What your mom really wants this Mother’s Day
With everything that moms do for us, it can seem impossible to find a fitting way to say thank you. Here are some ideas from moms themselves that we hope will help.
It always seems harder to find the perfect gift for those you love the most. Here are some ideas from some of our favourite blogger moms that we hope will help you to find the perfect thing for your own ma.
A PAMPER HAMPER
A lot of moms will tell you that the thing they desire most is a little quality time to themselves. “As a mother of three small kids, hands down I would say I would love a full day to myself to do anything I want,” says Journey With Mum blogger Natasha Zaahida Nathoo-Joel. So why not put together a ‘Mom Pamper Box’ filled with some fabulous spoils and all her favourite things? “Include things like homemade cards, chocolate, sweets, tea bags or coffee sachets, a book, a mug, hand cream or facemasks, bubble bath, DVDs and so on,” suggests Spicegoddess blogger Verushka Ramasami. You can get the whole family involved in making the box up! Head to your nearest The Body Shop or Clicks and you’ll be able to get everything you need with a swipe of your RCS Card.
JEWELLERY WITH MEANING
“I’d love a nice piece of jewellery that represents my kids,” says Muller Kids blogger Kim Muller. Get the kids involved in picking out some stackable rings. If you’re on a budget you can get something beautiful from Accessorize, or if you want to get something more valuable try NWJ, American Swiss, or Arthur Kaplan – all of these stores are part of the RCS Shopping Network.
Blogger Laura-Kim le Roux of Harassed Mom loves the idea of a charm bracelet. “Each year the kids each choose a charm to add on – that way it has meaning to it,” she says. Swipe your RCS Card at Sterns or Galaxy & Co. to find just what you’re looking for.
CAPTURE THE MEMORIES
Every mum treasures precious family moments, and there’s nothing more convenient than an instant camera to capture them with. “I think that would make an awesome and cool Mother's Day gift,” says Mommy and Baby Approved blogger Olerato Moiloa. Superbalist stocks the Instax Mini 8 camera in a variety of colours for just R1 099, so you can pick one out in mom’s favourite colour and use your RCS Card to conveniently order online. Melissa de la Croix of Pretty Messy Mellon loves the idea of stringing family snaps around her home, so add a Clothesline photo display (R599) or Hangit photo display (R459) and some film (R179) to your Superbalist basket and you have the perfect Mother’s Day gift!
