Moms, we have a question for you. When someone asks you for gift ideas for an upcoming event, like your birthday, Christmas or Mother’s Day, what do you suggest?
Clothes? A book? Something for the house?
Why not ask for something a little more special to pamper yourself with? We’re pretty sure you’ve earned it.
We rounded up some of our favourite splurge gift ideas for moms, so you’ll be prepared next time someone asks you what you want. Maybe you should treat yourself to one of these!
In no particular order, here are our top ideas for gifts for moms that are anything but boring:
1. Designer sunglasses
Protect your eyes in style with a pair of sunglasses from your favourite designer.
2. A personal shopper / wardrobe consultation
Are you stuck in a style rut? Not sure what clothes suit you any more? Hiring a wardrobe consultant or personal shopper to help you evaluate what you currently own and find some new pieces that you’ll love to wear is a smart investment in yourself.
3. An Apple watch
Get the latest technology for your wrist, and you’ll always have easy access to your favourite apps, fitness software and of course, the time.
4. A girls’ getaway
We all need a break from the every day routine at times. What better way to escape than a fun getaway with some girlfriends? Relaxation on the beach or at a spa, a culinary adventure or a shopping trip are all fun ideas. Find some suggestions here: Getaway vacation ideas for women.
5. Monthly subscription service
Like flowers? Wouldn’t it be wonderful to have a beautiful bouquet show up at your door every month? Maybe you’d rather get a monthly delivery of a bottle of wine, or specialty coffee or makeup. There’s a myriad of choices available these days – pick your favourite for the gift that gives all year long.
6. A really awesome pair of shoes
A pair of Jimmy Choos perhaps? Or maybe a pair of Prada sandals or Christian Louboutin pumps are more your dream shoe? Channel your inner Sex and the City character to find the perfect pair of shoes for you.
We’ve all seen those before and after photos on TV and in magazines, and secretly wished it was us that had gotten a new look. If it’s been years since you’ve changed your hairstyle or makeup routine, this might be just the thing you need to rejuvenate yourself.
8. Professional photos (maybe combined with #7?)
Professional photographers know lots of tricks to bring out the best in you. Whether you need a fun new headshot for social media or haven’t had a good family photo taken in years, working with a pro can help you create lasting memories and images you’ll be proud to share.
You’re always supporting your kids as they learn new things, whether it be driving them to piano lessons or watching them at their dance recitals. When was the last time you pursued your passions by learning new skills or techniques? From photography lessons to learning to play the guitar to flying lessons, learning new things can bring excitement to your life.
