Mother’s Day, Mom’s birthday, or maybe it is just an ordinary day, but you want to show some appreciation and love to the beloved woman in your life with something. But the question is ... what to give her? Well, to be honest, it really depends on the person who receives the gift since everyone got different tastes. No worries, Unipop has made a guide and recommendations for you to use.
How to choose the perfect gift for Mom?
ResearchFirstly, to make sure your gift is “perfect” you must find out what your Mom needs or wants right now but don’t make it obvious. Ask people around her, notice what she’s interested in when going shopping with you, or even take a look at her social media site to look for what she is interested in. If you need, ask your Dad for a “lifeline”. Look close enough, and you will figure out something for sure! If not sure, ask your Mom what she wants. Yes, it does lose the surprise factor, but it is better than giving something that she’s already got. And remember no one knows your Mom better than herself so ask her if you don’t know what to get!
Don’t shop for yourselfYes, we understand the temptation when seeing something cute while shopping. It’s hard to ignore something eye-catching to you. But keep in mind that people's tastes are different. Maybe this is your thing, but nothing guarantee that this is the recipient's thing. Once you are done with the research, shop in the recipient’s shoes. This will ensure the gift is on the right track to becoming the “perfect one”.
Little things matterThe present itself is important but you know what is also important? It's the thing that comes with the present. It’s the note, the wrapping, and the way you give the gift! The gift is the message you want to send to the recipient but to emphasize it, a note filled with love is recommended. You can describe what the recipient can do with the item, or what makes you buy this gift. This show how much you care when buying the gift. If you want to make it extra fancy, send the gift with a greeting card. Pttsss, Unipop does have awesome cards for you to check out.
Another factor to consider is wrapping. Using your Mom favorite colors or patterns of her favorite things to wrap the item. Make the gift look personalized to her.
