These days, when we may still be apart from our families and loved ones, it’s imperative to celebrate those people in our lives who are the nearest and dearest to our hearts. We choose to celebrate Mother’s Day even more intensely then we have done before.
Although advertising might allude to the contrary, Mother’s Day has never been just a Hallmark moment. Sure, there are AT&T television commercials from the past that have made us cry while watching them — seeing a mother and daughter talk on the phone — but in the real world where so many have only had the opportunity to communicate with their moms and grandmothers via Zoom, WhatsApp or phone.
It is a time when honoring these amazing woman who have been in our corner, provided us with strength, nurturing and a whole lot of resolve feels more significant than ever.
These women who have shaped us with their love and understanding — not only mothers and grandmothers but sisters, daughters and aunts — all deserve a meaningful gift that reveals our appreciation of how they are so much a part of our life. This is jewelry designed to make them feel as special as they have made us feel every day.
Here are a few tips when choosing your perfect mother’s day gift:
- If you are close and can see each other, take a sneak peek into her jewelry box and see what she might be missing or how she might rejuvenate the jewelry she already owns.
- Go for the meaningful piece — the one that lets her know how you feel about her and what an influential force and strong role she has played in your life.
- If you’re far apart, pieces that you’ve seen her wear before and have been updated over time (such as a new pair of pearl earrings that are a small drop instead of a stud) might will show her you know her style and are thinking about her.
- Choose a gift that says you understand what she’s most passionate about, be it a hobby or a major occasion or significant event from your life that jewelry will represent.
Here are a few suggestions to help navigate the best gifts for that oh-so-special woman in your life.
