Newspapers, magazines, as well as television stations begin their promotions each year, as soon as Mother’s day is just few weeks. They offer different gifts as well as special offers and discounts. If you take a catalog from somewhere back in the 1960s, and then compare it with one that you have today, you’ll be amazed at the difference in how moms look. More bonuses?
While magazines and TV channels are aware that mothers look different today than they did when they were younger and yet, very few are aware the fact that mothers are actually different.
There are ads that show mothers scrubbing dishes or doing gardening. If it wasn’t bad enough to show that moms never leave a back yard or kitchen (when real moms work jobs and are among the largest and most engaged citizens of any society) one of the biggest problems is that in the past, magazines recommended that we buy flowers for our mothers, and today; magazines still tell that we should buy our mothers flowers!
Mothers in the present are employed in high-profile positions. Many are single mothers that are responsible for raising families of their own. They are coaches for soccer teams, run blood drives, and we often only present them with a bouquet of flowers after so many years. The moms need a present which shows appreciation for the many functions they take on. However, if you search at unique gift ideas for mothers day all you’ll find are things that simply cannot be used for daily use, and rather, are presented as original (or in other words insane) items for mothers. You can find anything including kitchen cabinet knobs, to feeders for hummingbirds! As any mother has time to redo a kitchen or even replenish the supply of food for birds!
A Mother’s Day gift should be something special that mothers can appreciate, rather than items they must care for. Gift baskets with fruits for Mother’s Day are a wonderful present as, unlike floral arrangements, they don’t require you to fill them with the water only to throw them away in a week’s time after. There is the option of eating fresh fruit instead. Fruit bouquets are also a great option for those who feel plain fruit doesn’t do enough to please mother. They can be made through cutting out fruit to create unique shape, then using pineapple and strawberry slices covered in chocolate to appear like flowers. The best gifts for your mom are fruit! Instead of giving your mom flowers, or trying to convince her that she’s returning to her old self, treat her to some special treats on Mother’s Day!
