How about gifting a goat for Mother's Day this year? An ox or a flock of geese? One of my favorite gifts is through Heifer International where you can support a family in need with something that is meaningful and a real resource. Have your kids make a card with the animal on it or match the donation with a stuffed animal to remind her of the gift given in her honor. It's original, fun and has long term positive impact to a community. (Heifer International, animals from $20)
