This week, I’ve decided to showcase some great potential Mother’s Day gifts. Mother’s Day is fast approaching, and I tend to wait until the last minute to shop. So, every year, my mom gets a plant, or a flower, or a plant, or a… You get the idea. I’m not real creative, over here. Maybe this year, I can shock her, and find something that she will really love. And maybe I can find some things to throw hints at my husband about. Maybe? OK, Probably.
Before I start, though, a little on the history of Mother’s Day. Mother’s Day was first celebrated in the U.S. in 1908 by Anna Jarvis, and it became an official holiday in 1914. It is interesting to note that even though Anna Jarvis was instrumental in Mother’s Day being recognized as an official holiday, she later denounced the holiday’s commercialization and spent the latter part of her life trying to remove it from the calendar. While dates and celebrations vary, Mother’s Day most commonly falls on the second Sunday in May and traditionally involves presenting mothers with flowers, cards and other gifts. It is not only celebrated in the United States, but it is celebrated in different forms throughout much of the world.
Now, on to the fun part!
All of these items would make great gifts for the Mothers in your life, but if you are looking for jewelry, I’m intentionally saving that for next week. There is so much to choose from, and I want to find my absolute favorites. So, if you didn’t see something you love today, make sure and check back next week for some gorgeous jewelry for your wife, mother, or even for yourself.
