I think I’ve heard that, next to Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day is the biggest flower-giving occasion of the year (and I may have even that backwards), and the day of the year when more people dine in restaurants. Of course, food and flowers, while vital to existence, and I include flowers intentionally in the vital category, are ephemeral by nature. Along with such passing pleasures for moms, consider a more lasting gift for those that you honor on this day.
There is a lot to be said for the humble macaroni necklace and the hand pressed into a circle of clay. A hand-made card with a personal drawing will always be treasured (as in, moved from house to house and attic to attic throughout Mom’s life, never to be disposed of no matter what without penalty of ‘you don’t love me anymore’). Photos are always an excellent choice, too – framed, even better. How about this delightful frame styled with buttons, bow and tag in a collage style – great for a scrapbooker.
Among the thousands of ornaments here, you know we’ve got you covered for Mother’s Day, too – Mother, Mother-in-Law, Grandmother, get your ornaments here!
One of my favs is this angel figurine line (I told you about them earlier) – delicate pastel colors, a dusting of glitter, and a lovely message for Mother. This one will be a year-round reminder of your love.
Here’s a good article on “green” ideas for Mother’s Day gifts, from Judy Weinstock.
“My mom is a never ending song in my heart of comfort, happiness, and being. I may sometimes forget the words, but I never forget the tune.” ~ Graycie Harmon
“On Mother’s Day I have written a poem for you. In the interest of poetic economy and truth, I have succeeded in concentrating my deepest feelings and beliefs into two perfectly crafted lines: You’re my mother; I would have no other!” ~ Forest Houtenschil
~Janet @ The Christmas Place
Oh, one more that you’ll enjoy – “Setting a good example for your children takes all the fun out of middle age.” ~ William Feather, The Business of Life, 1949
