Mothers are the most amazing people in our lives. They have been there with us since the start, giving us guidelines on how to exist in this world. Without moms life is somehow not complete.

Their unconditional love, the always-on-point advice and their constant care for us and not forgetting that they are always rooting for us in all aspects of our lives even when they have no idea what it is that we do or even why we are interested in the world’s weirdest stuff. They are still proud of us and all our weirdness.

Who else can be this amazing and awesome but a mother? This is why this Sunday you need to gift her as her show of your appreciation and her input into your life. Coz it wouldn’t be the same without her.

And because I believe deserve the most extra ordinary gifts, because they are not a cliché here are a few gifts ideas that are non-cliché and totally cool for Mother’s Day.

1. Handbags

For many fashion lovers, and especially bag lovers, our obsessions are learned in one very specific place: from our mothers. We learnt a lot from watching her choices in bags. And since fashion is a social sense, let your mom’s talk back by getting her an handbag that will accentuate her fashion and style.

2. Cookware

Its undeniable that mother’s know their way around the kitchen. After all they fed us for most of our younger years. We all have that meal that we know well nobody can make it quite like she can and you can argue with anyone on this just to convince them that your mum is the best in cooking it. For me it’s Chapatis—she can cook up a mean bunch of these.

3. Anti-aging products that work

The market is flooded with a lot of beauty products with each manufacturer claiming that theirs are the ones that work. If you are to get your mom any beauty products it’s advisable to get a recognized brand. For this you can’t go cheap because we don’t want her catching a bad break out, do we?

4. Aromatherapy oils

These come with a lot of therapeutic benefits. From relaxation, energy boosting, mental stimulation, stress relief and not forgetting the tones of health benefits that come out of using aromatherapy oils. This could be the best gift that you can get your mum this Mother’s Day

5. Perfume sets

Perfumes are a very personalized gift. It requires knowing the taste of a person really well. It also shows thought, effort and notice. Go for that classic scent that speaks of sophistication and elegance. Perfume is a great gift because scent has a link to memory and every time she smells it she will be reminded of your love and appreciation for her.

6. Jewelry

This may seem like a cliché gift, well, it probably is but, you can make it a cool gift. Everything is turned around on the kind of jewelry that you get her. A piece you have put thought and time into choosing can in no way be cliché. This could be a custom made jewelry piece or a gorgeous and outstanding piece that will show your appreciation.

7. Comfortable shoes

When it comes to footwear for mother’s they most of the time replace style for comfort. They end up wearing some not so appealing shoes. There are shoes that are bring out  comfort and style and that you can find in most of the shoe stores around. From adjustable wedges to demi wedge slip ons. You are sure to find a pair that will suit perfectly into her style.

8. Work out gear

Whether your mom is a workout enthusiast or just enjoys evening walks. Getting her a work out gear would be thoughtful . It could range from simple running shoes, ankle sports socks or a fitness watch with a Heart Rate Monitor. Whatever you choose make sure it is useful in her routine.

9. Spa treatment

This is a perfect gift. Since Mother’s Day falls on a Sunday, you can make this a perfect time to catch up with mom. What better way that a spa treatment. Getting pampered and getting lost in the serenity and relaxation that comes from this. And not forgetting the health benefits that come out of a day in the spa. And also spas offer a lot of packages to choose from.

10. Scented Candles

Scented candles make for a perfect Mother’s Day gift. This is because of the fresh scents that lighting one of this brings to the house. But this year not just go for the regular scented candles. You can go a little out of your way with this and get her an aromatherapy scented candle. This is because when it comes to aromatherapy candles every scent is different and unexpected and out of this world magical.

She deserves these and much more.
