While it might be difficult to get the perfect gift for your mother, tapping into their interests and hobbies might be a good first step.

If you are still unsure of what to get, here are five gift suggestions based on various interests and hobbies.

5. The cooking mama

For mothers who are home cooks, kitchenwares might make for practical gifts. Blvnd’s portable blender is a functional device that would be helpful in preparing various dishes.

Though it is not as powerful as a cooking blender, it is still suitable for preparation of juices, acai and drinks of all sorts. The portable blender ($54.99) comes in two colours – white and pink. 

A full charge would require two hours. The blender can be used up to 15 times per charge.
