Ever since I was a young girl, buying gifts on Mother’s Day was always such a challenge. Not because I didn’t love my Madam Mummy. It was because that I loved her so much, that I found it difficult to just buy anything off the rack for her.
I didn’t want to seem cheap and her gift as an afterthought. I didn’t want to buy her some knick knack just to have her display it prominently for everyone to see even if the gift was atrocious.
She has done so much for me and Big Sis, she put us both through school and university all on her own!
I wanted the very best for my Madam Mummy. Unfortunately, the very best sometimes requires a bit more than a thrifty 8 year old could afford.
Fast track 20 years, buying gifts for my Madam Mummy is still quite a challenge. This time it’s because the distance that separates us. She lives around an 8 hour flight away, so getting her a gift usually involves spending a heap of time shopping and surveying goods that will survive an 8 hour mail flight journey to her in one piece!
And then I remembered, one present I bought her, which she kept for the longest time was a beautiful hardcover home decor book. I can’t quite recall what I scribbled in my fancy crayolas on the front page of the book, but I remembered that she really liked the book.
So whenever I fly home for a holiday, I would remember to buy a few magazines or two for her to read. Some with fashion, some with gossip and some with really good home decorating tips!
So what better way for her to keep up with the latest fashion trends, or home decor tips then to provide her with an annual subscription to her favourite magazines?
So if you’re stuck on what to get your mother this Mother’s Day this year, I say, “Subscribe her to a magazine subscription!”
Magazine subscriptions are not only the perfect gift for your mother, they are relatively cheap and will last the whole year!
There are magazines to suit each and everyone’s taste.
There are magazines that speak of decorating trends, food, fashion and even travelling!
And you know what’s even more amazing?
This can all be easily done with a click of a mouse.
Too busy? No excuse!
Too hard? Are you serious?
Too expensive? There are discounts on selected titles!
And the best bit? You will have a chance to win an unforgettable trip to Italy! Yes, you read that right! A trip to Italy!!
So I think I will pay a visit to the website now and put in a subscription to my dear Madam Mummy.

If that doesn’t float your boat or tickle your dear mother’s fancy, what about a lifestyle magazine?

Is it wrong that I couldn’t see anything that would appeal to my mother, but got a Gourmet Traveller sub for myself? (Say no! I buy it every month and this is MUCH CHEAPER! Promise I’ll send you photos from Italy…)
It’s not wrong and I could so see myself doing the same thing! Hee hee hee.. and get one for “everyone” else 😛
