“I realised when you look at your mother, you are looking at the purest love you will ever know.”― Mitch Albom
On 14 May 2017, we celebrate the world’s 103rd Mother’s day!
It’s another chance for you to show your mother (your first teacher, your first friend and your closest confidante) how much she means to you, and just how grateful you are to her for all that she’s done for you.
Though nothing could ever truly measure up to her love for you, you can try!
And since your mother is unique, why should her gift be the same old card and flowers? Think out of the box - get her something as unique and beautiful as her, and if you can’t think of anything… take a look at our list of unique gifts that your mum will love and get inspired:
1. Fortune cookies
No we aren’t talking about the plain old fortune cookies, we’re talking about delicious and gorgeous chocolate dipped fortune cookies that you can personalise with a print of a photograph or image of meaning to you!
You can even get your cookies monogrammed in your mum’s initials and as if that wasn’t exciting enough, at Amazeology you can even personalise the messages inside the cookie and get your goodies delivered to your doorstep, fresh and just in time for Mother’s day!
And here are a few ideas why we love them:
Each cookie can be customised to contain a reason why you love your mum, or what makes her the best mother on planet Earth.
Alternatively, you could customise the cookies to carry your favorite memories with your mum!
2. Day at the Spa
She works tirelessly to make everything perfect for you, since the day you were born. Even today, her every breath is dedicated to you… why not give her a day off and treat her to some luxurious pampering at a Spa? Book her for an hour long massage and a mani-pedi session so that she can be treated like the queen she really is!
3. Dinner date with her friends
Help her to catch up with all her dear friends by planning a lunch date for her with her gang of girls. You would be required to coordinate with friends directly or you could always team up with their kids to give all the mum’s a pleasant surprise. Take it up a notch by booking the restaurant and pre ordering the lovely ladies a delicious meal.
4. Foot massage
If the nearest spa retreat is a town away or simply undo-able, a more prudent and in some cases a more appreciated gift is a portable electronic foot massager that anyone, but especially mum can use for an hour a day and feel thoroughly rejuvenated and fresh! You could assign an hour a day, as “mum’s own hour”, where all she’s required to do is, sit back, sip coffee and get her foot massaged!
5. A special spices kit
This one is for all the mother’s who simply loved cooking and should be recognized by Michelin in your view! Curate a box of unusual spices and herbs for her. You might need to do your homework for this one… take a note of her in-house inventory and what’s easily available at your local store, then try getting your hands on the unusual ingredients that aren’t so easily available. You could also give her a recipe with each of the different ingredients, and make a set.
6. A relaxing kit
Curate a complete relaxing kit with a soft bathrobe, bedroom slippers, lotions, a mug large enough to hold, just the amount of tea or coffee and a bar of her favorite chocolate. Since we love personalizing things; we’d suggest that you try getting the bathrobe and slipper monogrammed as well!
7. Tickets for a weekend getaway
Who doesn’t love taking a weekend off, retreating and relaxing with people they love? And if there’s one person who truly deserves this - it’s our mother! Give her tickets to weekend getaway or book her at a resort for the weekend. Though if you really want to please her, go with her.
