Many people are under the assumption that husbands have an obligation to give a gift to their wives on Mother’s Day. However, some people are simply against the idea of such an obligation. They feel that their wives are not their mother and therefore should not receive a gift from them on this particular day.
With that being said, these same men are more than willing to take their children to mall so that they can buy jewellery for their mum. They will even spend hours helping build crafts, make homemade cards and anything else that goes toward the celebration of their mother. Although these men agree that their wives deserve everything that the holiday implies and more, they do not feel that it is their place to buy a gift.
Fortunately, many wives are in agreement. They do not want their husbands to buy them gifts for Mother’s Day. They are completely satisfied with the time that the family spends together that day, such as dinner out or a picnic in the park. Then, there are those that feel the man that made her a mother should show some recognition of the day. For some, a card, a sweet gesture or a simple thank you is plenty. The secret is to do what works best for your family.
