Don’t get your Mother a Plant, She Deserves More…

Mother’s Day is around the corner and if you’re like the rest of us, you are probably having a hard time trying to find that perfect gift for your mom. I mean, we all know her taste, but we still find it hard to shop for her. It could take days of planning and way too much effort in order to make sure that she likes it. However, there is no need to worry about any of this year. We’ve got you sorted.

So what makes for a great mother’s day gift? Is it the price tag? The thought behind it? Maybe it’s something she’s always wanted. Whatever your thought process might be, we promise you will definitely get something for her in the list we are about to share.

Kids can be, well. A lot. So for the 9 months, she carried you physically and for the 29 years, she carried you financially, how about getting your mum a well-curated selection of wines? You might not know what wine to get her but you definitely know her personality. That’s where this blog comes in handy. It gives you a detailed guide on what wine to buy & for which personality. Check it out!

That said, we are not saying that wine can ever measure up to the sacrifices mums have made for us, but if you have a strained budget Wine, Wine glasses and a Wine Decanter will make for a great gift….for now.

If your mum is fussy, like most of ours are (Sorry mums, we still love you) you can get her a gift voucher from her favorite store, spa, bookshop or even supermarket. A gift voucher is great because she gets to choose how and when she wants to claim her gift. All you have to do is put an amount on it. Splurge!

Years might have caught up with mummy dearest but she is still beautiful and we want her to remain that way for a long while. To make that happen, why not get her top-of-the-range beauty products like CeraVe? Start her off simple, with like 3 products. The CeraVe Daily Moisturising Lotion, the Skin Renewing Night Cream, and the Hydrating Facial Cleanser would make for a great start!

As we all know, most of our mums are huge fans of watching TV. Whether it’s that 6 pm Soap or the News, our mums stay watching television. So why not get her a huge TV? No seriously, why not get her that huge TV so that she can watch her shows in 4K and also flex on her Chama friends (lol)

If TVs are not her thing, you can get her a functional gift like a Washing Machine, replace that old Cooker or Fridge or maybe get her a surround system that will have her Sunday mornings sounding like she’s hosting a church in her home.

Whatever direction you decide to take this Mother’s Day, let your gifts come from your heart. And remember always, it’s the thought that counts!

Happy Mother’s day to all the moms out there and happy shopping to the rest of you!
