For most American families, Mother's Day is a special occasion to show Mom love and appreciation. The little things like making her a special breakfast or taking your Mom to lunch are great ways to spend some time with her on this special day. But if you want your Mother to remember the occasion, a physical gift is the way to go. One of the most personal - and most often worn - gifts is jewelry.
When Mom puts on her new piece of jewelry, she will think of Mother's Day ... and she'll think of you. It could be a ring ... maybe a Mother's ring with a birthstone for each child. Perhaps a necklace with hand stamped discs, each for a child in the family. It could be a charm bracelet with charms or birthstones with a similar meaning. Or maybe a pair of earrings, made with her favorite color beads! Jewelry is a very meaningful gift, and will help make the day a memorable one.
Here are some fabulous gift ideas from JET members. Remember, some of these items may require stamping, engraving or custom stone setting ... so please order early!
