Not sure what to get mom for Mother's Day?

FOX's Lisa Brady tells you how to avoid getting it wrong with "FOX on Family":

Is it really the thought that counts? For Mother's Day that may depend on how deep the thought is:

(Hoberman) "Take a few minutes and say what would make my mom's life easier, better, sweeter."

But author, consultant and mom Judy Hoberman says don't make the common mistake of trying to make mom's work easier:

(Hoberman) "You don't want to get anything that has to do with a household appliance or even anything for her job if she works outside the house."

Hoberman got an iron one year, but another year, she got a letter signed by Eleanor Roosevelt, very meaningful to someone focused on women's issues:

(Hoberman) "You want to get something that is so important to her."

To show her just how important she is. Same advice goes for moms shopping for their mom: make it personal. From younger kids homemade gifts always work, though the best gift of all may be time:

(Hoberman) "So it could be something that gives her more time with the kids, or something special that the family does together."

It can also be a rough day for families who've lost moms for instance. Hoberman says if you want to make a difference for someone, just make it special.
