The Best Gift for Mom this Mother’s Day

It’s that occasion once again where we show our mothers how much we love her and appreciate everything that she has done for us. We want to tell her how important she is in our life and that we are grateful that she’s there to support and guide us every step of our way. Now comes one of the hardest parts, what do you give to the most important woman in your life – your Mom? Well, came up with some tips on what gift to give this Mother’s Day:

• Give her what she wants
Does your mom like jewellery, perfume, shoes, bag, designer clothes? Actually, these are the usual things that ladies like. If you answered yes to any of the choices above, then simply give it to her. You are sure then that she’ll really like your present.

• Say it with flowers
Giving flowers symbolize so many things. Flowers are beautiful, colourful, precious and full of life. Giving mom flowers says the same things about her.

• Light her heart with candles
Since mothers are the light of our homes, it is truly fit to give her candles. It symbolizes that she is the light of your life that warms your heart.

• Bake her a cake
You don’t have to be a pastry chef to be able to bake a cake. There are so many guides and recipes out there, even simple ones that you can make on your own. Decorate it with flowers, sprinkles, colourful icing and don’t forget to put Happy Mother’s Day on it. There’s nothing more special than gifts done with love.

• Make her a scrapbook
Collate all those precious moments and put them in a scrapbook complete with special messages from you, your dad, your siblings and all those people who have a special place in your Mom’s heart.

• Digital picture frame
This is another way to present those special photos of you and Mom and your family. Pick all the best photos and upload them in a digital picture frame. Your mom will surely have a smile on her face reliving the special moments you’ve shared together.

• Massage and spa treatment
Absolutely one of the best gifts she’ll ever receive. With all the hard work she’s been doing, she only deserves to be treated like a queen. A day in the spa will take all the body aches and pains and invigorate her spirits. She’ll come out feeling alive, beautiful and refreshed and she’ll thank you for it.

• Books – current best sellers
If she’s a bookworm, giving her the current best seller seals the deal. There are two ways to do this. You can choose a title and buy her a hardbound one or buy credits instead to let her choose the books herself in or iBooks.

Whatever you decide to give to your mom, it’s always best to give it from the heart. Don’t forget to tell her how much you love her. Sometimes the 3 words, “I love you” is enough to make her feel happy and special.
