“There is no love so lasting, so strong, so disinterested, so unselfish, so devoted as that first and purest of all loves, a mother's love”
No matter how much we hurt and irritate and don’t appreciate our mothers, they still love us! They accept us for who we are even though we aren’t necessarily the best people we could be. A mother is someone who would jump in a fire just to make sure you have what you need, will run a thousand miles just to get you what you want. Once our mothers are gone there is no shoulder left to cry on, no one to blame for our mistakes, no one to make us our favorite chocolate cake and no one there to ask how our day was.
And the only reward a mother wants at the end of the day is the simple words, I Love You. Along with the "I love you" what do can you give her to make this mother's day an extraordinary one? Here are five things she would love to get this year:
- A custom tea towel- Put an “ego boost” message on it for her and create a baguette bundle. Cut a loaf in half, then wrap in the towel. Tie a jam jar on top with a beautiful matching velvet ribbon. Tea towels can be customized on www.etsy.com
- Coloring book- If you think Mom is ready to take the adult coloring book trend to the next level, gift an instructional sketchbook that features drawings, complete with clear instructions for drawing all of her favorite flowers—tulips, daffodils, dahlias, and more. The book is called 20 ways to draw a tulip
- Copper French Press- For the mum who never starts her day without a freshly brewed cup of coffee, give an accessory that will make her mornings more special (and feel more bearable). Buy her a copper French press from Crate & Barrel
- Botanical Press- Preserve a selection of Mum’s homegrown blossoms with this professional-quality kit. You can purchase it on forestry-suppliers.com
- Rue Sophie Germain arrangement from Bliss- There isn’t one flower in it that doesn’t represent a strong and loving woman. We hydrangea because she is beautiful, garden roses because she is affectionate, orchids because her love is ever lasting and privet berries because we do get tough love from her sometimes.
