From a 2 year old? Something handmade. The handprint in plaster of paris or substitute is a good idea. Other standbys are a picture frame made from popsicle sticks or stiff colorful paper like tagboard. Take a picture of your child and print it out. Decorate the picture frame with buttons, beads, peel off stickers, whatever you want. You can also make a card with a handprint or footprint using finger paint. You could also poke around Michael's for some kind of prepared crafts kit that the two of you could work on together. Go online and google preschool mother's day gifts. You'll get 100s of projects.

Concept question - why would we have to give a wife a gift for mother's day? It should only be from the kids, or if you're helping the kids. We already have a Valentine's Day! And we have our own mothers!

It's a two way street. Your spouse is the mother or father of your children. Why not celebrate the person (mother or father) who is half of that beautiful child you both love?

Sorry I havent responded it has been crazy here. I appreciate all of the responses. I am only giving her a gift from my daughter. I ended up getting something, but I cant post it in case she reads this thread. I hope she will love it. A day at the spa is something that I have given to her in the past....Nail salon etc.

Thank you again for all of your responses
