Parenting 411: Blogging mom shares Mother's Day gifts ideas

Posted: Updated:

Bronx blogging mom Geanine Petraglia, of Macaroni Kid, lays out what moms really want for Mother's Day.

Petraglia says keep it simple, buy mom a gift that will help her relax. 

Gifts like spa days to breakfast in bed and sentimental gifts straight from the heart are what most mothers are looking for, she says. 

Don't break the bank; Petraglia says the last thing your mom wants you to do is spend a lot of money. 

And above all, giving mom a much-needed break is what most moms are looking for, Petraglia admits. 

"I think just a day off from being mom. You know, a day off from mom duties, responsibilities like making dinner, cleaning the house and doing the laundry. Moms just need a day off from all of that," she says.
