Shopping for mother’s day doesn’t have to be stressful. Whether you’re getting something for your own mom or the mother of your beautiful children, here are some ideas to help you find the perfect gift:
The Classics: flowers, chocolate and breakfast in bed
You can add perfume, home decor and gift sets to this list. Less expensive jewellery, scented candles, and a day at the spa are also great classical mother’s day gifts. The list goes on and on with something for moms with every personality, at every stage of motherhood.
The Extravagant: a bucket list vacation
If you can afford it, splurge on something extra-special like a dream vacation that she hasn’t gotten around to taking. Let her see the Great Wall of China, or spend two weeks in Tuscany or the Bahamas. Make it a family affair with the entire brood, or keep it simple with just her and a companion (like you!).
Technology: gadgets and devices
In the twenty-first century, we have way more options. From a new smartwatch to the latest eReader, there’s no shortage of gadgets you can give mom this year. For the home, you can get smart appliances, or you can upgrade her HVAC and plumbing systems with a smart thermostat or a new water purification system.
Intellectual: Books and hobby items
If she likes nothing more than a good book and a hot cup of cocoa, give her a set of books from her favorite author. If she likes painting, get her some new canvases and the best brushes and paints. Then make a gift certificate for a free weekend to indulge in her pastime (Hint: the free weekend is the best part!). Or even better, you can register her to do a course or workshop so she gets to improve her skills while spending uninterrupted time doing it.
Handmade: Use Your Imagination
Remember when you were little and you’d leave love notes and drawings for your mom to find? Well, those were probably in her top ten favorite gifts and she probably still has a few today. Bring back some memories of your early years and add to her treasures. You can do a painting, a special love note or a grown-up version of hand print art. She might get teary-eyed but that’s because it’ll remind her of her favorite gift: you!
