Mother’s Day Poems and Gifts

Mother’s Day comes once a year. Some think that if they buy their mother flowers and a card that they have fulfilled their obligation for the rest of the year. If we only comprehended a 10th of what our mothers did for us as children, and how they would literally die for us if needed, we would realize that one day is not sufficient. I personally love expressing myself with flowery and loving poems. I am sharing my favorite with you together with some great Mothers Day Gifts to go with it!

To My Dearest Mother

© Kirsten Rollander
My mother is a special part
Of all that’s cherished in my heart,
She is my pearl, my soul, my mate;
She is the one to make life great.
She is an angel without the wings,
Who makes life special with the littlest things,Whenever I’m in need of love,
She is there from the heavens above;
Whenever I’m in need of a shoulder,
There’s no one as devoted as my mother.Her presence and love have always been there,
Everything in her nature is to only care.
With every soft hug and kiss
The world seems more beautiful and blessed.I’m sorry for all the times I caused you pain,
But after these brief storms my love still remains.
I love you so much,
I will love you forever-
I wrote your name on my heart
And it will stay there forever, and ever…

A Poem For Mom

© Champagne S. Baker
You are the sunlight in my day,
You are the moon I see far away.
You are the tree I lean upon,
You are the one that makes troubles be gone.
You are the one who taught me life,
How not to fight, and what is right.
You are the words inside my song,
You are my love, my life, my mom.
You are the one who cares for me,
You are the eyes that help me see.
You are the one who knows me best,
When it’s time to have fun and time to rest.
You are the one who has helped me to dream,
You hear my heart and you hear my screams.
Afraid of life but looking for love,
I’m blessed for God sent you from above.
You are my friend, my heart, and my soul
You are the greatest friend I know.
You are the words inside my song,
You are my love, my life, my Mom.
Happy Mothers Day
“Happy Mother’s Day” means more
Than have a happy day.
Within those words lie lots of things
We never get to say.It means I love you first of all,
Then thanks for all you do.
It means you mean a lot to me,
And that I honor you.But most of all, I guess it means
That I am thinking of
Your happiness on this, your day,
With pleasure and with love.

Christmas Gift Guide and Holiday Shopping Tips

Get Expert Help This Holiday Season

No matter how much you love the holidays, sometimes you need a little help getting through them. The 2012 holiday gifting season is upon us. Our Gift Gurus are happy to be there for you, with free Guides offering suggestions and tips for gift giving, wrapping, online shopping, hosting and finding ways to stay within your budget.

Shopping Advice

Set a spending limit. This is vital unless you like the funny palpitations surprise bank statements or credit card bills tend to induce. No one is going to think any less of you for doing your shopping on a budget. If they do then you might want to question why exactly it is you include them on your list anyway.

Gift Ideas Under $50, Gift Ideas Between $50 and $100

Make a list. Like the head honcho of Christmas shopping himself, you should make a list and check it two or three times. Make sure each person you will give to is on the list. Be sure the items you choose are not above your spending limit. When you go out shopping, buy what is on the list and on the list only. One of the easiest ways overspend is through impulse purchases. If the item is not on your list, but happens to truly be perfect, bump another item from the list.

Gift for Her, Gifts For Him, Gifts For The Couple

Bargains are your secret friend. One tendency that needs to be rooted out is the feeling that you must spend a certain amount per gift. Where did that idea come from? It is silly. If you find a gorgeous cashmere sweater on sale for 50% off, there is no need to spend the amount you saved on supplemental gifts. All this does is absorb funds and create unnecessary additional shopping. The sweater is enough. Don’t feel guilty for not spending a certain amount; instead feel savvy for finding a smashing gift for a price that leaves a little something for a rainy day.

Start early. Christmas, and other gift giving occasions, occur on the same day every year. Why is that so many people are rushing frantically to the 24-hour Christmas Eve last chance sales? Unless you like the challenge and stress of doing your shopping with huge crowds of desperate and rabid shoppers, get it done early. The rationale that the sales are better if you wait just doesn’t make any sense. Why take the risk that you may not have the time or selection to find what you really need? If you start early enough you can bargain shop much more effectively than if you wait to zero hour when the need to get something, anything eclipses all other concerns.

Christmas Specials and Deals

Shop online. Avoid the crowds and stores altogether and shop in your bunny slippers in the comfort of your own home. A few things you will avoid by staying home: fighting for parking, lost crying children, sharp elbowed fellow shoppers or less than helpful store clerks. A few of the pros virtual storefronts have to offer: savings in gas, many online stores have free shipping offers, special web only sales and offers, and perhaps the biggest advantage of all shopping and shipping to distant relatives without going to the post office yourself. Don’t forget the list
