Why your Mom Likes to Get Gifts

By: Anne Harvester

Mother's Day is coming up soon, but maybe you are not sure what you could get her that will surprise and thrill her. What you are trying to figure out is what is it about a gift that makes it special for your mother to receive, or in other words, why does your Mom like to get gifts?
There are several reasons that you can consider in your quest for the best Mother's Day gifts. One is that she will feel special when she knows that you have remembered her. This is a big deal in our fast-paced society, because it takes time to find a suitable gift for your mother.
Another reason why your mother likes to receive gifts is that she enjoys the surprise that happens when she opens the gift and looks inside. We all want pleasant surprises when it comes to gifts, so one way to make sure your Mother's day gift is a hit is to focus on the things that she likes.

Is your mother a gourmet cook? You could put together several of the food-related items that she would like together in gourmet Mother's Day gift baskets. If she enjoys the food of a particular region of the country, for example, your gift basket could focus on items from there. Let's say she loves creole cooking from the South. A gift basket with this creole theme could contain lovely items such as different rices, bottles of spicy pepper hot sauces, and jars of creole rubs for meats and poultry. A cookbook containing recipes from that area of the country would make a fantastic addition for a Creole-themed gift basket for your Mom.
Along with the pleasant surprise factor, you will also want to add in the unique aspect of the gift. She will flip when she opens your gift if it is personalized specifically for her and her particular tastes and likes, and this will show her that you care. Perhaps your mother has a hobby that would become the focus of a customized gift basket. If she is a gardener, you could include such items as garden gloves that really fit and do the job well, along with sunglasses and some fragrant sunscreen. Along with these, you might want to be on the lookout for beautiful small glazed ceramic pots in your Mom's favorite colors as another thoughtful item to include in your one-of-a-kind basket. If she is into vegetables, you could get her some unusual seeds of beautiful vegetables, such as runner beans that flower in colorful blooms, or even beautiful lettuces that come in deep red and variegated colors. This personalized touch is why your Mom loves your gifts.
