What moms really want

Buying gifts for a mother can be a difficult task. If you're struggling to think of something special for the special woman in your life, never fear! We took to Facebook and Twitter and asked moms what would make their Mother's Day special.

Here's what they had to say:

Breakfast in bed and absolution from washing the dishes. - @cathjenkin

A picnic in the park reading a nice novel while the kids play and wear themselves out. - @MaMotau

Getting handed a good book, a bottle of champers and enjoying an hour of quiet in a bubble bath. - @MamaZombieZA

My perfect mothers day would be a family lunch with food not made by us and no dishes to clean. - @cindybagley28

My perfect Mother's Day would be quality time outdoors with Kita and her dad. - @ChantiWilson

A whole day all to myself with nothing to do but relax. - @kambabe

My family all together laughing, eating and just loving! - Tammy Leyds Booysen

An hour out of my day unwinding at a spa getting a nice massage! The best ever! - Tatum Arnold

To spend the day all by myself. To watch something else on TV than Mickey Mouse Clubhouse. To eat my favourite spicy food instead of fish fingers and 2minute noodles. To take a long, hot bath without the plastic dolphins and/or Woody and Buzz. To read my new novel instead of The Aristocats for the 817th time. Am I a bad mother? - Sankie Botha Oosthuizen

Breakfast in bed with my man and our son! - Tarryn Trevor-Jones

Not having to cut up someone's food and be asked every 5 minutes "Mom, can I?". - Suegnet Landman

To get a full body massage to relax and not have to change a nappy all day. - Jessica Perelson

Moms, it's your turn to share with us! What do you really want for Mother's Day?
