Every mother deserves a token of appreciation

If your mother is still alive, you should consider yourself very lucky and cherish her.

So many times, we are caught up in the city life, working and living life and we forget that back home in upcountry, our mothers are growing old. We forget to call and check in on them to see how they’re doing.

On this Mother’s Day, Sunday, 13th, do something different for your mother. I totally agree that we should not wait for this one particular day to appreciate our mothers. Still, Mother’s Day is all about all the moms out there who work so hard to provide for their kids and take care of the whole family. Appreciate your mother with a gift or even just spend time with her. She will appreciate the kind gesture.

Here are some Mother’s Day gift ideas.

1. A good read.

If your mother loves books, get her a book on a topic she loves or a biography of someone she loves. You could also get her a new Bible if she's not into books.


2. A good perfume.

If your mother is not so old, she’d definitely appreciate a good scent.

3. A trip.

When was the last time you took your mother on a trip? I’m sure she could use some unwinding! You could even take her on a drive to an out of town restaurant for a Mother’s Day lunch. Wouldn’t it be nice to catch up over the drive? Or over the lunch?


4. A family lunch.

Either at home or at a restaurant. Make it a family affair where all family members, if available, show up. You can even changa for a gift then surprise her after lunch.


5. A spa date.

Again, if your mother is not so old, she could definitely use a spa date. A massage would come in handy. Take her to get pampered, have her hair and nails done and feel beautiful again.


6. A Kitenge outfit.

If you know her size, buy her an outfit she will love and one that she can wear to church or functions. Make sure it comes complete with a head gear so that she can turn heads.

7. Cutlery & crockery.

I have never met a Kenyan mother that does not like a new thermos, set of cups, hot pots, plates etc., to them, that’s a thoughtful gift! So if your mother could use a new set of cutlery, get her one.


8. A gift voucher.

You could also get her a gift voucher in her favorite supermarket or store so that she can buy whatever she fancies.
