As Mother’s Day nears, take a look at some gift ideas to help make your mom’s day special.

Yoga pants: Whether she’s working out, taking a yoga class, or just lounging around, most moms would love to open up a new pair of yoga pants this Mother’s Day.

Pajamas: Moms would love the opportunity to spend more time lounging around or sleeping in. Give mom a new pair of pajamas this year to help her get started. It might also give her an excuse to take a well-deserved nap.

Jewelry: Jewelry makes a nice gift for mom because let’s face it, moms don’t often splurge on themselves. Mother’s Day is a great time to give mom that piece of jewelry she’s had her eye on. It can also be a nice time to give your mom a sentimental piece of jewelry, either a bracelet with charms that reflect her interests, a ring featuring her children’s birth stones, or a locket with a photo of her loved ones.

Spa day: Give your mom a day of relaxation by taking her to the spa. If your mom doesn’t want to go to the spa, bring the spa to her by putting all of the spa necessities in a gift basket for her.

Gardening items: If your mom loves to garden get her some new plants, flowers and gardening tools. You could also offer to help your mom weed the garden and prune some plants.

  • PHOTOS: Madison store helps collect hundreds of Teddy bears for police

    MADISON, Wis.--A west Madison store is part of an effort to collect hundreds of stuffed animals to donate to six police departments in Southern Wisconsin.

    Todd Merryfield, owner of The Learning Shop at 714 S. Gammon Road, said the store is collecting the bears for officers who use them to help comfort children with whom police come in contact.

    "This is a great way to support what (police) do," Merryfield said. "Those are the kids that need something like this to reassure them, calm them down, and let them know that things are all right."

    Nearly 500 plush animals were donated Tuesday, a Learning Shop spokeswoman said. The Madison store's effort is part of a larger initiative through the Bears for Humanity organization.
