Mother's Day was first celebrated in 1908, when Anna Jarvis held a memorial for her mother in Grafton, West Virginia. She then began a campaign to make "Mother's Day" a recognized holiday in the United States. Although she was successful in 1914, she was already disappointed with its commercialization by the 1920s.
Jarvis' holiday was adopted by other countries and it is now celebrated all over the world, most commonly in March or May. In this tradition, each person offers a gift, card, or remembrance toward their mothers, grandmothers, and/or maternal figure.
The most popular gift, at least in my house, are flowers and candy. But if you really want to wow mom (she always did love you best!), why not pick her up a totally awesome gift from Metrokane? For the mom who enjoys her cocktails (even if it's just on the weekends), there is the Rabbit Electric Cocktail Mixer ($20).For the mom who is more of a wine connoisseur, you can start with the Electric Rabbit Wine Opener ($50). And why not ask dad to pitch in and get the Rabbit Aerating Decanter System too? ($60).
Of course flowers and candy still work. Just remember to throw in the Rabbit Flipper Pourer/Stoppers ($8.00). They're cute little air-tight wine stoppers and drip-free pourers too!
