How well do you know your mother?
It was the question a department store saleswoman did to a young customer looking for a Mother’s day gift. And many times we run to shop looking for the perfect mother’s day present without thinking about what she really likes as the young man did.
May, is the busiest month of the year for retailers who fill their stores with articles for Mother’s day, and it is also a busy month for everybody searching for the gift mom will love. But before getting the gift of her dreams, let us think about the qualities and uniqueness that make her so especial and different to every other mom; then we can choose right when shopping for her.
According to The Rise of The Real Mom, moms’ favorite items come from clothing, personal care, cosmetics, and jewelry; at this point, people think of this like obvious but when we shop for mom, frequently we oversee these facts because we see our mom just as the mom.
Perhaps more importantly, they want to be real women, with interests that include and extend beyond their roles as caretakers, providers, and nurturers. (The Rise of Real Mom)
Then we got a list of the moms’ preferences by importance,

Consider mom’s style and taste for choosing her a gift
The study shows that Personal Care is at the top of the list for moms of ages 18 to 29, 45 to 59 and 60 and up, and for moms between 30 to 44 years is Clothing. Getting a gift for mom may include bath & body, cosmetics, fragrances, hair care, spa, nutrition, skin care, vitamins, organic food baskets, flowers, massages, gym subscription or yoga sessions. For clothing consider her style from dresses, blouses, skirts, pants, shorts, shoes, purses, belts, active wear, swim suits, beach clothing, and other accessories.
No matter what age mom is, she will love a piece of Jewelry
Pick her style by looking at other pieces of jewelry she already owns and but not let all the rush and excitement of this holiday make you forget that the gift she always expects is your love and time, the two most valuable things no money can buy.
