This year, Mother’s Day falls on Sunday May 11th. Mother’s Day is a wonderful way to show your Mom, Mama, Mum, or Mother that you are thankful for her presence in your life. Mom’s life lessons that she taught you when you were young have undoubtedly guided you through life’s obstacles, now that you’re a grown-up. A gift on Mother’s Day does not have to be showy or spectacular. What’s important is that you put some thought and feeling into it and that you get her something that shows her just how much you cherish her and her own unique and vibrant spirit.
One gift idea would be an understated, but lovely piece of jewelry. You should be somewhat aware of what your Mom likes, but perhaps try to stray a bit from the predictable. It will add an element of surprise and joy when she opens up the little box to see a unique gift. A great place to find dainty, one-of-a-kind jewelry is Catbird NYC. They have many beautiful pieces to choose from such as earrings and necklaces to more one-of-a-kind pieces like their Kitten Mittens. All of their jewelry is lovingly handmade in their factory in Brooklyn, NYC. And if you’re not able to find any jewelry for Mom, Catbird has a great selection of beauty, fragrance, home, and stationery items.
Another treasure trove you can search in is the always wonderful online marketplace Etsy. You can find a plethora of handmade goodness in pretty much any category you can think of. If Mom likes elegant vases, or perhaps vintage handbags, or whimsical throw pillows – Etsy will not disappoint. Or perhaps your Mom likes fragrances but she has grown tired of the usual mall-bought scents, you can surprise her with some homemade solid perfumes from Daisycakes Soap. They have many interesting scents such as “Patchouli Rose” and “Celtic Rain”.
Whatever gift you choose to give Mom, what’s important is that you spend time with her and let her know that she is appreciated on Mother’s Day and every day.
