7 Unique Mother’s Day Gifts for 2021

Mother’s Day is just around the corner. The holiday has its roots in the early 1900s, which was when Anna Reeves Jarvis had a memorial service to celebrate her late mother. Anna held the first Mother’s Day celebration in 1908 at a Methodist church in West Virginia. Jarvis, as well as other women, launched a letter-writing campaign in 1912, in the hopes of making Mother’s Day an actual holiday. President Woodrow Wilson signed a measure in 1914 that officially established the second Sunday in May as Mother’s Day.

Given that Mother’s Day is next Sunday, May 9, here are some ideas to help you out if you’re still looking for a gift:

1. Shower Steamers
