Mothers Day Gifts / March 3, 2019 / Fran Petty.
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.
Yet meaningful gifts help to warm the hearts of mothers even more. Mothers Day gifts can either be of a traditional nature such as flowers or chocolates or they can be something that speaks to her interests more specifically. Your Gift to your mom on her special day can be as special and different as she is to you. You can get her a nice piece of jewelry or name a star after her.
