All moms deserve recognition on Mother’s Day (and every day). Military moms get extra credit for their sacrifice, as they accept the stress, uncertainty, and changes associated with military life because they know it’s for a greater good. This Mother’s Day (or any other day), give the military mom in your life one of these gifts to show her how much she means to you.
1. Jewelry with Meaning
It’s nice to have bling, and it’s even nicer when the bling has special meaning. Online marketplace R. Riveter, featuring artisans of American-made products, donates a portion of its proceeds to fund the Military Spouse Entrepreneurship Award, which is granted to military spouses to help grow or start their own businesses. Any item from its collection of jewelry, handbags, and wallets would make the perfect gift.
2. A Flying Scarf
Flying Scarfs is an all-volunteer team of military veterans that employs widows in Afghanistan who otherwise wouldn’t be able to work outside the home to provide for their children. Not only does the company exist for a good cause, it sells gorgeous Pashmina and silk scarves.
3. Charm Her
Personalize a charm bracelet by adding silver engraved tags for children or a spouse. Customize with names, dates, or trinkets with special meaning. Every time she hears the charms clink, she’ll think of you.
4. Send a Care Package
Is mom the one on active duty? Send her a care package with lots of goodies. Fill it full of mom’s favorite things from home. What are her favorite snacks? What are her favorite scents? Get creative. A few ideas to get you started include:
- Chocolates and/or other snacks
- Good books
- Lotion and hair accessories
- Gift cards to shops that ship to APO/FPO addresses
- Handmade cards and/or love notes
- Photos of her family and friends
5. Home Accessories
From furniture to art, even the smallest touches can give a room a fresh new look. Give mom something to complement her home that’s easy to move when it’s time to relocate.
- A storage ottoman
- Framed photos
- Decorative mirrors
- A vase
- A fleece throw
