14 Mother's Day Gift Ideas, According to Actual Moms

She's the person who always answers your calls, who can comfort you with a single hug, and who knows all your quirks and still loves you—so finding the perfect Mother's Day gift to sum up your love and appreciation isn't exactly a simple task. To find out what moms really want, we tapped 14 women with one simple question: If you could have anything this Mother's Day, what would it be and why?

As it turns out, the ultimate gift goes well beyond a simple object. The majority of moms said they really want an experience—something that allows them to break routine and either spend time solo or with their loved ones. So this year, think beyond items. If you're giving a picnic basket, pack it with her favorite food and wine and drive to a scenic spot to share a meal together; if she's asked for pajamas, book her a hotel room to relax in them; if she's always the first to rise, give her new sheets and let her sleep in.

Psst: This is what moms actually want for Mother's Day.
