What Mothers Really Want For Mother's Day

SHENANDOAH VALLEY, Va. - Many celebrated Mother's Day across the valley Sunday.

Some of the most common gifts for Mother's Day are flowers and candy.

According to the National Retail Federation, shoppers are expected to spend around $20 billion this weekend.

Some mom's say the best gifts aren't tangible.

"Just a recognition that I'm loved and that I'm cared for," says Heather Walker.
"You can buy a card for money but we'd much rather have our children give us a call if they can't be there," says Carol Boyd.

"Physical presence, the older you get the more valuable time is," says Lorie Sterling.

This weekend marks the 100th anniversary of Mother's Day.
