Being a mother is never easy. Aside from taking care of herself, she also has to think about the kids, the husband, and managing the household. In other words, she plays an important role in the family’s life.
It only happens once in a year where we all pay tribute to our mothers. If you’re unsure what to give to the woman of your life this coming Mother’s Day, then this one is for you. Don’t worry. This is within your budget too.
1. Multi-functional Grater
Kitchen will always be momma’s domain. Help her out with the cutting – or even grating – duties by giving her a multi-functional grater. It easily slices or grates fruits, vegetables, and even cheese. Most multi-functional graters are also easy to clean and assemble.
Check out Metaltex’s multi-functional grater for only P599.75. If you have few more hundreds to spare, go for Multi-Purpose grater for only P999.75.
2. Stainless Steel Lunch Box
Is your mom always on the go? Does her daily schedule include basketball practices, running errands, and school duties? She will surely need something to replenish her in between and a stainless steel lunch box can be her best friend. It keeps food warm for up to four hours and the best part is it won’t cost you too much.
Try SM Home Stainless Steel Lunch Box for P200.00. It comes in three different colors too – pink, green, and blue.
In addition to her lunch box, a tumbler will be a good company as she does her errands and while stuck in traffic.
Go for something with longer cold and heat retention capability just like Emsa Mobility Vacuum Flask. This tumbler will make sure the coffee remains hot or the water stays cold whenever she is out.
If you want double purpose, get her a blender with tumbler for her juicing needs.
4. Grocery Delivery Service
A trip to the grocery is one of the many errands moms do these days. Pay for online grocery delivery service for your mom to save her time and energy. She will surely appreciate it!
5. The Soundtrack of Her Life
Who doesn’t love music? When everything else gets stressful, listening to music, especially her favorite songs can lift her mood.
Create her a playlist full of her favorite songs and personal picks. Categorize them according to her daily tasks like “For the Kitchen,” “Cleaning Playlist,” “Stuck in Traffic,” or “In the Bathroom.”
6. Jar Opener
Is mom having a hard time opening your favorite sandwich spread? Getting her a jar opener could save her day and make kitchen tasks easier for her.
EVH Easy Twist Jar Opener can fit in multiple jar sizes and comes with a rubber grip too. You also get two for only P599.00.
7. Picnic at Home
You don’t need to go to Tagaytay or Nuvali to have a picnic with your mom. All you need is to set up your home and have a pretend picnic. Make sandwiches, bring out the board games, paint, or do anything that you and your mom both enjoy. The gift of time is something money cannot buy, but it is among the most precious gifts you can give to the lady in your life.
8. Coffee and Stories
Nothing beats a cup of coffee in the morning. It jumpstarts her day and keep her energized for what’s about to happen. Share a cup of coffee with your mom one morning and sit down and talk. You can get your cup of Joe from your favorite coffee shop or brew your own coffee at home.
9. In-Home Massage
Moms can be the busiest people in the world. They rarely get me-time and travelling to and from the spa can take up so much of their time too. If budget permits, why not treat her with a home service package, complete with massage, manicure, and pedicure? Otherwise, a full-body massage will do to get her recharged and replenished.
More than material things, the best gift you can give your mom is your time and appreciation for everything she’s done. Treat her like a queen not just during Mother’s Day but everyday and you will surely keep her happy.
