Mothers, I believe, intoxicate us. We idolise them and take them for granted. We hate them and blame them and exalt them more thoroughly than anyone else in our lives. We sift through the evidence of their love, reassure ourselves of their affection and its biological genesis. We can steal and lie and leave, and they will love us.
―Megan Mayhew Bergman, Birds of a Lesser Paradise: Stories
Mothers shape our being and help us become who we are. And although we should show gratitude and reward them every day, we often forget. Luckily, the 14th of May is a day dedicated to spoiling and treating them. It’s Mother’s Day. But when you have several women in your life to thank, finding the perfect gift can get complicated.
So, here is our sweet solution – read on for gift advice on how to shop for mums.
1) Granny: Rose Turkish Delight Gift Box
She gives the best hugs, and no matter when you visit, you’ll always find something to nibble on. She is understanding and wise, and whatever storm you face, you know she will have advice. Treat her with delicious rose-flavoured Turkish Delight, a sweet created for queens.
2) On-the-go mum: Pamper Hamper
There might be a million things on her plate, but if you ask, she’ll make a plan and find your solution. Although she’s always busy, she’s never too busy for you. Help her take a well-deserved break (even if it’s a little one) by giving her a deluxe Pamper Hamper. It’s filled with soothing Earl Grey tea, assorted nougat, crispy shortbread biscuits, Beyers Chocolates Chocolatier’s Turkish Delight box, Madagascan Coconut body butter and body scrub. Everything she needs to feel spoiled.
3) Mother-in-law: 15-Piece PVC Box
You might not always see eye-to-eye, but without her, your spouse would not be as special. Best of all, she’s filled with wisdom about what makes him/her tick. Spoil her with a delightfully fun assorted 15-piece chocolate box. In this heart-shaped box, she’ll find a treat for every mood. From brandy and mint through to cappuccino and praline fillings, she won’t be left wanting.
4) Sister: Mother’s Day Mug
For those of us lucky enough to have a sister, you know that they are something special. Although she might be brutally honest and know exactly where your buttons are and how to press them, she is always there to rely on. It doesn’t matter if she’s the youngest or the oldest, she plays the supporting parent. Make sure she knows how much she means to you with this beautiful mug filled decadent chocolate hollow balls wrapped in pink and silver foil.
5) Yourself: 9-Piece Gift Box
After a hard day of shopping for everyone, telling them how much they mean to you, don’t you think it’s time you say thanks to you? You know, just for being you. Regardless of what life throws at you, you can always rely on yourself to make it through. Treat yourself to a box of nine velvety milk chocolate pieces filled with golden, gooey caramel.
