Mums often put others first and give so much of themselves that a single day in a year to honour them isn’t quite enough.
Still, Mother’s Day — celebrated on the second Sunday of May in many parts of the world — does present an opportunity to make our mums feel seen and extra loved.
Every country and culture has its own practices when it comes to honouring mothers. In Japan, for example, children draw pictures of their mommas to gift them, while in Mexico, matriarchs are serenaded with special songs.
Regardless of the tradition, though, the underlying message is universal — mums deserve the very best!
So what are you doing for your dear ma this Mother’s Day? Have you gotten her a special gift yet? If you haven’t, we have some suggestions that she’s guaranteed to love!
The gift of time
Indeed, an elegant wristwatch will not only remind mum of your love, but also symbolise the time she always makes for family.
While there are many watch options to choose from, and picking the right one can be challenging, if refinement and class are what you’re in the market for, you can’t go wrong with a Bernhard H. Mayer classic.
Check out especially the chic and sophisticated Lurve Collection — comprising the Lurve Watch and Lurve Diamond Watch — that exudes warmth, strength and femininity, and is perfect for mother dearest.
A break could do her good
To a mum, work is 24/7, and you can bet that the last two pandemic-touched years have been even more demanding. So why not get her a vacation and the opportunity to kick back and unwind?
QVI, QNET’s one-stop travel platform, has a host of holiday options that could be perfect.
From domestic short stay options with QVI Breaks, to longer planned vacations with QVI Club, there’s something for every taste and budget. If you’re a savvy traveler, try our online booking platform QVI Tripsavr and get the best deals for your next trip.
Shine bright with jewellery
Mothers are dazzling and amazing in their dedication. As such, picking a fine piece of jewellery for her says that you acknowledge and appreciate how she shines.
It’s a sentimental gift, of course, and half the fun in gifting someone jewellery is choosing the perfect item that matches both their look and nature.
Bernhard H. Mayer’s jewellery collection, thus, is perfect in that it offers intricately handcrafted pieces for every personality and taste.
Incidentally, if you’re looking for something truly ageless and exquisite, check out the items in the Pearl Icons Collection.
Seasons and times may change, but the pearl’s status as the gem du jour, like a mother’s love, has endured. In short, you can’t go wrong with a fine and rich pearl piece.
Give energy a boost
On the topic of jewellery, what about a pendant with a purpose — the Amezcua Chi Pendant 4, a unique product that is designed to increase energy and cut out the stress from daily life.
“Mommy burnout” or fatigue from the chronic stress of parenting is a real thing.
So if your mum’s been particularly tired of late, the Chi Pendant 4 — the product of years of cutting-edge research — is exactly the mood booster she’ll treasure.
What’s more, the pendant’s gorgeous “flower of life” surface complements outfits beautifully, while making the wearer feel great, both physically and mentally.
Of course, on top of all the gifts, nothing says “I love you, Mummy” better than showing mum appreciation and helping her out whenever you can. And the best part is, you can do that all year round!
