Each year you wrestle with the same question: What do you get Mom? It would take a year list all the things she’s done for you, and that’s not even counting the things you were never aware of! Literally from day one, Mom has been giving to you. So what could you possibly give her?
Mother’s Day has its beginnings in rather dark times in our country. Julia Ward Howe, the writer of “The Battle Hymn of the Republic, wrote “The Mother’s Day Proclamation” in 1870. During the Civil War, she called upon mothers to come together and protest the “senselessness of sons killing the sons of other Mothers.” Howe’s hope was to have a day when Mothers would unite and celebrate peace and motherhood. It took until 1911 before all states in the U.S. would recognize Mother’s Day, and President Woodrow Wilson would make the proclamation of a national holiday official in 1914. Today, practically every country on the planet has an observation for Mom.
These days, we acknowledge Mother’s Day with breakfast in bed, red carnations, and jewels. Here are some great Mother’s Day ideas from us to your Mom:
Be sure to visit Sylvan’s on May 9th for the Monica Rich Kosann Locket Bar Event. We’ll have an area set up with crayons and pencils for kids to make a picture or write a message to Mom. Then, take a photo of it with your phone and it will be sized to fit into a locket!
Another jewelry brand to consider for that perfect gift for Mom is Roberto Coin. Known for timeless, handcrafted 18K gold pieces inspired by Italian jewelry artisans, each piece by Roberto Coin is a journey tapping into different cultures and multi-ethnic influences.
Whatever your Mom’s style, you’ll find many options for the perfect gift (or two!) at Sylvan’s Jewelers.
