    1. UTO (Unpaid Time Off)
    Every mom has a list of about 20 things she'd like to get done on any given day, but she usually only has time to successfully conquer three. Our moms would love a day to tackle their To-Dos or just to be free to do whatever they want, no questions asked.

    2. Sleep
    Moms think going to sleep when they are tired on Saturday and awakening on their own without the alarm clock or the voice of a child on Sunday is a dream come true. Plus, it's 100 percent free!
    Extra credit: Give mom a full night's rest and a nap, preferably in a hammock with a good book and a cold drink.

  • 3. Clean House
    Being a mom is stressful, and coming home to a clean house, even if it only lasts 10 minutes, is like a little slice of heaven for us. Hire a professional or, at the very least, get the kids to help pick up around the house.
    Extra credit: Purchase a housecleaning package from a coupon site to use throughout the year, or hire a pro to come in and tackle deep cleaning or organizing projects.

    4. Spa Day
    A massage, mani/pedi or facial are all wonderful gifts to show us how much we're appreciated. Older kids could get creative and set up a home spa with candles, homemade scrubs, etc.

    5. A Day Free from the "Mom Routine"
    We love being mamas; we really do. But we would also love a day free from the "mom routine." That means no dishes, laundry, chauffeur duty, dressing little ones, getting kids out the door, mediating sibling arguments, etc.

    7. Home Delivery Service
    For $79 a year through Amazon Mom, you can get free, two-day shipping on millions of items with Amazon Prime. Our moms have saved a ton of time, not to mention their sanity, trying to run errands with small kids in tow. We think it's worth every penny.

    8. Turn the Honey-Do into a Honey-Done List
    Every time we walk by that broken _______ (fill in the blank), it drives us crazy. If you complete the Honey-Do List of lingering household projects, you will be one happy man come Father's Day — trust us!

    9. What's for Dinner?
    If you take care of dinner, including the grocery shopping, for one week, it would free us up to enjoy more quality time as a family, which is what we all want.

    10. The Best Things in Life are Free
    The gifts we will treasure forever are the homemade cards, handprints and photo frames from our children that remind us what a blessing it truly is to be a mom.
