The best gift for Mother’s Day (celebrated on the second Sunday of May) is one that shows how grateful you are for her efforts and presence in your life. It can be cheap, expensive, whimsical, practical or anything in between. The most important thing is that she sees your appreciation of her in it. Here are a few Mother’s Day gift ideas that you are both going to like; They will hopefully help you think up even more great ideas.
1. Give her a special experience
The first thing that probably comes to mind when you think of a Mother’s Day gift is something physical like jewellery or a new designer dress. All those are good but you can give her something even more special and unique: This time round, try an experience.
What does she love doing but does not get to do often enough? If she always talks about going to the spa but never gets the time, why don’t you book an hour or two of luxury beauty therapy in Remuera? If she talks about visiting somewhere, gift her with a 2-week vacation she will never forget.
Science has shown that experiences make people happier than buying physical items. Even if it is something as simple as a picnic or a dinner at her favourite restaurant, it will still be special.
2. Kitchen specials
For those mothers who have a deep love for everything food and cooking, getting them some unique kitchen specials will make the day for her. If she loves exploring new recipes, get her some exotic spices she can experiment with. You can even save up for some time to get her a really expensive spice that she has always wanted.
Other ideas include a set of cutlery, a personalised chopping board, an exotic packet of tea or special mixing bowls.
3. Go tech
Not many people think of tech gifts when it comes to Mother’s Day but there are plenty of women who love everything technology. If she has a geeky side, think of some unique tech gifts. Good ideas include a Bluetooth headset, a smart home control system, a laptop upgrade or a smart kitchen measuring system.
Whether gadgets or games, the options are endless. Just learn more about what she loves and what she needs and then find out where you can get it.
4. Pamper her
You can also stay home and decide to pamper her the whole day long. Start with a sumptuous breakfast in bed and serve her favourite meal and drink. In the afternoon you can have a beauty therapist come and give her the whole beauty works – a foot bath, pedicure, manicure massage and many more options. For dinner go to a restaurant above the quality you would usually attend, or get a personal chef to cook her up a fancy meal and enjoy it all together. You can then put on her chosen film while she sips her favourite wine.
