U.S. observances of Mother's Day date back to the early 20th century, when Anna Jarvis decided to honor the charitable and giving memory of her mother, Ann Reeves Jarvis, with a holiday. Mother's Day became a national holiday in 1914, and it has been celebrated on the second Sunday in May every year since.

Although Anna Jarvis wasn't happy with the commercialization of Mother's Day, it's become a longstanding tradition to give mom a thoughtful gift each year in May.
