Mother's Day -- Sunday, May 11 -- is upon us. Are you prepared? We are. As usual we're giving the gift that keeps on giving: stocks. We hope Mom, and any interested investor, can take a look at our annual Stocks for Mom feature and come away with some great investing ideas.

But remember, you don't take your Mom lightly, so don't take your stock-picking lightly, either. Use these as ideas for further research and do your own homework. If you and your Mom -- you really should move out of the house, by the way -- like getting stock ideas to your mailbox every month, check out David and Tom Gardner's Motley Fool Stock Advisor. Or if Mom needs personal assistance on handling the family finances, consider giving TMF Money Advisor so she can finally sort out all that money advice you're always giving her.

Without further ado, here are this year's Stocks for Mom:

A Stock for Mom represents the opinion of one Fool and should in no way be taken as the opinion of either The Motley Fool, Inc. or the company in question, or as representative of anyone or anything other than that specific Fool's thoughts.
