We take a quick look at an interesting news article that quotes proud mothers who how and what they expect their sons and daughters to gift them this Mother’s Day. Aanchal Tuli of TNN makes the following interesting points based on interviews with several mothers as what they would prefer to receive and what not from their children on the occasion:
Before you start considering yourself to be the perfect son/daughter, think again. Our moms well know what their favorite stores have to offer for them, especially on this day. They’ve their smartphones, and feel very much confident about using them, too. But most of Delhi’s mom club still swears by its basic phones and gifting them a high end smartphone may not perhaps be the best of things this Mother’s Day. For example, Shubhra Dhingra explains definitely wouldn’t want her sons to gift me another high-tech gadget.”
Sure you and your overworked mom have discussed anti-ageing products and gym memberships in the past, but those are things she needs to do for herself. Trust us and give the five-day skin repair cream a pass, instead book her a day at her regular parlor. An anti-ageing product is such a rude way to say ‘mom, you’re old’. You can book her a day out at her regular beauty salon or, even better, a spa.
A mother of two, Ritu Dhingra, was quoted as saying, “My son knows that I’m conscious about the way I look and also that I take extra care of my skin. But if I still get an anti-ageing product from him as a gift, I’ll not be happy about it. I mean, that’s just completely bizarre and I don’t want the ‘you’re getting old mom’ look from my kids. I mean, who would?” Getting a gym membership for Mother’s Day is a terrible idea.
The point here is: In case your gift is going to make your mom a touch uncomfortable, you should think twice before presenting it or else you will face her wrath.
