Each mother is a gem in her own way. The comfort of her arms is enough to make you forget your worries and her voice can brighten up your worst days. She gives you more love, joy and peace than anyone else in the world without expecting anything in return - unconditionally and selflessly. She's your soul healer, your closest confidante and mostly, she's the voice in your head that motivates you to become the best version of yourself.
I know you love her to bits but sadly, if you're a doofus like me who forgets to appreciate her existence from time to time, run towards her RIGHT NOW and indulge in a long, tight hug. For a mother who sacrificed so much to make you the person who you are today, she deserves something extremely special. Something beyond fancy earrings or an expensive dress but instead, deep and meaningful.
So, this Mother's Day, go ahead and pamper your mommy dearest with 8 of these appreciation gifts with oodles of love and care, and make her feel like a queen - not just today, but every single day.
Whether it's a trip to a grocery store, a relaxing vacation or just a long day at work - this super adorable, Chill Pills Tote Bag (Rs 599) will be the perfect travel companion for all her trips to carry everything essential. And if you've been the kind to constantly tell your mom to 'take a chill-pill' every time she overreacts over something - this bag will remind her to do so even when you're not around. *wink*
Do A Little Extra - When was the last time you went shopping with her? Even to a nearby store to buy a few groceries? Surprise her by volunteering to do so yourself and see that beautiful smile grow wider. In fact, spend a whole day with her - watch a movie, go to a salon or eat out in a nice restaurant. Trust me. This day will be worth remembering!
Look around you. Your mom built this beautiful little heaven that you call home. She worked hard in providing you with the best of comforts and treated you like a princess. Don't you think she deserves a space that smells just as warm and wonderful as she is? This charming Scented Round Pillar Candle Set Of 3 (Rs 1,299) with fragrances of lavender, lemon and jasmine will fill your house with a beautiful aroma and help her relax in the middle of a day or after a long day from work.
Do A Little Extra - For someone as hardworking as her, she deserves to be pampered like royalty. Instead of taking her to a salon, create an enchanting, spa-like experience at home itself. Decorate her room with these exotic scented candles, dim the lights and make her lie down, comfortably, on the bed. As she unwinds and relaxes, give her a nice head/body/shoulder massage with hot oil and let her achieve a state of zen with Asian tunes in the background and the fragrance of the candles uplifting her senses.
There's nothing more comforting than sitting with your mom after a long day at work or early in the morning with a steaming cup of chai or coffee and venting out your worries or your heart's deepest desires. People may come and go, but nobody can prove to be a better best friend to you than your own sweet mother. If you feel the same way, this Veere Forever Mug (Rs 499) will be perfect gift idea for your mom to show that she's the only 'Veere' you need in your life - forever.
Do A Little Extra - Make her a cup of tea/coffee yourself and serve it with her favourite cookies.

To reminisce some good ol' times, you can always bring out your old family or childhood albums for a trip down memory lane.
There's no denying that your mom is the REAL artist of your beautiful house. In fact, she's the one who turns your house into a home - every single day.

This unique gift is something that every mom will adore, undoubtedly. Mom's Kitchen Chalkboard (Rs 699) is a quirky little board that'll help your mom jot down everything - from the groceries that need to be brought, the dishes that need to be cooked or just simply those important things that are likely to be forgotten. Apart from being a fabulous kitchen decor, this helpful tool will finally end the timeless question, "Mom, what's for dinner?". From now onward, all you need to do is read the menu board instead of disturbing the 'master at work'.
Do A Little Extra - Use this little blackboard in a more special way. Write an inspiring quote or the qualities of your mother that you totally adore on it and let this be the first thing that she sees, every morning, as she enters the kitchen. You can even mention the choices that she'd love indulging on the days she won't be allowed to cook - for even the Chef deserves a break, every now and then.
How many times have we seen your mom work way too hard and exert themselves continuously without taking a break? Innumerable times, I'm sure.

Sit cosied in her arms while eating popcorn and immerse yourself in a world of classic Bollywood magic. This way, not only does she get to explore your gift but some of her favourite childhood memories too.
Try telling your mom if she'll have some guests over by the evening and within a few hours, you'll see your house brimming with flavourful aromas and your kitchen stacked with scrumptious dishes. And THIS, coupled with everything else that she aces so effortlessly in her daily life. Doesn't that make her a real-life wonder woman? Show her that it does by gifting her this cool and funky, Wonder Woman Apron (Rs 599) that's funny and special in its own way. Let it be a constant reminder of her wonderful abilities to make us laugh, smile, love and EAT (even when we're not so hungry. Hehe).
Do A Little Extra - Our wonder-woman never fails to make us something amazing and fill our tummies with oodles of love and flavourful goodness.
