Mother’s Day is Sunday, May 8. We agree: he wouldn’t need a party to show our mom that we love her… But since we can never say “thank you” enough for everything she does for us, maybe we could give him a present that made him happy on this special day. Here is a small selection of gifts that will delight all mothers.
Even if you don’t have to wait for Mother’s Day to spoil your mom and tell her you love her, you can still grab the chance to give her a little surprise. But inspiration sometimes doesn’t find a small gift that will please him and suit his personality.
That’s why we’ve put together a small list of ideas for things to give your mom. Whether she’s flirty, foodie, or decorating lover, you’re bound to find a gift that looks like her and she’ll love.
For mothers who love design and coffee
Your mother can’t start her day without a good cup of coffee and loves beautiful objects? Then he might like the new Nescafe Dolce Gusto coffee machine: the Infinissima Touch, in Taupe or Pantone Black. This new machine combines delicious coffees with a very pure aesthetic. In addition, this new machine has a number of extra and practical features, such as a touchscreen, pressure up to 15 bar, eco mode and an XL tank, which is easy to clean and fill.

Being offered chocolate is always a pleasure! On the occasion of Mother’s Day, the Chocolaterie Galler made some beautiful boxes in collaboration with Ardent Spirits: a half gin, half chocolate box. An original gift, but that remains a safe bet. There are two boxes available, in limited edition: one stronger in chocolate, the other stronger in gin! In the first you will find a miniature 100 ml bottle of gin and a wide range of mini tablets, pralines and rawits. The second contains a nice 500 ml bottle of gin and matching Mini Tablets. And to combine the two delicacies, it is recommended to grate a 70% Dark Mini Bar over the cocktail.
