Mother’s Day is just around the corner and by now, most children are preparing to drop by to their local flower shop for a bouquet of flowers or a nice heartfelt card. But while they’ll make a nice display for the rest of the month of May, they’ll likely end up in the trash or a shoe box stashed in the closet once they’ve outlived the Mother’s Day celebrations. This year, honor mom with something beautiful and permanent like plaque she can proudly display at home or in her office.
A plaque is not likely something she’s received in her life except through work or school. But a plaque, especially from someone she loves as much as her kids could be an incredible gesture she will always cherish and of course, have the plaque to remember it by.
But once you’ve picked the plaque, it’s important to decide on the perfect message to include with it, which can be a challenge when you don’t know exactly what to say. There are plenty of ways to say ‘I love you’ but finding the right words to express yourself can be hard, so we’ve put together some suggestions that can help you get say just what you need to say.
1. Congratulate her on an achievement:
If she recently achieved something she’s proud of or worthy of notice, Mother’s Day could be the perfect time to give her a plaque that will encapsulate that achievement forever. While not every achievement yields a plaque from an employer or other institution, who’s to say it’s not worthy of one? If you think it’d make her day even more special, we say go for it.
2. World’s Best Mom:
There isn’t quite another way to say it that’s as impactful as a plaque. While there are cards and other small mementos that can say it, they are not quite worthy of displaying in her office at work or at home.
3. Display a certificate that means a lot to her:
It could be a marriage license, another pinnacle in her life that she’d love to display properly but she does not have the means to. While frames are a popular way to display diplomas and other certificates, there’s something about a plaque that adds some level of permanence to the achievement that there is just no equivalent for.
