Sure, moms say that they just want to see their kids on Mother's Day, but that's hardly payment enough for all that your devoted matriarch has done for you over the years. Is the guilt working?

Repay her for her TLC, this Mother's Day, by taking on the mothering for the day. Here are some of the ways you can show your appreciation, and you don't even have to be with her to do it.

(And sure, if you feel like flowers are a safe bet, check out BloomNation, which works with local florists to deliver bouquets. But from food-delivery services to in-home messages, you can find a personal way to show mom you care.)

Massage Therapy Services

Yelp

She tended to your aches. Now book her a massage for Mother's Day. Check Yelp for recommended spas in your area.

Soothe

Soothe

You can arrange for a massage therapist to come to your mom's place. Sooth, for example, lets you schedule in-home massages.

Zeel

Zeel is another great choice for in-home messages.

Entertainment Service

Hulu

Hulu

How many Winnie the Pooh movies did mom sit through with you? Give her a subscription to an on-demand video service, such as Hulu, so she can binge-watch something more appropriate -- just maybe not "The Handmaid's Tale" on Mother's Day.

Kids Driving Services

HopSkipDrive

HopSkipDrive

She was the taxi driver to soccer practice. Get her out from behind the wheel by signing up for a driving service for kids. HopSkipDrive, for example, designed for kids six and older, can ferry kids around either individually or as part of a carpool. And check your area for local services.

Kango

Kango

Here in the Bay Area, we have Kango for scheduling rides.

House Cleaning Services

TaskRabbit

TaskRabbit

She made your bed for years, but is there any one task moms dislike more than cleaning? (Not my mom.) Through TaskRabbit, you can hire a cleaning service to come over and scrub, wipe, vacuum, and more. Prices are based on the size of the apartment or house. You can arrange for a single visit or schedule weekly, biweekly, or monthly cleanings.

Meal and Grocery Delivery Services

Instacart

Instacart

And you can keep her out of the grocery store with Instacart. The service lets mom place a grocery order and receive it the same day -- even in an hour, Instacart boasts.
