Albany-- Mother's Day is Sunday. You may plan to buy flowers or something just as traditional, but is a traditional gift really what moms want?

A recent survey revealed that sixty-four percent of women said they would choose a digital camera over a more traditional pair of half-carat diamond stud earrings. The results didn't surprise some south Georgia mothers we talked to.

"Some mother's have grandchildren, and I would love to catch some spare of the moment stuff on the grandchildren, so I would love to have a digital camera"said Ethel Williams. 

"Because that way you can take pictures of your children, and do things for your family, but a ring is nice also" said Susan Glass.

Some other non-traditional gift suggestions are limo service for mom, or a live lobster that you can order off the internet.
