Make Mother's Day Twice as Fun This Year {Mother's Day Guide 2019}

Celebrating mothers and motherhood has a long tradition around the world, dating back to the ancient Greeks and Romans. In the United States, credit for the holiday usually goes to one Anna Jarvis, a woman in West Virginia who surprisingly, was not a mother, nor married.

She first promoted her idea of an official holiday for Moms in 1908, and worked ceaselessly to establish such a day on a national scale. Her persistence paid off in 1914 when President Woodrow Wilson established the second Sunday in May as Mother’s Day.

Ever since, flowers and bonbons have been the prevailing gifts for Mom’s special day, but this year, why not double the fun by combining two gifts in one and matching them to her interests and personality.

To explain the concept, Sleepletics, the online retailer that is experiencing an outstanding reaction to its new Celliant Performance Sheets – determined by the FDA to be a general wellness product – suggests the following:


New Moms
What is most important to a new Mom? Her precious bundle of joy, of course! So while you want this day to be all about her, if you include the little one, Mom’s bound to be extra pleased.

Consider these Mommy and Me duets: A cuddly swaddling blanket for the newborn and a matching pashmina shawl for Mom. A T-shirt paired with a onesie. Hair bands and knit hats. Almost anything is available in both adult and baby sizes.

Online retailer Etsy among others has dozens of appropriate items as do most town’s street fairs that feature local artist’s handiwork.


Sporty Moms
Perhaps at times overwhelmed by the juggling act she calls “life,” this Mom might be letting her own exercise routine lapse. Show you understand with a series of her favorite workout classes and you take care of the tykes … or hire a babysitter. Either way, she’ll enjoy the classes more than ever, knowing all’s well on the home front. 

Tuck the reservation slip for the classes into your Mother’s Day card tied onto a lush potted plant or blooming topiary; both better than cut flowers, for with just a bit of care they’ll last for many years to come and remind Mom of this happy day.

And no worries if flowers are a health issue in your household; you can’t go wrong with a set of Celliant Performance Sheets. Clinically tested and, as noted, determined by the FDA to be a general wellness product, they help speed recovery from workouts and increase energy and stamina, something every Sporty Mom wants.


Literary Moms
If the Mom in your life loves to read, this will be the easiest Mother’s Day ever. E-readers come in a variety of sizes, at different price points and with diverse features. Buy a few books on the device you choose from her favorite author, a cherished subject or one on wonderful women, such as Women Who Shaped the World by Dawn D. Boyer, Ph.D.

Round out a literary-themed Mother’s Day by accompanying the e-reader with a box of her favorite tea or coffee and a mug that says, “We love you, Mom!”
Glam Moms
Be it the real stuff from the likes of Chanel and Tiffany,1920s-era Bakelite jewelry or handcrafted pieces made of everything from yarn to bone created in countries near and far, you can’t go wrong with some adornments for the Mom who likes dressing up.

Pair your gift with a coordinating activity such as drinks and dinner in an elegant restaurant, a ride in the country ending with a bed-and-breakfast overnight or a visit to a day spa that tends toward the holistic and natural.


All Moms                                                                             
No matter their age, style or interests, all Moms – and that includes Grandmas who also
deserve Mother’s Day recognition – love sliding into a bed dressed with luxurious, sateen-weave linens. Sleepletics.png

Sleepletic’s Celliant Performance Sheets go beyond such luxury by utilizing unique Celliant mineral-infused yarns that return infrared energy back to the body. This increases blood flow to the muscles and improves local circulation. In chalk, blue, tan and light grey, Celliant sheets will let Mom know she not only is well-loved, but well-cared for.

Boasting a 400-thread count and a subtle sheen, Celliant sheets are wrinkle-resistant and maintain their softness and durability wash after wash.  Celliant is permanent and will not wash out, with the health and wellness lasting the life of the product.

Celliant Performance Sheets are available in four colors: Chalk, Blue, Tan, and Light Grey and a full complement of sizes as well as two different pocket sizes, 12” or 15”, to ensure the best fit with the mattress. Celliant Performance Sheet Sets include one flat sheet, one fitted sheet, and two pillowcases.  They retail from $114.99. Celliant Pillowcases (set of two), retail from $49.99.

As for the twice-as-much-fun part of this gift, why not add a fluffy, terry robe that matches the linens? Bring them both festively wrapped along with breakfast on a tray Mother’s Day morning, and if the kid is old enough, have them carry the presents. What a good way to celebrate!
