6 Thoughtful Gifts to Give Your Nigerian Mother for Mother’s Day

March 27, 2022

Mother’s day is a time to show your mother how much you care about her. What better way to do that than with these thoughtful gifts.

1) Grandchildren

Nigerian mothers are always looking for grandchildren. This mother’s day, just surprise her with a grandchild. It doesn’t matter that it takes nine months for a child to cook, that’s why the gift will be extra special. She wouldn’t be expecting it.

2) Peace of mind

She didn’t kill her mother, so why will you kill her? Peace that passed all understanding is what she deserves and that’s what you should give her this Mother’s Day. Don’t stress her and everyone will be okay.

3) An in-law

Mother’s Day is on a Sunday and there’s no better day to have a wedding. All the churches are full so you don’t even need to get guests. Just burst inside any of the churches and have them declare you married.

4) A robot to help her bring the remote control

One thing your mum will do? Call you from your room to bring the remote control. Getting her a robot to help her bring the remote control will not only help her, but help you. Consider it a 2 for 1 gift.

5) Extra audacity

Nigerian mothers have audacity in droves, but they can never have enough. Just realise that the more audacity she has, the more difficult she’d be to deal with, so gift with caution.

6) A notebook with all her passwords

All her passwords in a small notebook so it can fit in her bag and she can stop calling you. Since you’re writing the passwords down, it’s also a labour of love.
