Imagine the scene- the day is fast approaching, you’ve been the busiest bee to have ever lived at work and those creative juices just aren’t flowing. YOU. HAVE. NO. IDEA. WHAT TO GET. Here’s our get out of jail free card to Mother’s Day shopping. These ideas are sure to get you a whole bunch of brownie points.
1. Get something that’ll last!
Avoid the chocolate and flowers this year. Get something less perishable, something that will withstand the withering passage of time and become a dear keepsake. This can’t be just anything, a random piece of jewellery won’t cut it, you need to choose something specific. Which leads on to the next point...
2. Get something personalised!
Nothing shows the effort gone in to a gift like getting something that could only be for her, and with the time it takes to create a personalised gift, there can be nothing last minute about it. But what to personalise, the possibilities are endless. Here's our advice-
3. Get something wearable!
Taste in clothes can be a pretty personal thing… but everybody would love an embroidered pair of snuggly slipper socks with their nick name on. Or a scarf with ‘keep warm Debs!’ (if her name is Debbie.. obviously). Every time mum wears it she can think of you, and what truly thoughtful offspring she’s raised.
4. Reference a recent conversation!
Has your mum mentioned a book she’s really enjoying recently, or perhaps a TV show that’s thoroughly engrossed her? Maybe she’s just started to hit the gym or.. indulging in more chocolate. Show her that you’re paying attention with this years gift.
5. Get something funny!
With so much mushiness going on around on the big day, a little humour will be a welcome relief. Not everything has to be an overblown display of affection. Maybe she really dislikes doing all the washing up, or regularly sets fire to dinner. Get something that’ll make her smile.
With all that being said, it'd be silly to not include a link to our mother's day collection
and here are some of our favourites from that collection.
