Mother of the Bride Gifts

Being the mother of the bride is the toughest responsibility at a wedding. One moment you are all excited about preparing for your daughter's wedding, the next you get all sentimental about the thought of giving away your little girl in marriage. I remember how my mother swayed between these two emotions at my wedding. So, if you are a bride you definitely want to express your gratitude towards the woman who brought you in this world. Even if you are someone from the groom's family, you can thank the mother of the bride for giving you the most precious piece of her life, her beloved daughter. Although, you can't thank her enough, you can certainly give her something as a token of your gratitude. Given below are some ideas for mother of the bride gifts.

Host a Tea Party
Host a surprise tea party for your mom and also invite the mothers of your bridesmaids. Arrange some entertainment activities or games and let the ladies have fun. Host the party a couple of weeks prior to the wedding. Since, the mother of the bride will be too busy with all the preparation going around, this little party will allow her to relax and let her hair down. At the end of the party, each one of you can narrate a funny or touching incidence about your mom. Thank the mothers by presenting them with spa coupons or shopping vouchers.

Plan an Activity Together
One truth about marriage is that your life never remains the same. Post marriage, you will rarely find time to do all those things you did with your mom during your growing years. So take this opportunity to recreate those magical moments. If you and your mom love gardening, buy a pack of spring bulbs and plant them together. Also know about other gardening gifts for mom. You may even take her out for dinner or spend a day shopping with her, buying her mother of the bride dresses and accessories. Your time and company is the best gift for mom, you can give.

One of the popular mother of the bride gifts for bridal shower is jewelry. A fine piece of jewelry can remain with your mother forever. It will remind her of you, whenever she wears it. Hence, invest in an elegant pearl necklace, a beaded bracelet or diamond earrings as gifts for your dear mother.
