What to get for the mother who wants for nothing
Although we love our mothers dearly, it’s fair to say they are the hardest people to buy gifts for.
From Christmas, to birthdays, to Mother’s Day: it’s simply not an easy task. With fathers, you know you can draw from a pool of resources. How can you go wrong with a box of beer or any car or bike related product? Dad will always love what you get him as long as you appeal to his tastes. But with Mum, she’s so busy looking after the kids, the house and the family that we often lose sight of her hobbies, interests and anything else she holds dear to her. But if there’s one thing we know, it’s that once we can gain an idea of what she would like, the appreciation is great. So what do you get for the mother who has everything? Or the mother who appears to want for nothing yet never treats herself? It’s time to become an investigator. Whether you live at home with your mother, or you visit her with your own children, just by looking around and taking notice of things, it will soon become obvious what holds her interest. Does she have lots of same-themed items around the home? For example, bright coloured vases, dining sets and tablecloths? Does she buy the same magazine every week? Does she watch a lot of TV? Appeal to her interests, make her see you are taking interest. Buy her something bright to match what she has, get her a magazine subscription to her favourite magazine, buy her a TV programme subscription or a new TV if it’s within your budget. By seeing what she takes pleasure from, she will love the thought that has gone into the gift. But some mothers simply just don’t show what they love. You can never go wrong with a box of chocolates and a heartfelt card, a picture of the grandchildren or breakfast in bed. Everything is appreciated to show YOUR appreciation for HER.
