I would have loved to receive a framed photo taken of me and DS when we are unaware and unposed - something that really shows how much love there is between Mum and child. I’m a single mum so it’ll never happen but something like that to treasure would be priceless to me.

This.

My first mother's day my husband went to Harvey Norman and used their photo lab(?) to make a personalised card with photos of us and our boy and a few lovely words (he isn't big with words). It was lovely. It made me cry and I still have it and absolutely love it!!

Your wife will realise that her son didn't get the gift, so it can also be from you showing your appreciation for her being your son's mother, you know?

I just thought I would put that out there.

So really, your gift should reflect that appreciation.  What does she want?  What does she sigh when she is bemoaning "if only I had" - show you listened.  It doesn't have to be a "thing", it can be an action, it can be an opportunity - it can even just be a day of realising that she is the queen.

Unless your wife has allergies, I think you can’t go wrong with flowers and a card with your sons scribble/handprint

The main thing I want for Mothers' Day is to wake up to a clean home and have a break from chores.

We had a special generational day for my first. We took my mum and our little one to the zoo. We all enjoyed the day (even though our baby was too young to know).

I loved DH writing a card from DS and from him telling me what I was doing had value.

You can purchase an affordable white plate and print hand prints on the bottom. A gift for life that can be used for special family occasions. I also like my tea towels with hand prints.

A pandora is another option that could capture the special together.

Mothers' Day for us ha she always been about the little things.

Enjoy.

Thanks very much for all the suggestions! :thumbs:
What I ended up going with is a spa voucher (massage, facial, nails, whatever) and as she's out tonight, I've bought a canvas and some finger paint. I cut out a heart shape already, so we'll be doing hand prints in the heart shape just before bath time tonight (drop sheets are down already).
Even if it ends up looking crap, I'm sure she'll appreciate it. :yes:

I am super confident she will love the voucher and the canvas :)

So the "hand print" thing clearly didn't work! But I'll still claim it as a partial success.

She is going to love it and I’m sure she will appreciate the effort you have gone to make sure her day is special.

Thanks again, she did really like it.
After I took the photo, I actually put it in the oven at 35C for half an hour, as my son had used a lot of blue in the middle that wasn't going to dry.
My wife wants to put it up on the wall.
