It s not as hard as it sounds; it just involves resisting the urge to fall in line with everyone else waiting to buy a bunch of flowers. Look for ideas Gift ideas don t fall out of the sky; you have to look for them. The best place to start looking is in your mom s favorite magazine catalog or her favorite store. If you really want mom to have a great day give her some company when she goes shopping and checkout what she likes. You ll get an idea of what kind of stuff she likes. Make sure what you get her is worthy of a mother s day gift. She might need a hairbrush or maybe an ironing board but those aren t the kind of things that make good gifts for mom. Try an original way to gift something old You shouldn t be reinventing the wheel but you can definitely try to modify it a bit. Flowers are out of the question but you can always look for alternatives to flowers.
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.
