Mother's Day Watch Engraving Ideas | Best Gift For Mom
Sometimes, we find ourselves at a loss trying to figure out how to express thanks to the person responsible for our shot on this planet. How can we ever repay the debt? We can’t, but we can ensure the feelings are known by offering some heartfelt words on a gift that checks boxes in the departments of beauty and practicality: a personalized wooden watch.
With Mother’s Day on the horizon, we offer you a medley of ways to let your number-one woman know how exceptional she is.
- “Home is where my mom is”
Your mom inspires feelings of warmth and convalescence. She tended to the nest from which you sprung, filling it with food, clothes, music, and books. She is often the first person you go to when you need to regroup and recharge. Her mere presence, even in the next room, makes you feel like yourself again.
- “One-woman show”
For as long as you’ve known, your mother has always been someone who called all the shots in her own life. She has no problem telling it like it is, no problem staking a claim on what she wants. Multifaceted and agile, she seamlessly transitions from one situation to another. In other words, she’s one smooth operator.
- “Can I be you when I grow up?”
Whether you are 25 or 35 or 45, your mom remains aspirational and maybe even still shrouded in a bit of mystery. You still haven’t managed to crack her code or figure out how she does it all. She leaves you dumbfounded because of all she’s accomplished in her life. You can only hope you end up falling not too far from her tree.
- “Mom for President”
With her vast heart, sharp eye for detail, good business sense, and winning personality, your mother could feasibly run a country if she applied her near-foolproof system in a bid for the White House. Right?
- “My mom was right about everything”
We hate to admit it, but it’s often true. A mother does know best, for the most part. Before she was your mother, she was a woman who walked down a path not too different from the one you’re on now. Even as you are carving out your own place in the world, many old tried-and-true principles still apply.
- “My mom by chance, my best friend by choice”
Out of all the many moms in the world, she ended up being yours. Sometimes it feels like the stars aligned in your favor because of how well you both jive. Maybe it didn’t happen early on, like when you were still too busy going through the motions of teenage angst or a messy quarter life crisis. Today, however, the clouds have long parted and you see the light. She is by definition your best friend (and yes, she had a slight head start). She understands and supports your life choices, even if you’re sometimes wrong. Not every mom occupies this space (and there’s nothing wrong with that), but you know what you have is an extra special thing.
- “I got it from my mama”
Many of your best personal qualities and attributes can arguably be traced back to your mother. Whether it’s in your mean cooking skills, your artistic sense, your dance moves, your business acumen, or your crazy signature laugh, there’s no doubt much of it trickled down from your mother’s ocean.
- “You are the reason I believe in love”
A mother’s love is the rarest kind, and is living testament to its resilience. Whatever life she might have lived before was altered the minute you came into her world. Maybe it’s something chemical, or a switch that went off the first time she laid eyes on you, but you’ve never quite experienced another love that tops hers. Her unconditional devotion was always a sign of the world’s potential.
There are a smattering of ways to say "I love you" and lend an extra personal touch to an already solid gift. Feel free to crib a line or two from this list, if you're so inclined. If you've got some creative juices flowing, run away with it. Challenge: say it in 8 words or less. Browse through our collection of women's watches for the right match and the perfect canvas. Let's give it up for all the moms and mother figures in our lives!
