Points when choosing tableware for Mother's Day

Things that enrich your daily life

It is also recommended to watch your everyday conversations with your mother and how she does housework, and give her something that will make her daily life more enjoyable.

Busy mothers often find it difficult to buy tableware for themselves.

It's a good idea to choose items that will enrich your time between housework, such as a cute tea set that will make you look forward to your break time, or a dessert plate that will make your snacks look even better.

Practical things that are nice to have

For mothers who are busy with work and housework, we recommend items that are practical and ``nice to have.''

Stylish clay pots that can be used for cooking and heat-resistant glasses that can be used in the microwave.

Practical items that are both functional and aesthetically pleasing will be appreciated.

Research on a daily basis to find items that are easy to care for and items that will save you time when doing housework.

Simple and easy to use

If you are giving your mother-in-law a gift for the first time and you are unsure of her preferences, choose something simple and high-quality.

For example, it would be a good idea to go for items that are used every day, such as a set of glasses or a tea cup made by an artist, that are a step above the rest.

Furthermore, if it's a plain color or a design that doesn't make too much of an statement, it's hard to differentiate between preferences.

Things you can use with your father

We also recommend a couple's bowl or teacup set that you and your father can use together.

It might be a good idea to gift something that you use every day and that you wouldn't easily replace without an opportunity, or something a little more glamorous that you wouldn't choose for yourself.

Also, Father's Day is the month after Mother's Day, so it would be a good idea to give it on Father's Day as well.

Pair with your favorite things

Speaking of Mother's Day, flower gifts such as carnation arrangements are standard.

For mothers who love flowers, it would be a good idea to give them a set of their favorite things, such as a bouquet and vase, along with tableware.

If you like tea, it would be nice to gift a tea cup and herbal tea.

It is recommended to send with a card

Adding a card in addition to the item will convey your feelings even more.

This is especially recommended if you live far away and cannot hand it over in person.

Sometimes the store will prepare a card for you, but if you include a handwritten letter, it will give a more heartfelt impression.

Also, if you are married, use the joint names of both spouses as the sender.

Market price

The general budget for Mother's Day presents is 3,000 yen to 10,000 yen.

For those who want to celebrate Mother's Day easily, it costs less than 5,000 yen.
If you are looking for something of high quality to give to your particular mother, it might be a good idea to look for something in the range of 8,000 to 10,000 yen.

Also, if you are giving it to a joint name such as a sister, the budget will be slightly higher. I think I can give you something nice.
