@ozlo.gifts | @jouri.flowers.lb

With Mother’s Day edging close, many of us are searching for the perfect gift to express our appreciation and love to our mothers.

The list of their devotion and tasks to appreciate is too long to include here. You probably know it all, so, instead, here goes a list of some great gift ideas your mom will love!

#1 Cards to show how much you love her

This beautiful traditional way of expressing love and gratitude has more to offer than its modern substitute of email. They feel more personal, they can be maintained forever, and they stay handy to re-read any time your mom wishes or needs to.

Present your mother with a lovely card where you personally express your love and gratitude and how much she means to you. Not everyone feels at ease expressing their feelings verbally. This is your opportunity to do it, taking the time to think about your mom’s significance in your life.

Gifting your mother should not be expensive after all. Your genuine words will hold more value in her heart.

#2 A special cake for the occasion

They’re just beautifully festive for the occasion, these cakes for mother’s day! You could select from the variety pastry shops are offering and get your mom to celebrate surrounded by the family. After all, moms love to share. It is probably what they do best.

#3 A fav of the Chocolate Ladies

If your mom is a Chocolate Lady or just has a sweet tooth for chocolate, think of these delights in a nice gift box or tray.

Have her smile with every piece she’ll enjoy throughout the week.

#4 Say it with flowers

Floriography, or the language of flowers, is as beautifully practiced today as it was since its origins thousands of years ago. It is unknown who first came up with it. We do credit mother nature, though, for all the glorious beauty of flower varieties she blesses us with.

Flowers, after all, are soul- and heart-healing and they brighten up the room. Head to your nearest florist for some advice on the best flower arrangement to express your love to your mother.

The most popular flowers for Mother’s Day:

  • Tulips celebrate the cheerfulness of spring, and expresses a deep and perfect love. What could be a more perfect love than the mother’s to her children?
  • Pink Roses express joy and admiration,
  • Yellow Roses mean friendship, which fit well if you have a friendly bond with your mum,
  • Lush Lilies represent purity, fertility and rebirth,
  • Colorful Chrysanthemums – also called “mum” – represent happiness, love, longevity and joy.
  • Iris flowers are elegant and graceful; they represent faith, hope, courage, wisdom and admiration, depending of the color.
  • Carnations express love, fascination, strength, distinction, protection, and healing; also depending of their color.
  • Orchidea is kind of unique and could be gifted planted in a pot to last. This flower speak of love, luxury, beauty and strength.

#5 Various presents in one!

Gift Boxes are popular for a good reason. You get to give several gifts in one box to pamper your mama and they are just great to pull us out of our indecision of what to choose. Options of gift boxes are endless in the market. Head to her favorite stores and see what they have of prepared gifts your mother will enjoy.

#6 Show your care with beauty products

Many are the mothers who put the needs of their families before themselves, and, when it comes to buying a needed beauty product, they decide the budget is better allocated to them. So, this is your opportunity to give her that special beauty skin product she has been wishing for yet discarding as a “no priority.”

#7 Make Up

If your mother likes to put make-up on, well, make-up would be a very good idea. You can gift her lipsticks, concealers, blush, eye shadow, and so much more.

#8 An enjoyable dine-out experience

Get this, mothers don’t admit it, but they love being served a pleasing meal they didn’t have to cook themselves and all that it entails of preparing and cleaning before and after. Pick a restaurant serving a type of cuisine that your mother doesn’t cook herself at home, and get to spoil her in a charming setting, served as a queen.

#9 Perfume 

Perfumes and fragrances are great gift options and prices vary for different budgets. Choose the scents that your mother will most likely like, or just buy her her go-to or favorite perfume.

#10 Cheese & Wine Night

If your mother is a wine enthusiast, you can gift her a fancy and/or original wine for Mother’s day or prepare a wine & cheese night for her at home. It will be a lovely celebration. Just remember, you do the work before and after. It’s her special day, let her be served like royalty!

#11 Breakfast in bed

Make your gift the first thing she sees when she opens her eyes. For a change, let her day be not that of rushing out of bed to see to her tasks, but of being spoiled with a nice breakfast in bed. Have some soft music prepared to optimize her breakfast-in-bed experience. You will make her day!

#12 Self-care day

A gift of a spa day is an expression of love and gratitude. It tells your mother that you care for her and her well-being and that she deserves to rest, unwind, and get pampered with a good professional massage.

#13 Aromatic gifts

If you can’t afford her a day at the spa, aromatic candles and soaps are a great option, which she can enjoy for more than one day and at her own pace and leisure. These aromatic products are awesome. Not only do they fill her personal space with a soothing scent but they come with many benefits to the skin and the mood.

#14 A gift to lounge in trendy comfort

Loungewear or similar at-home clothing (like pajamas) have been a trend worldwide for allowing both comfort and graceful looks.

Moms don’t have to rush to change what they are wearing in the privacy of their home when someone unexpectedly shows up at the door. Loungewear is just perfect and cool looking, and also a go-to for ultimate comfort after work, during the weekend, or even when working from home.

#15 Jewelry and/or other accessories

A piece of jewelry is always very appreciated, and, if your budget doesn’t allow it, there are plenty of choices in the market like gold-plated pieces or even a lovely accessory that is affordable. After all, moms are really cool, they don’t want you to ruin yourself to buy them a gift.

#16 A trendy purse

Maybe it’s time for a new “fav” handbag for your mom? If so, this could be the gift you are looking for. Again, choices and options are limitless in the market, as well as prices that match different budgets. Lebanon has been producing amazing locally made purses and handbags. Consider it!

#17 A knitted outwear

Crochet is back in fashion and many Lebanese artisans are producing beautiful hand-knitted pieces, like cardigans, sweaters, shawls, ponchos, even purses, and more. Check them out here for ideas.
