With this year’s Mother’s Day falling on Sunday, May 10, it’s time to start thinking about a gift for your mom. Pronto! For a woman who has everything, it can be tough to know what to buy to make her smile, so below; we’ve rounded up ideas to give you some food for thought…
Every woman loves jewelry, so consider treating your mom to something special to celebrate her on her special day. From a one-of-a-kind piece from your local jeweler to some stunning Claddagh rings direct from Ireland itself, there are so many options to consider. Indeed, the hardest part is deciding on a piece and ensuring it will fit; sneak into her dressing room to find something similar and you’ll be able to get the right size and fit for Mother’s Day.
In the United States alone, the personalized gift market is worth an eye-watering US$3.47 billion and climbing, demonstrating their immense popularity. If you’re struggling for a gift for mom, then you can’t go too far wrong with a piece of personalized wall art featuring her kids and grandchildren, or an apron for the kitchen that has her name and favorite ingredients embodied. Think outside of the box and consider buying local or from Etsy, rather than from mass-produced retailers who offer little in the way of personalized fonts, sizes, and styles.
According to a recent report, 76% of people prefer to purchase experiences over gifts, so why not give your mom the gift of a day out, rather than another piece of junk for her closet?
We’re thinking cooking classes, movie nights, staycations, painting classes, champagne lunches, spa days, concerts, and workout vouchers. Choose something you know she’ll love, and she’ll have a great time knowing that her children have made the effort to think of her.
Aside from the obvious subscription services like Netflix and Spotify, consider gifting your mom a subscription that she can enjoy throughout the year. Bear in mind that you’ll need to pay every month, rather than one-off, so these can be more expensive than sticking $50 in a Mother’s Day card, but it’s important to treat the women you love! From the seasonal FabFitFun box, packed with cosmetics and lifestyle essentials, to Winc, a subscription box offering quality boutique wines delivered from as little as $13 per bottle. Sounds delicious!
Finally, consider booking a meal at your mom’s favorite restaurant to show her just how important she is to you. Whether it’s a family affair and you invite your siblings, their partners and children, or you keep it more intimate, showing your mom your appreciation over a bottle of wine and a delicious three-course meal surely cannot be beaten? Better yet, design your own “voucher” and allow her to “cash-out” and redeem a meal on you whenever she fancies.
