They are available online as are numerous discounts on them and they re guaranteed fresh. The best part is that they re unique and a break from the ordinary mothers day gifts like gift certificates and flowers. Greeting cards are always best bought in stores. The ones online are usually handmade (simple stuff that you can do yourself) and hugely overpriced. It s even cheaper if you try and replicate something you ve seen online. You can t do all your mothers day shopping in one spot so it s good to pick the best place for everything and then explore the variety. Choosing the right gift for Mothers Day can be really difficult.
Here s how you can buy a truly unique gift for mom. Think objectively Does mom really need more flowers? Does she really need the king size super deluxe floral arrangement that has flowers from the Amazon rainforest? They re going to die any way if not in two days then in a week. Flowers are flowers; the typical mom gift. No matter how big the arrangement is it s still going to die. What you ve just done is spent a whole lot of money on a whole lot of nothing. If you ve really got that much cash to burn burn it on something that s worthwhile. Think outside the box For every person who vows to get their mom a gift that s totally out of the box there are at least ten who will sell out for flowers.
Two years after her mother died in May of 1905 Anna Jarvis and her friends began a letter-writing campaign to gain support in declaring a national Mother s Day holiday. She felt children often neglected to appreciate their mother while the mother was still alive. She hoped this day of celebration would increase respect for parents and strengthen family bonds. On May 8 1914 the Congress designated the second Sunday in May as Mother s Day. President Woodrow Wilson proclaimed Mother s Day as an official national holiday. Mothers Day has been observed annually thereafter.
Take gift baskets go online and search the hell out of every kind. Try mothers day fruit baskets or a unique concept like fruit bouquets if you can have a circus elephant bring your mom balloons go for it. The point is to think big and think original. Moms all over America may be facing a lonely Mother s Day this year. Most Americans are struggling to pay bills to pay mortgages and to keep up with the car payments. People are moving to different states for jobs and that means that most will not have the luxury of living near enough to visit mom. Or that most won t be able to afford to visit her. So that means only one thing your choice in mothers day gifts is now limited to flowers; the only gift that you can send to another state without fear of it being ruined.
