101 Stunning Christmas Gift Ideas for your Loving Mom
This entry was posted on November 2, 2017 by Shilpi Roy.
Andy Williams was right when he said “Its the most wonderful time of the year”. No one can deny that.
The lights, the snow, the gifts and what not. The atmosphere around you gets better on its own. The people around you become nicer, the friends, family, your colleagues, your classmates and what not.
So what is the reason behind the happiest time of the year ? The time of the year which automatically makes everything better. Let’s look into that.
What’s with Christmas and Presents ?
The tradition of going with presents to your loved ones actually has a historical evidence. This can be traced back to the days way back before Jesus was born. Several communities like the Nords used to have a Winter solistice festival in which the ritual of gifting was very prevalent.
Eventually, Christianity adopted this tradition too.The Bible cites the reason behind this tradition of that of Magi or the Three Wise Men. The Magi brought gifts of Frankincense, gold and myrrh to baby Jesus in the manger, to show their respect towards the baby Jesus. So now the Christians do the same by giving presents to their close ones.
The another modern day interpretation might be that since it’s Jesus’s birthday and any sorts of material presents cannot be presented to him, people tend to exchange gifts with each other
What to gift your Mom on Christmas ?
Some people are just born with great shopping techniques and mindset. They exactly know what to buy, where to buy it from and each and every minute detail about their shopping spree.
But there’s the another lot which is always confused and might end up buying a large quantity of the same item to gift each and every person they know of ( I’m not even kidding over here )
Although here comes the part where both of these parties might end up confused and clueless – buying a gift for their dear moms. Admit it, we’ve all been there where
