Show Her How Much You Care
Being a mother is a special, difficult job that often goes unrecognized save for the one day of the year that we celebrate our mothers and grandmothers for all that they do. If you're looking for the perfect way to say thank you, surprise her with a truly special gift that lasts longer than cards or flowers! Fine jewelry is a beautiful way to say “Thanks, Mom.” Every time she puts on her new necklace or personalized mother's bracelet, she'll remember how special you made her feel and how much she loves you. This Mother's Day, show Mom how much you care with jewelry from Atlanta West.
From "Mothering Day" to Now
The history of Mother's Day in the United States goes back to the early twentieth century and draws from the tradition of Mothering Day. Mother's Day was officially proclaimed a nationally recognized day by President Woodrow Wilson in 1914. Mother's Day in the U.S. didn't start out with the tradition of gifting mothers with jewelry, flowers, and cards, but it evolved quickly to incorporate tangible expressions of love. Rumor has it that the founder, Ann Jarvis, protested Mother's Day for its lack of sincerity — so make sure you get Mom fine jewelry she'll really love, from the bottom of your heart!
A Momento for the Pet Mom
There are some heated debates over whether owning a pet constitutes being a "mom" or not, but argument aside, it's a great day to say, "Thank you for always cleaning out the litter box." Gifting her with a charm locket with a photo of her fur baby is a sweet option; custom engraving your pet's name on a bracelet or bar necklace is exceptionally adorable. Any way you can incorporate your pet into the surprise will be memorable and make her the happiest pet mama in the world. Why not have a little fun celebrating your family this Mother's Day and make the day complete with some cake and dog treats?
Classic, Timeless Staples
Who says that practical gifts can't be fun? Get something for Mom that's destined to become an everyday staple in her wardrobe — a simple pair of diamond studs to never take off, a short gold necklace that goes with everything from a t-shirt to a cocktail dress, or a classy solitaire gemstone ring in hues of blue to pair with daily denim. Not every piece she owns needs to be a showstopper; in fact, the more elegant, simple jewelry is often the accessory that gets worn the most. Gift Mom with something indispensable this year that's she'll continue to wear day in and day out!
