Gift Ideas for Mom this Mother's Day

How do you speak mom's love language? Words of affirmation? Acts of service? Receiving Gifts? Quality time? Or physical touch? Only you can discover that.

My mom and I live a thousand miles away since we move to the US. For me, giving gifts best expresses my love and appreciation for her. Don't get me wrong, we do have a lot of misunderstandings too. Yes, I'm talking about a lot! But love is never out of the equation.

How to Pick the Right Gift Mom will Surely Love

I would say, know thy mom's style. Period! Haha! I'm sure you do. She is your mom after all. 

  • On Shoes - My mom prefers comfort over style. I would never understand why, but she likes it that way. Haha! So don't buy shoes in your style. Chances are she won't like it unless you have the same taste. Remember, she will be the one wearing it, not you.

  • On bags - My mom prefers bags with zippers or locks. Many thieves and pickpocketers roam the streets of Cebu. This makes a lot of sense especially that her business is located in the busiest shopping district of Cebu.

  • On wallets - These days big wallets tend to be the most efficient of them all. It can hold all the cards and whatnot. So yes, go get one for mom too.
