  31. I was a single mom so there really was no one to take my son out to buy me anything. Having said that, I still have all of the things my son made me over the years and he is 30 now. He always had great taste and when he was about 4, he picked out a ring for me which I bought. It was my mother's day gift. I still have it and wear it. A beautiful pink CZ in a gold setting. It's the nicest ring I have.

  57. Lilac bushes! Every home I've owned, I get lilac bushes for my yard on Mothers Day. I think that is the best gift. Although I've sold two of the homes. I drive by and see my lilac bushes blooming and makes me smile that another mother is enjoying the beautiful smell of the flowers! This year, I was given more lilac bushes from my daughters to put in the yard of our new home... :o)
