Show Her Your Love with Gifts of Care and Encouragement this Mother's Day
As everyone here in New Zealand and in many places around the world are currently in nationwide lockdowns due to COVID-19, the celebration of the special women in our lives will potentially look very different this year. However, we can start planning ahead and thinking about ways to show our care, encouragement, appreciation and love on Mother’s Day 2020.
Traditionally, many of us would personally visit our mums, grandmas and the significant women who shape our lives on Mother’s Day. Often our visit includes giving a gift of our love and honour. Popular gift choices include a handmade card with your heartfelt message, a beautiful bouquet of flowers, a delicious box of luxury chocolates, a gift box of handmade cookies, a gift basket of wine and gourmet food, a bottle of bubbles or champagne, some fragranced pamper products, a fragranced calming candle, a special jewellery piece, a comfy bathrobe or a gardening gift set.
If we are fortunate enough to press “play” and return to work before the Mother’s Day weekend in May, Boxit Gifts has a range of beautiful gift ideas we encourage you to view online and add to your wish list to consider your gift of love options. Sending a care package gift by contactless courier delivery directly to her door may well be the perfect answer if many of us are still in our “bubbles” and social distancing is still being practiced. This is especially important for those women in our community who are older, those who are ill or undergoing treatment making them more vulnerable to COVID-19 or those in mandatory self-isolation following travel or as a result of having come into contact with a person diagnosed with the virus.
Let’s consider some of the beautiful gift options available;
Bouquets of Fragranced Flowers
Our Cote Noire fragranced flower bouquets made in Le Mans, France will be sure to please! With a variety of colours, sizes and price points to choose from, these beautiful room diffusers in stylish black glass vases with gold crest decoration will suit any home decor situation. Ideal to beautify and fragrance an entranceway, living room, dining room, bedroom, home office, kitchen or bathroom.
Luxury Chocolates, Handmade Cookies, Gourmet Food & Wine Gift Baskets, Sparkling Wine or Champagne
Boxit Gifts specialises in gourmet treats made right here in New Zealand and around the globe. Many of our gourmet food gift box and gift basket options include a bottle of French Bouvet Brut or Veuve Clicquot Champagne.
Our wine cellar gift options also include New Zealand’s Durvillea wines, made by well known winemaker Simon Waghorn. All aspects of production of the Durvillea classic Marlborough wines range are sustainably certified under the Sustainable Winegrowing New Zealand programme, including all vineyards, the winery and the bottling line.
