“What moms really want for Mother’s Day is time alone, without the baby. A babysitter, a clean house, maybe make her dinner,” the new mom and Southern Charm star explained. “But you gotta buy her something too. You gotta buy her something and do things for her. Maybe plastic surgery. Revitalization.”

Ramona Singer

The RHONY star tells Us: “What I really enjoy for Mother’s Day is gorgeous flowers, and a beautiful card that’s hand written, with a note on the side saying how much they appreciate me. That to me is worth everything in the world.”

“I think moms really want something from you, personally, whether it’s a letter or a piece of art or something you made, something that took time and effort to do,” the fabric and rug designer revealed. “Not just going to the store and ordering something gift wrapped that you had no participation in.”

“What do all moms really want for Mother’s Day? A break from being a mom! Let me go sit on a beach somewhere, have a sitter to take the kids,” The Real Housewives of Potomac star and mom of two said. “Hubby can come, but hubby can go too! We really want to relax and be pampered for once, have everyone cater to us. Then give us some peace and time!”

Whitney Port

“Moms really want to be pampered,” the former reality star and Lactaid partner told Us. “A facial or massage or mani/pedi.”
