SHOW your mother that you understand her as a woman, and not just a mother this Mother’s day. Tailor your gift to suit her interests and personality and think outside of the usual chocolate box.

Here are a few ideas for different “types” of mothers, the Competitive mom, the theatrical mom, the foodie mom and the DIY mom.

These are not the only “types” of moms out there but this is a great place to start.

The arty mom

South Africa’s arts scene is rich and diverse; your mom is absolutely spoilt for choice. If she is an artist herself, a clean canvas and new paintbrushes will have her ready to create her next masterpiece.

As an artist, she must have a love and appreciation for other artists’ work. Get her tickets for an upcoming exhibition.

The DIH (Do-It-Herself) mom

Your mom’s approach to life and everything in between is very hands-on, literally. She loves to create with her hands and DIY is her outlet. Give her a challenge and get her new supplies from a new glue gun, every Do-it-yourselfers favourite tool, to ribbon and buttons.

Challenge her with a new project like fixing an old trunk, or creating storage shelves or a magazine rack for your room.

The foodie mom

Your mom is a culinary expert, both with cooking and tasting. Treat her to a new taste experience at a restaurant specializing in international cuisine. Perhaps this new taste experience will inspire her in the kitchen. Introduce a new and exciting ingredient to her.

The adventurous mom

The adventurous mom loves living on the edge. She craves the rush and excitement that adventure brings. Tubing down the river. Wild 5 Adventures will provide all of the necessary equipment and will take you down the river with qualified guides.

Take the time to understand the type of woman you mother is, and treat her with what you know she will love this Mother’s day.
