It’s that time of the year again….Mother’s Day is just around the corner, and many of you are still probably trying to figure out the best gifts to get for your mums (obviously), wives, and mother-in-laws. Let me give you some sound advice from experience – if you’re thinking of flowers and chocolates – don’t. You’d only be begging for a slap. It’s time to get original.
Time to think outside the box.
Which is why I’m here to help you.
Pay attention, yeah? This is gonna go quick.
For The Weekenders: Top 3 Mother’s Day Gift Ideas – Rego Style…
Let’s start with the most important…your own mum.
By now, unless you’re a teenager reading this well, you’re mum – she’s pretty up there. In age that is. So you wanna get her something special…and I don’t mean something she can get at discount during Senior Citizen Sundays, either.
She’s a special lady – so you’ve gotta get her a special gift. Something timeless, something that breathes emotion – something that she’ll still use or talk about (in a good way) five years from now. After all – she housed you rent free for 9 months, changed her diet completely to absurd tastes, and went through ungodly things a female human being experiences that are only mentioned in hushed whispers. So…*shrugs* she’s kind of a big deal.
So you kind of wanna get her a big gift. I don’t mean in the literal size sense – but something that really has a sparkle and a bang to it. Something that says “I’m sorry for those times you wanted to pull your hair out with me, but look what a great functioning adult your kid turned out to be!”
That’s what mum’s wanna hear.
At least you’d hope they do.
Which is why if anything, you’ll want to get her and Eternity Circle Necklace – with an epic quote card.
Nothing says “thanks” like quoting George Washington – apparently, that man really knew his shit when it came to charming family members.
The necklace is handmade to order, and comprised entirely of sterling silver, but they also have gold if she’s more into the yellow stuff. Pair it with a gift tag that says “with love,” and a wise-crack card chock-full of humour, and you’ve got yourself one hell of a Mothers Day gift idea. If this isn’t a great way to say “thanks” to her for all she’s done well – I don’t know what is.
Present it to her during Mother’s Day Dinner gathering at that one fine restaurant you picked, and prepare to be showered with embarrassing hugs and kisses.
(If single, be prepared to be showered with attractive waitresses/waiters that think you’re just the sweetest thing ever for doing all that for your mother. Have that dialing finger ready – phone numbers will be abundant.)
In saying that – like yours, other people’s mums want to be appreciated, too.
If you’re married, the general assumption is you’ve got a mother-in-law.
You may love her, you may hate her, you may want to give her the best gift ever, or possibly throw darts at her…but dammit man/woman, if there’s one thing that’ll score you huge brownie points with the missus/mister, it’s remembering to get a gift for THEIR mom too.
So the best move here is to be thoughtful, but practical. You wanna shoot for a gift that’s functional, not classic hum-drum, and most of all useful. What could be something that’s useful? Well think about it….
For the most part, parents get old. And I mean like…..OLD (too much?). Which is why you should help them in every way possible to make their day to day lives easier – they did it for you kids – time to return the favor, wouldn’t you say?
One big factor of getting older can be misplacing things.
Glasses (my mum’s fucking famous for this – like a modern day Velma from Scooby Doo).
…joke on that last one.
So wouldn’t it make it easier if you could like, call out to things and they just answer you?
I thought so too.
Which is why I recommend getting the Kensington Proximo.
With this baby, you’ll never again have to be distracted from an intimate moment with your S.O. due to his/her mother ringing saying she needs help with something then turning that inquiry into an hour long gossip session.
Proximo keeps track of your phone and up to four other items with the “tags” provided, so long as you can attach said tags to the things you wanna keep track of.
So if mother-in-law “accidentally forgets” her purse, keys, phone, or any other conceivable thing, she’ll be alerted via her smartphone with a soft alarm that triggers the minute the tag is too far away.
It’s a really beneficial gift for the mother-in-laws that you actually like, too, as this means they’ll spend a lot less of their day trying to track down their phone from the coffee shop they left it behind at while catching up with their friends, and a lot more of their day on more important things – like enjoying their lives.
Now it all boils down to the wife. Dangerous territory here…but with enough thought, you’ll be sure to get the perfect gift for her.
You always wanna think carefully when getting a gift for the woman who bore your children. It’s like stepping into a mine field – be too conventional and you’ll get the disappointed look, fake smile, and shitty reciprocal gift come Father’s Day. Step outside the box too much and you’ll get a slap and that highly inappropriate card with those tacky lingerie selections thrown in your face.
Yep, it boils down to some real Sun Tzu’s Art of War type shiz.
I’ll give you a word of advice – think safe, and classy.
…and safe and classy is what you’ll get with a Michael Kors Slim Silver Case Runway Bracelet Watch.
If it’s one thing your wife’s learned to be, it’s time-management savvy. Between the kids, dinner, housework, and even their own jobs, they’re constantly multi-tasking making sure the ship they run is in, well…ship-shape. I don’t know how the fuck they do it – but all I’ve gotta say is bravo, and keep up the good work…because God knows humanity would be lost without you.
This Michael Kors watch not only helps your lovely lady keep track of little Timmy’s soccer game at 4 or keeping track of that pot roast so the house doesn’t go up in flames, but also adds elegance and grace to both of those activities.
It’ll show you put real thought into a gift because it’s a piece that’s timeless, unique, and versatile – meaning it can be worn by her in a casual and classy environment. Water resistant to 5 ATM and stainless steel, the Michael Kors Slim Silver Case Runway Bracelet Watch can take the everyday abuse of a dedicated mother, while still having her look like she takes care of herself first.
All in all, it’s a great way to let her know that you appreciate her, and always have – even after many years passed.
What’s not to love…? 😉
Happy pre-Mother’s Day mum (and all you other mothers out there!).
