Struggling to come up with the perfect Christmas gift for mom? They deserve a nice big treat at the end of the year. She might love some new home accessories or clothing. Or how about taking her out for a day?
Home & Kitchen Accessories
Most moms spend a considerable amount of time in the home, looking after the house and its residents. Give a gift to thank her for all her efforts. She may well appreciate something that can help her with her daily chores, or brighten up the house.
It’s not just dads who love a clever gadget. There are so many intelligent kitchen aids available to buy nowadays, designed to make cooking much easier. How about getting mom a coffee machine, a waffle pan or a mixer? Some are designed to look so trendy, they’ll instantly brighten up the kitchen!
Alternatively, get her something for herself and no one else. This could be a personalised gift, for example, such as a mug with a print by you, a name-embroidered blanket to wrap up in when it gets chilly, or customised duvet and pillow covers with photos or a unique design.
Gifts for Working Mums
Working mums will be grateful for a little something that can help them keep things on track, from work appointments to when you have an important performance at school. How about a good, old-fashioned calendar? Depending on the size of her favourite handbag, choose a compact style or a big, bulky one to fit all her contacts and notes.
Nowadays, you can choose from a vast range of covers, from classic leather ones to abstract prints.
A Day Out
You could treat your mom to a change of scenery by taking her out somewhere for the day.
Keep up to date with what’s going on in your local area to see if there are any concerts or exhibitions that she might like to attend. Also, chat to friends and family about good places to go for lunch, cakes and coffee or dinner.
If you can convince someone to drive you, heading that little bit further afield could also be nice for a change. Perhaps there’s something going on in a town nearby?
To present your gift, design and create a “ticket” that entitles her to spend the day with you, pursuing whatever activity you’ve chosen.
Does your mom enjoy the occasional fashion splurge? Has she been eyeing something up at the local department store? If you know exactly what she’s after, your gift shopping couldn’t be made any easier.
Alternatively, think about something your mom’s in need of. Items that can be put to use straight away will always be appreciated.
Perhaps you’re all going on holiday in the near future and your mom could do with a new bathing suit or a floaty summer dress. Or have you noticed her gloves are falling apart? Buy a pair of luxurious leather gloves to replace them.
For a little something quirky with real practical value, think about buying her a pair of colourful women’s rain boots. These are a great gift for all types of moms, whether they spend most of their day working indoors or pottering around outside. From keeping her feet dry on the way to work, to ensuring she can join you on a muddy hike at the weekend, rain boots are a versatile gift that won’t go unappreciated.
