“To the world, you are a mother, to the family, you are the world.”
We have known the above quote since childhood and it is so appropriate for most. On this Mother's Day let us make our moms feel special. Held on the second Sunday of May, every year, this year Mother's Day is to be celebrated on the 14th of May, 2023. The concept of modern-day Mother's Day was devised by Anna Reeves Javis, a popular American Peace Activist of the late 19th century. We must express our appreciation, love, and gratitude to our moms with some special gifts. Here is our list of Mother's Day gifts to choose from.
Hand Care Kit
My first pick on the list of Mother's Day gifts is a good hand care kit for the hands that rocked the cradle. A good hand kit contains hand hydration gloves, a hand mask, a moisturizing hand wash, and a good hand cream. A nail polish is a must-have. Even if all these are not available together, one can bundle them up by herself for her mom. ‘The Body Shop' is the best place to find all these- https://www.thebodyshop.in
Plant in a Ceramic Pot
Mothers are the walking miracles for us, who from our birth, nurture us to grow. For me gifting a real plant to mom is symbolic. One of the best Mother's Day gifts to express our gratitude for their unconditional love and dedication to us is a plant. A plant in a ceramic pot looks amazing and depicts life and responsibility. A plant is good for the environment too. Check www.nestasia.in for their amazing collection of ceramic pots and www.ugaoo.com for online plants and pots.
Pendant with a Photo Inside
We have not seen winged angels around us because god has sent mothers to take care of us. Moms guard and guide us. After we grow up most of us have to live away from her. So one suitable Mother's Day gift is a pendant that holds photos. For a mom, it is amazing to wear a pendant that has her children's photo inserted. It definitely fills the mother's heart with joy and is a symbolic gift. The mom and her children seem to be closely connected all the time. www.etsy.com has many sellers who are making these pendants.
Scented Candles and Flowers
Moms are generally busy all the time, working vigorously, both outside and inside their homes. To relieve them of their tiredness after a long day, scented candles and flowers can be considered very thoughtful Mother's Day gifts. The aroma of a lit-up scented candle and the fresh flowers in the room make a rejuvenating recipe. This idea is soothing, calming, and tranquil. ‘Ferns and Petals' (www.fnp.com) is your place if you have decided on gifting candles and flowers.
Buying health insurance for aging moms is a must and could be the most practical idea out of our Mother's Day gifts list. With age, god forbid, there could be numerous health complications and issues. Good health insurance covers that. Mothers always make their children feel secure in childhood and as they grow it must be their duty to make their moms feel secure.
The Final Idea
What can be a more fabulous gift to a mom than the presence of her children? Be together, this Mother's Day; reserve your time for her. Spending a whole day with your mom would be the precious most Mother's Day gift possible. Be it at home, or at the spa or you may take your mom out for shopping, movie, and dining; just be there for her and with her. It will not be a bad idea to spend time at old age homes where the old moms are separated from their children. Wishing all the moms a very happy Mother's Day.
