Mother's Day gifts: A way to remind tweens that recognition of others matters

Events like Mother's Day can serve as a perhaps sad reminder that our kids are growing up and that they are now too old to bring home sweet crafts with thumbprints or glittery macaroni. The good news, though, is that they are old enough to understand the importance of saying thank you, and days like Mother's Day and Father's Day serve as lovely reminders to tweens that they are a part of a family and that recognition of what others do for them is important.

While I don't believe that love can be quantified, I do think that giving gifts to honor someone who has had an influence in your life is not a bad thing. It's not about the material items purchased, but rather about the demonstration of gratitude.

How do your plans for Mother's Day gifts match up with those surveyed below?
