Mother's Day Gifts

Mother’s Day is coming up this Sunday and many people may have no idea what to get for their moms! You might not be on great terms with your mom but she still gave you life and she, along with other moms, deserve a little something for that, even if it’s only one day a year. You can also give a gift to your aunt who has children or your grandma, since they are mothers in your life.

Mother’s Day was first celebrated in 1908, when founder and social activist Anna Jarvis held a memorial for her peacemaking mother. It was then in 1914 that former President Woodrow Wilson signed a proclamation making the second Sunday in May the national holiday, Mother’s Day, after many states in the United States of America had starting celebrating the holiday a few years before.

To celebrate this year, you can buy your mom the traditional and cheesy flowers and card or chocolate. You can also buy tickets to a movie she would like to see that is in the theaters right now, or if it isn’t buy her the movie as a DVD itself. Another great gift idea is a gift card for Amazon or her favorite clothing store, again, it doesn’t have to be a lot. Every mom could even use a spa day, so a prepaid appointment at a good spa is fantastic if you want to go all out. But if you can’t afford any of this, a full day of house cleaning not done by her is always great! Your mom deserves something this Sunday, even if it’s the least, like spending time with her in a way she will enjoy. She will definitely appreciate it.
