Shopping for Mother’s Day gifts isn’t always easy.
Your mom deserves the best, and of course you want to deliver! That’s why we put together this little list of tips and tricks to help you find the perfect gift for mom. So take a deep breath, think happy thoughts, and check out our expert advice:
Know thy mom.
Not every mother wants a necklace that says “Mom”. Many of them do (which is why we have them), but maybe your mom is a little edgier. Socks that let the world know who’s boss or an oven mitt that tells it like it is could be more her style. If she’s the spiritual type, consider something like aromatherapy jewelry or even a deck of tarot cards. If she’s a crazy cat lady, she might appreciate some kitty swag. There’s a world of possibility!
Add a card!
Greeting cards are an awesome finishing touch for any gift, but they really shine on Mother’s Day. It is a sentimental holiday, after all. There’s nothing quite like a handwritten message from someone you love. If anyone wants to hear how much you love and appreciate them, it’s your mother. So, tell her!
The best thing about writing it down? She can keep that Mother’s Day card to look at whenever she wants to feel special! It’s the gift that keeps on giving.
Gift cards don’t have to be impersonal.
There’s a difference between a prepaid debit card and a gift card to her favorite shop! We’re sure your mom has great taste, so we’ll oh-so-casually mention our own gift cards. Take our advice about greeting cards and pair one with a gift card. That way, she can get whatever she wants!
Don’t overthink it.
Traditions don’t just come out of nowhere. There’s a reason people give women jewelry: most of them like it! All gifts are not created equal. A one-of-a-kind piece of local jewelry feels a whole lot different than something from a Big Box store’s seasonal section.
Remember: she has to love you.
We say this jokingly, but there is some truth to it. The best thing about moms is that they don’t mind giving you an “A” for effort. As long as you do your best to show you that you care, chances are she’ll wind up happy!
