Good Gifts for Mom – Ideas for Mother’s Day 

Mothers day photoWhether you are looking for good mothers day gifts or birthday gifts – or indeed presents for any other celebratory occasions – it is important to find something just a little bit different and special that will make your mom feel that she is truly appreciated and loved.

The best Mothers Day gifts don’t have to be expensive.  Maybe you can remember when you were a child, proudly presenting your mom with a home-made card or a piece of craft work that you had lovingly created for her at school?  Perhaps you picked flowers for her from the garden or saved up your pocket money to buy her some of her favorite candies from the local store.  Perhaps you still intend to buy her some of those favorite sweet treats – but, now that you’re a grown up you want to give her more.

A piece of well chosen jewelry makes an ideal Mothers Day gift. Unlike flowers and candies that soon disappear and are forgotten, a carefully chosen piece of jewelry can be worn and treasured forever.  In particular, buying jewelry online can enable you to choose from a wide range of affordable rings, necklaces, bracelets, earrings … and at much cheaper prices than you will find at many high street stores.

So, if you are searching for ideas for Mothers Day gifts we’ve done some of the hard work for you. We’ve carefully selected some of our favorite pieces of jewelry that are perfect for moms – and even grandmothers – for Mother’s Day this year.

And when you have chosen something for your mom’s special day, how about making her a card?   – just like you used to, when you were young. 

No problem if your artwork hasn’t  improved much since then, simply get a blank Photo Insert Greeting Card, slip in a photo that you know she’ll adore and sign it with love.  Knowing that you have taken a little time in your hectic life to make something personally will be all the more precious to her.  And for that extra special touch, how about adding one of the lovely poems we’ve listed below.  

Happy Mother’s Day!

Mother’s Day Poems

What Is a Mother?

A mother is someone to shelter and guide us,
To love us, whatever we do,
With a warm understanding and infinite patience,
And wonderful gentleness, too.

How often a mother means swift reassurance
In soothing our small, childish fears,
How tenderly mothers watch over their children
And treasure them all through the years!

The heart of a mother is full of forgiveness
For any mistake, big or small,
And generous always in helping her family
Whose needs she has placed above all.

A mother can utter a word of compassion
And make all our cares fall away,
She can brighten a home with the sound of her laughter
And make life delightful and gay.

A mother possesses incredible wisdom
And wonderful insight and skill – 
In each human heart is that one special corner
Which only a mother can fill!

Katherine Nelson Davis

 

My Mother 

Who fed me from her gentle breast,
And hush’d me in her arms to rest,
And on my cheek sweet kisses prest?
My Mother. 

When sleep forsook my open eye,
Who was it sung sweet hushaby,
And rock’d me that I should not cry?
My Mother. 

Who sat and watch’d my infant head,
When sleeping on my cradle bed,
And tears of sweet affection shed?
My Mother. 

When pain and sickness made me cry,
Who gaz’d upon my heavy eye,
And wept, for fear that I should die?
My Mother. 

Who drest my doll in clothes so gay,
And taught me pretty how to play,
And minded all I had to say?
My Mother. 

Who ran to help me when I fell,
And would some pretty story tell,
Or kiss the place to make it well?
My Mother. 

Who taught my infant lips to pray,
And love God’s holy book and day,
And walk in wisdom’s pleasant way?
My Mother. 

Ann Taylor (1782-1866)

 

To My Mother  

You too, my mother, read my rhymes 
For love of unforgotten times, 
And you may chance to hear once more 
The little feet along the floor

Robert Louis Stevenson (1850 – 1894)

 

Sonnets are Full of Love

Sonnets are full of love, and this my tome
Has many sonnets: so here now shall be
One sonnet more, a love sonnet, from me
To her whose heart is my heart’s quiet home,
To my first Love, my Mother, on whose knee
I learnt love-lore that is not troublesome;
Whose service is my special dignity,
And she my loadstar while I go and come
And so because you love me, and because
I love you, Mother, I have woven a wreath
Of rhymes wherewith to crown your honored name:
In you not fourscore years can dim the flame
Of love, whose blessed glow transcends the laws
Of time and change and mortal life and death.

Christina Rossetti (from A Pageant and Other Poems 1881)

Mother O’ Mine 

If I were hanged on the highest hill, 

Mother o’ mine, O mother o’ mine

I know whose love would follow me still 

Mother o’ mine, O mother o’ mine 

If I were drowned in the deepest sea

Mother o’ mine, O mother o; mine 

I know whose tears would come down to me

Mother o’ mine, O mother o’ mine 

If I were damned of body and soul

I know whose prayers would make me whole 

Mother o’mine, O mother o’ mine 

Rudyard Kipling (1891)
