Perfect Gift Ideas for Every Mom
It’s that time of year again! Mother’s Day is just around the corner and it’s time to start thinking about what to gift the special ladies in our lives. Considering my mom lives across the country from me, I tend to send her a generous bouquet of flowers on special occasions but this year I’m stepping things up a notch. Since I’ve been doing tons of research on gifts, I thought it would be great to share my findings and create a 2019 Mother’s Day gift guide.
1. Fragrance Lover
In my opinion there’s nothing more special than giving the gift of scent - especially when the bottle is wrapped in a beautiful box. Although fragrances are extremely personal, you definitely can’t go wrong with gifting one of the perfumes I’ve included below. My mom’s personal favourites are from Jo Malone and Hermes but you certainly can’t go wrong with Diptyque or a beautiful scent from Aerin.
For mom’s who love fitness, the gift options are endless. Have a look at which items could use an update and replace them with newer pieces. Currently I’m a big fan of MICHI because they have cool, modern pieces that have far more character than the average gym gear. Also, you definitely can’t go wrong with one of the cool crystal water bottles I included or a new gym bag from Stella McCartney’s Adidas collection.
Jewelry is one of the most incredible gifts to give. From necklaces to earrings and beautiful watches, there’s something for everyone and every budget. I suggest you take note of the jewelry your mom wears the most and pick something that meshes well with those pieces. At the end of the day you want your mom to open the box and say “WOW!” not “I like it, but…”.
Candles are foolproof. Similar to fragrances, they always come in pretty boxes and can be wrapped to perfection by your sales associate. Best of all, they’re effortless but incredibly special. I’ve included a few of my personal favourites below but never be afraid to ask a sales associate for help and suggestions based on your mom’s favourite scents.
