Tyler (KETK) — Here's your reminder: Mother's day is Sunday.
If you haven't made plans for the women in your life yet, we have some ideas.
We went straight to some moms themselves and asked what they want this year, but more importantly ... what they don't.
"We don't want clothes," said one mom. "You guys don't know how to shop clothes for us."
"How about no tools," said another. "No mother wants any tools."
"We have a lot of men that call us on the 13th hour that want us to go ahead and get a gift certificate ready," said Angela Moss with Belladonna Day Spa and Boutique in Tyler.
We took to the streets to ask real moms: What *shouldn't* be given this Mother's Day?
Some of the answers we got were dead plants, flowers because they die quickly and appliances of any kind.
Worth noting: Some others said they were good with flowers, though.
So what should you give?
Moms we spoke with said peace and quiet, gift cards, a book and no chores.
A sure bet no matter what among most of the surveyed moms: Any sort of pampering.
"Treating them like the queen of the day ... that's what my mom would want," said one woman.
