Mother’s Day seems to have snuck up on me. I can’t believe it is less than a week away! I know The Mister always struggles with what to do for me on Mother’s Day. I can’t help but wonder then how many other fathers out there have a hard time celebrating the mother of their child(ren). Luckily, NOVICA has outlined some unique gift ideas and invited me to take a look for myself.[*]

NOVICA features incredibly talented artisans from around the world. In the time I spent browsing, I found so many unique gifts for mom – so it is no wonder that NOVICA sees a huge boost in orders around Mother’s Day!

Just a couple of the categories offered to help narrow down your search are: Jewelry Gifts for Mom or, more specifically, Necklace Gifts for Mom. Since I have plenty of jewelry, I was looking for something to decorate our home…

While browsing Sculpture Gifts for Mom from Bali and Java, I found a beautiful carved wood sculpture “Harmony” created by the talented Wayan Mustika. Wayan is a teacher in his village and works on wood carving in the evening. This sculpture took my breath away and its description is sweet…

Mother and father lean close, their bodies forming a heart as they kiss. Children follow their example in a beautiful tribute to family love. Wayan Mustika presents this lovely allegory in Balinese suar wood.

I cannot wait until it arrives! I will proudly display this piece or artwork and every time I look at this sculpture it will serve as a reminder to be grateful for the harmony The Mister and I have. After all, without it we wouldn’t have our little ones!
