Personalized Gifts for Mother's Day

The idea of honoring one's mother on a special day dates all the way back to 1914, when President Woodrow Wilson declared the first national Mother's Day in the United States. From that point on, grateful sons and daughters have been searching for perfect Mother's Day gifts for that special woman who's nurtured and cared for them through good and bad.

While moms always enjoy flowers and even candy, creative gift giving involves finding presents that are a bit more unique. Personalized gifts for Mother's Day are always a best bet and they provide Mom with a little something that will remind her of you for years to come.

Shiny, sparkling personalized jewelry will make you Mom's favorite kid! Choose from such items as ID or charm bracelets, lockets, and necklaces, or perhaps small silver jewelry or trinket boxes for holding her special treasures. Each can be engraved with her name or initials, a pertinent date, and sometimes even a phrase or small verse that speaks especially to Mom.

Photo frames make great personalized gifts for Mother's Day. Such frames are ideal for photos featuring mom and the kids and can be personalized with the names of the children (or grandchildren) as well as the year or date of the gift. Other appropriate Mother's Day gifts include a personalized coffee mug especially for Mom or travel gear, such as an overnight bag, for the Mom on-the-go.
