As Mother's Day approaches, Moms everywhere are hoping for some very easy-to-give, yet rarely given gifts. Sure, a necklace, pair of shoes, or a new bag might be nice, but deep down what most moms wish for is a break from a mundane task or just some time to themselves.

Here's what moms really wants for Mother's Day (or any other holiday):

  • A long, hot, uninterrupted shower
  • A sink clear of all dirty dishes
  • Clean, folded, and put-away laundry
  • Time to drink a hot cup of coffee or tea
  • For things that get knocked over or dropped to be picked up
  • For uninterrupted time to tackle the never ending To-Do list
  • A night out with friends without the kids
  • An hour to watch a show from start to finish without having to pause or rewind
  • One morning to sleep in
  • An hour of quiet to read a book, journal, meditate or do yoga
  • A trip to the store without kids to get shopping done quickly and tear-free
  • Time to prepare a meal without someone else constantly needing something
  • A hot, uninterrupted meal
  • A clean car (inside and out)
  • Time to get ready without someone holding her pant leg, crying, asking for help or needing to be rescued
  • Privacy when using the bathroom
  • A nap
  • A family photo with everyone smiling
  • A family outing during which everyone is happy
