Shopping for a Mother’s Day Gift to say a very Special Message of “I Love You.”

Mother’s Day is the one holiday of the year for showing love to your own beloved mother. Jewelry says it all. Giving mom a piece of jewelry on Mother’s Day makes the day a pleasant memory all year long. When you see her face light up after opening the box you will easily understand what makes jewelry such a special gift.


Each time your mother wears the piece of jewelry you carefully selected for her so lovingly she will be reminded of your love and appreciation. Moms do a lot in life they are never recognized or awarded for doing. Mother’s Day is the perfect day to give your mom a special award of your appreciation of her. Nothing says it better than a beautiful piece of jewelry.


Finding jewelry is not difficult. There is usually a display of jewelry in just about every retail outlet and online is full of choices right at the click of a mouse and like magic delivered straight to your door. There will be special Mother’s Day jewelry displays online and in retail stores worldwide. There are jewelry choices suitable for each age group.


If you find the choices a bit overwhelming I might be able to help you out a little in this article. The first thing you are looking for is a piece of jewelry mom will treasure forever. Think for more than a few minutes about your mom’s personal style. Keep in mind the jewelry gift you give her for Mother’s Day must also be so special she will cherish it forever and every time she wears the piece she will be reminded of your love for her.


There are a few more things to consider. Does she wear a lot of jewelry or just a few pieces now and then? If the case is that your mom likes wearing jewelry often the choice may be a bit easier, and then maybe not. If she has a lot of jewelry already why will one more piece from you on Mother’s Day make a big difference? The difference will be because the jewelry gift you give her on Mother’s Day is from YOU and given to her on Mother’s Day as a special message of saying “I love you mom,” and I appreciate all you have done for me in my life.


Now….maybe you can add a piece to a collection you know she already has and likes to wear, but remember the piece you add will still be that special piece to her all year long each time she wears it just because YOU gave it to her on her special day.


Does she wear mostly rings, bracelets or necklaces? This is easy to determine. Just notice what she wears and you have your answer here. What if she is a mom who wears no jewelry at all, but you still want to give her a piece of jewelry because you are reading this article now and I am telling you a gift of jewelry on Mother’s Day is the perfect way of saying “I love you, mom.” If this is the case, then go for a simple pin with all the birthstones of her children in that pin, even if you are her only child, choose a pin with one big birthstone, the month you were born and you have solved it.


A watch is another good idea for moms that do not wear a lot of jewelry pieces. How about a bracelet watch, maybe a handmade bracelet watch with white glass pearls and sparkling gemstones in the colors of all her children’s birth months. Again, if you are her only child, just find a handmade bead artisan online or in your neighborhood and have one made uniquely different from any other one anywhere with beautiful white glass pearls and your birthstone.


How could she now forget this day? Every time she looks to see what time it is, there on her wrist is the handmade bracelet watch you gave her to remind her how much you love and appreciate her. She will probably bake you that special cake you liked so much as a kid next time she knows you are coming to visit!


You say, okay, the suggestions in this article have not helped my case. In that case, start with the question-answer game again. Does your mom like wearing pieces of elaborate traditional jewelry and follow the most current fashion jewelry trends? If you answered yes, this should be an easy gift as well as all you need to do is figure out the styles she is most likely to purchase for herself and add a piece to her collection, one that is the most current fashion trend now. Look online with keywords of “current fashion jewelry trend,” or since Mother’s Day is in May of each year, type in keywords like “spring or summer fashion jewelry trends” for the year in which you are in at the time you do the search.


Does your mom seem to like exclusive artistic designs? If so, then look for a piece to add to her jewelry collection along the lines of the artistic designs.


Ask yourself, does mom prefer gold or silver? Does she wear mostly gold pieces of jewelry or silver pieces of jewelry. This is a real easy question to answer. She may even be a woman who wears equally as much gold as silver pieces which widens your choices for her at this time. Take a sneak peek into her jewelry box and you will find out exactly what colors she has purchased before and now has in her collection.


Add to her collection of either gold or silver jewelry pieces or even get brave and add something she has never had before. Sometimes sons and daughters can open the vision of mom’s by introducing them to a piece of jewelry they would never purchase for themselves, then again, this is taking a big chance mom won’t like it and won’t ever wear it. A choice like this could also remind mom of your “rebellious” side. If this is a joke between you, might still be a good idea, but if this part of your personality was and still is a thorn in her side, better to not remind her of your rebellious nature on Mother’s Day. There are lots of variables to consider here and to keep in mind.


Do you want to give her a gift of jewelry she can wear everyday or a gift of jewelry she will wear for special occasions? This is another important question to find an answer before you begin shopping.


Once you have answered all your questions and have covered most of the bases, it is then time to go shopping. I think a three piece bead set of a necklace, bracelet and earrings to match would be a perfect Mother’s Day gift for the mother who likes beaded jewelry. I have a beautiful set here you might be interested in seeing: https://www.etsy.com/listing/203539076/carmilitas-three-piece-bead-sets?ref=shop_home_active_5. This beautiful three piece bead set features Turquoise 12 mm Czech Fire Polished Beads. I worked hours putting this set together. It is completely handmade.


Even just a simple bracelet of sparkling beads is a good choice. Here is a beautiful handmade bead bracelet you might like: https://www.etsy.com/listing/206072657/carmilitas-beaded-bracelet-nicola?ref=shop_home_active_2.


Every woman is different. You just need to figure out what your goals are before you make the purchase. What memories do you want to create with this gift? Even one simple pair of earrings like these https://www.etsy.com/listing/202939641/carmilitas-flower-in-bloom-rose-and?ref=shop_home_active_12 done in spring and summer colors and a flowers in bloom style could just be the absolute perfect gift for your mother on Mother’s Day.


Of course, the one statement and memory most people will be shooting for on Mother’s Day is a memory that says to your mom how much her daughter or son loves and appreciates her. Just always remember, you can say “I love you” to your mom best with a jewelry gift, and you have started the process of finding that perfect jewelry gift. Wrap it up really pretty too and don’t forget the loving Mother’s Day card!
