Canon’s Mother’s Day Surprise- What does Mom want?

When I see the question “What does Mom want for Mothers Day??” I am never surprised by the answers.  For me being a busy mom and working from home, I just want a day to slow down. A day spent with my family and to make memories. Time goes by way to fast and I know to cherish every minute. My youngest has invited me to her school for Mothers Day tea and we are planning a family day trip. I do not want material items, just quality time. And if they were to get me an actual present, I would hope it is one that will help preserve those memories like a great camera.

Other “Gifts” I see moms ask for are help around the house, sleep, meals prepared and cooked and spa days. Seems moms just want a day to relax and be loved. That is perfect in my world 🙂

Check out this amazing video below from Canon. 

I think the reactions of these moms when they see their children’s creations clearly show what moms want for Mothers Day. Memories that last a life time and are cherished forever.

  2. Well said, lady. That video is adorable. Handmade crafts and being left alone to sleep in. There is nothing I want beyond that.

    My kids are going to help me start a container garden! What a fun way to spend mother's day!

  4. What a sweet video, kids capture the most candid moments and handmade gifts or even a sweet comment means more to me than anything money can buy. I should actually hand my little ones a camera and let them go to town for a gift to grandma.

    That is such a sweet video! For me; what I love most is when my kids make me something special from their heart for Mother's day. Those are the best Mother's day gifts.

  6. Such a sweet video!! Love it!! The best Mother's Day gift for me is spending it with the family 🙂 I love being together and just having a nice meal and enjoying each other's company.

  7. When I saw your blog title it's simple! I want a CANON! 😉 Loved the video too. I'm looking forward to my Mothers Day cruise on Sunday. I can't wait to see my son's excitement as he boards the ship.

  12. I absolutely LOVED that video! It gave me goosebumps. As a Canon lover myself I just absolutely can identify with the beautiful pictures that have come from my camera. Next step is to let the boys use my camera!

  13. Sigh…love these types of videos and posts! As much as my son doesn't allow me to sleep, one kiss, one look , one crumpled up piece of paper that he made just for me, take the lack of sleep blues away! Thanks for sharing!
