Mother's Day

Mother’s Day is Sunday - don’t forget. Be creative. Sure flowers and a card are a nice gift, but give her something she’s not expecting this year.

The Bush Gallery Museum Store, the Nimitz Bookstore and the Admiral Nimitz Foundation Online Museum Store have some great ideas. Here are just a few:

For the patriotic mom – the first lady of your family.

Fine crystal and enamel set in gold tone jewelry lets your mom show her patriotism in style. Pictured above are only a few of the pieces available. There are more styles of pins and earrings available in-store and on-line.

Metal water bottles are all the rage right now. They’re reusable and lightweight. These aluminum water bottles come with two lids, one for sipping and one for stopping. They also come with a handy carabiner clip so you can attach it to your pack while enjoying the outdoors. Pair it with the Rosie the Riveter lunchbox and you’ve got a sharp and eco-friendly set for the working mom. Both items include a color image of the “We Can Do It!” poster and the lunchbox includes six other “Women on the Home Front” poster images from WWII.

Check out the website at for more ideas. If you’re in the Fredericksburg area, visit one of the stores and see what we’ve got to offer. Show your mom you care with something memorable this year.
