Mothers Day Gifts / March 2, 2019 / Kelly Roberson.
Most mothers receive gifts like chocolates candies or flowers. If they are lucky they may receive a card a basket or some jewelry. I have this theory that the older we get the more we spend on our mothers day gifts but the less time and effort goes into the present! But your mother doesn t want you to spend money on her gift! Sure she ll be much happier receiving a gift than receiving nothing at all but your mum will be much more excited by a gift that takes some of your time rather than your money. Try asking your mother what the favourite mothers day gift she has ever received was. I ll bet it s something you made when you were a child.
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.
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.
This is one of the biggest misconceptions there are about having mothers day gifts delivered. There are actually lots of ways of getting your gift to mom without damage and breakage and flowers are NOT your only option. Here are a few ways of sending gifts to other states. FedEx and UPS They do not break stuff; they will deliver gifts in good condition. Lots of companies that deliver/ ship gifts to other states actually use these services. While your gift will arrive safe and sound in one piece there are minor chances of delay because of the holiday rush. The trick is to send your gift a day or two early or maybe little late if you know mom wont mind. Deliverable gifts Flowers are not the only safe to deliver gifts in the world. People ship everything from crystal glassware to fruit overseas. You just need to find a vendor who can guarantee safe shipping or delivery. In the U.S. gift baskets are one of the most common gifts that can easily be sipped or delivered across states. Try Mothers day gift baskets for your mom. Instead of just a bunch of flowers your mom can have something she ll enjoy. Try mothers day fruit bouquets; they re a unique way of combining fruit and flowers for a gift for mom. Gift Cards You can send these in the mail or have the company send them directly to mom. The only problem is that gift cards are hardly a great gift for mom. Of course if you fail to find a fruit baskets store that can deliver your gift to mom and you aren t up to trusting FedEx or UPS you can do the gift card. It s actually better if you just send mom money because although lots of gift cards are bought in the U.S. annually very few of them are redeemed.
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? If so then how about doing some scrapbooking and making your mother her own personalised scrap book for this mothers day? 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.
