In need of a Mother’s Day gift? Mother’s Day 2019 falls on 12 May here in Malaysia. Mothers are the backbone of the world and she can appear in many shapes and sizes. She may be your biological mother or your mother-in-law, maybe your best friend's mom, or perhaps someone whose motherly instinct has helped you through some hard times. No matter who she is, we think you should be showing your appreciation all year round.
Make it special this year and do not settle for that the generic mug. It could be an item to make a part of her life easier, a product she might have mentioned wanting in passing, or something completely impractical but makes her feel like a damn queen! Show your appreciation with a gift picked just for her. So while you can't put a price on everything she's done for you, but heartfelt gifts certainly help.
Here is a list of something for all the wonderful Moms out there:
For the Unique
Parents love turning on the radio to complain about today’s music. Victrola 50's inspired Record Player is designed to be a blast from the past. Let her put those vinyl records and favourite albums collecting dust to good use. She will be blasting The Carpenters and The Beatles to her heart’s content. Then switch to the radio for newer jams that she likes (but will never admit it).
Ancestry.com is the perfect unique gift for Mom. It is a kit for anyone looking for more insight into their family history. Just submit a DNA sample to the company, Ancestry will send information on everything from your ethnic background to relatives you didn’t even know you had. You might just end up getting busy having new relatives to visit during CNY or Hari Raya!
For Something Personalised
This genuine leather key holder may be something simple but it is a daily used item made special with personalised engraving of a name or thoughtful message. It will be something she carries around with her all the time, thus keeping you close to her always.
JEOEL’s lockets can be engraved for a total of RM79 to RM119 this year.
For the Flower Fan
If you are thinking about giving her flowers but hate the fact that they don’t last very long? Get this crystal flower so your Mom can have flower everytime, anytime. She will also be able to further personalise it by adding more meaningful beads in the future. This lovely beads and bangle set is available at a discounted price via jeoel.com.
For the Tech-Savvy
Almost every mom has a book list whether she has gotten around to any of it, well that’s another story. You know she’s pretty good with new technology so why not combine that with her love for reading. The Kindle Paperwhite is even waterproof and lasts weeks on one charge. She’ll be able to carry around so many ‘books’ in her handbag at once.
At the end of the day, Moms also deserve some time to lift their legs on the sofa and kickback with a little Netflix. Give your Mom the gift of binge-worthy TV shows and movies for any occasion at all. She’ll probably appreciate the break from the usual Starbucks cards or Uniqlo gift vouchers
For the Creative
Does the Mom in your life like creating things with her hands? There is an abundant choice for creative art session around Kuala Lumpur and surrounding areas. From recreating scenes from Ghost (a movie she probably loves) with pottery and clay shaping, to getting a group of friends for an art jamming session where each art piece is a combination of everybody’s work!
For the Handmade
Handmade gifts are always something special because it is one of a kind and the person receiving it knows that you have spent money, time and effort into making something completely unique. Although it maybe never quite be perfect, it’s the flaws that make it distinct. Embroidery designs and small items collected can make a lovely Mother's Day gift. Visit sites like Pinterest to gets tons of ideas.
For the Connoisseur
She’s a coffee connoisseur and likes to get her dose of caffeine in the early morning to get her day started, and because a constant IV of coffee may not be possible (yet) you can gift busy moms the next best thing – their own personal espresso maker. All cheaper and faster than making a morning run to the coffee house.
If she’s a wine connoisseur and likes to wind down with a glass of wine at night, these Self-chilling Stemless Wine Glasses are a pretty nifty gift. With magnetic freezer inserts, it makes drinks stay cold longer. This will probably help her cool down when the naughty kids are about to make her blow her head off.
For the Chef
The chopping board is an absolute necessity in the kitchen and if your Mom is one that knows her way around, why not enhance the cooking experience with a touch of detail such as an imprint on the chopping board. Moms food is always the best!
The Le Creuset is the crème-de-la-crème of Dutch oven pots. Made of sturdy cast iron, it comes in gorgeous colours and will last for years. It’s one of those things that she’s been drooling over but would never splurge on herself. You will probably be benefiting from the yummy soups and stews she will be creating with the cute little piece anyway.
For the Fit
If your Mom is health conscious and eager to keep fit, these two items will be perfect for her. A chic Fitbit band can help her reach her goals by tracking her all day activity (yes those steps back and forth to the laundry room count), cardio score when lifting your little baby brother and even sleep cycle. Some nice moisture wicking gym clothes will make her feel like a celebrity at Zumba class.
She’s the Mother of your Mother, or Mother of your Father, she was there when you were growing up and maybe even stood in place for Mom and Dad while they were hard at work earning a living to ensure you got the best in life. Mama or Popo deserved an everlasting Diamond seen in this Diamond Butterfly Fan – the butterfly is a symbol of long life.
If Grandma prefers something more outstanding, this exceptional piece of jewellery will be right for her. The bright teal of the authentic Amazonite gemstone represents communication, truth and honour, all admirable qualities to have, all becoming of a Grandmother.
For Your Wife
There is no mom on the planet who doesn’t deserve some major pampering on the regular. Help her treat herself with a spa gift card. Remember to keep in mind to choose a location nearby as she probably will have to find time to squeeze it into her busy schedule.
Husbands and Fathers, she’s the Mother of your children and she has carried your precious cargo in her belly for 9 months. This Diamond Flower Fan - a sign of love and beauty makes for the perfect gift for new moms and long deserving ones.
