A mother and daughter share a special, almost spiritual bond. There's something about this relationship that inspires and deeply touches the heart. Whether you're a mother giving to your daughter, or a daughter giving to your mother, choose a gift that conveys an affection that's often so deep, it's difficult to express.
Stars and Trees
Give your daughter the gift of inspiration. Plant a tree in her name in the land of your family ancestry; have a star "named" after your child; or have her name inscribed on a stone or brick at a church, school, hospital, sports arena or town square. If she is a woman of faith, give her a piece of religious jewellery with a personal inscription.
Gifts of jewellery are always appropriate for your mother or daughter. Buy her a piece of jewellery with a personal message engraved on it, such as a ring or a Mizpah necklace, a piece of jewellery with her birthstone or a symbol of faith or a bracelet with charms that represent your shared past, such as a vacation, hobby or profession.
Give your mother the gift of memories. Give her a photo display statue shaped like a family tree, an engraved photo frame of crystal or silver or a digital frame. Convert her old photos or videos to DVD; organise her old photos of the two of you into a digital album or commission an artist to create a sketch or painting of the two of you together.
Write your daughter a letter; tell her how you feel about her. Use specific examples to tell her how you felt when she was born or how proud you are of what she's accomplished. If you want to do more than write a single letter, make an album. Include your favourite photos or poems or meaningful souvenirs. If you tell your daughter everything that's in your heart, this will likely be the gift she'll cherish most.
