Voices Around Town

What's the most thoughtful Mother's Day gift you've ever given?

Asked in downtown Mountain View. Photos and interviews by Kayla Layaoen.

"I tried to make my mom waffles for a breakfast in bed, like in the movies, but she already ate. I ended up eating the waffles myself."

Chau Nguyen, Palo Alto

"I gave my mom my shoulder. It doesn't sound like much, or anything at all, but giving my mom a shoulder to lean on was all that was missing from our relationship."

Shriya Jaggi, Sunnyvale

"I might have made her a letter, but I can't think of anything else. I really want to give her something amazing this year."

Sandra Sandoval, Yahualica, Mexico

"My brothers and I, with the help of my dad, gave her the day off and a vacation to Mexico to visit family."

Emmanuel Salcedo, Menlo Park

"My mom and I fought during Mother's Day. She grounded me and told me I wasn't allowed to go out. I went to Safeway to buy a bouquet of flowers, then I came home and apologized."

Katley Thomas, San Jose
