Mother’s Day gift ideas to light up her day

1 April 2019

Mums don’t often get the recognition they deserve. They feed us, clothe us and love us unconditionally — and they do it all without expecting anything in return. If you want to make sure your mum knows she’s the light of your life, match the type of mother she is — the Trendsetter, the Techie, the Fashionista or the Fitness Buff — and find a unique Mother’s Day gift to truly light up her day.

The Trendsetter

Always looking for ways to add the latest piece of décor to her home, the Trendsetter simply wants to make her house a home — provided it’s both in style and her style. The Trendsetter scours social media, posting her own favourite pieces (and selfies, of course!), bookmarking her must-haves, and following social media influencers to find out what’s on trend.

Make her day by giving her the gift of instant ambiance: the White and Colour Ambiance Starter kit allows her to tap into 16 million colours and thousands of shades of white light, giving her the ability to adjust her home’s décor with just the tap of a button. And with plenty of lighting fixtures to choose from, she’ll have enough content to fill her Pinterest board for years to come.

Tip: If she’s already got her Philips Hue smart lighting system set up, give her a few Hue Outdoor lights- pedestals, outdoor lightstrip, spotlights and more. These stylish and weatherproof outdoor lights are perfect for bringing her outdoor space to life this spring season.

The Techie

These mums defy the “parents just don’t understand” mentality and often take their love of technology beyond the typical tech lover’s latest model phone or super-fast computer; they’re fascinated by more unique gadgets, especially when they make home life more streamlined.

The White and Colour Starter kit perfectly complements the Techie’s love of home automation and the latest trends in all things smart. This Mother’s Day gift gives her smart lights that do what she wants, when she wants — all with the touch of a button in the Hue app — and the freedom to place smart bulbs in any fixture in her home.

Tip: Tech-loving mums are always up-to-date on the latest trends in tech, meaning she may already have the White and Colour Starter kit. If she does, the
