IF you help your kids to buy presents for their mom, let them choose what they want to give. Often, a young child will pick an odd present such as a toy or something else that appeals to them rather then something that is suitable for an adult. However, letting them pick out and give gifts like that is letting them express their love to mom. If you interfere and pick out what you think is suitable, the child's individuality disappears from the gift giving process. Remember, it doesn't need to be a gift that mom can use that's important, it's the time and thought that matters.
