Mother’s Day is always a great time for the overworked and overstressed moms of the world. From guilting your partner into making you breakfast in bed to having one day where it’s socially acceptable to ask someone else to handle diaper duty, Mother’s Day is 24 hours of celebration and rejuvenation– especially for those of us who are new to the whole parenting game.
If your partner, friend or loved one is about to celebrate their first Mother’s Day where they are the centre of attention, you probably want to buy something special to commemorate the big day. Here is our handy guide on the best trends that all moms– new and otherwise– will adore (and just in time for you to get out and finish some last-minute gift shopping):
Jump On The Birthstone Trend
Right now, birthstones are among the most popular jewelry trends, and for good reason. Birthstone jewelry allows for a sense of personalization, and can reflect any woman’s unique flair and sense of style.
There are lots of potential ways that your Mother’s Day gift can align with this new trend that seems to be here to stay. Whether you want custom earrings, rings or necklaces, any birthstone will make a dazzling addition to even the most impressive jewelry collection.
A classic take on this trend is jewelry that features your recipient’s birthstone, whether it be January’s striking garnet or August’s understated peridot. However, if you want to add a special twist to this idea, you can always incorporate the birthstones of spouses and children, to create a stunning gift that represents the love that only a family can share.
Share A Personal Message With An Engraving
Imagine this: a beautiful sterling silver necklace, set apart from anything else in your spouse’s jewelry collection, because it has a custom pendant with a sweet and sincere engraved message. This is just one of the options available when you go for the always sentimental option of engravement.
Mother’s Day is always an important holiday, but it is even more so when you are a new mother. In fact, it is easy to feel stressed out and under-appreciated, and an engraved locket or bracelet can do so much more than just provide a meaningful gift. It can also serve as a valuable reminder that your partner is loved, appreciated and doing a great job, no matter how tough being a parent can be sometimes.
Switch Things Up A Bit
Necklaces and bracelets are often the most popular and straightforward options when shopping for a gift. However, feel free to get truly creative when it comes to buying a gift. Why go for the more traditional options, when custom earrings, anklets, brooches or even custom rings with engraving are all sure to impress.
Also feel free to break away from “traditional” styles that you believe a mother would love. The modern day mom has flair and courage when it comes to fashion, and are not looking for matronly or overly conservative styles. Do not worry about a style looking “too young” or too flashy– there’s no reason motherhood should mean an end to wearing fun, fresh jewelry!
Essentially, one of the best tips we have for Mother’s Day gift shopping is to be open to trying something a little bit different. After all, this Mother’s Day is simply the first of many– you will have tons of time to get everything the new mother in your life deserves.
