5 Sentimental & Memorable Mother’s Day Gift Ideas

Posted: 8 May, 2024 Contributor: Pallavi Jha

Mother's Day is a day that we use as an opportunity to share the love and care we have for our mothers. This event is not about personal enjoyment but rather the appreciation of women and their hard work, which forms a valuable part of our lives.

We all know that for many, Mother's Day has been about the gifts we give to those special women in our lives. But there's something much more than that, especially since this day is more about the love we show to these amazing ladies. 

The Origin of Mother's Day

The origin of Mother's Day can be traced back to ancient times, when the goddesses were worshipped through festival celebrations. One in particular was for the Roman goddess Cybele, the most renowned goddess known as the Mother of the Gods. One of the features of the festivals was a procession, feasts, and gifts presented to her divinity. The Romans also had a spring festival called Hilaria in honour of the joy brought by the goddess Cybele.

Modern Mother's Day and the history behind its inception is credited to Anna Jarvis. She was inspired by her mother, Ann Reeves Jarvis, who had struggled greatly to develop as well as to ensure the health and safety of women and children throughout the 19th century.

When her mother passed away in 1905, it was her duty to carry the tribute of all mothers to her mother's memory. Finally, in the year 1915, Mother's Day was recognised as a holiday in the USA. After that, Mother's Day turned into a great global celebration, although the date and the traditions in each country are different from each other. On this day, we will be flying our flags and hugging our mothers as a sign of love for them and everything under the sun we associate with motherhood.

Memorable DIY Gift Ideas to Express Your Love

Showing your love and thanks to your mom on Mother's Day doesn't need to be a fancy or big gift for a mother. Sometimes, simple things can mean a lot. Here are five sweet, trending, memorable gift ideas you can do yourself to let your mom know how special she is:

  • Make a Yummy Meal: The great thing about preparing a meal from start to finish with love, is that you enjoy every bite of it. Recreate your mom's homemade recipes with fresh and nutritious food items. It might be a healthy lunch or a sweet dessert. Think about what will make a meal meaningful for her and spend time preparing it; this will be appreciated more than any store gift. If your schedule is too busy, why don't you treat her to a home-style organic meal or traditional, unadulterated organic sweets from OMKITCHEN?

  • Create a Card: It is so tricky to choose between store-bought greeting cards, so why not make a handcrafted one that is more meaningful? Bring out the artist in you and make a homemade card featuring colourful-shaped paper, markers, stickers, and glitter to make it special for her. Include things like sweet messages with or without quotes from your favourite songs or poems, and include pictures if you have any.

  • Write a Letter or Poem: In this digital world, where communication is full of texting and emails, a handwritten letter or poem means a lot. Spending time to put down your experiences and feelings with your mom on paper will be helpful. Tell her how much you adore her, and thank her for putting a smile on your face.
