5 Best Gifts Ideas for Mother’s Day

Mother’s Day is just around the corner! Have you figured out what gift to give your mum, aunt, or grandmother? If not yet, don’t worry we’ve got you covered!

Mom, mum, mummy, mother, motha, mommy, momma, ma, madre, mama, and others – all these refer to the real MVP in our lives… our mother. Hustling all day every day for the family, mothers – working or plain housewives – play a huge and tough role in our lives. It is said that motherhood is a strenuous 24-hour job – no pay, no days off. Hence, celebrating Mother’s Day is a perfect way to treat her. Although you can show your love to your mum every single day, Mother’s Day is a special day to honour and make her feel that she is highly appreciated.

What is the best gift for mothers?

There are different ways to showcase how much you love the #1 woman in your life, such as simple yet touching gestures, sweet words, and presents. Some will take over the mother’s chores even just for a day while others will draft a beautiful letter or note. However, the most popular way of showing appreciation to mothers is finding the best gift for Mother’s Day.

When you browse online, it is not surprising to come across a list of ideal gifts from affordable to expensive ones. It is recommended to get a present either she needs or something that is of her interest. With all these suggestions, it is easy to get drowned and confused about what to give her leading to not purchasing a thing a few weeks before the special day. You might find yourself scrambling trying to find something pretty soon. But the truth is, it takes a lot less to impress her because she will cherish whatever you give her as long as you put thought and effort into the gift – you are good!

To help you plan your Mother’s Day celebration, we have listed some unique gift ideas – not the usual stuff – that she will love so much.

Spa Day

There's no better way to show gratitude and love to your mum than a pampering experience at the spa. Treating your mum to a spa day makes a perfect gift for her to unwind, relax, and keep off her mind from all the daily hustles. This spa treat offers her the self-care and relaxation that she deserves.

With Mother’s Day coming up, several spas are offering different packages depending on the preference. You can easily find something that suits your mum – it doesn’t have to be the priciest one, but an experience that you know she will truly enjoy.

Special Getaway

With the borders gradually opening (as of writing), it is a perfect time to take your mum on a special getaway after being isolated at home due to the pandemic. Over the past 2 years, we all got bored and stressed about doing the same daily routine at our home – working, doing household chores, taking care of family, repeat.

Treat your mum (and yourself) to a special getaway or a staycation for a new memorable experience – not just something that comes in a wrapped box. Plan a long holiday overseas if time permits or book a cruise to her favourite destinations. In case there’s not enough time to go on a longer break, some best spots for a weekend getaway are accessible, even if the planning is last minute. There are a handful of domestic destinations that have all the things you and your mum need for that special trip, including beaches, spots to satisfy the gastronomic cravings, and a lot more.

This Mother’s Day, give your mum the gift of travel and an opportunity to experience a new place, together. Whether it’s a weekend getaway or a month-long vacation, this trip will be truly priceless.

Customised Timepiece

Fennel Strawberry Thief - August Berg

Time is the most valuable gift a man can give to someone. According to Benjamin Franklin "Lost time is never found again." It is indeed true that once you wasted time on trivial things, it is impossible to bring back that lost time.

Share the gift of time with your mum this Mother’s Day through a customised August Berg timepiece. Among the list of items, watches possess emotional attachment compared to other gift ideas – it’s common for many to get a watch to celebrate special occasions like Mother’s Day. August Berg features a range of luxurious yet affordable timepieces from its beautiful collections: Serenity, Reflexion, and Morris & Co. You can personalise the watch with an engraved special message or your mum’s name to make it extra unique. Giving your mum a watch is giving her a timeless gift that can always remind her of you whenever she looks at the time.

Favourite Meal

Treating your mum to a sumptuous meal might sound like an ordinary gift idea. Oftentimes, we take our mums to a restaurant and order her favourite food then that’s it. Nothing extra special right? What if you can make this experience something more unique and memorable?

In the usual situation, mum is the one in charge of cooking meals. This time, turn the table around – you do the cooking! You might not be able to cook as impressive as her, but if you can prepare her favourite food with your own hands, then that’ll be an extra special meal. You might learn new tips from her after tasting what you have cooked. Got a knack for preparing food? It’s time to impress your mum with your kitchen skills by preparing something she hasn’t tried but you know she will love.

Skincare Routine Products

Go on, spoil your mum with a box of skincare products such as sheet masks, face creams, toners, moisturisers, and anti-aging serum. You might have heard her freaking out and complaining about wrinkles and dry skin, so treat her to this special gift set. Most of the time, mums don’t have enough time to take care of themselves especially caring for the skin due to a hectic schedule. This skincare gift allows her to pamper her skin in the comfort of home rather than visiting a local beauty retailer.

Trust us, a skincare set is one of the most well-loved and universally appreciated gifts for women. However, it is essential to check if your mum has an allergic reaction to certain products.

Have you now decided what gift to give your mum this Mother’s Day? We hope the above list helped you plan out something special aside from the usual gift ideas. Whatever you choose, keep in mind that it’s the thought that always counts – not the luxurious brand or the expensive price.

Once you find the perfect gift for the superwoman in your life, we’d love to see it! Tag us in your posts @augustbergofficial and use #timefulness!
