With all the bustle that this global crisis has put us in, the first four months of the year seem to have swooped by — and before you know it, it’s May! The one with the singular day of the year where, despite everything going on around us, we can not only acknowledge but even express our deep gratitude to the motherly figures in our lives who have, on multiple occasions, been our chauffeurs, cooks, doctors, and caregivers.

1. Special Experience

One of the guaranteed things about being a Mum is the constant hectic rush. Running helter-skelter with all the work you do can often be the most exhausting part of motherhood. So, how about giving your Mum a special experience as a gift she will always remember. The best part about this is that not only is it pocket friendly, but it is also a gift that cannot go wrong. Why? That’s simple — because it can be about anything that she loves. Got a Mum that loves nature? Organise a hike! Got a Mum who loves her time in the sun? How about a perfect relaxing afternoon at the beach? Got the kind of Mum who loves romantic comedies? You could plan a movie marathon of her favourite romcoms and make it a special day in. Not only does this give her a good time and a much-needed break, but it also enables bonding.

Often times, we forget the value that certain memories carry until we stop them frozen in a photo album. One of the most sentimental gifts you could get your Mum this year is an old photograph of a precious memory. It could be of a childhood pet, the whole family, or even a re-created image of you (and perhaps your sibling) from your childhood. The highlight of this gift is that it never goes anywhere. Once immortalised in a frame, this gift can stay on the mantle forever, reminding her of the beautiful memory shared.

3. Personal Pendant

If your Mum is the kind who likes her fair share of elegant Mothers Day jewellery — be it through understated stylings or through prominent patters —  then the best gift for her could be a personalised pendant. This pendant could be a symbol of your bond, a token of appreciation, or even an expression of your feelings towards her. You can even get her a pendant of something she is fond of. This could range from heart-shaped lockets to symbolic things like a necklace with the gemstone of her birth month. Birthstone jewellery is all the rage, and if paired correctly a classic that will never go out of style. Take, for example, the eternal glamour of the emerald, pearl, or sapphire.

4. Customised Rings

A diamond ring with Mum written on it is the ideal ring to gift someone special because it subtly but perfectly conveys the emotion and value of that person in your life.
