Mother’s Day is approaching, and just like every other gift-giving time of year, some people prove impossible to buy for. Unlike Dave at the office, you can’t just skip out on giving your mum a present on mother’s day, though, and with the happiness of mother’s the world over, we have put together a list of mother’s day gift ideas to help you in your all-important quest of showing your mother that you love her.
Bath bombs might seem like a gift from the days of primary school, where you would buy your mother a five dollar batch of assorted soaps from a cheap gift store, but these days bath bombs have been stepped up a notch. Now there are more kinds of bath bombs than you can shake a stick at, and they’re all varying degrees of quality, but the more you want to spend, the better they get. You have options for things like Donut bath bombs, space bath bombs, and glitter bath bombs, all of which can help your mum relax into a bath and feel like a million bucks again.
Maybe your mum works from home a lot, and her desk is in the cold spare room down the hall.
Her hard-working attitude is an inspiration to you, and you’ve just got to show her how much it means to you that she works hard day-in and day-out, so what do you get her? You get her a heated desk. This is more of a functional present than a present for fun, but it provides some needed heat for your mum’s legs and feet while she tirelessly works on presentations and sales figures from home. Getting your mum a heated desk will show her you understand and appreciate all she does for you and for herself, and gives her a little comfort in the battlefield of home-office warfare.
Two Terabyte Flash Drive
Your mum is a bit of a tech-head.
She might not admit it, but she loves her computer and it’s functionality, whether that’s for work or for personal use, and she’s always short on USBs with decent storage, so instead of buying her a fifth 32gb USB stick, why not get her one that’s sure to last. Enter the two terabyte flash drive, which is everything your mum needs to get her work done, and transfer any number of files (just about) from point a to point b. Unusually large amount of storage for such a small USB stick, this flash drive is guaranteed to last a while before needing to be emptied out.
Water Filter Pitcher
Your mum understands and enjoys the benefits of drinking loads of water everyday, and encourages you to do the same as often as possible. Obviously, you’re not going to just leap headlong into drinking an extra three litres of water a day, that would be ridiculous, but you can support her dihydrogen monoxide habit by giving her a gift that helps clean and serve that delicious H20. A water filter pitcher is a great way to surprise your mum this Mother’s Day, as it shows that you understand how much she loves drinking water, and highlights your concern for the water quality in her area of your city.
Finally, as a fun-loving woman, your mother can always be counted on to send texts with emojis. Always a laughing, crying, or smiling emoji can be found punctuating her odd but affectionate texts, and you wouldn’t have it any other way. Show some appreciation for this oft-overlooked character trait by getting her a set of emoji coasters this Mother’s Day, and add some lively emotions to the dinner table with your choice of coaster representing how you feel that particular day.
Our mothers are important figures in our lives, and to those of us lucky enough to have mothers that care deeply for us and who we ourselves care deeply for, Mother’s Day is a chance to give back after all the hard work they’ve put in over the years of our life.
