It’s that time of the year again, the time to celebrate your mothers unconditional love.   You can show your appreciation by choosing the perfect gift for their special day, something to commemorate motherhood. Only now, it’s less than week away. You might start to panic thinking you really don’t know what to get her this year. Have no fear, American Thrift Stores is here!

Whether your mom is the stay-at-home-type or the outdoorsy kind, we’ve got it all. There’s something for everyone at our stores. You don’t have to get your mother same-day flowers, which she will know were bought on Mother’s Day because she is a mother and mothers know everything.

Every mom is so different and special in her own way, there are several suggestions which might personalize your gift so it shows thoughtfulness and most importantly, appreciation of her on her day.

Flowers wilt away within a week, while fake flowers will remain a decoration in the house forever.

We have a wide selection of in-home decorations. As you can see, we even carry fake fruit bowls.  Each of our stores has different merchandise. Just as no two flowers are the exact same, our stores offer different assortment of gifts and treasures in each one. American Thrift Stores also receives merchandise every morning, including this beautiful piece below:

Is purple your mother’s favorite color? She will love this realistic purple flower bouquet. But she will love it even more once you personalize it! Remember, it’s the personal touch that makes thrift store finds into wonderful presents!

Wrap the basket around with a nice, colorful ribbon. Before you wrap it together, throw in some chocolates and a card. Your real handwriting and all the items combined just became your very own, handmade gift basket!

Another gift you almost never go wrong with is jewelry. There is a piece of jewelry at our stores for every style. Whether your mom prefers classic watches or dangly earrings, we have it all. Just check out these conservative pair of earrings:

And now this stunning, exuberant necklace:

Don’t miss out on our jewelry sales, which at times offer precious jewelry at 30% OFF! Especially for this upcoming Mother’s Day.

A painting is also a personable present, because it is a lovely addition to someone’s home. The paintings at our stores range from tropical beaches to modern art pieces with vibrant colors. Make sure you choose something that reflects your mother’s taste, even if it is just because it has her favorite colors. Or you can choose anything that has to do with her interests because it shows her that you listened. For example, this painting of a little village in Europe is a great idea if she often talks about how much she wants to visit one day. If this painting reminds you of her, then it makes for a thoughtful gift. The frames are also important to the piece, so even if you don’t know exactly which art piece she would love, maybe you know which frame would match her furniture. Typically, you want to choose a painting with a dark frame for dark furniture and lighter frame for the lighter tones of furniture pieces. Otherwise the pieces can easily clash if the colors are too dissimilar.

Shoes are both a practical and fashionable purchase. Everyone can always use one more pair of shoes. Not all shoes match every outfit, and this way you can further personalize your present for your mom. Is she a comfort-lover? Does she wear a new pair of heels every Saturday night? Or maybe gold is her favorite color. If so, the designer heels on your right might be the perfect pair. The thing about thrift stores is, we typically have a few pairs of anything “brand-name” at a time. So, hurry up and drop by to find the hidden treasures on our shelves before they’re gone!

All in all, Mother’s Day is a day to show your mother how much she means to you. Although, we can show her some love every day, we use Mother’s Day to go above and beyond. A day to appreciate what she has done for us. One day a year to surpass her routine expectations so that she knows we would be willing to do that for her if she needed it, when she needed it― any day, any time.
