Have you gotten caught off guard by an approaching holiday or special occasion, only to find yourself stumped about ideas for the best presents for mum? There are a few sneaky tricks to finding out the perfect gift – but you must be stealthy about it!
Keep a Keen Eye…
Watch out for opportunities to catch her in the act of subconsciously indicating what she wants! If your mum is flipping through the television and comments on a product featured in a commercial, take note whether the response was positive or negative! Do a tiny bit of detective work to see if she keeps catalogues from any particular store, or if she owns a subscription to a hobby magazine. Put the pieces together and see what could be a good fit!
Of course, there are the universal unique gift ideas that fit just about every mom. Although gift cards are not very creative, a pass for digital downloads like music or books can provide a lot more personalization. Nights out on the town (or even a home-cooked dinner) are a great way to make any friend or family member feel special – especially when the occasion includes some awesome picture-taking opportunities. Mother’s day is a super time to spend some real quality time together.
Presents for Mum and Beyond!
If your mom also happens to be a grandmother, never forget the gifts that speak for the entire family. A new laptop skin or organic tote can be personalized with a photo of her precious children and grandchildren. Don’t forget about spa-weekends, a bottle of vintage wine, or unforgettable jewelry – a grandmother fulfills many roles that deserve recognition.
When you pay sharp attention to details and pick up on subtle cues (favorite movies, favorite gardening programs, favorite colors or patterns) you can always figure out the perfect presents for mum!
