May 10, 2013— -- intro: So you don't have any Mother's Day plans yet.
Don't worry, it happens! Money can sometimes be the issue. Looking for an inexpensive idea to show that special maternal lady in your life how much you care?
Well, how does free sound?
For Mother's Day this year, businesses are showing their gratitude giving away freebies to all the moms.
Hooters, the popular "breastaurant," is hoping to appeal to the female population by offering a free meal to mothers this Mother's Day. Moms just have to bring one or more of their children to the restaurant and buy a drink.
If you'd prefer to take your mother somewhere with fewer girls in tight outfits, here are some other Mother's Day freebies ABC News pulled together to celebrate the moms who deserve only the best.
