The History of Mother’s Day

In the United States, Mother’s Day is always celebrated on the second Sunday in May. Mother’s Day is a holiday to honor mothers and is celebrated all around the world, although its modern form originated in the United States from a woman named Anna Jarvis of Philadelphia. 

Jarvis held a memorial service to honor mothers at her own late mother’s church in Grafton, West Virginia, on May 12, 1907. Within several years, almost every U.S. state was observing the holiday. President Woodrow Wilson made Mother’s Day a national holiday in 1914.

Although the holiday was originally started to simply honor mothers and grew to honor other women who were mother figures (like godmothers and aunts), it also soon expanded into sending cards and gifts. However, let it be noted that Jarvis disapproved of the commercialization of the holiday.

Of course, children are the ones who are typically expected to buy their moms a gift for Mother’s Day. But as a husband, should you buy your wife (the mother of your children) a gift, as well? The answer is yes — according to one survey, men tend to spend more on gifts for their wives than for their own mothers.

All in all, of those surveyed, 98 percent of people planned to buy gifts for their mothers, while 92 percent planned to buy a Mother’s Day gift for their wives, and 68 percent planned to give a gift to their mothers-in-law. If you are one of the many husbands purchasing a gift for your wife this holiday, consider getting her Mother’s Day jewelry that she can wear and enjoy for many years.

According to the same survey, the number one thing moms wanted to receive was “personalized gifts.”

When she wears her Mother’s Day ring, she can look down at her hand and think of you, your love, and your appreciation. The round shape of a ring also symbolizes infinity, which reflects the eternal bond between a mother and her child.

A sparkling ring with diamonds is a classic and beautiful choice, and if you choose a quality diamond, it will last her forever. For the mom who loves a feminine touch, consider giving her a delicately pink-hued morganite ring for a special Mother’s Day jewelry gift (bonus points if pink is her favorite color!).
