Being a mother is the hardest job and these strong beauties make it seem so easy! Let’s take advantage of Mother’s Day to honor these beautiful women and show them love and respect.
Your mama deserves something valuable like her, which means anything from a dainty gold necklace to a new Kitchen Aid mixer. If you’re confused, trust me, all of us are too! Either way, let’s reward these loyal courageous queens for all the times they have had our backs, and they managed to save the day so effortlessly!
Here are some gift ideas:
A day at the spa
Spoil your mama at the best spa in town, an experience she won’t thank you enough for. Walk into a dim candlelit spa, with endless steam and rich oils. Five-star spas like those at the Four Seasons and the Nile Ritz-Carlton are a prestigious reward for any mom. The Nile Ritz Carlton speaks the language of luxury, and it’s an absolute favorite for me.
Azza Fahmy released a Mother’s Day collection to share a bond between mothers and daughter through timeless jewelry. The stunning collection has one of each essential jewelry piece, so why not match, ladies? And for guys, the collection is not hard to pick from; they’re simply stunning. Check it out here.
If your mom’s cooking, cleaning and dealing with you, it’s is exhausting her. Better get her moving! Since women are less physically active, a gym will help her release the built-up tension while keeping her fit and healthy. Every ‘busy’ mom can spare some me-time for a CrossFit class or some energetic resistance training. Also, a great option for women who just had a baby and looking forward to snapping back into their pre-weight old jeans. This gift keeps on giving!
A tote bag
Moms have the tendency to throw everything in their bags, especially new moms with toddlers. We want to say bye to the ugly diaper bags and give them an option that doesn’t fall under a mom look. All women love a practical shoulder bag, so give her more to love. Remember, a good purse is roomy, functional, and stylish! For bags like this, visit Nuniz, here.
With so many local candle brands, burn something that relaxes and unwinds her hectic days. No gifts compare to a self-care ritual after a long working day. Moms work around the clock and the simplicity of burning a fragrant lavender candle is all it takes. Candles are also super versatile and budget-friendly. Find some options here.
Yes, it’s cliche to get your mom homeware, but all moms love it. Instead of a weird glass vase that will end up collecting dust, coins, bobby pins, and coins, these super chic throw pillows will spice up any living room. For the entire collection, click here.
Arabic numbers watch
These stainless steel watches come in the colors of Cairo. The mesh leather and Arabic numbers add an authentic luxurious touch our moms will adore.
