Buying the perfect mother's day present | HAVANA HOME

Buying the perfect gift for mum on Mother's Day can be a challenge - the funny thing is that it get's harder every year.   

Take the hassle out of gift shopping with a these key tips:-

Make a list of her likes and dislikes and try to find something that would fit within this list. Perhaps she loves the colour blue, gardening or tennis but you know she doesn't like purple. Is she likely to enjoy something practical that she can use again and again or is she more likely to enjoy something that is used quickly – like a candle.

I always try to think of things of something my mum might not buy for herself. A beautiful perfume or a new beach towel – something she loves but would consider a bit of a luxury.  Not too luxurious though, mother's hate it when we spend too much money on them.

Show that you didn’t stop thinking of her once you paid for the gift. Take the time to wrap it beautiful adding a little something into the ribbon or a little fragrance on the paper.

Don't forget a card - everyone likes to receive a card with sentiment. That extra thought makes so much impact – and if it makes them laugh or smile then all the better.

Whatever you don't do regift, if you don’t like something do not give it to someone you love.  

Remember, it is the thought that counts! So put a little thought into your gift giving  and you are sure to be a winner.
