In my last post I outlined some great Mothers Day Gift ideas but it’s pretty well impossible to tell you all the great Mothers Day gift ideas all in one post. If I did I’m sure you’d just get bored and wander off. Not to mention too many choices would confuse the hell out of everyone. Before I get to the crux of this post here is a great tip for Mothers Day. Take her out for lunch or dinner. After all, why should she have to go through all that cooking and cleaning on her special day.

If you’re from Adelaide I highly recommend Andre’s Cucina & Polenta Bar. I wrote a review about it and you can read all about it by clicking that link. If you’re not in Adelaide then I’m sure you can find a great local cafe or restaurant that your mum will love. Then imaging the look on her face after dinner when you present her with a Kindle Fire HD Tablet. As if the meal wasn’t enough,great mothers day gift idea this will really knock her socks off.

The Kindle Fire HD is different from the iPad that I wrote about in the post called Is An iPad A Good Gift For Your Aging Mother Or Father. The most important difference is that it is a lot easier to use and you’re not paying for all the bits and pieces that she probably will never use.

If she loves to read then this is definitely the gift for her. Not only can you adjust the font for her eyesight, the screen is designed so that it is easier to read than a book. Then there’s also the added benefit that she can download her favourite books and have them at her fingertips no matter where she goes. So much easier than having to carry all those books around with her.

I’ve imported some of the Kindle Fire HD specs from Amazon as well as some of the reviews so you can judge for yourself whether or not your mum will like it. I’m sure most mums will. Read the rest of this entry


Best Mothers Day Gift Ideas

As Mothers Day is just around the corner now is the time to start thinking about what is the best Mothers Day gift. This is especially true if you’re thinking of taking advantage of getting your gift online. I remember well when I was growing up how my mother would welcome any gift I’d give her as if it was the best gift in the whole wide world. Yep, she’d hug me profusely, tell me she loved me and then hang my poor attempt at art on the fridge.

Now that I am older and wiser I try to put a lot more thought in my Mothers Day gifts. The first thing I check out is the Swarovski site. This is because they always have a great selection to choose from and they’re always constantly adding to them. You can get anything from the cute Kris Bear, which would also make a fantastic Valentines gift, to the thank you mom charm set. This set includes the Mum Medal Charm, Flower Heart Charm, and Charmed Oval bracelet. Nothing shows mum how much you love her than the exquisite crafted crystal gifts available from Swarovski.

Speaking of charm bracelets, most mums would have one so why not a specialised charm that she would be proud to show off to everyone, just like she proudly displayed your paintings and stuff on the fridge.
The guys at Chamilia have a huge selection of charms that mum would absolutely love, many of which actually incorporate Swarovski Crystals. This just goes to show how dedicated they are to producing quality products that their customers absolutely love. You will even find some with a special message aimed directly at your mum.  :clap:

Something else that all mums like is flowers and the guys at teleflora have a huge range of flowers to choose from many of them specifically designed for Mothers Day. What I love about these guys is they have agents in most countries and so your flowers will be delivered fresh by on of their friendly neighbourhood florists.

OK, for the next gift idea I have to ask you, is your mum a coffee lover? If the answer is yes then I have a great best Mothers Day Gift idea for you. A Nespresso coffee machine! This is the perfect gift for your brothers and sisters to pool your resources together. Or then again, you could show them up by getting it all on your own  ;) Seriously though, my kids bought their mother one and she absolutely loves it. Heck, I love it and I treat myself to a cappuccino every night while my wife prefers a short black. What I love about my, sorry her, Nespresso is that it’s so easy to use. All I do is place in a coffee capsule and press a button and within minutes I have a hot cappuccino.

What if your mother isn’t into jewellery, coffee or flowers? I mean all mothers are different right? So, perhaps your mother would prefer a nice indulgent gourmet gift basket. The guys at GourmetGiftsBaskets have a site full of ideas for mothers day. Their site allows you to shop by occasion, category, theme or even price. I’ve checked out a few sites and I’ve found this one to be the easiest to navigate and having a whole heap of great ideas. Their gourmet baskets are sure to hit the spot and be loved by every mum.
