Does the perfect gift exist? Everyone has to answer this question for themselves, because tastes and desires are very different. However, a dose of inspiration when it comes to gifts never hurts and that's why we show you our favorite favourites.
Vouchers sometimes seem too simple as a gift. Appearances are deceptive, however, because you can give your mother a very personal gift in this way, because you can respond to her wishes with a voucher. The voucher can still use visual support, and that's why the packaging is all the more important. For example, there are "explosion boxes" that look like plain cardboard boxes at first glance. In reality, however, they consist of different layers and can be personalized with images and text. This is what an "explosion box" might look like:
Would you like to give your mom a present for her birthday? Some birthdays turn into bigger events than others, such as the 50th birthday. Especially on such round holidays it should be a personal gift. Here are two ideas.
A simple but very personal gift idea are the story books "For Mom". The books have different questions and categories that can be filled out. There are several versions, we like this book "For Mama, a book about us" best, in which you write yourself. In it you will find categories such as "You always have to laugh about this" or "That's how you always took my fears away". There are also books that your mom can fill with memories herself.
Don't want to write yourself? Michelle Obama's bestselling autobiography "Becoming" (you can order the book here) tells the life story of the former First Lady of the USA. Obama becomes personal in it and inspires countless women around the world with her story. That's why it's a clear reading recommendation and a great gift for your mom.
There is often a larger celebration for a 50th birthday. All the relatives and friends get together to celebrate your mom on this special day. How about you make sure that your mother gets a nice memory of this day as a gift? All you need is a polaroid camera and a guest book. At the beginning of the celebration, you draw the guests' attention to the camera and ask everyone to take a picture of themselves, stick it in the album and leave a little greeting. The beautiful memory for your mom is ready.
Giving away a piece of jewelery for a birthday is one of the classics. That doesn't mean the gift is any less charming, though. We like this necklace with two hearts. This way your mother always carries a piece of you with her and knows that you are thinking of her.
Sometimes it happens that your mother's birthday is so soon that you have to rely on a last-minute gift. But that doesn't mean your mom won't like this spontaneous gift any less. For example, tea and nice accessories like a decorative pot are a great option as you can buy them everywhere.
We like this glass teapot that you could combine with exotic looking tea flowers. The beautiful flowers rise in hot water and provide a delicious taste. Through the transparent glass, your mum can watch the blossoming. Optionally, you could also give a warmer, so the tea stays warm for a long time.
Christmas is "the celebration of love" and that calls for a personal gift. How about you write your mother - depending on how old she is, for example 54 - little notes and tell her what you love about her and what you have learned from her for your life? On Christmas Eve, your mum can either read all the messages one after the other or look at a piece of paper over and over again throughout the year. All you need for this gift idea is a nice box in which to keep the messages.
With a wink, you could also give away warm socks, after all it's a cliché that children often get practical gifts like socks from their parents. You could turn the tables next Christmas. If we're honest, cozy socks made of wool are the real thing in winter anyway.
