I was asked to participate in the #JaredTimelessMoments campaign, sponsored by Jared The Galleria Of Jewelry. Although I have been compensated, all opinions are my own.
Mother’s Day is just around the corner, and it’s about time to start thinking about gifts for the moms in your life!
There are so many stages in the life of a mom. Some moms are anxiously awaiting the arrival of a little one while others are helping their adult children plan weddings or helping out with the grandkids, and then there is everything in between.
Whether she’s expecting her first child, becoming a grandparent, or celebrating a new adoption, Mother’s Day is about setting aside a day to celebrate every milestone that moms experience and making the moms in our lives feel loved and cherished.
I remember when I was a newly expectant mom, and Mother’s Day rolled around when I was barely into my 2nd trimester. I received a Mother’s Day card from a sweet aunt, and it meant so much to me. It was sort of like it made it all real in a way.
When my kids were little, being a mom was all about trying to get a full night’s sleep and keeping energetic toddlers safe from harm. Then came the challenge of potty training and eventually the bittersweet first day of school. I had to learn to let go of the reins a little bit but still know when to pull rank and demand obedience.
I’ve heard motherhood described as having your heart go walking outside your body. I can so relate to that feeling these days as I’m parenting a tween and two teenagers. I’m preparing one for college, one for high school, and one for middle school, and while the future is exciting, it is bittersweet.
Mother’s Day can also be a lonely holiday for many. I always try to remember the women in my life who have lost a child or a mother at this time of year, as well as the women who want to be mothers but haven’t been blessed in that way as yet. A gesture of love and acknowledgement is sure to be appreciated.
No matter what stage of motherhood a woman is in, gifts are always a great way to show appreciation. I love giving gifts, but sometimes finding the perfect thing is a bit of a challenge, especially if you’re buying for someone who seems to have everything she needs.
Jared The Galleria Of Jewelry has a large selection of jewelry at a variety of price points, which makes them a great place to shop for the special moms on your gift list. Today we’re teaming up to share Mother’s Day gift giving ideas.
Jared sent me these gorgeous diamond earrings set in white gold to sample and see for myself the quality of their jewelry.
I think it’s safe to say, I’m smitten! These will certainly make a mom feel cherished and appreciated. I like how they’ve created a cluster of diamonds so it looks more like one big diamond but keeps the cost down.
I love diamond earrings because they make the most basic outfit seem special, and they go with everything. They’re a piece of jewelry you’ll have forever and can pass down to your children some day.
My daughters are always wanting to try on my jewelry, and I’ve promised them that some day they will be the lucky recipients of all of my keepsakes. It’s nice to receive gifts that I know will be loved and appreciated by my children.
Jared also has a wide selection of Pandora charms, watches, and beautiful pieces from their Brilliant Moments and Miracle Links collections that are perfect for showing love and appreciation to the special moms in your life. Here are some of my favorites.
