Top 5 Mothers Day Practical Presents
When it comes to buying Mother’s Day Presents it is very easy to fall in the old trap of spending a lot of money on things that and let us be honest here, do not do very much. Time and again we choose the easy option of flowers that wilt and die, chocolates, that people probably do not want, will not eat half of or do not like very much, or novelty gifts that will quickly be discarded and left on the shelf to gather dust for many years to come. However, this year’s Mothers Day presents can be different. You can choose to buck old trends and to actually buy gifts that are practical and useful!
Choose Mothers Day presents from the list of Top 5 Mothers Day practical presents and you can be sure you are giving a gift that will be used in everyday life and that can act as a constant reminder to your mum of how much you love and appreciate her.
1) Cloth Cat Towel Holder
It can be hard to find practical Mother’s Day Presents that are also pretty, will not break the bank, are suitable for cat lovers (and cat haters) and (more so) will appeal to someone with a quirky sense of humour! If this is what you are looking for, then this is the Mothers Day present for you! The cloth cat towel holder has a strategically placed ‘grip hole’ that will certainly make you smile when you hang a towel or dish cloth in it. Suitable for the bathroom or the kitchen, the Cloth Cat Towel Holder won gift of the year in 2007 and can certainly be classed under ‘practical Mothers Day presents’, as well as unusual, quirky and very funny!
2) Flower Power Mum Kneepad
If your mum has green fingers and you are looking for gardening related Mothers Day presents, then this might just be up your street. Ridiculously cheap, but very practical, the Flower Power Mum Kneepad is an essential accessory for those who love to garden. It will keep your old mum’s knees spick and span, as well as providing the old dear with a much needed extra bit of padding when she is doing her weeding! The Flower Power Mum Kneepad can be wiped clean really easily and it is easily stored. Plus, every time your mum does a spot of gardening she will think of you!
3) The Slanket – Lavender Pink
The Slanket is one of those Mothers Day presents that you may have to consider buying two of, because once you see your mum all snugly and cosily wrapped up in one on the sofa with a good book or the television remote in hand, you will want one of your own! This fleecy blanket has been fantastically designed to keep you warm, whilst allowing you to keep your hands free so you can get on with important activities – such as tea or wine drinking, biscuit nibbling, or channel surfing. It is practical, it is pretty and it is cosy – a perfect Mothers Day gift all round!
4) Cinema Trip For Four Gift Pack
If your mum loves going to the cinema, then this really is one of those practical Mother’s Day Presents that will get good use! The cinema, much like most things in life, is getting more expensive with every trip, so why not treat your mum to the Cinema Trip For Four Gift Pack. With four tickets in the pack she can go alone four times, or if you are lucky, even take you with her once or twice!
5) Faux Suede Wash Bag – Photo Gift
If you want to buy some Mothers Day presents that are both personal and practical, then this is the ideal gift. A gorgeous Faux Suede Wash Bag, measuring 19.5cm high, 26cm wide and 7cm deep and available in either cream or black, can be made all the more special with a photograph of your choice (which is then professionally printed on it). Imagine your mother’s joy when she opens the present and finds a picture of her grandchildren on it! Always being able to carry them around will be a great treat for her! Or, be adventurous and choose a picture of her when she was young, or a funny picture of your dad, or even a complete family photo!
If you think the wash bag is a smashing idea, but would like something smaller then opt for a canvas photo bag or a make up bag. If you think something bigger would be more practical then a tote bag or beach bag should do the job. You could even push the boat out and get the full set! Practical and beautiful, as well as sentimental and thoughtful, personalised gifts certainly do make perfect Mothers Day presents.
