Welcome to this week’s edition of Aloha Friday. In Hawaii, Aloha Friday is the day that we take it easy and look forward to the weekend. So I thought that on Fridays I would take it easy on posting, too.

Therefore, I’ll ask a simple question for you to answer. Nothing that requires a lengthy response. If you’d like to participate, just post your own question on your blog and leave your link below. Don’t forget to visit the other participants! It’s a great way to make new bloggy friends!

My question is:

What do you think is the perfect Mother’s Day gift?

    I would have to say, something hand-made like a card. I do not have kids yet but my mother always tells me hand-made things are best & from the heart!

    I don’t have kids yet but my mom always said a clean house, peace and quiet, a good book, great food and some time alone at home is all she needs.

    Actually I think a stick or a piece of sand would mean just as much to a mom as anything as long as it is from her child. But I will say my mom being my best friend is the best gift I can ever think of to get her. :) Happy Mother’s Day and have a wonderful weekend :)

    A fun day with the family and a special meal together is my perfect Mother’s Day. Of course, last year at Disney World was beyond perfection (except when my glasses broke).

    Something hand made from my kids and anything thoughtful from my husband…a clean house and a smaller laundry pile is always wonderful.

    I hope you have a beautiful Mother’s Day Kailani!

    My sons are grown and don’t live with us any longer so the gift of their time is better than anything they could buy for me. On Mother’s Day their girlfriends go spend time with their own mothers and I get my sons all to myself for the whole day. Perfect!

    The perfect gift is anything thoughtful. This year my husband ordered my favorite chocolates online – Godiva! I love him so much!! I cannot wait until my children are old enough to come up with ideas on their own. That will be so fun!

    A day of relaxation (mani/pedi) alone and then a night hanging with the family. But I’d have to say a few hours to myself would be ideal!

    I’m not exactly sure, I’m not a mother myself. But, I know my mom likes pictures of everyone, especially grandkids – so I took my nieces photos and had them imprinted on magnets and in a collage.
