Happy Mothers DayHappy Mothers Day

Mothers Day has a long and rich history, beginning with the ancient Greeks and Romans, who celebrated the various goddesses that they worshipped.  These humble beginnings gave way to the early Christian celebration of “Mothering Sunday”, on the fourth Sunday of Lent.  On this day, Christians would return to their “mother church” to celebrate and children would present their mothers with flowers as a token of respect and admiration.

The Celebration of Mothers Day

The traditional celebration  that we have today didn’t come about until the time of the American Civil War, when “Mothers Day Work Clubs” were established to help mothers learn how to take care of their children.  In 1870, the first “Mother’s Day”, a day set aside specifically to honor the work and sacrifices made by all mothers, was established and in 1914, President Woodrow Wilson signed legislation setting aside the second Sunday of May as a national holiday to honor mothers.

Since then, the day has become one of the biggest gift giving occasions in the entire calendar year.  The traditional gifts for Mother’s Day include flowers, candy and cards, and this is one of the biggest money making days of the year for florists and card companies.  Restaurants also count Mother’s Day as one of the busiest and most profitable days of the year as thoughtful families seek to ease the dinner making responsibility for Mom for that day.

Mom’s Special Day

Of course, gift giving for Mom’s special day isn’t limited entirely to flowers or cards.  You can give any kind of gift that would be meaningful to her.  With the ability to shop on line, it can be easy to find something to suit any mother, no matter what her individual interest, hobby or personality.  Some mothers might like kitchen gadgets; still others might prefer a good book by their favorite author.  You could get her movie tickets for a special night out or a scarf or sweater in her favorite color.

If your mother is into all things beachy or nautical, there are plenty of ideas to choose from here, including our nautical themed throw pillows, brass ship’s lamps, or model lighthouses.  There are also trivets, coasters, or beach related signs to add just the right touch of the sea to any mother’s house.  From the fun and whimsical to authentically detailed models, you can find something to suit any taste.

Of course, most mothers will tell you that the gift they cherish most is the chance to spend time with their children and grandchildren.  If distance precludes a face-to-face visit, you can pick up that phone or connect via Skype to share a few personal moments with Mom on her special day.   Or you can make a personal gesture like preparing breakfast in bed or doing some of those long neglected household chores that will make her life much easier.  

There is nothing in life like the love of a mother and it’s only fitting that we set aside one day a year to let our moms know just how much they mean to us.  So don’t let another Mother’s Day go by without reaching out to your mom and making a gesture that acknowledges everything gifts of all…your life and her love…the least you can do is give her the perfect Mother’s Day gift in return!

Of course, gift giving for Mom’s special day isn’t limited entirely to flowers or cards.  You can give any kind of gift that would be meaningful to her.   She’s given you the most precious gifts of all…your life and her love…the least you can do is give her the perfect Mothers Day gift in return!
