We tend to not take Mother’s Day too seriously in these parts; not that I don’t welcome an excuse to fête and be fêted, of course. We just don’t usually do gifts, especially of the typical tea, apron, or fancy scarf persuasion. I always feel that if I’m going to get something for my mum, it should be tailored to her in particular — not based on some trope of what mothers are ‘supposed’ to like.
So, here’s my virtual gift guide just for you, Marms. Maybe the rest of you might find something here that strikes a chord, too?
Image above: Why wait ’til 5pm? This couldn’t be more spot-on if it tried: Notes of Chardonnay eau de parfum by Kelly & Jones, via Brika.
We LOVE this show. Superb acting, great writing, and my mother only watches a TV series if it’s available on DVD, so she doesn’t even know the insane plot thing that happened this season (no spoilers here)!!
A vintage gold locket, because she wears delicate jewelry and you could personalize it by tucking a tiny childhood photo of yourself inside (or one of her beloved cat…).
For the love of god, please get rid of that ridiculous Blackberry that you can’t operate and get a phone that’s easy to use. Consider this a Mother’s Day intervention! The Windows Phone by HTC fits the bill.
Are you doing anything special for your mum this year?
