The perfect gift for Mother’s Day

Surprise mummy dearest with a gift that will tug at her heartstrings.

WHY do we need a commercial reminder to get something for our mothers?

There’s no stopping you if you want to express your appreciation and love every day, right?

That being said, you might want to get her something extra special, so here are some gift ideas to help you out.

Light up mum’s life

DO something different by helping mum light up the home with Philips new, stunning range of myLightAccent range of home lighting accessories, guaranteed to make her coo in delight!

The Philips myLightAccent Vase is a chic and energy-efficient accessory that adds dimension to a simple floral arrangement. Also available are the Philips mylivingAccents Wish Candle and Intimate Candle, designed to last for 80 hours on a single battery charge. The candles let out warmth and a flicker, and light up when you give a gentle blow. How cool is that? In most kitchens at home, the mothers rule the roost and she can serve her yummy food on a Philips myLightAccentPlatter, that comes with a multitude of adjustable colours, and it’s tap washable, too. Prices range from RM59 to RM589. Available at Philips lighting branded stores and Harvey Norman nationwide.

Mum in-tech

MOTHERS play various roles and are sometimes wonderful agents of change who need to stay in touch with technology. To complement their many hats, Logitech has just the gift for the tech-savvy mum. The Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard Cover is now available for the iPad mini. Its clever 17.5cm design fits the mini perfectly and offers full-size keys for easy typing.

For something more practical, the Logitech Wireless Rechargeable Touchpad T650 is stylish and sophisticated, specifically designed to work with the Windows 8 touch interface.

If your mother is fond of music, the UE Mobile Boombox may just be her thing! An ultraportable speaker, it connects to a smartphone or tablet so music can be played. Active mothers who work out would delight in the UE 900 Noise-Isolating Earphones, which have been designed to sit comfortably in the ear for long stretches if she works out in the gym.

Prices range from RM259 to RM1,299. Available at all Logitech resellers (for more info, log onto facebook.com/LogitechMalaysia).

Looking pretty

THE smallest of gifts can mean the most. Poh Kong presents a selection of jewellery to fill mum’s heart with joy.

The Petals of Love collection features a set of ring and earrings that reflect a feminine floral design, with contrasting layers of rose gold and sparkling white diamonds.

In the Devotion collection, there’s a delightful ensemble of ring, pendant and earrings with elegant rose gold and diamonds.

Lastly, the Gourd of Luck & Longevity pendant made from serene jade and luscious yellow gold is said to bring good fortune and longevity, as it name suggests.

The Gourd of Luck & Longevity collection starts from RM1,888 onwards.

Available at Poh Kong, Poh Kong Gallery, Diamond & Gold, Diamond Boutique and Oro Bianco.

Cool jeans

IF your other half looks cool in jeans, go the extra mile and give her “jeans” to wear on her wrist too! Hublot offers the latest denim timepiece for mothers in the Big Bang Jeans Collection.

A can’t-afford-to-miss summer trend for 2013, the gals can now revel in this signature and timeless accessory, whatever their style may be.

Rocking collection

SELBERAN helps you to celebrate Mother’s Day with class as it introduces its Petit Rococo collection, as inspired by its Rococo Reimagined collection launched last year.

The 18th century ornate, decorative style featuring asymmetric compositions with natural motifs and sensuous curves is translated into a modern and elegant range of jewellery made in 18k white gold.

Comprising a necklace, ring and matching earrings, each piece is designed with five brilliant diamonds set on curvaceous lines – a tribute of our everlasting love to our mothers.

All dolled up

INSPIRED by Russian folklore, Swatch has created a set of five nested Matryoshka dolls with three Swatch watches hidden inside. Three is the magic number of these famous Russian dolls, which tell the story of three generations of women: a mother, her daughter, and her granddaughter – each one nested within her own mother. The nested set of five dolls come with three pretty girls hidden inside, each with a Swatch watch wrapped around her waist with the three model named as New Gent, Gent and Lady. Priced at RM650 per set. Available at all Swatch stores nationwide.
