The second Sunday in May is Mother’s Day. The true essence of thankfulness will bring us to the front door of mom’s house with gifts in hand, from hearts that have a sincere desire to express gratitude.
Mother’s Day gifts come in a variety of selections and styles. Most often these gifts are simple flower arrangements, chocolates and cards. Moms will never respond unkindly, but perhaps it is time to consider a gift that is a thoughtful indicator of the love and appreciation you have for your mother. A gift of considerate choosing that takes your gratitude to a level that will surprise and delight the very one who gave you life.
Our mothers spend a great deal of time in the kitchen and a unique kitchen gift or a gourmet gift of elegance and style will be remembered long after flowers fade, wither, and are finally discarded.
Imagine some time in the future; mom sits down for a cup of tea and traces her finger across the top of a Euro Glass Teapot, or a hand-blown set of oil and vinegar cruets, she received as a gift from you. She remembers special long ago moments she was certain she had forgotten. A thoughtful, daily used gift can provide a personal ongoing connection between you and your mother. Best of all – her thoughts will be toward you, not the gift.
This in no way diminishes the effectiveness of the gift; it actually enhances the overall gift giving experience. You see, a well thought out Mother’s Day gift is as much for you as it is for her; useful and appreciated – with memories attached.
When the second Sunday in May rolls around, consider a kitchen gift or a gourmet gift that conveys to your mom that you believe Mother’s Day is more than a special occasion – the day is a moment of insistence that she be held in the highest esteem. It may even be a moment when strained relationships can be mended and old offenses forgotten.
Long after the second Monday in May, our mom will settle back in her daily routine. Why not give her another reason to think of you each day. And you know, she will indeed.
