Mother’s Day is approaching us this coming weekend and many of us scramble last minute to find a suitable gift for mom. It became a National Holiday in the United States in 1914 as a day to honor mothers, mother-hood and maternal bonds. Most often we celebrate these recognitions with a gift along a similar feminine motif.
Mother’s Day has become one of the biggest days for flower and greeting card sales. But flowers only last about a week, and as for the woman that I honor as my mother, she deserves a much more lasting gift of appreciation. I know that my mom hardly ever asks for anything and when prompted “What would you like for Mother’s Day” she often replies with “Only to know that you are happy;” which I am, but I find to be a comp-out of a gift. I want to get her something that stays with her, that she can think of me every time she sees it (and it won’t be gone in a week). That’s when it dawned on me, Perfume - it’d be perfect.
Growing up I remember seeing my mother’s dressing table lined with perfume bottles with exotic scents and names I didn’t know how to pronounce. The bottles were each as different as the fragrances bottled inside and created a menagerie that I loved to play with. Despite that my mother still has quite a collection, I know that it is something that she loves, will see every day and will think of me every time she sees that bottle and smells that scent.
And so this Mother’s Day, before going out to purchase flowers and a card, think about a memory that exhibits what we are celebrating on this holiday and if you decide that it is perfume that expresses your feelings towards your mom too, you can take advantage of a great Buy 1 Get 1 50% OFF Sale at Perfumania both online and in-stores.
