Mothers Day Gift


Every year I try to get my mom something extra nice for mothers day.
I usually have something picked out weeks in advance.

This year i have absolutely no idea what to get her!
and im totally BROKE!

I have to check how much is available in my account, but i know its not much.

I was hoping to get her something from Hermes that she had her eye on for sometime.

Id be lucky law i can get her something from the coop! (ok its not that bad, but its bad!)

I usually buy my aunts something every year too, something small but meaningful.

I'm all out of ideas!

Help!

What are you getting your mamas for mothers day?

ive already given it to her when i saw her last week and told her not to unwrap up until mothers day since im not gonna be with her on the Actual day

i got her a set of her favourite scents,creams and candles from Jo Malone..

i would recommend it =D not only do they smell beautiful but they make great gifts because theyre so beautifully presented and wrapped!

not really that great if youre broke though, hmm =/

I am also out of ideas.. Usually my sisters and I would all get her something nice but we are all out of ideas ehehehe

I would suggest you get her Arabic perfume sets (the ones that usually comes with incense/bukhoor, mubkhar, oud, perfume and such.. Their prices are KD40 and up... if I am not mistaken...

Flower bouquet and dinner out with the family?!

I will keep on checking your post for others' ideas cuz I am really stuck

mmmh, well you could try gettin something thats handmade, you know those are typically inexpensive and sweet

March 18, 2009 at 9:45 AM  

it's not the material that is important, it's the love behind it.

you need to give her part of yourself, something she knows is special for you.

teddy bear, a sunglasses, a bag, a shoe, a hand-made gift.

a poem with a rose would be nice.

p.s. give her after mother's day :P

I don't get my mother anything on mother's day. I find it a silly holiday.

March 18, 2009 at 9:50 AM  

I will not be in Kuwait, but something cute will be delivered to her as a surprise (gift box with 2 dozens of cupcakes decorated with hearts, flowers and her initials), and I will give her Money when I come back! Because she never likes what I get her LOL

From Qatar I got her beautiful things from Ferragamo’s new collection; she didn’t like it!!! thoqha 3aksee! walla te3abt :p

I NEVER thought u'd be a believer in mother's day! i see u as a "spoil-ur-mom-all-year" type of person :P ok i agree on the SPA VOUCHER coz moms like to be pampered! i bought my mom stuff from hermes and prada when i was in london and already gave her the presents coz she hates moms day :}

March 18, 2009 at 10:57 PM

Last year I blew up black and white pictures of my nephews and a few of my mom as a baby and framed them. It was cheap and thoughtful. She loved it.

This year my siblings and I are throwing her a party with all her friends.

If you're out of money, how about renting one of her favorite movies and watching it with her? Or make her a nice dinner at home. Moms don't care if you spend money on them - they like spending time with you.
