A mother would be satisfied simply to know that you are OK. However, for those daughters and sons that want to offer their mothers some material presents, not only their love and appreciation, we have thought to present these potential gifts. If you have the money, you can make combinations between the products presented here.
1. We will start with a not so emotional product like the ones we will present immediately after this, because we don't want you to start crying even from the beginning. This is the “Working Mother” magazine, a great product for dynamic mothers. It may be tough to raise your children and continue with your career, but many women out there do this nowadays and do it just great. The price of this magazine is of $9.97 and it can be bought from Magazineline. If you live in the United States, you know that this is an already discounted “Working Mother” magazine, the seller offering a 64% discount.
2. “Dear Mother Music Box” is a unique collectible porcelain music box, a touching gift for any mother. This can be bought from The Bradford Exchange Online and costs $49.99. You can send your mom all your love with this collectible music box. This product was inspired by the letters shared many years ago between mothers and children.
3. We have mentioned something about emotional gifts; well, this is another one. It is the birthday poem keepsake for her (in your case, for your mother). The manufacturer of this product can design it for 8 persons, important in your life, such as your mother, grandmother, godmother, sister, aunt and so on. You can personalize this gift as you want, if you believe you are creative and talented or you can simply use the declaration written by the artists that have created it. PersonalizationMall.com sells this gift for $29.95. To show them that you have seen this product firstly presented on gifts.com and also to receive a 15% discount, you can use the GIFTS328 code.
4. Is your mother young? If so, she could receive very well this birthstone brooch, which is a modern take on classic jewelry. RedEnvelope sells it for $64.99. This seller also offers a 15% discount, if you use the GIFTSCOM15 code on your order. This brooch features up to 5 birthstones that represent children and family.
5. If your mother receives a brooch, it would be great to receive also a necklace, like this one presented in the above image. This is a good birthday gift for a new mother and can be bought from RedEnvelope too, for $59.95.
Children are people that know best their parents because they live in the same house with them or at least they did, when they were children and teenagers. So if you want to buy a product for your mother or father, you are the only one that knows if that product is going to be appreciated by your her/him. I cannot recommend you to get a certain item and hope that they will like it. However, of all the products that are available online, which can be offered to a dad on his birthday, I believe those that are presented in this article will be very much appreciated by a father.
1. We will begin with an emotional product; it is a frame where you can write your own feelings towards your dad. This product is $5.75 and has 4.5 x 4.5″. It is a nice gift that will bring tears to the eyes of your father. A very good message is the one written in the above picture, so if you don't want to personalize this gift with a message of your own, you can use the default message. The frame is made from solid wood mahogany burl and has an easel back for standing. The text comes from the Scripture. It is made in the United States and it is usually bought along with the “Love You Mom” lighted cube, that is $4.30.
2. Another product that expresses your love for your father is the “A Message For My Father” gift ($11.95). This message is represented by a poem, that is double matted in high-quality mats. This emotional item is intended to become a treasured keepsake and just like the previous product, it can be bought along with a touching poem written for your mother, that is also enhanced with delicate, watercolor graphics.
3. Willow Tree is a manufacturer of figurines. For $25.60, you can buy a product from them, that represents a father with two girls. Obviously, this product is great if the situation applies to your father. In other words, if you have a sister and if you're also a female, this product is suitable, if not, try to buy another figurine from Willow Tree. The figurine is designed by Susan Lordi and is meant to express wonder, joy and strength, all at the same time. The figurines made by this company can be used alone or grouped in family. My point is that if you don't want to make your mother feel a little bit uncomfortable, you can also buy a mother figurine.
When we are saying about a gift that is creative, it means that the item contains in fact more products that are arranged in a way that makes us say that the product is indeed a creative product. Or we can say that the product is creative when for example you take a jar, you take several rocks, you place them in the jar and allow some liquids to flow inside the jar, through the rocks that you have placed and you offer this potential gift to one of your friends. This I say it's a creative gift. Not necessarily an interesting gift, but definitely a creative one and an unique one.
But if you want to offer to a person that will soon turn 80 a jar like that, let me tell you that it will not be appreciated. This type of gifts are offered only to persons that you know that are capable of understanding them, no matter how weird they might be.
If you would offer a present like this to me, I would appreciate your effort of creating it, because I'm sure that you have taken one hour or even more of your time to create that product for me, and this means more than the product itself.
If you want to be creative when offering a present to a person that is 80, you can get some photos with that person and try to integrate them in a blanket that you manufacture by yourself. Or integrated them on a mug, in other words, personalize the mug that you want to offer. Or with the photos that you have and with the short videos, you can create a video and from time to time, insert also some comments made by the friends of the people that is 80. The comments should contain words of thanking that person that was born and that she or he was always next to you.
This would be an emotional gift and every person that would receive a gift like this will get very, very emotional. Think that it is a real honor to receive good words from your people when you are 80. It is important when you're 50 as well, but when you are 80, it is even more important, taking into account that your life will soon be ended.
The birthday gifts for older moms should be different from the gifts that you offer to your girlfriend or to a new mom. Nevertheless a woman will be always impressed by a bouquet of flowers, preferable her favorite flowers, and by a bottle of perfume wearing her special fragrance.
On redenvelope.com, you can find all sorts of products for everyone. It is enough to enter this site and you will see the customer favorites, from which you can choose your own. I will start with the first product that is included in this list, which is the year of wishes candles, a product that has received 5 stars from 167 customers. The price of this product that contains many multicolored candles is of $69.95. Then we have the leather bound story of a lifetime, which is great for a person that is 50 or 60. This product is a little bit more expensive, but nevertheless you can buy your mom a present like this, because it is $79.95.
If your mom is going to turn 50 or 60 or 70, the next present is perfect for such a birthday: the milestone birthday pendant necklace, which has received 5 stars from 88 customers and which has a starting price of $49.95. I see that the candles are very appreciated on the redenvelope.com site and I am not surprised because among candies and flowers, the women also love the candles that smell nice. This is how I have made an introduction to the next product that I will present: the 100 good wishes candles set, a very popular present among the redenvelope.com users. This product costs $29.95 and it allows you to see what are the words towards which you tend. Let me put it another way, so that you will be able to understand. The casing of the candle contains a lot of words that seem engraved, although they may not be engraved, but only imprinted, words like: peace, grace, inspiration, intelligence, individuality, glee, magic, longevity, triumph, happiness, perseverance, altruism, resourcefulness, delight, kindness, commitment, honor, devotion, love, gratification, benevolence, health, courage, artistry, balance, bravery, enchantment, patience, imagination, stability, comfort, humor, calm, wish, confidence and others.
This is the perfect gift that I will love to receive on my birthday. Let me make a clarification. You will not receive 100 candles, but only 2 candles that contain 100 good wishes both of them. Each candle measures 3 inches per 6 inches. The burning time for each of these candles is the 95 hours.
The best present that you can offer to your mom on her anniversary or her birthday, is definitely a present that you created. Your mom will be proud of your creativity and she will be at her turn, proud with the gift, in front of all her friends.
If your mom likes to write, here is an idea that I have found on the about.com site, at the family crafts category. You can create a decorative tabletop or desk container, using some tin cans or some bathroom tissue rolls. The name of the product on other site I have mentioned before is craft stick vase or pencil holder. It seems like the pencils that are stored inside this vase, are in their own location, which is bordered by some woods. It is like the pencils have their own home.
If you are a girl and you search for the best idea that will allow you to create a homemade gift for your mother, the next idea that is presented is an excellent one: I'm talking about a crocheted greeting card bowl. The greetings cards are placed at the sides of the bowl; they are placed in position by some elements that are… as you can imagine by now, crocheted. Instead of greeting cards, you can use pictures with you and your mother, since you were a little girl and until the present day. Your mom is going to love this. And now, another idea stroke my mind; there are some sites online, which allows you to transform one of your pictures, by maintaining the same resolution of the picture, into a personalized blanket. This is just another idea, if you don't like blankets, you are not obligated to use this idea.
Now we have some jewelry pieces. It can be fun creating hearings for the persons that you love. Always use plastic materials and is the situation imposes it, use only metals that you know. I know that some of the metals transmit negative energies, so I would not use a metal about which I do not know of thing like: who used the metal before and for what purpose. It may be harder to find out if the metal was used for a certain activity or for another, but not impossible. If you buy gold or silver from trusted sellers, they are obligated to tell you the route of the metal from its extraction until the present day.
A mom has the right to be left alone when she wants to read. For example, some of the best books that are written for women and for men alike are the motivational books. I will present two books that are very interesting and that I have found on Amazon.
I have to say even from the start that I did not read not a single one of them, but I will search for them on the Internet and see if there is an online version of them. I have to say that I live in Europe and it is difficult sometimes to buy products from Amazon.com, simply because the destination country is not among the countries that are in the list. And I also don’t live in the United Kingdom, because there is also the amazon.co.uk site. So, I will try my luck on the Internet.
This is what you should do as well, if you live in countries where some of the Amazon products cannot be delivered. “A place of Yes” the book, presents 10 rules of getting everything that you want from life and during your lifetime. You don’t have to be born again to reach the fulfilment. This is possible and in this lifetime. You will discover how this is possible with the help of Bethenny Frankel, the author, and of Eve Adamson, the contributor. The basics are simple, you just have to find your truth and act on it. I am not sure what finding your truth means, this is why I will search for this book online. Maybe they can enlighten me. Treat every person and every thing that happens in your life as the moment when you have to demonstrate how good you are. Who knows, maybe in a moment like this your life will change in better. Say that you already own the things that you want. It is like when you are sick and you say: “I am healthy!”
Tyrese Gibson says that we are the only barriers in reaching our happiness. So, try to get you out of your own way, by reading the book: “How to get out of your own way”. The title of the book seems promising. Definitely a book that I will search for online. This is a book that received only positive reviews from all those who read it. This is a true motivational book. It means that the book really helped them in their problems.
The best birthday presents are not only something they birthday kid likes, it is also something the gift giver likes. The perfect birthday present is an expression of our affection and care for the recipient but at the same time it is an expression of ourselves. That is why if you want to get a cool birthday gift for your mom you should take her into consideration but also yourself. Put thought and sentiment into it and let your creativity flow and you’ll have a great gift.
A mother will love any gift that comes from her children, there is no doubt about that, but there are some differences of reactions to gifts. She will love a box of chocolates and a bouquet of flowers because it shows you haven’t forgotten her birthday. But a discreet silver necklace with a photo locket that holds a photo of the two of you will not only make her feel special it will also make her weep with joy.
Every woman has a minimum of make-up they carry around with them wherever they go be it mascara and eye shadow or lip gloss and blush. So really cool birthday gift for your mom would be a small make-up bag that fits in her purse, it is a great practical gift that will also remind her of you every time she looks into her bag. If you are a crafty person make it yourself fitting to your mother’s tastes. If not you can buy one that you know she will like.
Moms have spent their lives caring for their families and on their birthday it is the perfect occasion to make them the center of attention, to make them feel special. Spend the whole day with your mother doing all the things you both enjoy. You could go together on a shopping spree, have lunch at her favorite restaurant, and go see a movie or an art exhibition. Go to a wellness center or a spa together and spend the whole day pampering yourselves.
Recreating a feeling or a memory is in it a gift of itself and being able to do that with an item is great thing. If you know of a thing your mother holds dear in her memory but doesn’t have it anymore, try to get it for her. For instance if the first birthday gift she remembers getting is a tin carousel try to find one that looks similar to that one. Maybe she had a porcelain doll she lost; you could find one that looks the same. Maybe she loved the sound her mother’s pearls made when she embraced her but the necklace got lost during a move, you could find an identical necklace if you just look hard enough.
The best thing to remember if you want to get a cool birthday gift for your mom is to be creative and plan ahead. A great gift will make her as well as you very happy and will become a dear keepsake or a treasured memory.11
Show your mom how special she is to you with an awesome birthday present. Mothers will devote most of their lives to their family and children and while we should treat them every day with the respect and love they deserve when their birthday comes around we should be able to make that extra mile and show her how unique she is. The 50th birthday is an important celebration in every woman’s life so think of a great present that will make her happy.
Mother’s usually love any kind of gift as long as it is from you but that doesn’t mean you should just give her a last-minute gift like a card and a box of chocolates. Plan carefully and most importantly in advance. Think about what your mother likes and what interests her, maybe she mentioned something during your talks. If you think hard enough you will surely find a great 50th birthday gift for your mom.
Make your mother feel more feminine with an elegant piece of jewelry. If your budget allows it you can get her a pearl necklace, a diamond bracelet or a pair of chic earrings. If you are short on cash you could get her birthstone jewelry like rings and bracelets. Surprise her with a handmade gift that you made with love like flower brooches made out of wool or a pair of earrings with beads made out of newspaper.
Try to stay away from awfully practical gifts like a mashing machine or a microwave oven, although useful these gifts will hardly convey the right message. But this doesn’t mean you can’t give her a practical and at the same time elegant home accessories as a gift, you just have to buy it in accordance to your mother’s tastes and needs. For instance your mother loves to do crossword puzzles in bed then you can get her an elegant night stand lamp. If she loves a nice glass of wine with her meal you can get her a beautiful set of wine glasses and a decanter.
Show her that you listen to her and pay attention to her hobbies and make a perfect 50th birthday gift for your mother. If she loves art and would like to try it out herself you could get her some art supplies and painting lessons. For a mother who enjoys to read get a rare edition of her favorite book or a comfortable armchair in which she can read. If she loves gardening get a set of tools, a herb garden or a beautiful potted plant and make a great 50th birthday gift to your mom .
Great gifts don’t have to be material; often times the most cherished memories are experiences. Treat your mother to a day at the spa or book a short vacation for her and your father. Make her day all about her and get her breakfast in bed. After that you could go shopping together, go see a movie and visit museums. Finish the day with an elegant dinner at a nice restaurant.11
Parents are awesome, they are always there for you with unconditional love and support and they will always enjoy your company. If you want to give something back you can make a little effort and go an extra mile when you buy or make a birthday gift for your parents. Of course they will love anything you will get them, but that doesn’t mean you should just get it over with a bottle of wine and a keychain. Put a little thought into it and make the present special and thoughtful.
Most parents are practical orientated and something that will help them around the house will make any parent happy. You could get your mother a Roomba, a fun little robotic vacuum cleaner that cleans the house on its own. For your father you could get a high end tool kit and a monogrammed leather tool belt.
Table wear and kitchen accessories are not only practical but they can also be elegant and classy. Get your parents a set of new china table wear. Wine glasses and a wine decanter will make any wine lover happy. Tea pots and tea cups come in a variety of designs and are a beautiful gift for a mother who enjoys her afternoon tea. Elegant aprons, collections of cookbooks, herb gardens, fondue sets or espresso makers all make a great birthday gift for parents.
Entertainment related presents are great because they will give you the opportunity to show your parents you know their tastes and interests. For a father who enjoys games you could get a collection of classic games like cards, chess, dominoes and so on. Or you could get him a new board game you know he’ll enjoy like The Settlers of Catan or Trivial Pursuit. Get your mother a book she always wanted or an art album. Put together a DVD box set with all the movies you know they enjoy.
Personalized jewelry and accessories also make a thoughtful and beautiful birthday gift for parents. Be it bracelets, rings, earrings, or necklaces for your mother or cuff-links, tie-pins, or watches for your father. With a message or name engraved on them you can make each gift unique and suited for your parents. Engraved jewelry boxes are both elegant and practical and make a great present for parents who already have a lot of accessories.
Nothing keeps a memory more alive than a photo and parents love photos of you or of you together with them. Frame a photo they hold dear or make a painting after a photo they like. For a unique and sentimental gift put together a scrapbook and buy a memory voice recorder. While you put together the scrapbook you can tag each item and record a message for it, this way your parents can listen to the stories behind the photos while going through the scrapbook.
One of the gifts parents will always enjoy is time spent with you, so make time and take them out to dinner or a picnic.11
