Your mom is always running around doing something or the other, most of the time, for other members of the family and not for her. Why not give her a unique Christmas gift she will really thank you for while also giving her a well-deserved break. A weekend at the spa where she will be pampered from every angle is just the ticket. Whether it is a great massage, a long soak in a hot tub or just a mud-mask facial, she will come home re-energized.
Keep the pleasure going permanently by buying her an electronic foot massager. These devices look like a weighing scale, but far from bringing on the guilt, they melt away the stress and anxiety. Twenty minutes with one of these and she will be ready to say yes to whatever you didn’t dare ask her before.
Life for moms is not all worry and stress and a day on the golf course with her new clubs will keep her in trim and competitive with dad. Contemporary designs feature composites that would have been top secret in Jack Nicklaus’ glory days. They can provide the kind of flex that makes a two hundred yard shot nearly as easy as that twenty-foot putt.
Jewelry is always a great favourite, but go the extra step and personalize it. Even if it is diamond earrings or the perfect pearl necklace, the gift can still bear a unique stamp. Her initials on either side of the necklace chain can do the trick. On the other hand, earrings can be a design that is duplicated nowhere else.
For men that have been living in a cave for too long and have no clue what women like, here is a revelation – women love chocolate. However, do not settle for anything less than something exotic. Try a special thin Lindt Swiss slab. Alternatively, go all out for something made just for her inscribed with a line of poetry that you memorized when you met, if you can remember that far back!
Flowers are wonderful, but they do not last. Instead, think about a beautiful bonsai that will flower repeatedly year after year. Incorporate a tiny self-watering system. It adds little to the cost and makes maintenance a matter of seconds per month rather than a daily chore.
Does that special lady in your life love wine? If so, take it a step beyond the special vintage you had in mind. Get a subscription to a Wine of the Month club and you will get an ever-changing selection from around the world. One month it may be a super Sake from Japan, the next a great Gewürztraminer from Germany. The month after that, an awesome Australian Syrah will arrive in the mail.
There cannot be many moms who could not use more shoes. However buying shoes for women is a very tricky and risky business, whether the shopper is dad, son or daughter. If you have not heard her mention that unique pair down at the mall, better go virtual. Online shoe shopping can now fit her foot better than a careless salesperson. Templates allow her to tailor the fit to her individual foot and the selection is unbounded.
No matter what that special woman in your life is looking for, you can find it with a little diligence. Remember, what they want most is to know that you cared enough to search for just the right thing. Now, if you could only figure out what that is…
