What makes a truly meaningful Mothers Day present?

Throughout the world, Mother’s Day is seen as an occasion to give a present to someone special in our lives – someone we truly (and instinctively) care about. It can be the event to gift something a bit more inspirational and meaningful than usual.

It is believed that the Sunday of mid-Lent (towards the end of March) was a day on which, in the past, offerings were made at the high altar of the ‘Mother-church’. Derived from this, began the tradition whereby sons and daughters made visits to their parents – and especially to see their mother, so it became known as “Mothering Sunday.” Indeed, for many years, this special Sunday was reserved so that children and young people living away from their parents could go home for the occasion, taking presents such a cake for their mother, and sharing a meal with their family. This day was particularly meaningful for apprentices, live-in farm-workers, and girls in service, and it was generally accepted that they had the right to have the day off.

In the UK, Mothering Sunday is on the second or third Sunday in March. But at least half of the world celebrates the event of Mother’s Day in May (usually the second Sunday). In France, the event is celebrated on the last Sunday in May. The entire extended family gathers around the dining table for dinner, and at the end of the meal a beautiful cake is presented to Maman.

A special gift of encouragement for a lady / woman or teenage girl

This pretty pair of sterling-silver chain earrings feature the famous scallop shell symbol of El Camino de Santiago - one of the greatest journeys in the world. They would make an ideal present for a lady setting off to walk the "Way of St. James" or for some other journey or event in their lives with challenges and goals.

The 1,000-year-old Way of St. James criss-crosses Western Europe, arriving at Santiago de Compostela in Northern Spain on the Atlantic coast. Some 200,000 people travel the Camino each year from all over the world: Some people walk, others travel by bike. Many travellers choose to do the Camino for personal, rather than any spiritual or religious reasons - taking time out from their busy, modern lives and perhaps finding inspiration along the way, whilst reflecting on their life in a supportive environment. Many carry with them a scallop shell like in these earrings. Everyone experiences the journey in a different way.

Wish your friends or loved-ones well on their new adventure by sending them this inspirational present. It is the ideal gift for any special event / occasion and for people as they travel through life and face its challenges.

Dimensions: These earrings measure approx 28mm in length with the little sterling-silver scallop shell hanging on a fine sterling-silver anchor chain with butterfly-style backing to keep the studs in place.

Whatever somebody’s journey - whether 'symbolic' (as in starting something new) or actually travelling (for example, on El Camino itself, on holiday, a business trip, a gap year, trekking, etc), many friends and loved-ones like to pass on a special gift to wish the recipient well on their adventure.
