With Mother’s Day right around the corner, we thought it would be so fun to ask the kids in our lives, if you could have anything delivered to your mom, what would it be?
Let’s just say our kids know us very, very well!
Also, who has a direct line to George Clooney, Idris Elba, and Lin Manuel Miranda?
Of course, if all these awesome (and hilarious) gifts were to actually show up at our door, we wouldn’t want to miss a single one of them. Which is why we’re glad to be teaming up with our sponsor Ring, which is its very own Mother’s Day gift that keeps on giving long after the holiday is over.
This brilliant interactive video doorbell allows you to answer your door from anywhere, right on your smartphone or tablet, so when an important package is dropped off, a special visitor comes by (Why, Mr. Elba!) , or someone who shouldn’t be at your door, is, you can take instant action.
So here, 20 gifts from the kids that we would definitely not want to miss at our front doors.
How sweet and funny and wildly clever are these kids? And yay for Mother’s Day!
– Don’t miss a special offer from Ring, below –
Naomi, 9: A Musical Coffee Maker Delivered by Celebrities
It’s a jumbo coffee maker that plays “It’s a Beautiful World” by Colin Hay, delivered by Idris Elba and George Clooney who will enjoy coffee with my mom.
Aanya, 4: A Rainbow
I made a rainbow to send to her because she really likes rainbows and because it’s really beautiful in the sky.
Sage, 9: A Money-Dispensing Calculator
I invented a special calculator that I could deliver to my mom for Mother’s Day. All you have to do is type in how much money you need, and then it prints it out for you. This way she would always have enough money for camp and taxes and everything else forever!
River, 6: House In a Can
This is a House in A Can being delivered to our house. It is good to have an extra house just in case one is dirty, or in case you need another one. My mom would like that.
Thalia, 11: The Cast of Hamilton
If I were to have one thing show up to our front door on Mother’s Day, it would be…THE ENTIRE CAST OF HAMILTON! I would choose that because, duh! Who wouldn’t want to see Hamilton and meet the cast FOR FREE on Mother’s Day! (Also, this is not just for me. It really is for my mom. Mostly.)
Ava, 5: Marigolds (AKA Marygoldes)
I want my Mom to have this because there is an extra place in our neighbor upstairs’ garden to plant it for us to share.
Ella, 11: A Globe and World Peace
My mom would like world peace because that means there is no war or worries or fights — including with my sister! But since I can’t give her that yet, I would send her a globe so she would look at it and always think about how I want to give her world peace.
Julia, 7: A Poem and Love
It’s a picture of a poem and a free hugs and kisses gift card. I’d give it to my mom because she loves when I give her lots of love and she loves when I write things for her too.
Isaac, 10: A Big Cooking Kit for the Kitchen
I want to send her a cooking kit for Mother’s Day, because my mom loves cooking! And also a coffee machine because she loves coffee.
Madeline, 5: Flowers Delivered by a Pink Troll
I would have flowers in a vase and a rainbow delivered to Mommy. And I would have Poppy (the troll) deliver them!! Because that would make her happy.
(Note from Madeline’s mom: We’re pretty sure this is Madeline’s wish for herself, but her mommy would still be quite pleased with flowers and a rainbow!)
Wyatt, 4: Pizza
For Mother’s Day, I think my mom needs her own pizza delivered because she always eats all of mine! With extra olives.

Bea, 10: Game-Playing Robot
I would like to give my mom a robot that plays with me when we are bored. So that it wouldn’t complain and my mom could have a break.
Rowan, 9: Poseable Shapeshifting Drone 6000
We should order a Poseable Drone 6000 for my mom on Mother’s Day. It doesn’t exist yet, but it should. Maybe it will someday! The drone can shapeshift into cats or spinach, which are two of my mom’s favorite things, so she’ll never have to worry about running out of them.
Rhys, 10: Gluten-Free Cake
It’s a gluten free red velvet cake with salted caramel block topping and caramel frosting and I picked it for my mom because she can’t eat gluten anymore and looooves red velvet. She’s a wonderful mom who deserves great cake!
Kyla, 13: Celebrity Coffee Delivery
I want Idris Elba and George Clooney to come to our door and bring my mom coffee.
(Editors’ note: We sense a pattern with Georgette’s children!)
Drew, 10: Noise-Blocking Earmuffs
Earmuffs!!! Because she has four kids and it can get loud!!!
Jemma, 7: A Vase of Fresh Flowers
I made a vase for my mom and she would like it at her door because she loves flowers and she loves different colors of them and she’s bright and shiny like them.
Margot, 8: Donut Cake
For Mother’s Day I want a delicious donut cake delivered to Mom and on the top of it, it spells “Cool Mom Picks” because then she can share it with all of the other moms that she works with!
(Editors’ note: We love you Margot!)
Padraig, 8: Pretty Flowers
It’s a picture of flowers because my mom is pretty and so are the flowers.
Alina, 7: Pusheen Holding a Rainbow
Jai, 5: A Unicorn
Nola, 9: A Unicorn Riding a Rainbow
Note from their mom: I must talk a lot about unicorns and rainbows. Ha!
