Freshen up mom’s space with unique planters

If you’re looking to cater to moms with a green thumb, offering them unique and captivating planters is a great way to go. You can explore imported options that come in playful shapes such as animals or geometric designs or opt for ones with vivid colours or intricate patterns. Not only do these planters infuse character and vivacity into any space, but they also offer a fresh haven for their cherished plants.


Spice up her cooking game with kitchen gadgets

If you want to surprise a cooking enthusiast mom with a special Mother’s Day gift, consider adding some unique and practical kitchen gadgets to your inventory – like an herb chopper, a garlic press, or some silicone cooking utensils. These additions to her culinary collection will not only make her cooking experience more efficient but also add a touch of novelty to her kitchen.


Luxurious bathrobes for every style

A plush and stylish bathrobe is a foolproof gift for moms who cherish relaxation and comfort. Not only does it feel like a warm hug from her loved ones, but it’s also perfect for those lazy Sunday mornings spent lounging around the house. With a variety of styles available, you can offer a range of options to your customers, making sure that they find the perfect bathrobe for their mom this Mother’s Day.


Picture-perfect frames

If your customers want to give their moms something sentimental, consider offering picture frames that are both stylish and affordable. Bonus points if the frames come with a pre-printed quote about mothers and their unconditional love. Your customers can add their own favourite photo of themselves with their mom, or leave the frame empty for their mother to fill with her own memories.
