However this holiday, that we celebrate every second Sunday in May, is not just about celebrating her as a mother but it is also a day to honor who she is as a unique individual.
Many mothers, especially the ones with young children, do not get a lot of time to pamper themselves or get dressed up. Many do not have the time or maybe the extra money to purchase something that is just for themselves because they always put their children first. Take the time to really think about who your mother is and what represents her as a woman. Jewelry is always an excellent Mother’s Day gift because it is so expressive. People wear jewelry as a form of expression, it enables us to show the world who we are. There are a plethora of styles, gemstones and looks to choose from; so it is very easy to pick out the perfect gift. Gone are the days when you only had jewelry that had the words “Mom” or “Mother” emblazoned on it. Now, you can give her whatever her heart desires.
But first, a brief history of Mother’s Day. Have you ever wondered how this holiday got started? Well, here it goes: Mother’s Day was created by Anna Jarvis in 1907. On May 12, 1907, two years after her mother died, Anna held a memorial for her mother and then started a campaign to make Mother’s Day a national holiday. In 1914, The International Mother’s Day shrine was created in honor of Anna’s efforts and the terms “Mother’s Day” and “second Sunday in May” were trademarked. This holiday is celebrated worldwide, but many countries celebrate it in the manner as it evolved out of North America and Europe, heavily commercialized. According to the National Restaurant Association, Mother’s Day rakes in the highest revenues for dining out in the United States. The IBIS World, a business research publisher, found that Americans spend $68 million on greeting cards, $1.53 billion on pampering gifts and jewelry and $2.6 billion on flowers for Mother’s Day.
