On May 12, the world celebrates Mother’s Day which offers you important opportunities to reflect on the profound value of motherhood. It’s nice to have a mom who understands, reassures, comforts and wills to step into the messy parts of our lives. Being a mom is a messy, wonderful, chaotic, beautiful journey. What other ways to appreciate the woman who brought you to life than to arrange a special day or get a special something for her. Here are a few ideas our interns Kyaw Soe Han and Min Pyae Sone have brainstormed what you can do for your beloved mom.

Gifts

Electric Massager
Massages are appreciated regardless of age and leisure especially at the end of a long day. These electric massagers will keep her relax and serves as a mode of mental therapy. Based on this, why don’t you let your mommy bear indulges in the pleasures of an electric backrub? Undoubtedly, daily massage for less than US$ 30 is the most thoughtful gift you can get for your mother.
