Public service announcement – Mother’s Day is next Sunday. If your mother, grandmother, or the mother of your children (hopefully, that would be your wife) is a Cardinals fan, what better present to get her than something that reminds her of the team she loves? It lets her know you’ve been paying attention to her hobbies and interests, and all women love that (and I know this since I’m a wife and mother myself). I’ve made it easy for you – just click on the bolded and underlined words to go straight to the page of interest.
So what kinds of Cardinals items would a mother love to receive as a gift? I haven’t met a woman yet who doesn’t like jewelry. Jostens, the class rings and jewelry company, has designed a line of very nice jewelry to commemorate the Cardinals’ eleventh World Series win. There are rings, necklaces, and pins. I personally like the Women’s Championship Ring, the Eternity Pendant and the Championship Charm Bracelet. 🙂
Caveat emptor – if you’re going to order a ring, make sure you know her ring size. And if you’re going to order earrings, make sure her ears are pierced. If you don’t know either one of these, stick with a necklace or a pin. (Note to hubby and/or adult daughter: I have pierced ears and I wear a size 8 ring. Thank you.) Mom would also probably love a Cardinals watch. She will remember you and your thoughtfulness every time she looks at her watch. You can find watches and other Cardinals jewelry here.
Does your mother love flowers? If your mother or wife lives within 45 miles of St. Louis , you can bid for a package where Fredbird, the Cardinals’ mascot, delivers flowers to your mother along with 4 field box tickets to the game on Mother’s Day at Busch Stadium. It’s David Freese bobblehead day at the game on Mother’s Day as well, so she’ll get 3 gifts! Click here to bid, and don’t wait long – bidding ends on May 9.
Do you know your mother’s clothing sizes? There is some nice ladies’ Cardinals apparel on the Cardinals’ web site, including T-shirts, sweatshirts and jackets. And if your mother likes to accessorize, there are plenty of Cardinals accessories such as purses, tote bags, and sunglasses.
If you waited until the last minute (like the typical man) to purchase a present and you live in the St. Louis area, you can visit the Busch Stadium gift store or the Cardinals Clubhouse stores. They may not have the Jostens jewelry, but I’m sure the nice folks who work there can set you up with something nice. Or if your mom or wife enjoys reading, stop by your local bookstore and pick up a book about the Cardinals.
I hope I have been of assistance in shopping for your Mother’s Day gifts. Remember, these gift suggestions would be great Christmas gifts as well (with the exception of the Mother’s Day flower package, which wouldn’t be available at Christmas time).
Thanks for reading! See you next time!
