For me personally, a hand-made gift created with a Mother’s Day SVG (or a hand made Mother’s Day card), far outshines anything store bought and mass produced (unless of course it’s an awesome Cricut machine or some fun craft supplies).
All too often, the hard work and dedication our Mom’s and Grandma’s tirelessly put into making our lives special and fulfilled, get lost in the daily grind and are taken for granted.

Who Started Mother’s Day And Why
Mother’s Day UK
Honoring Mother’s and Motherhood has a long history and can be traced back as far as the Romans , and was a major tradition in Europe and the United and Ancient Greeks.
An early Christian festival known as Mothering Sunday was the most well known in Europe and the United Kingdom, and it originally related to people returning to their “Mother Church” on the fourth Sunday of Lent, for a special Sunday service.
It is still referred to as Mothering Sunday in the UK, however it is now Mother’s who are celebrated with flowers and other small gifts of appreciation.
Mother’s Day USA
In the United States, Mother’s Day was visioned in 1905 by a woman called Anna Jarvis, who wanted to honor her own Mother. The first celebration happened in 1907, in Grafton, West Virginia, when Anna Jarvis finally honored her mother with a memorial service that was held at the St Andrew’s Methodist Church in Grafton.
By 1911, due to Anna’s tireless campaigning, all US States recognized the holiday. It falls on the 2nd Sunday of may each year. And the rest, as they say, is history.
