Make Her Smile: Great Gift Ideas For Mother’s Day

Pin It

Mother’s day is a special time when you can give thanks to your mother by giving her flowers, chocolates and fine wine. You could buy her a special card and write a poem inside, or take her for a meal. There are so many ways to cherish a mother on her special day.

Be Generous With a Gift Card

Putting money in a card differs from buying a mother a gift card. This way she has to spend the voucher on herself, rather than selflessly on others. There are thousands of gift cards to choose from that cater toward clothing, perfume, hair care, beauty and furniture.

Make Her Smile with a Bunch of Flowers

Flowers are colourful and have a delicate fresh fragrance, but the quality of flowers is also evident. Visit a florist for a custom made flower display, or buy a houseplant. Both are lovely gifts on Mother’s day.

Fragrance the Home with a Scented Candle

Candles are romantic, fragrant, and relaxing. Do not buy the cheaper candles, which are made with paraffin, but opt for beeswax or soy wax candles, which will burn for up to 100 hours.

Encourage Her Green Fingers

Pot plants are a pretty addition to any home or garden. Alternatively, buy a medium sized houseplant. A hanging flower basket is always a pleasant gesture on her special day.

Beauty to Match Her Heart

Treating your mother to a beauty facial or day out at a spa is a great way to relax her. Each booking will vary amongst spa or salon. Alternatively, buy her a generous gift set containing bath salts, perfume, and skin softening moisturiser.

Treat Her to a Gourmet Food Basket

Make your own food basket containing wine, cheese, fruits and fresh bread, or buy a customised gift basket online or through a high street store.

Colourful Plush Furnishings to Bathe Her in Comfort

Curtains, bedding, throws, cushions, or a plush rug is a luxury gift to buy your mother on her special day. If she is into colour coordination then there is no ending to the colourful array of home furnishings on offer today through high street stores or online.

Dark Chocolate is Rich in Antioxidants and Releases Feel Good Phenylalanine

Phenylalanine is an amino acid that is responsible for the release of dopamine. This neurotransmitter affects pleasure, memory, reward and cognition whilst lower levels of dopamine are linked to Parkinson’s disease, addiction and depression. Dark chocolate is also higher in antioxidant rich cocoa and darker chocolate is naturally sweeter. Treat her to a box of her favourite posh chocolates.

You Can’t Go Wrong with Fragrance

Buy her a bottle of her favourite perfume, which is always a pleasant gift on Mother’s day. There are many gift sets with a matching fragrant soap and shower gel. Many online retailers offer great deals on fragrances, so be sure to shop around for the best deals, unless she is a lover of the classic Chanel No.5, which is sold in every high street perfume shop and chemist.

Fine Dining and Theatre

Why not take your mother for a meal, treat her to a three course meal with fine wine and then take her to the opera or theatre.

A Weekend Break

If you believe that your mother really deserves a treat, then why not buy her a weekend break in London, Dublin or anywhere in Europe. Two or three day’s abroad is a nice way to relax her and make her feel cherished for her selfless deeds.

Whether you opt for perfume, chocolates, a luxury meal, or a weekend break as your choice of gift on Mother’s day, she will be grateful and feel loved and respected, whatever the gift. This article has provided some basic gift ideas, but try to think out of a box if you are positive she will prefer something different.
