Now that you have grown up, it is about time you give her Mother’s Day gifts that is way beyond your coloured papers, drawings, hearts, and flowers from her garden.
A Little Bit of Background about Mother’s Day
The celebration of Mother’s Day is rooted in history, in the ancient festivals to celebrate the Home and Mother Goddesses. The Greeks honoured Rhea while the Romans held feasts for Cybele.
In the United States, Julia Ward Howe sparked the idea of Mother’s Day in 1872. In 1907, Anna Jarvis picked the idea up and continued celebrating the same to immortalise the memories of her late mother. The idea became popular. Today, the second Sunday of May is known as Mother’s Day. Around 122 million phone calls are made to greet mums on this day, and approximately $14 billion dollars are spent on flowers, cards, meals, jewelleries, and so much more every Mother’s Day.
This day to honour mothers only comes once every year. Show your mum how much you appreciate her with revolutionary, surprising, and one-of-a-kind Mother’s Day gifts from Gifts Australia.
