3 simple and thoughtful gifts that will make your mother smile.
9th of May is a special day in our lives, either we celebrate our mother or we are mom and celebrate ourselves, either way Mother’s day is a beautiful tradition. We celebrate a woman who gave us life, who nurtured us, cared, supported and loved… and there is no other love like that, I realized it only when I become a mother myself. In my short article I wanted to share with you few last-minute and easy gifts that you can surprise your mother with and she will surely appreciate them a lot. Sometimes it feels nearly impossible to properly express the love and appreciation, but often simple gifts are just ideal. I will not write about the flowers, as this is a must, but flowers should be accompanied by something more, so let’s see my propositions.
I. Best Swiss Chocolates from Confiserie Sprüngli.
When it comes to chocolate there is a lot of choice in the market, but I advise you to go for the best quality and also to buy something that you know that your mother loves. I trust Sprüngli since I live in Switzerland, all the sweets are so delicious and beautiful, not to mention the packaging. They represent Swiss chocolate tradition since 1836 and create delicate chocolate creations since generations. For the 9th of May and Mother’s day they created some special products that will make moms smile.
I. Chocolate Heart rasberry 150 g – Creamy white chocolate, refined with fresh raspberries.
II. Truffes Rosé&Noir – Finest dark truffles with a sophisticated core of Perrier-Jouët Blason Rosé Champagne.
III. Amandes au Chocolat 250g – Caramelized almonds coated in fine dark chocolate.
IV. Luxemburgerli Champagner Rosé – Delicate white chocolate ganache and a sparkling note of Rosé champagne.
II. Homemade Sweets made with love
It’s lovely to prepare a homemade cake for mom, but we don’t always have a time for it in our busy lives. The best option is to buy a lovely dessert and my choice for your would be a Floral Brownie from Julied, Cake Design. A Geneva based small business run by Julie, who practice “bake with love” motto and experimenting with new recipes.
Floral Brownie cake is created especially for the Mother’s day and it’s not only delicious (made with a local ingredients) but also beautiful and original.
III. A Luxury Skincare
I always believe that a good skincare is the ultimate gift for every woman. It’s a little bit more difficult to buy mom a make-up unless you know exactly her favorite products and colors, but with a good skincare you can’t go wrong. I recommend to buy something more sophisticated, a cream or a serum that will give her a pleasure when she will apply it and will see a powerful results.
Helena Rubinstein has a luxury skincare lines for mature women that are packed with wonderful ingredients, they have beautiful packaging and they are in more luxury range.
It is an icon line. Concentrated in millions of native vegetal cells, Powercell Skinmunity strengthens skin even in the most hectic lifestyles.
