Every mother is different and you're probably sure that yours is the best. This, of course, means that you will want nothing more this Mother's Day than to get her an amazing gift. She may say she doesn't need or want anything, but it is always good to make her feel appreciated on this special day.
But the problem is, how do you know what to get her if she doesn't give you any ideas or clues? Well, here are some gift ideas that she will most likely love.
Nothing beats beautiful jewellery
Jewellery is one thing you can never have enough of. The more variety she has, the more options she has for different occasions. And since you grew up with this woman and often spend time with her, you should definitely have a good idea of what kind of jewellery she likes and even what jewellery she already has. This means that when you're searching through jewellery stores in South Africa, you will have a clear idea of what you are looking for. Luckily for you, Canal Walk has some of the best jewellery shops in Cape Town. And you wouldn't want to purchase your Mother's Day gift from any place that is not one of the top jewellery stores in the area.
Stylish, handmade picture frames are a winner
No, not handmade by you. Unless, of course, you're handy with wood and are known for your beautiful crafts. Otherwise, you will want to visit home-style boutique stores to find unique frames in shapes and colours that match your mother's decor. Whitewashed wood is generally a popular choice. Or you could go for a dark wood with a rich colour. But you can't simply give your dear mom an empty picture frame. You could fill it with an old photograph of you with your siblings, a meaningful snapshot of your mother and you, or you could even book a session for a family portrait with a photographer.
Spa products are perfect for a busy mother
If your mother is one of those women who is always busy doing something and never really sits down to relax, spa products may be perfect for her. At this time of year, you'll find amazing gift sets, which include bath salts, various creams and lotions, and pretty much anything that smells amazing and will help your mom relax and feel rejuvenated.
Handbags and accessories
A woman can never have too many handbags or accessories and that's a fact. Perhaps your mother has a fancy function coming up and could use a stylish handbag to go with her carefully-chosen outfit. Or maybe, because winter is on its way, you could buy her a beautiful scarf to keep her warm as she goes about her day? The best thing about handbags and accessories like scarves is that there are so many different styles that there is always one to suit the person you're buying a gift for.
You can't go wrong with a bouquet of fresh flowers
Lastly, most mothers love receiving a bunch of fresh flowers on Mother's Day. It's something special that they most likely don't receive every day. It will brighten up their lounge or TV room and they'll think of you every time they see it.
It's important that we take this time to remember all the amazing and selfless things our mothers have done for us over the years. Just remember, it's the thought that counts, so don't just go ahead and buy the first thing you see. Shop around for a bit. Canal Walk has everything you need.
