The only love we can count on for a lifetime is on the love of our moms. They are the one person we were directly connected to even when still in the womb, which explains the special connection. Since Mother’s day is coming soon, you can spoil her with a unique gift to show your love and appreciation. This doesn’t mean that you need to try too hard or spend too much… Remember that spending an afternoon with her and a long hug is what she’d like the most, but here are some simple ideas that are sure to warm her heart.
Custom Family Portrait
Instead of giving her an ordinary printed family photo, you can opt for custom made hand-drawn portrait. You just need to find a skilled and professional artist who will be able to perfectly draw each member of your family. Depending on your personal taste, the portrait can either include colours or it could be drawn in black and white version. Except for the portrait itself, you can add some other details like hand-written calligraphy with a message of your choice.
Spoil you mom this Mother’s day with a gift that she’ll adore like a basket full of sweet goodies. Your mom deserves the best, so choosing one of the many fascinating mother’s day hampers would be more than appropriate. There are different types of mother’s day hampers which means you’ll be able to choose a unique sweet surprise for her.
A Simple Chocolate-Flower Basket
The size of the basket can vary and except for delicious chocolates, you can also add a scented candle and a bouquet of her favourite flowers. There really is no better way to surprise her and tell her how much she means to you. For the perfect finishing touch, you can choose a thoughtful Mother’s day card to accompany the beautiful hamper.
A Hamper with Ultimate Pamper
Another personal gift you can give to your lovely mum is the pampering she deserves – a hamper full of face and body care products. You can always go with some of the most popular brands or you can choose her favourite skincare products. Just make sure the products are appropriate for her skin and age. Shower gel, body lotion, facial oil, facial serum and lip balm should be the main things in the hamper. Adding a scented candle, a bath bomb, her favourite chocolates and a bottle of wine is also an option.
If your mom loves plants, herbs and everything related to gardening, you can surprise her with a garden basket. You can either create one on your own or order a ready made online. The basket can include her favourite seasonal flower, a fork, a hand towel, a plant pot, a fertilizer, a nice scented candle and of course chocolates.
If you want to make the gift more meaningful and personal, opt for a personalized birthstone necklace. Birthstones are a collection of gemstones that represent the twelve months and each has its unique qualities. It is believed that wearing a birthstone can have a positive impact on a person. So, besides her own birthstone, you can make a customized necklace that consists of the bright stones and first initials of you and your siblings as well.
Except for scented candles, you can choose to give your mom an aromatherapy diffuser that can give her the best of both worlds – amazing scent and a feeling of relaxation. Today’s aromatherapy diffusers are very appealing, with sleek and simple design and changing lights, thanks to the built-in LEDs. While she can choose from a range of essential oils, make sure you put in the basket at least one of her favourite ones.
You can opt for a more elegant version of a tote bag or one that is made of water-resistant fabric. Tote bags are compact and easy to carry, perfect for everyday use – for going shopping, going to the gym or going for a walk.
