The Perfect Gift For Her
How many times a year do you buy your mom a gift? Let’s count and see….there’s her birthday, Mother’s Day and Christmas. At least three times a year, right? There may be other traditions and celebrations that may warrant a gift as well. So how do you always know what to get mom for these special occasions?
If your mom is anything like mine then she’s a tough cookie to shop for. After giving so many gifts throughout the year, my mother-in-law pretty much has it all.
When you find yourself racking your brain over what gift to get mom, that’s when you know it’s time to keep it simple.
Here are a few guidelines to use when determining what to get mom or anyone else you may be looking for a gift for.
Is it thoughtful?
When shopping for someone else remember to keep that person’s taste/like/interest in mind. What is their favorite color? Are they loyal to a particular brand? How often do they talk about a certain subject or topic?
Try not to base the gift around something that you like instead of the person you’re giving it to. Unless, of course, you have similar shopping habits.
Is it useful?
Some of the best gifts are those that are actually usefully to the recipient. A new set of pots and pans when mom already has 2 sets probably won’t get used much. They’ll either sit in a box somewhere in the garage or get returned for something more useful.
But if mom has been using a phone with a cracked screen for a while then a new phone would definitely be a top priority. Wouldn’t want her slicing her finger on the broken screen, now would you?
Is it necessary?
Another important factor to consider when thinking of what to get mom or someone else is whether it is truly necessary. Not all gifts fit this bill. Flowers, candy and cards are not always necessary….and there’s certainly nothing wrong with those items as gifts. But when you give something that is necessary it makes the gift that much more special and meaningful.
For example, a new pair of reading glasses from the local drugstore would be necessary if her old pair were broken or lost and needed replacing. Not being able to see close up would not only be a nuisance but a hindrance to a good quality of life.
