Hi Pretty People!
So Mother’s Day is just round the corner (May 13th, 2018). And this year I went ahead and planned gifts for my mom beforehand.
Each mama deserves some special love, pampering and recognition on this day for the wonderful person she is. And so it’s not good to be picking out last minute presents without giving any thought to what she might like. I am a big fan of personalized presents- handmade cards, letters or anything special that took some extra effort and time to prepare.
Although no amount of time, money, effort or gift can be compared to the love and affection we have for our moms, but giving her a small token of our love will definitely put a wide smile on her face. And that’s all what matters! 😍Sharing some of my gift ideas for this Mother’s Day-
💗 Bag & Wallet
No woman can have enough bags. 👛 👜 I guess that’s true!
I bought this blush pink handbag and a rose gold fancy wallet for mom from my favorite store JC Penney. I have been crushing over blush pink lately and thought to pass that to my mom as well ☺️They have such a beautiful selection! Surely, everyone can find one that suits their needs and taste. 💕 The sequin wallet is perfect when you are going out for a fancy party or date night!
💗 Personalized Candles
I love candles and I so want mommy to discover these blissful things! I got this personalized candle made at Yankee Candle. This is one of my absolute fav pictures from my henna ceremony(mehendi) at my wedding. I love how the photo adds so much more meaning to this gift. I made the caption say ‘I got it from my mumma’. I really think mom’s gonna enjoy this relaxing, delicious Cherry Bloosom fragrance. ✨
I went ahead and made one more for my mother in law, she is one of the most sweetest and loving person ever. I am so grateful to have her as my mom. This is one from my first post wedding Diwali celebrations last year. The fragrance is Early Spring Bloom, its truly serene.
Also, call it a fun fact or truly magical coincidence, both my mom and mom in law share the same first name “Seema“. I love this and so feel blessed to have these beautiful ladies in my life.
💗 Personalized Jewelry / Watches
Jewelry is a timeless piece that is passed on for generations in a family. Stunning personalized necklace, beautiful stud earrings or a bracelet can make wonderful gifts which your mom could wear daily and cherish. A watch is an all-time essential, so if she is looking for one, you can pick a classic watch that goes well with all outfits and surprise her. Engraved customized watches can make for a unique gift as well.🌟
💗 A gift basket
Prepare a gift hamper basket with all the things she loves. Be it her favorite shampoo, lipstick, lip balm, perfume, phone case, hair dryer, cookies/chocolates… and the list goes on. Mix and match all the goodies, wrap them up in a beautiful paper bag with ribbons and attach a tag. A little basket for her to pamper herself.
The next two ideas are experiences that can be gifted and be made memorable.
💗 Cook her favorite meal
Invite her over for dinner or lunch. Surprise her with her favorite breakfast in bed. Relish the meal and the lovely moments with her. Such an experience really warms the heart, and is truly incredible
💗 Take her out for shopping and brunch
Grab some fresh flowers, pick her up and spend a whole day shopping, watching a movie and eating at her favorite places. Enjoy and unwind.
So these were my ideas for Mother’s day presents. Hope I was of help to those pondering over questions like- ‘what to gift this year?’ and ‘what is it that she will really be able to make use of?’
Do share your Mother’s Day plans and the Gift Ideas you have in your mind for this year.🎁
