(NewsUSA) – Mom. Just the mention of the word can spark memories of love, warmth and kindness. It’s why a day has been designated just for her, honoring all that she’s done.
Trying to decipher what to give “the woman who has everything,” however, can be a challenge.
Experts agree, saying there is a tremendous amount of pressure to find the perfect gift (I’m talking to you, Hallmark), when in reality, most just want to know that they’re cherished.
So, what says love to one of the — if not the most — important women in your life? Read on for some ideas on how to create a precious moment for mom on her special day.
Give the gift of time. Anyone can take mom out for a nice meal — the restaurant business counts on it. But a real treat might be to shoo her off for some alone time to her favorite book or clothing store (maybe with a gift card in hand) while you stay home and cook and clean for her. This way, she gets the best of both worlds — no chores for a day, and time to herself with a little pocket money to boot.
Write down some heartfelt words. Be it in poem, story or a letter, moms love the written word. For added panache, tuck this on a tray with a homemade breakfast (in bed, of course), a handpicked flower in a vase, and you can count on a few tears.
Pick the perfect pendant. Every woman loves jewelry, but it can be difficult finding that piece that embodies the amount of love you have for this lady called Mom. Which is why Galatea has created a hand-carved pearl that contains the first near field communication (NFC) in the industry. The Momento Pearl allows users to create a tailored voice message that can be played when the pearl is tapped against a compatible mobile device. Taking smart jewelry to a completely new level, the Momento Pearl can also store a variety of digital content including images, messages and web links — so even if you can’t be with Mom on her day, you can still send her a message of love or photo with a piece of jewelry that will last a lifetime.
“A person can ‘live’ with this pearl forever, as it holds the voice and memories of a loved one,” says inventor and Galatea founder Chi Huynh. “The real interest in the Momento Pearl lies in its ability to summon a voice, a memory and emotion,” adds Huynh, who plans on introducing more NFC-enabled jewelry to include gemstones and diamonds.
The new Galatea line includes earings, rings and pendants in 14k white or yellow gold. To learn more, visit www.galateausa.com.
