Mother’s day is exactly a week away. Some of you may have already chosen or even bought the gift for your Mama bear, other’s that are falling in my category, who haven’t zeroed in the gift to buy for their mom, this post is all you need to figure it out. Choosing a gift is generally tough, read these 10 gifting ideas and thank me later 🙂
Trust, this is a specially curated gift list to make every kind of mama happy and at the same time not burn a hole in your pocket. Not that you’d mind, I mean, it’s your mom, afterall. But let’s still choose the gift wisely.
There you go:
1.The Sheet Masks: Starting at just Rs. 100 per piece, they are really effective. Choose the one for your mom’s skin type or issue and see her Glow. Buy as many you want.
Available at Nykaa in a wide range. I love the Avocado & Pomegranate. You can also visit your nearest Sephora Store for more.
2.Make up: If your Mom loves makeup, look no further than The Loreal India Cannes Collection ft. Deepika Padukone & Aishwary Rai Bachchan.It includes amazing highlighters, pressed powder, foundation and of course some lipsticks in stunning shades.
Suggested: Loreal Pars Tin Caresse – B08 Plum Blossom. It’s a stunning maroon to suit all skin tones. Retailing at Rs. 840 on Nykaa after discount.

3.Jewellery: Third in this list but first love of every mother. Agreed, right?
Remember, how stunning Devasena’s jewellery was in Baahubali 2? The collection is now available online at Amrapali. Everything from toe rings, rings, matha patti, nose rings to full sets can be bought depending on what your mom prefers. Good news: it starts at just Rs. 390. Personal favourites are in the pics. All items are handcrafted silver gold plated, definitely a treasure.
Self confession: I am buying one for myself too.

4.Temple Jewellery: Yes, jewellery again. You must be convinced my mom is a jewellery lover.Temple jewellery is a different league all together in the jewellery segment. It goes back to several decades and were mainly adorned by the Goddesses in temple, hence, the name. It looks stunning on both Sarees or Suits. Just one piece, like earring can change the way your mom looks as they are usually chunky. You can buy earrings for less than Rs.5000

5.Sari: No other outfit can look better than a sari. Indian Moms love to flaunt their sari. Add one or a couple more to her wardrobe. Because, its hot, prefer a cotton or linen sari or just buy a rich silk sari for upcoming festivals or any occasion.

7.For the Big Sized Budget: This ones for those of you with a stretched budget. Yes,money can’t buy happiness stands true, almost always. But just sometimes, it does buy happiness. Go ahead and splurge for your Mom. Buy her some diamonds or precious stones , an IT bag from Gucci, Louis Vuitton or Chanel, a Sabyasachi or a Manish Malhotra Saree or whatever your heart desires. Here’s what I suggest. These may cost you anything above Rs. 50K to Rs. 20Lac plus. Tap on the pic, I have mentioned the prices if known to me.

8.Shoo the stress: Mother’s have infinite energies but they need a downtime too. Gift her a day off, book her a session at the nearest Spa and she’d return very happy. Most spas, I believe will run offers around Mother’s day, so you should be able to get a good deal. Call them now.
9.Customized gifting: Nothing speaks louder than a personilzed gift with the cutest messages. Show your love by personalizing an item with her picture or a picture of you and her.Just google personilzed giftying and you’d see a ton loads of websites do this. Mugs, Lamps, Bedsheet, Cushions, Cakes,you name it, anything can be customized. You can also refer to some DIYs online for cards, frames and what not.
10.Go that extra mile: Cook her favourite food or just go to her favourite restaurant. Bill is on you, of course.
