Crystallized Gifts for Mom
Motherhood is often called a thankless job. From diapers to public tantrums, sleepless nights working on school projects to first loves—our mothers are were there for all of the stages, good, bad and downright ugly, in our lives. That’s not a job that should ever be thankless. As the women who we can always rely on to be our shoulder to cry on, we should thank our mothers every day. Sometimes life, and our own self-involvement get in the way, and we forget to honor the life that gave us a life to complain about in the first place. That’s what mother’s day is all about. It’s for saying thank you, we love you, and sorry for all the times we forgot to say it. This Mother’s Day, let your mother know that she’s your rock, with the gift of a crystal. Just as there are many different kinds of crystals, there are many different kinds of mothers. But for every mom, there’s a crystal to match. And these gifts for mom are sure to impress.
The Spirit Guide Mom
For the mom who gave you your zest for nature, travel and an unquenchable desire to explore new places, search no further than Turquoise.

Commemorate the many journeys you and your mother have been on, and the many that have yet to come with a turquoise stone. A turquoise necklace to pack in her suitcase will bring her good luck on her travels and peace in her spiritual realm.

Your mom didn’t just teach you how to balance on a mat, she taught you how to bring zen and balance of mind into your life. It’s only appropriate that you give her this gift in return, with a crystal for mental and physical balance. A pair of Selenite Harmonizers will bring your mom harmony in all aspects of her life. In easing tumultuous moods, this crystal brings the kind of mental and emotional relief needed for true stability. Meditating with these will ground her soul through the harmonizing vibes it emits into the environment.

A rose quartz plate can make the perfect gift for your mom to set her perfume bottles on.
