Your mother (or mother figure) has always been there to consider your needs. At times, she may have sacrificed her favorite indulgences (or even needs of her own) to ensure you would have what you wanted or needed.
It is now time to give back and make sure she feels like a queen.
With Mother's Day just around the corner, now is the time to get set to treat your mom, surrogate mom, stepmother, grandma, aunt, or sister with style and grace.
In 1992, Dr. Gary Chapman identified five distinct "love languages" that anyone can use to express love for family and friends. Those love languages are:
- Quality Time
- Physical Touch
- Acts of Service
- Words of Affirmation
If you don’t know her top love language, but if you are generous in each category, you’re sure to make her feel loved and appreciated. Here are some examples for expressing your love in each love language.
You’ll be fluent in no time!
If you are lucky enough to have your mother around, you know how precious it is to spend quality time with her. Life is short and we all know there’s nothing that feels more rejuvenating than the love of family.
Take her out for a nice lunch (or make one of her favorites at home), go shopping together, or just share a cup of coffee while you reminisce about your lives together. Or, if you’d like, include a quality piece of jewelry as a physical representation of the quality time you love to spend with your mom.
One of our favorites is the Converge Chain. This 20” stainless steel chain has a unique clasp that makes switching pendants a snap. (Less time she spends fiddling with her jewelry in the morning!) Pair it with our Bobby Dazzler Pendant for a knockout combination she’s sure to treasure forever.
Sometimes, the simplest expressions of love are the most meaningful--a warm hug, a comforting arm around the shoulders. And even though you’re all grown up, we can guarantee you that a hug from you is probably all she needs to receive this Mother’s Day.
But if you’re reading this, you’re not content to stop there!
One of our favorite options is the Embrace bracelet. Every time she puts on this gorgeous moonstone and sterling silver piece will be like getting a hug from you!
Acts of Service
Think about your life growing up. Who was responsible for doing those necessary tasks around the house? If you’re like most people, it was your mom.
If you have a busy mom, consider taking some work off her hands. Run some errands for her, clean her house, mow her grass. These are all concrete ways to show that you care and want to make her life more comfortable.
And if you’d also like to watch her unwrap something, we have some great suggestions for the practical woman that’s always sacrificing for others.
Every woman should have a simple pair of earrings that will match any outfit. Our gold Cuteness Earrings, silver Desire Earrings, Exalt studs, and Tribute necklace are all simple, yet stunning additions to any jewelry collection.
Words of Affirmation
Raising children is the most difficult job there is, and your mom has probably spent more than a few sleepless nights praying that she was doing things right. So one of the best gifts you can give her is to express how grateful you are that she is your mom and tell her that you’re proud of her.
At LelaBela, we have some truly beautiful pieces that are perfect for communicating how you feel.
Give her our adjustable I Am Queen Ring and remind her that she is royalty in your eyes.
Is your mom a place of safety and comfort? Honor her with our Peaceful Necklace, reminiscent of a quiet evening under the stars. Does she bring light and spirit into your life? Our Spark Necklace will add that subtle touch of “bling” to any outfit.
The great thing about moms is that they don't want you spending too much money on them. But that doesn’t mean she should have to settle for tchotchkes this year. Luckily, LelaBela has plenty of beautiful choices that won’t break the bank.
Our accessory options range from $19.99 - $300, making it easy to find the perfect gift and stay within your budget.
If your mom has a more minimalist style, nothing could be better than our Straight Shooter bracelet. This adjustable bangle features Sterling silver and sparkling cubic zirconia in an endlessly wearable design.
Or perhaps earrings are more your mom's style. Our Overnight Earrings feature oxidized sterling silver roses that will coordinate just as well with a T-shirt and jeans as they will with a little black dress. And if she likes pearls, she will love our Shift Earrings. These beauties feature freshwater pearls at the end of a 1 ½" post of Sterling Silver.
And if you’re having a hard time choosing, you can never go wrong with a gift card!
Your mom has been there through thick and thin, giving you love, offering her support, and cheering you on every step of the way. She deserves to be pampered this Mother’s Day!
Luckily, LelaBela has just what you need to make your mom feel loved and appreciated.
We have jewelry and accessory options for all budgets and styles, and all orders are delivered directly to your front door, fully wrapped with fun LelaBela blue hearts of love.
Happy Mother's Day to all you beautiful, generous ladies who have given of yourself. Whether you have birthed, mentored, supported, loved, taught, healed, or guided another human being, your love is something to be admired. Thank you for making the world a better place, one hug at a time!
Several years ago, I wrote this poem for Mother's Day. Since you can lift others with your words, please share this with your mother, grandmother, or other maternal figures to let them know just how much they mean to you.
