I’m planning to get my mom an air fryer. Not only will her new kitchen appliance save her meal prep time but she can also look forward to healthier meals.

A luxury scented candle is always my go-to for a meaningful gift. Try finding a scent you know your mom would like (florals are usually a winner), or an essential oil-infused candle that will calm her mind and uplift her mood. Okra Candles make personalised, ideal gifts.
Vine Lucas, Digital Campaign Manager
I’m considering getting my mom a self-care package because she never does anything special for herself. She’s selfless so she’d rather spend her money on myself and my siblings.

My mom prefers simple gestures so flowers, chocolates and spending quality time with her is a real treat for her.
Walter Hayward, Managing&Syndication Editor
For Mother's Day I'm giving my mom a video call. She lives all the way up in rural Limpopo, while I'm down here in Cape Town. I wish I could give my mom the world (because she deserves it) but for now I'll give her a call.
Lesley Mathys, Group Managing&Syndication Editor
My mom's Mother's Day gift from me this year will be a bouquet of her favourite flower, the protea. They always put a huge smile on her face so I know it will brighten her day.
Anele Geqiwe, Grooming Editor
My mom is the type of person to reject an expensive dinner or bouquet of flowers, and pick something she really needs instead. I know she's due for an eye test and needs new prescription glasses - that's what I'll do to melt her heart. I know it's too simple but that's how practical my mom is.
