Birthstones & Birth Flowers – The Mother’s Day Gift Guide

We all know moms are wired to say that spending time together is the ultimate gift for them. That doesn’t mean she won’t appreciate semi-precious stones, pretty prints or intoxicating scents.

This goes for basically anyone! Who wouldn’t appreciate a thoughtful, meaningful gift? We exchange gifts to celebrate people, and as a token of our gratitude to them for being in our lives and sticking by our side in this journey. We value their presence and these feelings should be translated through the gifts we choose for them. No pressure, right!?

Mother’s Day is just around the corner and it’s the perfect occasion to surprise mom, a mommy best friend or yourself with a well thought-out present! Forget all the DIY’s and gift guides, we suggest that you stick to the classics – flowers and gems! Timeless jewellery for an endless bond of love, paired with a beautiful bouquet of flowers will make anyone’s day. Here’s how you can make it even more special.

Roses and gems

Flowers have been given as gifts since time immemorial. It is believed that the Roman Gods celebrated birthdays by decorating their altars with flowers, which were specific to each month. This led to the origin of birth month flowers.

Birthstones were believed to represent the beauty and positivity within us and strengthen our characters. Tying birthstones with birth flowers make a spectacular gift.
