Put a Personal ---and Primitive---Touch on Mother’s Day!

Put a Personal ---and Primitive---Touch on Mother’s Day!

Put a personal touch on Mother’s Day and make an impression that lasts all year long!  Here are a few suggestions for making your gift extra-memorable---and warm Mom’s heart!

1. What Does YOUR Mother Say?!

What’s your Mom’s favorite saying?  “Don’t put that in your mouth---you don’t know where it’s been!”  or “You’ll always be my baby”?  Enclose a card reminding her of a story where she used your favorite saying and she’ll ‘flashback’ to that moment.

2. Coffee Lovers

If your mom enjoys quiet moments in her comfy chair with coffee each morning, give her a new mug or one of these wood signs to make her day get off to an even better start.  Pick up a bag of her favorite coffee and she will truly be touched.

3. Keep it Fresh

Green thumb or not you can give her this cute little mesh basket with burlap planters. It can be used for her favorite herbs, or as an organizer caddy.  Take the extra step and fill the baskets with bedding plants, herbs or even office supplies.

 4. Communicate All Year-Round

Write your Mother’s Day message on one of our chalkboards and make it the family message center all year round!  Attractive and sentimental!


5. Keep Mom Cozy and Warm

Wrap Mom in a cozy Cheston Patchwork Pattern quilt!  If she loves quilts (and who doesn’t?!), she will truly appreciate the warm color tones of burgundy and crème as well as the combination of plaids, stripes, vintage prints and striped ticking fabric.  Let Mom know that this Cheston Patchwork quilt will become a family heirloom----just like her!

6. The Love of Family Makes My Heart Smile

Simply said.  Set muffins or cookies atop this plate and carry it to your Mother’s Day celebration.  She’ll love the extra touch---and your sentiments.

 7. Soft and Cozy

Give her am extra throw pillow that she can add to her bedding, couch or front porch swing!   Greet her with a hug and then sit down for a nice chat as  you share memories of years gone by.

 8. Better Than Slippers!

When Mom’s feet hit the floor, they won’t be cold!  Also a great place for her favorite ‘woof’ or ‘meow’ to curl up at her feet.  Tell her this gift is much more imaginative than slippers!

 9. Give the Dining Room a Soft Glow

“So cute…love it” our customers tell us----and that’s exactly what Mom will say!  All you have to do is set our Burgundy Box Centerpiece on the dining room table with a card telling Mom how much you appreciate her.  The pillar candle in the middle gives off a soft glow; don’t forget to enclose three AAA batteries!

 10. Tell Her What Family Really Means

Mom will think of you every day when she sees this message:  “Family---Where Life Begins and Love Never Ends”.    Just say, “Mom, this says it all…” and hand her your gift.

 11. The Gift That Always Fits

“Go shopping on me, Mom!  Find something just for you!”  That’s what you write in her card when you enclose a Primitive Star Quilt Shop gift certificate ----and you know the gift will fit.

    This is the first year my mom is not with us, as she passed away on 2/18/16 after a 2 1/2 year battle with cancer. What I loved most about my mom was her faith and will to live. She was 79 when she was diagnosed with stage 4 Primary Paritineal cancer, she was determined from day one to fight it, she went thru surgery plus 2 1/2 years of continuous chemo. treatments, all while have drains on each side for her longs and towards then end going every 4 to 5 days to have her stomach drained. She never once complained and her faith in God never waivered .
    She always put her faith and family first, and made sure we were ok. Her love for us is what kept her fighting till the end, as she never wanted her or us to think what if, when she should have been enjoying her golden years. When ever one of us told her I love you she always responded with I love you most , as in every letter and card she put ILYTM , mom or Granny was her enclosed signature.

    “If your friends jumped off the Brooklyn Bridge, would you?” My sister and I always heard this, if we wanted to do something, and said everyone but us is allowed.

    My Mother worked 3 jobs to raise 6 kids by herself in the 1970’s. Mom’s day started at 4 am opening a restaurant for breakfast for 3 hours, then on to a factory job for 8 hours, and ended at home at 9pm when the last kid was fed, bathe, and put to bed. Her determination to survive against all odds has been a true inspiration to not only me, but to my brothers and sister as well.
