This year, Mother’s Day is on May 8th. What’s your best memory to date with your Mom? How are you celebrating her on this special day? I’m sharing some of my favorite memories with her and some gift ideas to give back to the most wonderful woman in our life. Also, there may or may not be a REEDS Jewelers giveaway I’m sharing below. So read on!
Mother’s Day Memories
I’ve shared so many memories with my Mom, but the most recent one was when I went home to the Philippines to visit her and my Dad a little over 2 years ago. It’s been years since I last went home after moving to the US. I wanted to surprise them, so I planned the whole thing in secrecy.
When I came home that night, she was shocked, but I knew she was so happy. I was laughing so hard ‘coz she couldn’t believe that I was there (laughing to contain my tears, lol). For the next couple of weeks, we would go out almost every day. I’d go with her wherever she wanted to go/needed to be. She was really happy her only child was home… excuse me as I get some tissue… okay, I’m back. Hopefully, I’ll get the chance to go home end of this year, if not, early next year. We are due some Mother-Daughter shopping/pampering/eating day! For now, daily skyping and sending her gifts will do.
So for Mother’s Day this year, I decided to send her something precious. And I thought I’d share with you these picks to help you choose Mother’s Day gifts too.
Mother’s Day Gift Ideas
One can never go wrong with jewelry. So glad REEDS Jewelers was able to help me find pieces that I know Mom (and I, hehe) will love. I asked Mom in advance what kind of jewelry was she looking for her next piece and she said she needed new yellow gold earrings. She likes diamond cut in yellow gold jewelry and is also into smaller hoop types. So diamond cut yellow gold hoop earrings it was. Bonus that it was also on sale!
It took hours to choose this one. There were a lot of great selections from REEDS website that included brands such as Pandora, Akoya, Roberta Z, TOUS, Black Hills and many others. In the end, this simple hoop with a diamond cut was the ultimate winner. It will go well with anything.
Next, I also got a Double Heart Infinity Pendant with round diamonds! It was a toss up between a cross and a heart necklace. But in the end, the two hearts were a better symbol of mother-daughter love! I originally got this for myself. But now, I’m planning to show it to her and if she loves it, I plan to give it to her too.
Now let me show you how it looks on.
