In 1865 William Ross Wallace penned this poem:
Blessings on the hand of a woman! Angels guard her strength and grace. In the cottage, palace, hovel! Oh, no matter where the place! Would that never storm assailed it? Rainbows ever gently curled for the hand that rocks the cradle. It is the hand that rules the world.
Indeed, the strength of a mother epitomizes all that is gentle yet strong; quiet yet determined; gracious yet resolute – and worthy of honor. Mothers give their all for 365 days a year, and in return, are given a single day – Mother’s Day.
So, if you are looking for a gift for that inalienable woman in your life, here are 13 suggestions. We have selected a mixture of items that depict so much of what she is; resilient, beautiful, productive, and ever giving.
Hummingbird Wind Chime
Delicate, light-radiating, constant, and colorful – day or night. Sound like mom? This wind chime is made of durable ABS material and fitted with solar-powered LED colored lights – red, yellow, green, orange, purple, red, and blue Hummingbirds.
Each of the six Hummingbirds, one of each color, hangs to chime in the wind, a combination of light and sound. The top disk is fitted with a solar panel that powers the LED lights in each of the chimes.
Self-dependent, colorful, light-emitting in the darkness, and reflective of the sun’s light, this lovely gift is lasting and beautiful. Share it with the one whose love for you has been ever constant and unconditional. She will love it.
Set of Six Ceramic Owl Pots
These cute small ceramic pots are a hoot. Hand-crafted and ideal for succulents, the six owls, will make a lovely addition to your mom’s windowsill.
Because they are hand-crafted, each one is unique – like her. Measuring 2 x 2 x 2-inches, the owl-shaped containers, with large eyes at the rim, gives an effect of a little own with the planted hairstyle. Really cute.
A family of six little owls, each with their own character, will be a constant reminder of a loving gift from her child. The potential is endless. Adding herbs, ornamental grasses, succulents, or a plant of her choice will further add to this character-filled family. Each little owl is unique and cute.
Your mom can display them all on the windowsill, spread them through the kitchen, rotate her favorite one on her desk. A practical gift that will keep on giving a variety of looks, textures, and yields.
Flowering Bromeliad Indoor Plant
Give a living bloom. The Bromeliad is a monocot with fibrous roots, a single flower plant from the grass- to family. The marvel of this plant is that after it has bloomed, it starts to fade. But then a whole cluster of them start sprouting from the fibrous roots to repeat the cycle.
A plant that gives color, bloom, and requires minimal attention. The new shoots can be split to replicate the plant – ever giving and reproductive.
To care for the plant, place it in either the east or west windows as bromeliads thrive in bright, indirect sunlight or partial shade.
Tell mom not to put it in direct sunlight as it will wither. She will need to water when the top inch of the soil is dry. The plant will grow to be about 10- to 12-inches high.
It comes in a ceramic pot with a grey bottom two-thirds and a white top third.

No gift you give will ever fully convey your gratitude you feel for your mother. An interesting fact about mothers: DNA linage tracking can only be done through the maternal line.
Mothers are the source of life, both at birth and into adulthood. Sadly, that reality often only fully dawns on us when they are no longer there to tell.
So, make an effort to give her something beautiful, alive, and life-enriching – because she more than deserves it.
