a travel book or maybe even something she can use in her next trip.If she likes dressing comfy than maybe you could buy her comfy clothing.If she likes shopping than money or a gift card.Hoped I helped a little!

i ALWAYS ask for the same thing on mother's day. i want to be with my children with NO drama for the day. no arguing, fighting, crying, screaming, no drama from significant others (if they cannot be good, leave them behind). i am finally getting that now that my kids are grown. (and the comment regarding their significant others-two of the three have great significants that i love having over at anytime and am proud and happy to call part of my family. the third doesn't have one right now)-wasn't always the case. - when my children were younger, they would make homemade signs and stick them all over house with i love you, happy mother's day, etc. i REALLY miss that and look back on that with great memories. - its not the big things that moms remember, its the love and the homemade special things that make it into her heart.
I would get her a gift certificate to a day spa where she can get pampered. She deserves it. make sure you get a card and write how much you love her and appreciate all the things she has done for you. lots of love & thank yous'.
I'm a mom, and I like lunch in a nice restaurant, a pandora charm for my bracelet, or a gift card from my favorite department store, and I always want a card. I have all my cards from many years ago. My favorite thing is a great big hug.
