Does your mother share certain traits with a few popular celebrities? Is she a diva? Does she have a huge funny bone or just loves to look glamourous at any time? If choosing a gift for her seems daunting, just take a quick look at our suggestions for Mother’s Day that will take the stress out of wondering what she could possibly need.
If Mom is like Jennifer Lopez
For your mom, going glam isn't a look reserved for date night it's her everyday style. Whether she's shopping for matching designer outfits for her and the children or planning the party of the year, she spoils her kids as much as she spoils herself. Your gift should spoil her too! Here’s what to get her: Pendant necklace with matching earrings, high heeled shoes, an enamel bangle, sequinned top, shades, a hobo purse, designer jeans or a cosmetic case.
If Mom is like Jessica Alba
Your mom knows that the earth is precious and belongs to future generations. Her motto of “reduce, reuse, recycle” has been repeated more times than “because I said so!” She loves instilling these same values in you and those around her. Give her a gift that assists her in making the world a more sustainable place to live. Here’s what to get her: Scented wax candles, glassware, a cotton robe, picture frame made from natural materials, a craft book that shows how to recycle EVERYTHING, a tie dyed scarf, an energy saving slow cooker, cocoa butter, organic soaps and cotton handbags.
If Mom is like Beyoncé
After nine long months of preparation & anticipation, her bundle of joy finally arrived! While she loves (almost) every sleepless minute, you know that she is going to need support throughout the marathon. Make sure you give her a gift that will leave her feeling refreshed and prepared for the incredible year ahead. Here’s what to get her: Fancy stroller, Pilates and Postnatal Yoga DVD, a designer diaper bag, a cuddle pillow, teething necklace, baby keepsake kit, silver multi heart charm bracelet, the Baby Owner’s Manual, a digital camera and have a friend cook dinner for her whenever she needs it.
If Mom is like Tina Fey
There's no question, your mom has a “Type A” personality in both her professional and parenting styles. She flawlessly balances her working mom role with a smile. Choose a gift to applaud her ambition or give her a reason to stop and relax for once!

If Mom is like Paula Deen
Your mom knows her way around the kitchen! There is no such thing as a little get-together with her, whether it's Sunday supper, a picnic in the park or an extravagant dinner party. She makes it happen with a smile on her face that spreads to everyone around her. A gift for the kitchen or dinner table will most definitely keep her smiling. Here’s what you can get her: A set of stylish cooking aprons, personalised recipe binder, fancy drinking set (pitcher and glasses), picnic basket, Kitchen Aid Stand mixer, casserole baking dish, cookie jar, buffet server and whatever cookbook she wants!
If Mom is like Michelle Obama
Your mother is as classic as apple pie. Whether attending a PTA meeting, chaperoning a school outing, or tending to a scraped knee, your mom can handle anything life throws her way. Give her something just for her — from a classic accessory to something pampering, it's time to spoil her as much as she has spoiled you! Here’s what you can get her: Heart shaped necklace & pendant, silk pyjamas, bathtub caddy, birthstone ring and matching bracelet, personalised handbag, a family tree sculpture and an iPad.
