Mother’s Day is a celebration honouring mothers and celebrating motherhood, maternal bonds and the influence of mothers in society. Mother’s Day means different things to different people. It can be a day of celebrating with your immediate family or a day where extended family get together to celebrate all the moms at different generational levels. It can be a quiet celebration, a larger louder get together, a one on one, or if a long distance relationship is currently the circumstance then maybe a phone call or communication via the computer. (thank heavens for Skype and Face Time!)
For some, Mother’s Day means honouring someone whom they’ve had a maternal bond; maybe a foster mom, or a friend’s mom who has been extra special, or someone who has taken you under their wing and made life that much more enjoyable. And, for some, it is a day of remembering their mom and all the wonderful times they shared even though she is no longer with them.
Though sometimes a call, flowers, or a sweet cupcake and card; often there is a gift given to mom in association to Mother’s Day. We all know Mother’s Day isn’t about the gift or the amount of money involved but more the sentiment and well wishes expressed to the mother(s) whom you cherish. Sometimes distance and number of participants plays a factor in how a family will celebrate and subsequently make gift arrangements.
Considering a group gift is a great way of people coming together to share their feelings in a joint effort while getting mom something that she will love and appreciate. All it takes is one participant to begin the process and others usually truly appreciate being able to contribute towards the gift of choice. Eventastic is a great online platform that does way more than event planning and ticket sales. It also allows you to fill in a template with picture and details of a gift for any occasion and then by sending the link to those involved, they can then open the link and pay online towards the special gift. You can even be more creative by everyone contributing current and past photos with mom for simple enjoyment or to have made into an album on the website.
So whether a piece of jewellery, flowers, wine, day trip etc. Eventastic can help make your family’s gifting experience easier for Mother’s Day and any occasion. Happy Mother’s Day!
