Gift moms will love

MOTHERS deserve only the best, that is why on Mother’s Day it is a tough job for us to decide what gift to give her. She would say, “Oh, just give me hug” or “Be a good child”. How do you match such unconditional love?

Of course, it will not stop us from giving a “little something” that will make her feel extra special like she has won the lotto. She will say again, “Ooooh, I love this because I know it comes from your heart”. She has something nice to say to make us feel better.

At this point, we are back to “we can’t match unconditional love” so let us just add a little something to what she loves to collect. A blouse from her favorite clothing brand, a preferred scent, or an accessory to match her well-curated home may tickle her fancy.

Jewelry may work. Unless you can afford to get her a carat of flawless diamond (ok, she will settle for VVS1, I’m sure) or that perfectly sized and shaped South Sea Pearl in the hue she’s after, then do get her that. Gold jewelry is beautiful too but the interesting ones can break the bank.

Have you thought of giving her something as interesting but will cost less—like silver jewelry?

At T’nalak Home in Abreeza Mall, it’s not all about the beautiful Mindanao-made home accessories. The store sells well-crafted fashion accessories as well and silver jewelry is included.

Why give mom silver jewelry? Silver is also a precious metal and can be crafted into most interesting designs from understated elegance to conversation piece. If you love chunky designs, crafting it from silver is your best bet. It will cost you a fraction of what it will cost in gold.

Coming from you, she will call the silver jewelry you gifted her as, “My precious”.

Check out the silver jewelry collection at T’nalak Home. It is stylish, precious and priced affordably. With mom wearing it, I am pretty sure, she will be the envy of her friends—in Sunday service or the mahjong session (tee-hee).

Happy Mother’s Day to all moms out there! You are all precious!
