Will Mom Like This for Her Mother's Day Gift?
By Liz Hekimian-Williams, Giftsprings.com
While you'll find out momentarily what your mom will not want as a Mother's Day gift, let's get right to the topic at hand and discover what your mom will likely enjoy as her Mother's Day gift. First, consider this. Will you be mainstream with your gift idea this time around and go for the "usual" card, flowers, or candy gift? Or, will you be a trendsetter and look for more unique gifts to delight, inspire, and honor this very special woman in your life, the one who is simply known as "mom" to you? Surely, you'd choose a unique gift for mom, if you only knew how to find it. Well, the secret is out and home decor gifts are in!
Why home decor gifts? Because as Mother's Day gifts, they are easily and successfully found simply by matching something that will go with your mother's unique likes, interests and personality! For instance, if she likes dolphins or the sea, she will delight in starting (or adding to) a dolphin decor collection. So, you could present her with a dolphin figurine, decorative dolphin themed plate or other nautical decor items. Or, if she enjoys music, instead of wondering what CD's she might already have, surprise her with a musical home decor gift! These can include novelty or theme type music boxes or wind chimes. Then you can even expand on this and thrill her with a new novelty musical home decor gift each year for Mother's Day.
Home decor gifts satisfy those millions of mothers who hold a keen interest in their families and homes. And, most mothers reveal they prefer long-lasting gifts to remind them of your gift of love throughout the years. Again, a home de cor gift does just that. A meaningful and successful home de cor gift as a Mother's Day gift will either match one of your mother's unique interests or it will be personalized to reflect something special about her or your sentiment towards her. Fortunately, choices abound in home decor accessories and gifts nowadays, including personalized home decor gifts. And, online shopping makes it even easier to fit Mother's Day gift shopping into your busy schedule, though you should plan on shopping earlier to allow for shipping time and to enjoy lower shipping rates. Rush shopping at the last minute will usually cost you more in all ways: more stress, less choice, rush and more expensive shipping.
Or, you'll just run out and get her the card, flowers or candy after all. And, it's not that moms don't like these as Mother's Day gifts (too). It's just that they're not usually thrilled to get the same thing, year after year, after year, after year. And here are some other secrets moms have revealed about what they do not want to get as Mother's Day gifts. Amazingly, most moms do not feel elated receiving those "useful" items that relate to doing chores, such as pots and pans, or a vacuum. And, the worse Mother's Day gift mothers have reported receiving is . nothing at all.
So please do give mother a Mother's Day card, a hug, or a call, at the very least. But depending on your budget, you might also consider giving her another gift as well. Indeed, many already seem to be doing that. Did you know that an average of $100 is now being spent on Mother's Day gift shopping? That may be more than your budget allows, though. So, if your budget is more middle of the road, you'll be pleased to discover that home decor gifts are value gems as Mother's Day gifts. There are many home decor gifts available for well under $50.
Ultimately, to please mom on Mother's Day, it's a rather simple matter. Just avoid those things on the short "not wanted" list above and give her either a home decor gift that matches her loves, or, something else that shows her you remember, love, and appreciate this very special woman, your "mom".
