Mothers Day Gifts / February 27, 2019 / Blanche Durham.
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.
Mother s Day is on the second Sunday of May. For 2011 this holiday will be on May 8th. This article informs the origin of Mother s Day and provides some suggestions for selecting the perfect gift for mom. Mothers Day in the United States was proposed by Anna M. Jarvis (1864-1948). Her mother Mrs. Anna Reese Jarvis was a minister s daughter and taught Sunday School for 20 years in the Andrews Methodist Church of Grafton West Virginia. The younger Anna Jarvis was only twelve years old when she listened to her mother s wish during a Sunday school lesson on mothers in the Bible that one day someone would found a memorial mother s day. There were many days of observance for men but none for women.
If you re good at drawing or handy with graphical software on the computer why not make your own card? Your mother will love you for it! Are you good at scrapbooking?

There are lots of things you could scrapbook on from events in the previous year a summary of your mothers life up to this point or a scrapbook of the entire family. I guarantee this will go down a treat! Another thing you could do is make bouquets. For this mothers day I am making some really cute looking candy bouquets.
These baskets are limited only by your imagination. Expect a customized gift basket to cost a bit more that one that has already been created. However a customized gift will definitely be unique. Also you will be able to hand pick the items that go into the gift so you can be sure the final product is one your mother will love. Most mothers wont admit to this but they are often quite a bit disappointed with the mothers day gifts they receive. Don t get me wrong all mothers will be very happy to receive their gifts and they will be very grateful for them but they can see how little thought goes into them.
