Skip the Flowers, Spend Time with Mom

May 8th, 2009, by

Before you drop a lot of cash on your mother this weekend, keep a few things in mind.

First, Mother’s Day began as an anti-war protest and was not intended to be the commercial holiday that it’s become.

Second, flower retailers are gearing up for you to send humongous bouquets to the mothers in your life, but moms really just want to spend time with their children.

And finally, if you insist on spending cash on mom during these tough economic times, at least check out some organic gift ideas, tips on buying green jewelry and a round-up of recession-friendly doo-dads for under $25.

Oh, and from all of us here at Young Voices, Happy Mother’s Day!
