Mother’s Day, May 11th, 2014

A bouquet of flowers or a photo album of the grandchildren is always nice for Mother’s Day but wouldn’t it be delightful if you honor your mother’s persona with a gift that says you cherish her uniqueness. A different kind of gift tells your Mom that you took more time than rushing about for flowers on that Sunday. The gift is one symbol of how very important she is in your life.

This is a day of recognition and thank you so why not say it in a fresh and special way. Here are suggestions in price categories to help with shopping. Have fun!
