Mother’s Day gifts are tough.
You want to give something that says “thanks for being a great Mum,” without resigning her to the kitchen by giving her a “helpful” cooking appliance, or making her feel old by gifting a knitting or crocheting kit! Clothes are tricky. Flowers are overdone. Chocolates imply no thought.
That’s why perfume is the perfect gift for really any woman. It shows thought, effort and taste on your part and if it’s the right perfume for her, she will be forever thankful. Why? Because scent is the strongest link to memory , so every time she smells it, she will be reminded of your love and appreciation.
