The Perfect Mother’s Day GiftMarch 08, 2013
Show Mum how special she is this Mother’s Day by presenting her with the perfect gift – but what is that? Every mum is different and unique, and the perfect gift for one won’t be the perfect gift for all. Put some thought into what your Mum would really love to receive this Sunday. Perhaps one of the following fits the bill?
Jewellery is a popular choice as a gift for a special lady, and the more personal you can make your selection the better. A Pandora charm bracelet is ideal as it can be personalised with the bracelet charms of your choice, making a stunning gift that’s as individual as your mum.
Perfume is another strong contender – it’s very rare that any mum would turn her nose up at a bottle of her favourite scent. Be wary of getting her something new to try, however, as choice of perfume is a very personal thing. If you do want to take a risk, head to the perfume counter armed with the names of her current favourites, so the assistant can match up with similar scents.
It may be a bit of a cliché but flowers are always gratefully received. Forget tired looking bunches from the supermarket and show your mum what she means to you with a beautiful bouquet of her favourite blooms.
A luxury box of chocolates makes a good gift if you’re on a budget, as it’s rare that mums ever get to have anything just to themselves. Indulge her in a box of her favourite treats – and refuse all offers to share!
Some high-end make up can make mum feel glam. Or perhaps she’d like a luxurious skin or haircare set? Whatever you do, however, steer clear of the anti-wrinkle cream. No matter how helpful you think you are being, no woman is going to be over the moon with a gift that reminds them of their age.
Sometimes you can’t beat a bottle of bubbly, so if your mum likes a glass of the sparkly stuff, indulge her! Even better, run her a hot bubble bath to drink it in – in peace!
Perhaps your mum is into gadgets, gigs, baking, making – you know her better than anyone so think hard about finding a gift that she’ll really love, whatever that may be.
