Mother’s Day

Contributor post by Alicia from AliciasFindings

Mother’s Day celebrates motherhood and it is a time to appreciate mothers and mother figures. Many people give gifts, cards, flowers or other treats to their mother and mother figures, including grandmothers, great-grandmothers, stepmothers, and foster mothers.

At Christmas in July we want to know how you celebrate your mother (or how do people celebrate your day)?

Carola Bartz from CarolaBartz  says when my Mom was still alive I used to send her a card with a letter and I called her on Mother’s Day (she lived on a different continent than I do). I still miss our conversations which were always very long, and Mother’s Day is always a reminder what I have lost almost ten years ago. Even though she lived far away, we were very close.

Today I am the mother in the family and it really is my day. Usually we go somewhere I want to go to, and most years I just want to go up the coast to a little town called Mendocino. I love this place, and May is the perfect time to visit it. The drive back is always along California Highway 1 which is one of my favorite roads. This day always feels like a short vacation and the entire family loves it. Doing something together is the best part of it.

Mothers Day card

 

Richard and Tatiana from DesignsTheLimit states since opening our Etsy shop, we have made a number of Mother’s Day gifts for our mom including a cutting board, picture frame, and wine glasses. We asked her what was her favorite gift so far and her answer is her monogrammed stemless wine glasses. Toast to good health and give the perfect personalized gift to good use! At Design’s the Limit we take great pleasure in being a part of our customers celebrations for every special occasion, but Mother’s Day is truly close to our heart. Now what will we get for her this year? Get social @Designsthelimit Gift wrap and gift cards are available if you are shipping your order directly and custom order requests are always welcome.

Debbie Gilbert from NaturalBodyComfort said Mother’s Day for me is the perfect occasion to “pamper” the woman who over the years, has become a “friend” as well as my Mother.

A great way to pamper Mom is with a Hot/Cold Therapy Spa Set like this one. We have individual packs or sets available in many fabric choices and price range. All are offered with the bonus of FREE Shipping! This gift will be able to be used over and over again. Wrap your Mom in “Love”, and treat her with the gift of Relaxation and “Body Comfort.”

Annie from DesignedbyAnneliese discussed that I am a mother of 2 lovely young boys which I am very thankful for. In any spare time I absolutely love reading a good book! I have a pile of books in my room waiting for me to read.
I decided to make these lovely Japanese cherry blossom bookmarks which I think would make a lovely present for any mum who loves reading!

Lia Russo from Ghirlandiamo says in Italy we are used to celebrate Mother’s Day as in the most part of the world: giving her flowers or a gift and, if possible, having lunch and passing the day together.

In Ghirlandiamo’s shop there are a lot of items people could choose as gift for their mom, even looking for her preferred flowers on a wreath or other kind of home decor.

This spring l created a special wreath dedicated to Mother’s Day: this wicker heart covered by cheery and fresh daffodils.

Love to all moms in the world!

Mother’s Day – Gift Ideas

Contributor post by Megha of bytheartbug

Mother’s Day is just around the corner and here are some lovely gift ideas to celebrate this special occasion.

As well drawing my inspiration from the natural environment I also use recycled products to create some of my jewellery (because of my love of the environment and the need to minimize waste)

This necklace has been created using recycled buttons and beads and makes a great statement for those mums who love to care for the environment and make a fashion statement at the same time!

When I was little, I loved to play dress up with my Mother’s clothes. She had beautiful high heeled shoes and lots of great hats. This is my favorite card in my shop, because it reminds me of her.

Generally all necessary little things to sew something are collected, at worst, in a drawer or, in the best case, in an old cakes tin box.
For this reason I thought to create a nice basket specifically dedicated to sewing.

I hope my cheerful decorate basket will be a nice gift for a beloved mom!

Kristen Sargent from KestrelCollection says,

I made a Mother & Daughter matching bracelet set. This is something sweet that can connect the two, like a sophisticated friendship bracelet. It would make a great gift for mom from a daughter of any age.

Sandra crochet from Ankleknits says,

I knitted this delicate Baby Alpaca cowl scarf thinking of all of the women’s in my life: my mom, grandma and sisters. They all live to far from me. I imagined how they would wear this soft and cozy cowl everyday to work, to store, to beach in a cool day or just to be warm and stylish. This and other cowls in my store would be perfect gift for them!

This is a gift for the really offbeat mom who loves zombies!

Ideal for fans of American Horror Story and the Walking Dead, it’s a mini collage on canvas that can be displayed in small niches, on a desk, or a shelf. What’s special about the piece, if only to me, is that the woman on the piece is my mother when she was expecting my oldest brother way back in 1949. So it truly is honoring Mother’s Day.

I am so thankful that I can call my Mom my best friend. She is always there for me to love and support, she is the one person I want to share my joys and sorrows, and she stands by me through it all. This beautiful little card says just that with a simple greeting, “My Mother, My Friend” and is also a gift with 4 tea light candles to give a special Mom.

Everyone knows how many roles a mother is called upon to fill, and how many different hats she wears over the years of parenting. We wanted to honor these many responsibilities in a lighthearted way, and created this dictionary print as the perfect gift to show mom her many talents have not gone unnoticed!
