What does your mum always tell you? “Pay attention to the details.” Or maybe, “It’s the little things that matter.” This Christmas, show her that you’ve really been listening all of these years. Get thoughtful gifts geared towards life’s small comforts, and make a big impact on her daily life.
One small gift that makes a huge difference in every busy woman’s life is a comfy pair of ladies slippers. They’re great for slipping on in the morning, or for switching into after a long day at work. If your mum has really girly style, cute ballet slippers with flower appliqués might suit her. Alternately, if your mum has a bit of a wild side, show her that you’ve noticed with a fun pair of leopard booties. And since slippers have a habit of mysteriously disappearing into the deep recesses of closets, consider getting her an extra pair or two. They’re not the largest or most expensive gift, but as your mum always says, “It’s the thought that counts.”
If you do want to go with a more lavish gift, look at silver watches for women. A silver watch, especially one with a decorative wristband, is a sophisticated cross between accessory and necessity. It’s perfect for appealing to mum’s practical side, and at the same time, lending a bit of luxury to her everyday look. The detail of a little silver on her wrist is goes with pretty much any style, and for such a small item, adds a big dose of classiness to an outfit.
Lastly, if you want to go into the realm of micro details, your mum might appreciate some collagen serum. A lifetime of laughs with you has probably given your mum a few fine lines around her eyes, and those tiny little lines can have a huge impact on a woman’s overall appearance. A high quality collagen serum will help minimise lines by keeping the skin moisturised and plump, so the wrinkles actually look like they have filled in. Youthful and rested looking eyes, such a small detail, really, help take years off of a woman’s face. Maybe you can go around introducing her as your big sister to add to the effect!
So what gifts will you give your mum this year? Remember, bigger isn’t always better. Go for the little details and go for quality, and your mum will appreciate your gifts all the more.
