Top 10 Gift Ideas for Mom


Today is Mothers Day. Let's give our mom something special. Here are some of my gift ideas.

No. 10 - Flowers
Roses. These blooms are linked with motherhood. The number choice on Mother's Day. To the Greek goddess Isis, these are sacred, that's why it is ideal for mothers. Roses also symbolizes Mama Mary. The other choices for flowers are Lilacs(signifies love between mother and child), Irises (symbolizes warmth and affection), Orchids (refinement and beauty), Carnations (symbol of a mother's eternal love), Tulips (new life, spring and charity) and Lilies (usually added to mixed bouquets on Mother's Day for their grace and beauty).

No. 9 - Candles
Personalized candles are popular gifts during Mothers Day. Let's give our mom a relaxing moment with the flattering and soothing light, and mind-clearing aroma of a scented candle.


No. 8 - Gift Cards
Surprise our moms with gift cards! Give them a break from a busy schedule and shop to their favorite boutiques. They can choose their own gift and we can assure that they got what they want!

No. 7 - Gift Basket
If your mom loves cooking, gourmet gift basket will be a bright idea. Gardening gift basket (hand rake and hand shovel, garden gloves, a book about gardening, choose seeds from her favorite flowers). Pamper mom with Bath Gift Basket (her favorite soap, facial cleanser, foot soak, hand cream, body scrub). You can also choose variety of chocolates, wines, cookies, fruits, books, or any mom's favorites. It's the thought that really counts.

No. 6 - Home Spa Treat
Entice mom to take a day off with a collection of essential body oils. Enhance your mom's spa experience by using specialty bath products you don't use everyday like specialty body wash, bath salts, bath oils, and milk baths. Give her some beauty treatments mud mask and facial peel masks. Wrap herself with softness with Spa robe or towel.

No. 5 - Home Decor
There is no place like home. Home is their sanctuary. Some moms are fond of collecting home decors. Give them something unique. Decorative pillows, lampshades, rugs, vases, candle holders, collectible figurines, etc. These will remind her of you even if your not around at home.

No. 4 - Sweet Treats
A box of chocolates, cookies, brownies or tarts for her coffee break. Personalized cakes and pastries would be a great idea too.

No. 3 - Greenery
Some moms enjoy gardening. Why not give them some potted plants. Plants will make homes more relaxing and stress free sanctuary. Flowers also can give color, fragrance and life to the home. It can also changes the mood. Gardens are usually a place to escape. It can lessen anxieties. A place for gentle rehabilitative therapy and prayer. This can also give mom an exercise as well as enhanced emotional being.

No. 2 - Perfume
Give her a bottle of her favorite perfume. They said that scent is the most powerful sense attached to the memory. Here are the Best Fragrances for Mothers Day 2012: 01) Prada by Prada - according to what I read, this scent is for the powerful and confident women who can do it all. Containing blend of bergamot, rose, patchouli, raspberry, sandalwood and vanilla. 02) Chanel Chance - for sophisticated women. Includes pink pepper, lemon and pineapple, hyacinth, jasmine and iris, amber, patchouli, vetiver and white musk. Great for showing off your lady-like demeanor. 03) Omnia Crystalline by Bvlgari - soft floral fragrance. Includes Asian fruit Nashim, apple and pear, lotus blossom, and some woodsy notes. This is a great relaxing fragrance which all mothers will enjoy. 04) Alfred Sung - great for a working mom. Composed of orange, mandarin, bergamot and lemon, ylang-ylang, galbanum, jasmine, iris, vanilla tones, orange wood, sandalwood, amber and vetiver. 05) Calvin Klein Euphoria - for the on the go mom because its fragrance last long. Includes scents of Sicilian bergamot, peach, green notes, lotus, champaca, orchid and wite, sandalwood, and liquid amber.

No. 1 - Spa Treatment
After a lifetime of making you feel good when you needed it the most, treating her to a day of relaxation is one small way of paying her back.

Let your mom feel special on Mothers Day.
