When I was growing up, we would usually dispense with Mothers Day gifts altogether. My mother’s birthday was only a few weeks before Mothers Day. Rather than getting her a birthday gift and then a Mothers Day gift, we would combine the two around her birthday. It wasn’t simply a matter of expedience or even economics, but rather a matter of the spirit of the holiday. You see, for my mom, the Mother’s Day card was all.

In our family, birthdays were a time for getting extravagant and elaborate presents. We would always surprise her with something spectacular – something that all of the kids had gone in on, and put a lot of planning into.
Mother’s Day was different, however. It was a much more low-key holiday. We would go out to my mom’s favorite restaurant for lunch, watch a movie, and spend the last of the afternoon together. The Mothers Day cards that we gave her in the evening were the high point.
I do not remember how old we were when we came up with the tradition, but I am sure my mother remembers. Whatever year it was, since then we have been making homemade Mothers Day cards. I Remember that when I was in elementary school, I used to make Mothers Day cards in class. As the years passed by, however, we had to make them more elaborate. The cute, artless greeting cards of childhood were passé.
Although we are not master artisans ourselves, she still appreciates our hand made work better than anything that she could get in the store. It’s fun for us too! It is always nice to have something to do with your hands, and when she gets the cards, the appreciation and joy definitely show on her face. I get now to do it with my children everyone has a go at making something and we decide the best to put on the Mothers day Card to give to my mum. The tradition carried on until now, No Ecard, no shop’s card make my mum more happy then a family home made mothers day card, she have them all as a collection for each year, hidden like a treasure inside her desk.
