Mothers are amazing, life-giving, patient, super-beings who should be celebrated year-round; but that doesn’t mean that the occasion of Mother‘s Day (Sunday, May 13) should go by like any other! For all kinds of mothers, sister-mothers, aunt-mothers, grand-mothers, mother-figures, and more – we’ve put together this special Mother‘s Day gifting guide for every want, need, and budget.
Long Distance Lamp Or A Spa: 6 Ways To Tell Mom You Love Her
Whether you’re still living at home, or not – home decor is a great gift for Mums everywhere. We liked these cute ‘bird nest’ lamps for INR 900, and printed pillow covers for INR 500 from The Mud House in Aundh, and beautiful indoor plants and planters from Rise ‘n’ Shine Plant Boutique in Koregaon Park (read our picks here ) for less than INR 500. If you’re feeling fancy, get your Mum some Riedel wine glasses – priced from INR 2530 onwards – at Atelier in Koregaon Park.
The Distance Lamp
People who stay away from home, here’s a super-cool gift that you can give your mom. Say hi to The Distance Lamp – a pair of distance touch lamps that work on WiFi. How does it work? While one of the lamps is kept at your place, the other lamp stays with your mother. Every time your mother taps on her lamp, your lamp will light up indicating that she misses you. You can reply by doing the same. Pretty sweet, right? Priced at INR 5,000, you can buy it here.
A Subscription Plan
Why not gift your Mum something she can enjoy long-term? Subscription plans are the way to go – plus, you can pre-pay for them for an extended period of time, and watch your Mum enjoy them for longer than just a day! We recommend The Artisanal Baking Co.’s Sourdough Subscription (it’s proven to be the most nutritious bread available) – which will deliver a freshly baked new flavour of sourdough bread to your Mum’s doorstep, every week. It’ll cost you INR 800 per month (4 weeks) for full-size loaves, or INR 500 for half-sized ones, and you can read our full recommendation here. If your mum is a confirmed bibliophile, we recommend a subscription plan to Just Books – which has an online and on-ground presence, and will pick-up and deliver books to your home. With flexible subscription plans starting at just INR 900 per month, check them out here.

A Spa Day
Treat your mum to a Spa Day – let her rest, relax, and enjoy being pampered from head-to-toe, for once. Get her the full royal treatment – a blueberry cheesecake spa, a vegan spa, or even a zero gravity spa – at these four unique spas in our recommendation, here.
You could even put together a memory scrapbook for your Mum, and convert old black-and-white photos to colour via Varma Studios in Camp.
