It’s that time of year again, the day we celebrate our most favorite person on Earth, the beautiful ladies who’ve carried us around for 9 months and then some! We realize how taunting it could be to think of the perfect gift and really sometimes you think: does the perfect gift really exist? We’re not here to promise you anything, you are biologically set up to have this feeling of anxiety each and every single year, but we hope to make this task a bit easier for you this year! Also you must remember, whatever it is you do, she is your number one fan and she will absolutely love it! But either way here are a few tips and suggestions for finding the perfect gift this Mother’s Day:
- Don’t take the easy way out!
We know how tempting it is to settle for something generic. As Mother’s Day approaches, each and every day you think of having to get that gift for your mum and yet you still haven’t, you might not even have any idea about what you’re going to be getting. The day comes and you end up getting a bouquet and a card. Well we guess it’s the thought that counts… The most important thing is that you do actually put the effort in, no matter what your gift or gesture turns out to be, let it be something you’ve actually thought about, it’ll show!
- Think of what she actually likes.
A lot of us can be guilty of this. The art of gift-giving really depends on the gift giver being someone who can think of what the other person likes and not just about themselves and what they find nice. It’s so easy to think of something as pretty or that you like and that surely the other person will like this gift simply because you like it. We’re sorry to break it to you but that is probably how the worst gifts come to life. What you have to do is think of what the receiver actually likes. And this is not just anyone, it’s your mum! Think of something she’s hinted at liking, a hobby she enjoys or something she enjoys that you can enrich with your gift! It will mean the world to her. Even if you miss, you should still think of what she likes, we’re sure you’ll come up with something!
- Your gift can be an experience!
Does your mum like home items? Glassware? We surely do. Is she the kind of person who takes joy in aestheticizing her home or does she not really care about this kind of thing? Would she prefer you taking her out for a nice lunch or dinner? Perhaps a spa voucher? Or is she too much of a germaphobe to send off to a spa? Perhaps get her nails done? Whatever it is, again, think of what she would like!
We love our moms, want to express our gratitude towards them on this day and make them feel special in any way possible! Just remember, a little effort goes a long way, she’s the lady who can’t wait to gush over you and whatever it is you do, she’s your number one fan!
