Accepting presents doesn't seem to be something either seems to take to naturally. We usually find other ways such as dining out or taking them on all expense paid vacations to honor them. One day (after discussing with my hubby) I would really like to "gift" them with something very special. It would have to be when they least expect it because getting them to accept could be tough! Our hopes are that they will accept it as a token of our admiration, gratitude, and love for each of them. Both mom's would probably make my husband and I return items such as a 3 carat diamond ring or 4 carat diamond ring even though we feel that our mother's deserve that (and more) for all that they are and all that they do. They are just practical that way when it comes to spending, which is a wise lesson that they have taught us. They would much rather the money be spent on their children & grandchildren than on themselves. Such selflessness makes for an even greater desire to shower our Mom's with something truly special! Gifts such as clothing, perfumes, and home decor items has proven to be a hit and miss - but a nice piece of jewelry sounds like the PERFECT idea!
