Mother’s Day Gift Ideas

Ways to Celebrate Mother's Day


We observe the celebration of Mother’s Day on the second Sunday of May. The celebration honours the mothers, motherhood, maternal bonds, and the contribution of motherhood to society.

Why should you celebrate Mother’s Day?

On this day, we express our love and gratitude for all the sacrifices, affection, and steadfast support the mothers in our lives have given us.

We all remember as kids the times when our mothers went above and beyond to show us how much they loved us. Maybe it was the time your mother stayed up late to help you finish your homework or the time she made your favourite meal just to cheer you up.

Or perhaps, it was the time when your wife or the mother of your kids stayed up all night with a sick child or the time she surprised you with a home-cooked meal after a long day at work or the time she took charge of a stressful situation and made things better. 

In this article, we will explore the significance of Mother’s Day, its history, and some unique ways to celebrate this special day with the important mother figures in our lives.

What is the History of Mother’s Day?

Created by Anna Jarvis in the early 1900s. In 1914, President Woodrow Wilson officially declared the second Sunday in May as Mother’s Day. It was soon celebrated in most parts of the world. However, Mother’s Day is not a public holiday. 

As much as we appreciate our mothers throughout the year, the second Sunday of May is conspicuously special because we get to say “Thank You” to our mothers in an extraordinary way. 

Ways to Celebrate Mother’s Day

Mother’s Day is an excellent opportunity to show our mothers how much we appreciate them. You would ask, ” What do most mothers want for Mother’s Day?” Here are some ways to celebrate this special day:

  1. Spend quality time with your mother and the mother of your kids: This could be as simple as having a meal together, going for a walk, or watching a movie. The most important thing is to spend time together and make memories.
  2. Give a thoughtful gift to your mother or the mother of your kids: A thoughtful gift can show your mother how much you care. The gifts could be stand-alone or bundled gift hampers. It can range from a personalized photo album, jewellery, or something that reflects her interests.
  3. Write a heartfelt letter: A heartfelt letter or message for Mother’s Day can be a powerful way to express your feelings and show your gratitude. Take the time to write a letter that expresses your love and appreciation.
