It's that time of the year again when we get to show just how much we love our moms. The internet is already flooded with all kinds of Mother’s Day gift ideas. Yet, you are still reading this because you want to do something even better, something that’s worth cherishing for a long time. And this is not just about your mom; it’s also meant for your kid’s mom (your wife, that is), or your sister or your daughter who have children too. Cheers to all the moms!
Say it with a wine
Probably one of the best ways you can say aloud just how much you appreciate them being around is with a bottle of fine wine. A wine can never ditch you; instead, it promises a wonderful time up ahead. Here are a few Mother’s Day gift ideas (for wines, that is) you can go for:
Fortified dessert wines
The perfect pick for moms with a sweet tooth! Made with extra sweet grapes, fortified dessert wines and ice wines make a great gift for the sweetest ladies on Earth. Since fortified wines have a higher alcohol content, we have shortlisted some wines with a lower alcohol percentage. Check out these award-winning wines (with minimal alcohol content) from highly rated wineries yourself:
- Babich The Patriarch Red 2013 Hawke's Bay – 6 Pack ($89/bottle)
- Handpicked Collection Pinot Noir 2015 Mornington Peninsula – 6 Pack ($47/bottle)
- Flying Fish Cove Wildberry Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2013 Margaret River – 12 Pack ($38.99/bottle)
Say it with sparkles
Women love sparkles! If you aren’t sure about the particular wine likings of your mom, gifting a sparkling wine this Mother’s Day will turn out as a safe choice. Sparkling wines from the House of Arras, De Bortoli, Chateau Yaldara and Tahbilk wineries can be some of the best Mother’s Day gift ideas.
The white magic
Sprinkle the white magic of white wines this Mother’s Day. Aussie white wines are loved by all, be it mixed or straight. You can choose among the very popular cool climate Riesling or Chardonnay from Tasmania or Adelaide Hills, or classic white blends from McLaren Vale, Yarra Valley or Margaret River wine regions, as per your mom’s liking.
While the whole world tries to please their moms with roses, you could do it a bit differently with a rosé wine. It is a versatile wine that can be paired with almost any kind of food. Plus it has got every woman’s favourite colour, so you just cannot go wrong with this Mother’s Day gift!
Nothing parallels the refreshing and natural taste of an organic wine. It’s like a bonus for every mom who likes it natural. You can try out Organic Shiraz wine, Organic Chardonnay, or Organic Sem Sauv wine as a Mother’s Day gift. You’ll surely be overwhelmed with her natural smile.
Online wine club subscription
If your mom is a serious wine lover you must let her celebrate every day as a Mother's Day. Subscribe on her behalf for an online wine club like Trophy Club by Just Wines (for free). This will get her a regular delivery of her kind of wines after a couple of months, and at a lower price. Overall, it’ll be a sweet gesture too, and a promise that you’re going to spend quality time with your mom all year round! Her child’s love is the only thing a mother really needs.
Just combine these gifts with some special wordings or poem, and you’re all good to set the tone right for Mother’s Day this year around.
