Mothers only know how to give and they give without ever asking for anything in return. During these challenging times, mothers around the world are pulling round-the-clock shifts to make homes beautiful and comfortable places to live in. Thus, while other celebrations can be put on hold, the Coronavirus pandemic isn’t a reason strong enough to not celebrate the human who brought you in this world and the first human you ever met. A word of caution though, if you are planning to order a gift online, do not wait to do last-minute purchasing — even the biggest retailers and stores cannot guarantee delivery in these uncertain times.
To help you, we have compiled this list of a few thoughtful gift ideas for the upcoming Mother’s Day.
1. Mother’s Day Gift Basket
Gift baskets make excellent gifts. Baskets contain several different items and thus, your mother is bound to like at least a few of them. Toiletries, such as shampoos and lotions, scented candles, coffee, wine, chocolates, cookies, cakes, and other eatables are popular choices for gift baskets. Many online stores such as Jet Gift Baskets even allow buyers to customize their baskets and add items that they think the recipient will like or enjoy best. You can see their selection for mom here.
2. Terrarium Candles
If your mother loves plants and little things that beautify a home, a terrarium candle is a perfect gift for her. Terrarium candles are sweet-scented candles with a succulent sitting inside them. These candles come in different scents and feature a wide variety of plants. More importantly, if you do not want to order from outside, you can always make a terrarium candle at home — the process is really simple.
3. Fitness Tracker
Wearable fitness trackers have become quite a rage. Once clipped on a person’s wrist, they provide accurate information about the steps taken in a day, calorie intake, resting heart rate, sleep time, weight loss, etc. Some of the fitness trackers can even be connected to a phone, allowing users to respond to messages while working. Whether your mother is a fitness enthusiast or not, a fitness tracker will certainly teach her to take better care of herself. More importantly, fitness trackers are available in all budgets. There certainly is one that suits your budget and requirements, you just have to do some research.
It’s hard to find a woman who does not love jewelry. Irrespective of however many bracelets and necklaces they have, there will always be another one that they would want to add to their collection. This Mother’s Day, surprise your mother with a jewelry piece she has long coveted. If you do not know what’s on her list, surprise her with a personalized bracelet or pendant with her name on it.
5. Beauty Subscription Box
All that work around the house can leave a woman’s skin feeling dull and dry. It is no surprise that women enjoy looking pretty. However, they easily let go of her wishes and desires to make sure her family is giving the best of everything. A beauty subscription box could be your way of telling your mother you care about her desires as much as she cares about your needs. With a beauty box, she will be able to try all the new and good makeup products in the market and purchase the ones that suit her skin the best.
6. Photo Collage
At the heart of everything a mother does is the thought of her children. A mother’s love is selfless and thus, many mothers value things that appeal to their emotional side more than things that appeal to their materialistic side. If your mother is the kind who holds onto happy memories for good and bad days, a photo collage would make the perfect gift for her. It will also give you the chance to go back into the memory lane and pick out the most beautiful memories from your past.
If you have run out of ideas and are clueless about what to gift your mother this Mother’s day, know that you can never go wrong with flowers. Add a gift card and a heartfelt message to it and your mother will surely love the gift. Just make sure to tell her things that you feel but never say.
We often take those who love us the most for granted — let this not be the case for your mother. This Mother’s day, do not forget to show your love and appreciation through a gift that says you care. We hope this list will help you find the right gift for the woman who means so much to you.
