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?

So here, 20 gifts from the kids that we would definitely not want to miss out on, were they to shop up at our front doors.

How sweet and funny and wildly clever are these kids? And yay for Mother’s Day!

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!
