Mother's day, since you were a little kid that you've learned the importance of making mum happy on this day. She may not need a lot and although we no longer do as traditionally was done, when families would reunite, get the day off for the visit and flowers were mandatory, flowers will always be a safe bet with most mums.
So why not give your mother a flower that will stand the test of time, or something even more spectacular, a bouquet!
You can choose a rose or a bouquet hand folded from books; perfect if she is a book worm! Or make this gift even more special to give by using the pages of her most favourite book, so when she looks at it, it takes her to another world.
Alternatively, you can choose your mother's favourite colours, and give her a bouquet that will brighten up the space and make her smile last longer than the life of a fresh bouquet.
Because she can't always carry her timeless rose or bouquet with her, however much she would love to, jewellery is always a gift to be given. Wish your mother good luck and hope with a silver origami crane necklace.
The crane – or tsuru – has appeared in Japanese art, literature and folklore over many centuries, and is regarded as a symbol of good fortune and a long life, and as a symbol of hope for peace. The necklace features an emerald Swarovski crystal, which you have the choice to change to her favourite colour if desired. Want to really surprise her? The matching silver crane earrings will not disappoint!
Whatever you choose to wish your mum Happy Mother's day with, nothing will be cherished more than the gift of time. Happy celebrating!
