LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA - (April 13, 2012) - Mother's Day, which falls this year on May 13 has been officially celebrated in America since 1914. It was then that Congress designated the second Sunday of each May to be celebrated in honor of mothers. Currently across the country there are 85.4 million mothers, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. In honoring them, many people may want to bypass the typical flower gifts and opt for something more unique.
"Sure, flowers are nice. But they don't last very long," explains Braden Richter, the chief executive officer of LuxeYard (www.LuxeYard.com), an online member site that offers discounts on home furnishings and more. "There are some unique gifts that people can buy for moms that will last longer and bring them even more joy."
LuxeYard offers a wide variety of items that make ideal Mother's Day gifts, including such unique choices as wicker candle holders to accent the patio or garden, decorative lamps for mom's home office, artistic photos for the wall, and a wide variety of ceramic vases in different shapes and sizes. There are also unique picture frames, furniture, and kitchenware, including a French-press coffee maker and stovetop espresso maker. For the mom who loves tea, they offer a clear teapot with a stainless steel infuser. In addition to the coffee makers, there is also a stainless-steel airtight coffee canister that makes a great gift.
"There are many good reasons to shop LuxeYard, and the affordable pricing is just one of them," added Richter. "We have over 425,000 members so far because, in addition to the low prices, we offer many unique items that make perfect gifts, whether for yourself or someone else."
