Lynchburg, VA- Sunday is Mother's Day. It's a special time to show the mothers in our lives we're thinking of them and appreciate them. There's all kinds of ways to do it.
We asked you in tonight's web poll "What is the best Mother's Day gift to either give or receive?"
In the poll we let you choose from all the usual gifts, and here's what you chose.
Topping the scale at 18%, the best gift is going out to eat. Something homemade comes in at 14%. At 13% is a keepsake of some kind. And tied at 12% are jewelry and flowers.
But there are other popular gifts for mom out there.
We stopped by the mall to see what shoppers had in mind for their mothers. Quite a few people were looking to pamper mom with things like lotions, creams and perfumes.
But to see what mother's really want, we asked a mother of four what her favorite Mother's Day gift was, and it turns out, it didn't come from a store at all.
"Probably when my kids were little and made me breakfast in bed. Because they're boys and for boys to cook, well now they still love to cook, but when they were little and they try that it's kinda cute and it's sweet," said Cindy Camarata.
Mrs. Camarata said all she wanted for Mother's Day this year, was for all of her family to be together in one place.
