Mothers Day gift ideas assume significance when that special day is near. We tend to get all mushy and sentimental thinking about how much we owe to that one person who brought us into this world and gave her all in nurturing us. We can never really make it up to her; the debt is far too enormous, and she would not expect us to either. She would be only too happy and proud to have given birth to us and raised us to be the fine people that we are today. However, nothing would give us greater pleasure and joy than to bring a smile to that one person who was the center of our universe not so long ago.

On Mothers Day 2013, resolve to give your mother that distinctive gift that reminds her of you year-round. Now let’s see, what can we give that would truly make her smile? Most ideas like watches, perfumes, personalized photo frames, mugs, and vases have been given all too often over the years. Why not surprise her with a common, but unique gift like a classy umbrella? Nothing would please any woman more than something that brings out her innate grace and beauty. Think Audrey Hepburn at the races in the movie “My Fair Lady” and you will get the picture! Let your Mom know that you think she is a princess. She is sure to appreciate this gift more than all the Mothers Day gift ideas of the past!

Umbrellas are a delightful Mothers Day gift idea and the fact that they come in many shapes, sizes and colors and can be put to many uses, makes them exciting and fun. From hand crafted Italian umbrellas and UV protection umbrellas, to golf, folding and classic stick umbrellas-there is that perfect umbrella for every occasion.

When choosing an umbrella, it is important to remember that it will be in use for a long time, and therefore one should invest in a product of good quality. A quality umbrella can in fact last a lifetime (remembering YOU every time she uses it!). A good way of ensuring quality is by going for brands that come with a quality guarantee. With umbrellas making a comeback both as a fashion statement and a practical accessory that protects from the rain and dangerous UV rays from the sun, there choice as a gift for Mothers Day 2013 is an obvious choice.
