    My favorite Mother’s Day gift ever was a “World’s Best Mom” mug. It makes me smile every morning when I drink my tea.

    I would have to say it’s the little projects that my two children created when they were younger! They are college-age now and it is so sweet to look back on some and see their handwriting just beginning to develop. The time truly does fly by!

    My favorite mother’s day present was a tissue paper flowers made by my six year old son, rather lop sided, but given with so much love!

    Little boys can be so sweet! I also received tissue paper flowers when mine was about 6. I still have them on the shelf in my office. They always make me smile.

    The best Mother’s Day gift I ever got was a 99¢ card from my 13 year old step-daughter telling me I’m the best mom she could ask for. She’s almost 21 now and we’re still as close as any “real” mother and daughter could be. No matter what other Mother’s Day gifts I get, I will never forget that card.

    I usually just get a gift card.
    Honestly, my son is such a gift to me. Mother’s Day is its own reward.

    I actually don’t have a favorite Mother’s Day present because my daughter treats me like a queen every day. I don’t have to wait for a designated day to be honored. I’m very blessed.

    I love getting flower plants for mother’s day. And that’s what I give my mother too. This year I’m giving her an orchid because she misses her orchids from hawaii. She had to come back to live with my brother when we lost dad last year.

    My son made me a really great heart necklace in school last year. He was so proud of it! I can’t wait to see what his kindergarten teacher has them doing this year!

    Every yarn lover needs a great book to make wonderful things out of. My favorite mother’s day gifts have all been either a craft book or yarn. Love it!

    My favorite Mother’s Day gift is lunch with my Mom, Dad, Brother, husband, Daughter and Son. I listen and add to the conversation of how fun these people really are. Witty, intelligent, playful and mean they all are and I enjoy our time together. Then they give me yarn … Oh that I suppose is just the fantasy part. Ha ha. Family time is enjoyed and special. Happy Mother’s Day to all you amazing Moms!

    My favorite Mother’s Day gift is the plane ticket to visit my daughter so we can be together on Mother’s Day.

    The best: A few years ago I knit Mom a full length entrelac dress. On her birthday, in late April, she asked if it couldn’t be shortened to sweater length. It was ready to be given back to her on Mother’s Day.
    The worst: When I was 7 my brand new stepfather took me shopping for my Mother’s Day gift – at the hardware store. He filled a plastic caddy with dust cloths, sponges, scrub brushes and other cleaning supplies. He told me Mom would like it because it would make the housework easier. What. A. Jerk!
    Thanks for the giveaway – KittenWhiplash on Ravelry.

    My favorite gift was a mini photo album I made for my mom, accordion style. It was filled with rubber stamped images and handwritten quotes and tied with a ribbon. My mom does not have many photos albums-most of her photos are tossed in a box! So I collected photos of me, my grandmother and great grandmother and assembled them all together.

    Sorry, but the Congratulations messages don’t say who is being congratulated. I’m guessing not me, because I haven’t been notified
