With Mother’s Day around the corner it’s time to get together something special for the woman who literally gave you her flesh and blood. It doesn’t have to be hard and there’s a few great gifts that you can score in short time!
Laban Small Resin Fountain Pen
Mom’s a busy woman and although she may love jewelry maybe it’s not her style. One gift I’ve found women never expect is a fountain pen. There are so called “lady’s pens” available (I’m not making any gender judgments here) that are shorter and are popular but in general these things are works of art that come in a wide selection based on personality and make quite moving gifts.
An Old Postcard
Paper didn’t used to be, well, paper – it was a mix of cotton and fabric as well as wood and was very high quality. Getting a post card was something really special. Based on your mother’s personality you can find a lot of interesting imagery on old post cards, a vintage image of a child at play in a frame or in the mail might mean more to her than any more conventional gifts. .
Red Envelope Meaning Pendants
In some cultures it is traditionally to deliver a gift to your loved one in a plain red envelope. The meaning pendants are a simple and elegant way to honor someone based on their contributions to your life and the feelings they engender.
Coin Jewelry Set
If you’re looking for something that is absolutely unique Etsy is a great place to find stuff. Lucky liberty makes a very nice coin jewelry set that any woman would consider flattering. With a heart cut out of a coin and both set in a necklace this set makes it seem like you shopped around a long time!
Mother’s day has a long and storied history, starting (where most histories do) in ancient Greece in the celebration of maternal goddesses. Today it is celebrated in a variety of countries as a way of paying tribute to the mother in your life. Relationships are always changing and many of them are never easy, but whatever history you have with your mother now is a great time to stop and acknowledge any contributions you feel she has made to your life, and to simply say “I love you mom.”
