Mother’s Day is so much more than simply a Hallmark holiday. It is a wonderful opportunity to celebrate and honor the women who raised us. The occasion gives us a day to show our appreciation for the lovely women who dried our tears, nurtured us, assuaged our fears, and cheered us on from one journey in life to the next. It’s been said that the most important part of any special occasion is the memories you make, so this year, why not treat Mom in a way that makes this Mother’s Day one she will always remember. This year, instead of just the usual token, make your gifts for Mom a unique expression of how much you love her. The following are a few of our suggestions to give Mom a day she’ll always cherish.
Amish Made Jewelry Boxes
An intricately designed Amish made jewelry box is a gorgeous gift for Mom. Imagine the smile on Mom’s face knowing that her precious loved ones took the time to choose the perfect wood, stain, hardware and design especially for her. This unique gift is as irreplaceable as the love you have for each other.
Whether you choose one that goes on a table top or dresser or opt for a larger one, giving mom a beautiful place where she can keep all of her best pieces safe and protected is priceless. Knowing that you picked out an Amish made jewelry box especially for her means even more.
Organize a Family Gathering
If there’s one thing moms love, it’s spending time with family. Her kids mean everything to her and once they’ve grown and started their own lives, it can be difficult to get together more than once or twice a year. This can be tough on a mother. After all, phone calls and text messages can only go so far. The embrace of a hug from her children and a face-to-face conversation mean the world. This year, why not surprise Mom by organizing a special family gathering? Bring the good times home and enjoy the special day around your Amish Craftsman Dining Room Table with a catered meal, or go to a favorite family restaurant so she can spend time with everyone without worrying about the cooking. She will be thrilled that everyone she loves is in one place!
Custom Photo Book
Even if your mother is on social media and sees the pictures you post on a regular basis, there’s nothing quite like a custom photo book. Having a book she can leave on the coffee table or nightstand where she can easily look through her favorite photos is an invaluable gift. And, since many of her friends may not be on social media, a custom photo book is a way for her to easily share photos and of course, brag about what “you’re up to these days.” Get creative and organize your custom photo books by special occasion, vacations, and other memorable moments.
Do you typically give Mom a card and gift certificate for Mother’s Day? Go a different route this year. Keepsake jewelry and framed art are much more than simple mementos, they are precious, personalized gifts that go above and beyond and truly show you care. Whether you choose to engrave a fingerprint for jewelry or create framed art with a handprint, your Mom will treasure the gift and think of you every single time.
Breakfast in Bed
Sure, it might seem a little clichéd, but you’d be hard pressed to find a Mom who doesn’t like to be pampered. Start Mother’s Day off right this year by treating her to a delicious and thoughtful breakfast in bed. You don’t have to go all out, even the simplest meal makes for a sweet gesture. One of our very own Amish builders sends a Cookbook out each year and shared one of their favorite breakfast recipes for Cinnamon Rolls. Enjoy!
Make Your Mother Feel Special
Whether it’s a personalized photo album, a batch of coconut buns, or a handcrafted gift from The Amish Craftsman, it’s important to try and tell our mothers how much they mean to us.
