Five functional gifts ideas for Mother’s Day
While Britons have already celebrated Mother’s Day, Americans, Germans, Italians and Japanese – as well as people from 90 more countries – will do it on 9th May this year.
Now that the date has been set, it’s possible to finally start planning about what gifts to buy. Including a chocolate bouquet, which is a no-brainer. However, it’s advised that doubling that with a unique and functional gift will add value to her life.
Confused about what to get for mum? Here’s a list of unique gifts:
A fancy candle set
Candles do an amazing job of lighting up a room. They can also infuse the room’s air with an amazing scent. They are inexpensive and come in various colours and scents.
It’s possible to buy a combination of candles that come in glass vessels. These candles can burn up to fifty-five hours, any mum will love them.
Amazon Echo Spot
Gifts work best when they are functional. Amazon Echo Spot makes up a good choice for a functional gift.
The Amazon Echo Spot is a combination of Amazon’s smart assistant and a small circular device that aims to replace the conventional alarm clock. The device also includes a small camera that can be used to view things like video calls and to play games with other Echo devices. The Echo Spot has a 2.5-inch display and two speakers. In addition to all of the features of Amazon’s other Echo devices, the Spot also comes with a built-in camera that can be used to play games or make video calls.
The Echo can be one of the best gifting options for any mum.
Soft and crisp bedding
Does mum often suffer from back pain or body ache? If that’s so, gifting her soft, comfortable and crisp bedding can do a world of good.
Here’s a quick guide to buying comfortable bedding:
“Thread count” determines the cosiness of bedding. It essentially measures the number of threads that can fit into one square inch of the sheet fabric. Standard sheets include 300-500 thread count. Higher thread counts, like 800, 600, 1000, or even 1,000+, mean more threads in the same amount of space. This results in a softer, more luxurious feeling and looking sheet.
So, try to buy bedding with more thread count. Even if mum doesn’t suffer from body aches (which is awesome), what’s wrong in gifting her cosy bedding anyway?
Gift her beautiful house plants
Plants are a great way to make any house feel alive. And while some may think that house plants are just for decorative purposes, they can actually have many other benefits. House plants can increase office productivity, reduce stress and even increase happiness.
Each mother will wake up every day, water them and smile thinking of their child. Moreover, they help keep the home’s air fresh. What more can you ask for?
A Kindle Paperwhite
For a mother tired of holding those hardcovers, maybe it’s time you buy her something more feasible. What better than Amazon Kindle? Millions of books in one device – and the newest versions are waterproof!
For a mother who is into reading, gift her a Kindle. It is designed for reading and mum can read unlimited books on the go. She will be grateful for this.
A mother’s job is never done. She’s there to bake cookies, help with homework, give advice and love. Sometimes, it’s just about showing her care. That’s when it’s time to give her a gift.
