We all know the eye roll - the one we get when talking about Mother’s Day gifts for our moms. There’s always at least that one person who goes on about “made up holidays” and “concern for our mothers being a daily thing” as opposed to one day a year. We get it. We don’t need reminders to think of our moms. Most of us talk to our mothers every day - with one meaningful conversation about *her* life a week (at least). We’re all clued into what her challenges are, her fears and the things that bring her the greatest joys. We all know what her aspirations are and what she’s really dreaming of doing in the next 5 years.
If that gave you a little twinge in your chest, we’ve made our point. And it isn’t with an intent to criticise. Far from it. Hey, we’re in the same boat too! Maybe it says something about us that we need a day like Mother’s Day, or maybe it is an acknowledgement of how disconnected our lives are today. (And no, we are not going to go into the evils of technology/social media/TV/consumerism/whatever else)
There was a time when our worlds revolved around mom. She was the most important person in our lives. Her opinion mattered. And she was the smartest, wisest person we knew. She was the guide we turned to - most of us still do. She was the most beautiful woman in the world. She shaped who we are today - in so many little ways. Through kind gestures, stern words, smiles and angry stares alike.
So while we’d all love to find the right words that really communicate to our mothers what rockstars they are, and how much we love and appreciate them... it’s hard. (And this, from a bunch of writers!) This is why the right gift matters as much as it does. It isn’t about the money, the exclusivity, or any of that stuff. It’s about how it makes *her* feel.
Which is why we’re so in love with RADO’s range of timepieces for women. Pick any, and what you hold in your hand is a timeless masterpiece of craftsmanship and taste. Each watch has a personality - some bold, some delicate, some enigmatic… and all, singularly, beautiful. There’s one there that perfectly matches mom.
Take for instance, the Centrix Automatic Diamonds Open Heart timepiece. Striking in stainless steel, with a dial studded with sapphire crystals. It makes a bold style statement for any occasion. The Hyperchrome Diamond watch that is enigmatic, and glamorous, and sporty… in beautiful metallic lines that work with all skin tones. Or the True Thinline Diamond timepiece that is the embodiment of understated elegance. Its delicate lines belie the strength and durability that sits behind it.
So whether she wears it only on special occasions, or as a badge of pride whenever she’s out with her friends… this Mother's Day, give your mother something that fills her heart up, each time she looks at it.
