3 Perfect Mother's Day Gifts to Show How Much You Appreciate Her

Finding the Perfect Mother's Day Gift

With mother's day on the horizon, it's time to think of the perfect gift to show your mother how much you appreciate her. While we should show love to our mothers every day, Mother's Day is the time to remind them how much we recognize their importance in our lives. Struggling to find a gift? We at Buchan's Kerrisdale Stationery have got you covered! After asking many of our staff (who are mothers themselves!), I compiled a list of gifts and ideas that we know your mother will appreciate. Before I start, I would like to share a personal anecdote about my mother. After moving away to a new city, I truly understood the sacrifices that our mothers make for us. I could always count on her help when I was struggling with classes, or needed help with medication when I was bedridden with a fever. Our mothers are always there for us no matter what and to all mothers: Thank you for everything you do! All of these gifts are available at Buchan's Kerridsdale Stationery in Vancouver, Canada. Shop online, or come anytime from 9-6 Monday-Saturdays, and 11-5 on Sundays and we'll be sure to help you choose a perfect gift!

#1 - A Personalized Card

I believe that a card is essential during any celebration occasion; furthermore, a card shows the effort that you put into a gift. I always make sure to purchase a funky, creative card along with my gift. Add in a personalized message, and you have a perfect complement to your gift! Everybody I asked said the same thing: A card is the most thoughtful, appreciative part of a gift, it shows that you went the extra mile, and put effort into a thoughtful gift. Buchan's Stationery offers a vast variety of personalized cards that will be sure to put a smile on your mother. After all, every mom deserves a card.

#2 -  Scented Accessories

Michel Design Works's Scented soap bar and foaming soap with Papyrus Mother's day greeting card A scented candle can be one of the most personal gifts you can get your mother. Is there a certain aroma that you associate with your mother? For me, it's the beach. I have countless great memories of going to the beach with my mother, spending hours playing in the sand. While I know that I will not always be at home, by purchasing my mother a scented candle, we can always share these memories together, no matter the distance between us. Buchan's wide assortment of scented candles, soap bars, and toiletries will satisfy your search for any scent that brings you closer with your mother, even when you're far apart.

#3 - A Customized Framed Picture

Another personal gift. A picture frame is a fantastic part of a perfect DIY gift you can make for your mother. First, purchase a frame. (Buchan's Stationery sells this too!) Second, find a photo of you and your mother. Third, print your photo to the dimensions in which it fits the frame. Fourth, place your photo into the frame, and voila! This is by far one of the favourite gifts I've ever given to my mother. The most important aspect of a gift is the thought, and the framed picture is a memory. Every time you look at the photo, you get taken back to the moment that was captured. This is a perfect gift that you can share with your mother. Before I left for university, I bought my mother a framed picture of us dancing at my graduation. Now I know, that even when I'm not around, we can always share that moment.

A Final Thought

It is always the thought that counts. As long as you make sure that you put effort into your gift, and show your appreciation to your mother, you will have an amazing Mother's Day! I hope you are all doing well during this tumultuous time, and I wish you all the best. To all mothers, thank you for everything you do!
