Mother’s Day

Mother’s Day is a holiday honoring motherhood that is celebrated in different ways all over the world. In the United States, Mother’s Day of 2020 is on Sunday, May 10. While the dates, gifts, and celebrations vary throughout the world, Mother’s Day traditionally involves presenting moms with flowers, cards, and other gifts. This is a day all about celebrating these strong mothers who so selflessly care for their children, grandchildren, and others in their lives. Mother’s Day is a small token of appreciation for all of their hard work and commitment throughout the years.

Where Did It Start?

The celebration of motherhood goes all the way back to the ancient Greeks and Romans. They would have festivals honoring the mother goddesses. In the modern age, we have a set day each year that we celebrate on. The American incorporation of Mother’s Day was started by Anna Jarvis in 1908 and became an official U.S. holiday in 1914. Jarvis once overheard her mother praying for a commemoration day to acknowledge all that mothers contribute to humanity. After her mother’s passing, Jarvis spent the early years of the 20th century campaigning relentlessly for Mother’s Day to be a recognized holiday honoring all mother

So for over 100 years, we have been honoring and observing motherhood each and every year. Traditionally, we get together with them if possible and shower them with gifts, cards, and other forms of gratitude.

Gift Ideas

In general, mothers are so selfless and caring for everyone in their lives. So, even if that special mother in your life says it's not important to her, it would still bring joy to her heart to receive special recognition on Mother’s Day. Not to mention, she absolutely deserves the recognition! If you are looking for gift ideas for a special mom, look no further. We have just the ideas that she will love and appreciate for years and years, not just that one special day of the year.

  • A spa day. Every mom needs and deserves a spa day. Time to disconnect, take some time to themselves, and relax for hours.
  • An experience. Gifting her something to do it is a great way for her to enjoy her time and have an experience she isn't soon going to forget. Some ideas are a wine tasting, indoor skydiving, a cooking class, or tickets to a sporting event or a theater.
  • A wine subscription for that special vino in your life.
  • Plant and garden subscription. Subscriptions that do a monthly box delivery are all the rage and it is for a great reason.
  • An eReader.
  • Personalized jewelry. Your mom would be proud to sport a necklace or bracelet that contains her kid's or grandkid's names, initials, or birthstones.
