  • Mother's Day is celebrated on the second Sunday in May each year.

Roses are red, violets are blue, flowers are overrated, does Mom want crypto from you?

If you're struggling with what to get your mom for Mother's Day, a gift of cryptocurrency is an option.

Here's a look back at the historical returns of several cryptocurrencies on Mother's Day last year.

What Happened: The approval of Bitcoin ETFs by the SEC earlier this year has brought more attention to the cryptocurrency sector and led to rebounding prices.

This means that, if you bought you mom crypto for Mother's Day last year, she might be extra happy to see you this year.

Certainly, flowers and a card are always a thoughtful option for Mother’s Day and offer a more stable gift choice compared to the periods of high volatility often seen in the cryptocurrency market.

Mother's Day was designated an official holiday by President Woodrow Wilson in 1914 and is celebrated on the second Sunday of May. Last year, Mother's Day was celebrated on May 14, 2023. Here's a look at how an investment and gift in three leading cryptocurrencies at that time would be worth now.
