Be it her birthday, anniversary, or Mother's Day, finding a gift for mom is both easy and difficult. You know what she likes and what she does not; you know what she has and what she does not. But from the so many things you always wanted to give her, making a choice becomes difficult. Allow us to help you choose the best way to make mom feel special on that special day of the year. Here you go.
Memories: A sketch/photograph of the two of you would make a beautiful gift for your mother. The time she treasures most is that spent with her child. Gather old photographs of your childhood days, pick those of your most cherished memories together; something like your mom holding you in her arms, you hugging her, or a photograph of the two of you on a family picnic or graduation ceremony. To go a different way, you could get a sketch of your mother or of the two of you, frame it, and gift it to her. It will let her relive fond memories. That's sure to bring tears of joy to her eyes.
Something Homemade: The recipe to put a smile on your mom's face is to cook for her. Yes, make something you have learned from her and serve her that. Bake her a cake (you could ice it with a message for her)! Surprise her by serving her breakfast in bed or make her favorite food for lunch. Make cupcakes or bake cookies and enjoy them together. Decorate them the way she would like. The display of your culinary skills and more importantly, the expression of doing something specially for her is sure to touch her heart.
Jewelry: An exquisite piece of jewelry is a perfect gift for mom. It could be a set of a necklace and earrings or just a nice pendant. You could choose from gold, silver, or diamonds, if she would like it that way. You may find jewelry sets meant specially for moms, such as pendants bearing messages about a mother-child love or those themed around a mother-daughter or mother-son relationship. That piece of antique jewelry she's been longing for or those diamond-studded earrings she's been saving up for since long, would make a thoughtful gift for her.
Something to Pamper Her: Buy her spa products. Pick massage oils, creams, moisturizers, shampoo, scented soaps, body sprays, and a perfume. You could add a manicure or pedicure kit and some body care products. You may choose to supplement these with some makeup essentials that she uses daily. Select products of the brands that she uses. You could make a gift basket out of these items. Better yet, add to this a spa voucher and give her a chance to pamper herself.
A Day Spent with Her: Perhaps the best gift a mother can get from her children is their time. Spend the whole day with her. No going out with friends, no appointments, no work, no phone calls; just be with her the whole day. Plan activities that you would enjoy doing together, engage in something she loves to do, do something she would want you to. Talk to her, make her talk, thank her for being the best mom in the world.
A personalized mug, clothes, a pair of shoes, a watch, a bag or purse that she would love to carry, a good book that she would enjoy reading, subscription to a gym, tickets to her favorite movie or a concert, or a trip with her friends are among the other options of thoughtful gifts for mom. What matters more than the gift is the thought behind it. Get what you think is right.
