Guilty as charged! My Mother’s Day 2018 post is late. Thanks in advance to the loyal readers of deidaablog for your patience. Members of Deidaaratti (Deidaa Mail Club) have been particularly kind to us this Mother’s Day. We are working overtime to meet the deadline. Deidaateam is busy wrapping the orders with handmade paper made out of fabric waste. Cards with handwritten messages are accompanying the gifts for mums across Australia. A few have left the shores for overseas destinations.
After all, Mother’s Day gifts must have that personal touch.
Most mums do not look for expensive gifts or elaborate rituals. They look for thought and action that reflect how well you know them and care for them.
How well do you know your mum? Is she a traveller or a crafter? Does she have green fingers? Is she a domestic goddess? Does she belong to the pearls and twin set club or is she the ’70s wild child? Here are a few tips that will help you ace Mother’s Day gift buying in 2018.
1. Mother’s Day Gift Ideas: The Intrepid Traveller
Your mum has roving feet. Gather the travel brochures you collected at the Travel Expo. Make sure the brochures are current and cover her dream travel destinations. Put them in one of Deidaa’s sturdy canvas tote bags and place it by her bedside. You have just provided your mum with hours of bedtime reading. A muslin bag with some lavender oil and sachets of her favourite infusion will add to the ambience.
2. Mother’d Day Gift Ideas: The Parisienne Femme Fatale
Your mum oozes Parisienne chic. Combine a Chantilly lace scarf with a bottle of her favourite eau de parfum. Voila! You have now secured your place as her fille preferee.
3. Mother’s Day Gift Ideas: The Constant Gardener
You mum has the proverbial green finger. You could not go wrong with one of Deidaa’s floral scarves. Inspired by Australian nature, these luxury wraps are designed in Deidaa’s Melbourne studios. You can select from a wide variety of designer silk scarves, available at Deidaashop.
4. Mother’s Day Gift Ideas: The Culture Vulture
Your mum loves ethnic clothing and accessories. Deidaa has an array of artisan made beaded clutch bags. Most of these party clutches have optional side slings and can be slung over the shoulder.
5. Mother’s Day Gift Ideas: The Sun Worshipper
Your mum is a beach babe and loves soaking up the sun. Deidaa’s beach cover-ups and cotton scarves will ensure she is sun safe. Sheer kaftans, front open tunics, pompom scarves… the choice is myriad at Deidaashop.
Don’t have your mum with you anymore? Do not despair. Shower your love on a mother figure who has inspired you. Someone who has made a difference in your life or in the lives of others. My mother – Deidaa of Deidaafashiononline – succumbed to an incurable illness. She was generous to a fault and I try to live up to her giving spirit by spreading a little bit of cheer every Mother’s Day.
